At Last!

I was able to cross off two on my Makeup Wish List this Christmas:

Nars15 Wild at Heart Palette and you guessed it! The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler- Finally!

I just wanted a Nars palette, period. I wasn’t really lemming for this limited edition palette. I just knew that I wanted a palette that I can use everyday and the Orgasm blush. When Cherry (SA) said that this included the Orgasm blush, I was like, SOLD!

As you may have noticed, the palette is already smudged with different makeup. That’s because I’ve been using this everyday since I bought it. = )

The eyeshadows are:
Abyssinia, Alhambra, Ashes to Ashes and Pandora

Orgasm, The Multiple in South Beach

Lip Lacquer:
Baby Doll, Red Lizard, Manhunt, Fire Down Below

I’m really proud of this palette and I can really say that it’s a good buy. I’m being very careful with it to the point that I still keep it in its original box.

Here’s a quick pic of my eyelash curler:

I’m also using this everyday. When this first came out, I was like, what’s all the hype? It’s still just an eyelash curler. When I first used it, I immediately felt the difference and concluded that this is not JUST an eyelash curler.  The best part is, I got this for only Php850! Rustan’s was on sale the day I decided to buy makeup and perfume!

I made an EOTD using the palette and the curler:

I used Alhambra all over the lid then Abyssinia to highlight the inner corners of my eye and below the eyebrow. I then applied Ashes to Ashes on the crease and blended it. For the eye liner, I used my Maybelline gel liner brush (review coming) wet and dipped it in Pandora. I didn’t do a full look because I have yet to master photographing my entire face and make all the colors show. Mascara used is by Maybelline which I will make a review of next.

I was surprised that even with an eye shadow base, the colors really don’t last the whole day and that’s just when I’m in the mall. There’s still a bit of color when I get home but I can hardly see the difference in shades. Maybe it’s because the shades are too light. Next time I will apply more. The blush, on the other hand, lasts and the lip lacquer also lasts for a considerable amount of time. I did the EOTD just a few hours ago and the Pandora e/s smudged a bit on my left eye. Maybe it needed to dry more. I’ll try to use this as an eye liner when I go out.

On another note, MB was laughing when he saw me applying ‘NARS’. That’s how he said it, “O, bakit ka naglalagay ng Nars?" when he knows that I’m not leaving the house. He’s been sick for a few days now and he didn’t go to work today because of fever that’s why I’m the designated yaya. Told him, I wanted to be in Nars while taking care of him. Haha! A girl’s gotta be glamorous right?


  1. That palette used to be in my make up wish list too! However, I own almost all the colors in this palette so it's a bummer for me to purchase one. (Ashes to Ashes lang ang kulang) Although I'm eyeing the Everlasting Love palette! :)

  2. Nice wishlist E! More FOTD/EOTD na yan ha?

  3. @Bec: I actually thought that you already have this palette! I always remember you when I see Nars. = )

    @Kitten: Yes, I shot about 2 more EOTD's yesterday! MB made a few adjustments on my vanity that's why the light is better.

  4. I see, that's good, and yes mas maganda lighting mo sa room now, the color pops out better and mas clear photos mo now.
