NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer – AMAZING


I’m on my third tube and it’s only been less than a year. Shu Uemura’s Pro Concealer circa many years ago was the only one i purchased over and over again but once they changed the formula I moved on to Cle De Peau (CDP) but this has to be my favourite.

This is so much more hydrating for use on my under eyes and zits and the best thing is it’s easy to blend, great coverage and stays on.

While it’s pretty cheap $35 from mecca cosmetica the product runs out quickly so while you might be paying around USD$80 for CDP, you will appreciate how much longer it takes before CDP runs out. Having said that CDP doesn’t last as long on the skin as this does. Another gripe is that while they have a wide colour range CDP is a perfect match for me but Biscuit (from NARS) is still a tad darker than I’d like it to be.


NARS Laguna / Orgasm duo

Not often I write about NARS. This was one brand I was head over heels with once upon a time. In my hey day I must’ve had 20 blushers and I dunno how many palettes and eye shadows.

I’ve stopped buying and in fact sold a lot of the palettes on eBay seeing I just wouldn’t use them. Thankfully I got back more than what I paid for them 🙂

I ballooned in 2012 by 6kgs. One fine day and in 3 mths that was the weight I gained. No explanation except maybe hormonal issues. Now to keep my face looking slim I am hugely reliant on bronzer for contouring.

I would’ve bought the bronzer itself but I got a better deal on both so I picked the duo instead. I won’t review orgasm but Laguna is amazing for contouring and suits yellow based skin tone well. It doesn’t look dirty nor like you have anything on. In fact, I use it on my cheeks too. Love it. Available at Sephora for usd41.
