Just submitted a third look for the NARS Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself Makeup Challenge. I chose this look because it reminded me of the 80s purple eye with red lips spotted at Giorgio Armani A/W 2009. So check it out and vote for me if you like what you see!
For years, I have been using MAC Microfine Refinisher ($26.50) and I always go back to it.
The scrub contains “microfine crystals used in professional micro-dermabrasion to gently slough and refinish the skin, leaving it smooth, soft, naturally glowing”.
I use this on both my face and body and it is one of the most effective exfoliators out there. Although the beads are really fine, do not be fooled by their size as they can be quite abrasive.
A little also goes a long way and it always gets rid of all my flakes without irritating or drying out my skin, leaving it feeling oh-so-smooth. Everyone should keep a tube handy!
When I read that British singer Cheryl Cole swears by Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream – a British drugstore treatment to treat nappy rash – for blemishes, I was really tempted to try it out for myself. But the thought of applying something that is meant for your buttocks on your face (same as using Preparation H for undereye bags) just seems a little off to me. So once I found out that about the new Sudocrem Skin Care Cream, which by the way, has absolutely NO mention of buttocks anywhere, I immediately got a tube shipped to me straight from the UK.
Besides the New Order Highlighting Blush Powder, another product that caught my eye from the NARS Summer 2011 collection was Dogon Duo Eyeshadow.

After my makeover with NARS National Artist Austin Mark, I brought home some goodies from the latest NARS Summer 2011 Collection, including the New Order Highlighting Blush.
