Enough babbling, this post is a bit late. Before Christmas a friend and I went to Sephora and did a bit of shopping.
The only reason I made this purchase was because of the $15 off $40+ email I got from Sephora (they are evil that way). My original plan was to get a NARS blush and a UD 24/7 glide pencil. Once I got there, I realized that the blush was $29, instead of what I had remembered at $26 (my friend later told me it has always been $29, I am not sure why I remembered it as $26). The price tag completely changed my plans. With the blush being $29 and the UD liner at $20, that’s close to $50, which means I’ll have to pay $35 out of pocket, and I was trying to cut down on the amount of money I was spending, so I wanted my total to be as close to $40 as possible. So I got a small tube of hand cream (which I am always in need of) at $9, and a sharpener at $4 (I’ll tell you a funny story behind that later). Anyways, so my total came to $42 and I was pretty happy. Obviously, I am not going to blog about the hand cream and sharpener, so here it is, yet another NARS blush for my collection.
Originally on my list were Sex Appeal, Desire, Taos, and Sin. I swatched them all, I don’t know how I ended up with Oasis in the end. I really love Sex Appeal, unfortunately it does not show up as well on skin as it does in the pan, so I gave that one up. Although I am still thinking about…perhaps my next NARS blush (that or the cream blush Enchanted). Anyways, Oasis is a lovely dusty pink with noticeable shimmer. Do I have something like it? of course not (LOL). Here are some swatch pictures.
The shimmer is not that noticeable here, but it’s a subtle shimmer, unlike Angelika or Super Orgasm. Mata Hari is still my current favourite blush, but this is still a lovely blush. My 7th one! 😀 They are like Pokemon! (hence the title of the post).
So funny story about the sharpener. I got it for $4, a friend of mine was looking for a new sharpener, I told her about the one I got, and we went to take a look at the Sephora in Metrotown, it was listed at $7. So I told her I would go look at the Downtown Sephora where I got mine at. I went the very next day, and where the price was suppose to be, there was a sticker over it that said $7. LOL I guess they must have labelled it wrong, but SCORE for me!
Alrighty then~ until next time live well and shop LOTS! 🙂
