Makeup has been my only splurge during this economic downturn, and I’m not sure if that is good or bad! Below I have listed four of my most recent beauty buys that I am absolutely obsessed with. If you are going to splurge on makeup this fall, you should consider the following products/shades!



Nars holiday shadows
in Night Life (silver with silver particles) & Silent Night (gold with gold particles-I am wearing this shade today and it is absolutely gorgeous!) $22 each. In fact the entire Nars holiday collection intrigues me, (before the winter is over, I’ll probably be adding the Super Orgasm blush to my collection)

Christian Dior Iconic Mascara
$27- I have finally found the perfect mascara…the spiral brush does amazing things to your lashes…coats each one completely while simultaneously separating, lengthening and curling your lashes. The formula does not flake, clump, and stays put (seriously, you need to invest in eye makeup remover if you wear this! :)) Personally, I think it is a thousand times better than the original Diorshow.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Last Call (a shimmery, glitter free, pink-plum shade that is gorgeous!) $16. (I am wearing this with the Nars Silent Night today…it looks pretty amazing with gold!)

If you are looking for a deal on beauty products, I suggest checking out some of the many fantastic palettes out there (I suggest Smashbox, Stila, & Urban Decay –all of which have some amazing combinations that also happen to be great deals).

    I love the color choices here that your put together. I plan on buying them from Sephora as soon as I can. I really love the shimmery look without all the glitter. I can’t wait to try the Urban Decay Last Call and the Nars Silent Night that you said look great next to each other.

    I also want to get the Nars blush but I can’t decide if I should get it in Orgasm or Super Orgasm. I saw a review somewhere that said the Super one has a lot of glitter. Have you ever seen them in person?

    Yes, you are correct Super Orgasm has glitter in it while Orgasm is glitter free. The glitter on the skin is very very subtle and just gives you a bit of extra shimmer 🙂
