Sephora Haul! NARS and Illamasqua!

Hey Guys!
I purchased a few things online from Sephora a few days ago and received my package today! I’m so excited to try everything!
Onto what I purchased…
1) NARS Bronzing Powder in “Irresistiblement” – A terracotta toned bronzer.. rather than a brown toned bronzer. I’ve read this is somewhat similar to MAC Smooth Harmony Beauty Powder.. so I’m excited to see if they are anything alike.. since I love Smooth Harmony! (It was a limited edition item. I have it from the Heatherette Collection)
2) NARS Single Eyeshadow in “Bali” –  A pigmented neutral taupe.
3) NARS Single Eyeshadow in “Coconut Grove” – A very pigmented, deep brown.
4) Illamasqua Lipstick in “Obey” – I was stuck between Brink, Fable, Obey, Over and Test. In the end, I chose Obey. It’s a matte, pink peach/coral.
5) Illamasqua Powder Blusher in “Lover” – I’m on the hunt for a peach blush.. It was described on the website as a “vibrant apricot”. Looking at Lover, it doesn’t look like what I had invisioned. I was looking for a peach blush with no pink tones.. because anything peach with pink all looks the same on my skintone. Like Nars Orgasm.. or MAC Springsheen. It’s very aggravating. I did own MAC Peaches, but ended up swapping it.. because it still wasn’t what I was really looking for. It was too coral on my cheeks. I hope Lover looks better on my cheeks than it does in the pan.
I’ll have swatches and photos of these products up for you soon!
Do you own any of these products??

  1. I'm a little bit lighter skin tone than you but I really like Mac's Melba blush. (since you're looking for something peach) If you don't already own it, you should go by the Mac counter sometime and swatch it!


  2. If you are looking for a great peachy blush — check out Chanel Espeigle. It is so gorgeous! They also have one called In Love that is more of an orangey-peach. I think Chanel has the best blushes!


  3. I've been waiting for them to restock on the Lover.. I guess it's back in stock?? hmmm… I wonder why I never got an email… great haul though… can't wait for u to do a look using those especially Lover


  4. I recommend you check out Mac's Melba blush. I'm sure you know about KarlaSugar's swatch blog; it looks truly peach in her pictures🙂


  5. id love to see u wearing the NARS stuff ,, since i can get a hold of them ,, and i trust ur choices and color picks cuz we kind of have similar skin tones =)
    thx hun ,, and that blush looks super cute ,, am sucker for pinks


  6. I just picked up “lover” when I was a in Vegas a few weeks ago and I must say that I love it and the scent it has. It's definitely the peachy toned blush I was looking for…as NARS orgasm isn't quite what I wanted either. Guess it depends on a person's skin-tone!
    Great haul overall!
