Replenished My NARS Stash

NARS Single Eyeshadow in Ondine, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly, NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base, NARS Semi Matte in Funny Face, Anthropologie earrings


I finally got around to replenishing my NARS workhorses to ride into the new season (yea Fall!): my Radiant Creamy Concealer in Chantilly and my Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. I've also added a new daily essential to wear with my favorite, Funny Face: single eyeshadow in Ondine, a "beigey" plum with some shimmer. The total look is gorgeous: it's very "George Barbier."

Whenever my immune system hits an all-time low, and the outside temperatures bounce from one extreme to the other, it's bound to happen... ::cue ominous orchestral swell:: I get slammed with every head cold combination and variation known to man, including the one I dread most: laryngitis. So as I sit here feeling like I might as well be wearing a muzzle (my voice has checked out for a few), I appreciate the little indulgences that help distract and entertain me.

*NB Frequent liberal spritzes of vanilla perfume are as essential as aspirin: it's aroma therapy.
