NEW! A glowing, satin-finish foundation with sheer and build-able coverage. Replete with skincare benefits and the NARS Complexion Brightening Formula, skin is hydrated, more luminous, softer and smoother. Used daily, Sheer Glow Foundation improves skin brightness, radiance and texture. For normal to dry skin types.
Sephora is currently offering their online Friends and Family 20% off promotion from October 19th – November 2nd (use code FF2009 at checkout). So what better time to test out a few of the products that I have been lemming over the past couple of months. Of those products I knew that I really wanted to try the Nars Sheer Glow foundation because just about everyone I know is raving over this foundation. 

From its dewy glow to the light to medium build-able coverage it offers what's not to like. Well that is what I wanted to know… So over the next couple of weeks I will be testing this product and at the end of the three weeks I will give you my review. Be sure to bookmark this blog and check back to see how this foundation holds up!

Every couturier has forever had a fascination with the mysterious and alluring qualities of Lace.

From Evita to Marlene Dietrich to some of the best-dressed of our red-carpet modern screen stars, it's a long love affair. This salon-intimate collection is all about a dramatic, intense, smoky eye, with shadows that flash frosty grey to deep blue.  

Kohl Power is brought back for a limited time in favorite shades plus a new blackened marine blue. And naturally,44 Lash adds the depth and desire. 
Lips stay pleasingly pale and Nail Lacquer in Light Affair adds a hint of danger. If ever there was a moment to do away with the winter doldrums and add some instant intrigue, this is it.
