Femme Fetch: NARS Illuminator

Loving my NARS Illuminator in the shade Laguna, especially for the summer. This stuff works great on the body and face. Decent amount of wear time but keep it in your purse for long days or nights. Best applied or at least blended with fingers. 

Mix High &Low: Pair the Nars Illuminator of your choice with one of the Tango with Bronzing Powders from NYX Cosmetics. The powder will add a bit more dimension to your glow and also work to set the NARS Illuminator for longer wear.

Femme Fetch: e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzer in St. Lucia 

Loving the blush/bronzer combo from e.l.f cosmetics!!!! I have been impressed by e.l.f. a few times before, the line is pretty solid considering the price point. 

I picked up the duo in the shade St. Lucia which is supposedly comparable to the NARS Orgasm/ Laguna Duo. The two are definitely similar with wear time and packaging. The difference comes in the pigment pay off, NARS being the better of the two. I get great color from the e.l.f. duo, but takes a bit more product. 

The St. Lucia is the most universal shade of the 3, surprisingly. e.l.f offers two deeper duos, but St. Lucia is definitely my favorite.

Femme Tip: For girls deeper in tone, use the bronzer shade only slightly below the blush shade almost overlapping the two shades. It creates a warmth that looks more natural to darker skin.

Femme Fixation: Cream Blush

I am currently obsessed with cream blush like never before. I honestly am not leaving the house without an amazing cream highlighter and blush these days. The benefit that cream has over powder when it comes to blush is the luminosity, natural finish, and blend-ability. Creams are super easy to blend and look far more natural than any powder could. I love creams for beginners because they are almost mistake proof. The most foolish femme could get the J. lo glow with a cream blush easily. 

Cream Blush Femme Fetches:

  • Urban Decay Afterglow Glide On Cheek Tint ( these are super sheer, great for newbies)
  • Illamasqua Cream Blusher (super pigmented)
  • Nars Cream Blush ( nice alternative to the NARS Multiple creamy finish, last much longer)
  • L’oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Blush ( very sheer and better for the frugal femme)

Try putting on your blush before foundation to get a radiant glow that looks like it comes from within. I firmly believe that cream blush is the modern alternative to your grandmother’s powder “rouge”.

So the Fall Collection for NARS Cosmetics has recently been released and once again I am totally obsessed. My favorites include:

  • Undress Me Multiple - an amazing highlight shade
  • Outlaw Blush- perfect if you want a partial blush/ partial bronzer type of vibe
  • Rouge Tribal Larger Than Life Lipgloss- such a deep sexy red

What is your ultimate Femme Fetch from the NARS Fall Collection or the entire NARS line?

Femme Fetch: NARS Cosmetics Blush in Exhibit A

No one does blush like NARS Cosmetics, I really feel that no other makeup brand can hold a candle to the selection and color pay off of the powder formulas offered by NARS. One of the standouts is the bold, matte red shade Exhibit A. This is the perfect option for ethnic women, specifically darker skin tones and very yellow based skintones. The shade honestly works in some form on everyone though.

The color looks intense in the package, but translates so warm and freshly when diffused properly. If you want to work the intense shade in a more dramatic, femme-tastic way, try it out on the eyes, or even the lips. 

Take a quick look at my cheek makeup tutorial to see Exhibit A in action:

 Future Nars Fall Collection Pieces used for past NYC Fashion Week 

I am obsessing over the new items for the up and coming Nars Fall collection, specifically the Undress Me Multiple, a pale pink with a silvery shimmer. The summer collection was released about a two weeks ago with amazing pieces like the Buenos Aires Velvet Gloss Pencil. 

We got our first look at the new items for fall this past fashion week at shows like the 3.1 Phillip Lim and Thakoon Shows. Along with the Undress Me Multiple, look for the Carpates Stylo Eyeliner. I am not a fan of the stylo eyeliners because they are so difficult to use. The stylo eyeliners are by far the worst product created by Nars. 

Are you excited for the Undress Me Multiple?

NARS Artistry Session- Immaculate Complexion

I am obsessed with NARS as you all know. Here is a nice video featuring the new tinted moisturizer. She preps the model’s skin with the Oil-Free Pro-Prime Pore Refining Primer, which is great. Nars is the ultimate in SPF protection, which everyone needs no matter what your complexion.

 Femme Farewell :Butterfield 8 Lip Lacquer by NARS Cosmetics

I still obsess about getting this shade back into the Nars Collection. The lip lacquer has to have been discontinued for at least a year now. Butterfield 8 was the perfect pinkish brown, I have yet to find a true replacement. Flattering to all femme faces, but was especially amazing on me and my fellow dark girls. I really want to start a campaign to get it back, but maybe that is a bit much, lol.

Check out all the amazing MakeupAlley.com reviews for the product:
