Brace yourself for a loooooong rambling message, however what else is new?


Hey, babe, it’s me Karen! desire you were there. concern for ya — are you complimentary on April 15th? You’re not gonna believe this, however I got an invite to a celebration as well as requirement you to be my plus one.

Before you answer, the hold is François Nars…

CRAZYPANTS, RIGHT!? It’s pool celebration with François-freaking-Nars!

It’s for their new summertime collection and, uh, I’m already stressing about what to wear. Sinä ymmärrät minua!

The 12-piece NARS adult Swim Collection, new for summertime 2014
So, adult Swim — that’s the theme, however I’m quite sure it doesn’t have anything to do keeping that animation channel…

Oh, however can you picture if it did? We roll up as well as Stewie from the household person is there having a attractive party.

EWWW! Yeah, I might not manage that.

I believe it’s a lot more along the sultry pool celebration lines, as well as no, you cannot show up in your swim cap as well as goggles, you dork! I am not about to let you jump in the pool as well as do laps in front of François.

Because I understand you want to.

Priscilla Lip Gloss on my lips
The invite doesn’t state anything about attire, however I’m guessing bikinis, stilettos — basically, I believe if we gown for a rooftop pool celebration at a truly costly new York hotel, we’ll be alright.

Tropical Princess Duo Eyeshadow, $34

Tropical Princess Duo Eyeshadow, $34
And the for makeup, for you I’m believing we must do a tropical princess theme. Lime eco-friendly on your lids with an icy lavender along your lower lash line, ooh-la-la.

We’ll utilize the new NARS tropical Princess Duo Eyeshadow ($34).

Those metallic completes are just so dramatic, as well as I understand you like drawing interest to your eyes. We can even wet the shadows very first to make them look a lot more shimmery.

Oh, boy, this is a long message, isn’t it…?

Anywho! If you’re not feelin’ the incredibly high shine, or if you’re stressing about the frosty completes highlighting your fine lines (yes, dear, you do have fine lines), then we’ll just buff one of the shades on your lids with a domed fluffy brush, as well as do a light laundry of shimmery color.

Don’t concern about the fallout, either. With this, it ain’t no thing.

Malaaca single Eyeshadow, $24

Malacca single Eyeshadow, $24
For me, I’m going smokey — huge surprise! There’s a couple of things in the collection that are absolutely my smokey style, like the Malaaca single Eyeshadow ($24).

HOLY WOW, EGYPTIAN MAU! So pretty… It’s like a peacock feather in a pan, as well as it’s absolutely, freakishly gorgeous. It’s absolutely my preferred thing in the summertime collection, hands down.

Basically, it’s like MAC Club, however with less intense dark brown tones as well as a lot more teal.

Baalbek Eye Paint, $25

Baalbek Eye Paint, $25
Malaaca looks AMAZE-BALLS layered with Baalbek Eye paint ($25), by the way, the one lonely gel liner in adult Swim.

Baalbek is an intense shimmery bronze — gorgeous on it’s own, however layer it under Malacca since the two are like RyGos as well as Rachel from The Notebook together. Baalbek’s bronze intensifies Malaaca’s teal, as well as then there’s the shimmering bronze shine peeking through…

Super siisti. My new preferred smokey eye.

Lost coastline Duo Eyeshadow, $34

Lost coastline Duo Eyeshadow, $34
Sorry! I understand this is a long message, however I’m nearly done.

There are likewise two a lot more eye pieces in the collection — lost coastline Duo Eyeshadow ($34), which homes a golden pewter as well as a lilac; as well as a creamy, rosy quartz Soft Touch shadow Pencil called Iraklion ($24).

I believe lost coastline would most likely be much better for daytime eye looks, considering that the shadows are muted, so perhaps not perfect for the party, presuming it runs late. I mean, they’re pigmented, however absolutely not as fancy as tropical Princess or Malacca.

Iraklion Soft Touch shadow Pencil,$24

Iraklion Soft Touch shadow Pencil, $24
If you’re wondering about Iraklion, I don’t know. It creases within minutes on me, so I believe perhaps we must put that a person aside for now.

Hot Sand liquid Illuminator, $30

NARS hot Sand Illuminator, $30
As for our cheeks, there are no blushes in the adult Swim collection, however I’m awesome just using the hot Sand liquid Illuminator ($30).

I’m going with a dewy skin phase anyway, as well as this peachy, champagne liquid highlighter must be best that that. I like to pat it on my cheekbones, ideal around the middle of the forehead as well as down the bridge of my nose with a flat foundation brush.

Totally subtle however still noticeable. Fresh however not excessively shiny.

And don’t trip about having to reapply. It lasts all the time on me.

Lip Glosses in Turkish Delight, Orgasm, Wonder, Salamanca as well as Priscilla, $26 each

Lip Glosses from the top down: Priscilla, Salamanca, Wonder, Orgasm as well as Turkish pleasure ($26 each)
For lips now, considering that I’ll be using smokey eyes, I’m opting for Turkish pleasure or Orgasm Lip Gloss ($26 each).

Yup, both are from adult Swim, as well as yes, they’re in new packaging! NARS totally revamped as well as repackaged their Lip Gloss line (which is separate from their larger Than Life Lip Glosses, incidentally), providing it a new silkier, smoother formula.

And you’ll most likely like this: they ditched the obnoxious plasticky flavor as well as scent, whoop-whoop!

We’ll talk a lot more about the Lip Gloss line when I see you, however generally they’re non-sticky, incredibly smooth, as well as last from 2-4 hours.

NARS brought creamy light pink Turkish pleasure over from their previous Lip Gloss line. It’s your quintessential glossy nude lip, as well as I like it since you can really see it on pigmented lips.

I don’t have to jump with any type of hoops to get it to show up. It’s just a straight-up creamy pink nude gloss. If you don’t have it yet, you requirement it.

Or I may do Orgasm Lip Gloss instead. that a person was likewise carried over from their previous lipgloss collection, as well as it’s the exact same lurvely peachy gold.

For your lips, considering that we’re doing eco-friendly as well as purple for your tropical Princess eyes, I believe we must opt for a complementary color from the opposite side of the spectrum, so either an orange or pink, like Wonder, Salamanca or Priscilla from the adult Swim collection.

The NARS adult Swim Collection Lip Glosses in Wonder, Salamanca as well as Priscilla

Wonder — Wonder, a creamy, sheer mandarin orange with barely-there pink as well as gold shimmer, is one more carryover from the previous line.
While rather visible in swatches, it’s harder to see on my lips. If you’re expecting a burst of disco glittery goodness, you’re not going to discover it in this tube.

I do believe it’s beautiful, though, as well as orange lips are having a moment…

Sorry, breaking poor ref.

This sheer bright pink flamingo gloss absolutely rings my bell. A new addition to the NARS Lipgloss Line, it’s swiftly ending up being one of my pink gloss favorites.

So juicy… So sheer… So shiny…

It just screams hot summertime nights as well as spontaneous adventure!

This is a color you wear when you want to get into trouble.

Priscilla — A hot pink with bluish undertones, Priscilla is likewise new to the NARS Lip Gloss line. like MAC Pink Poodle, however without the silver glitter, I believe it’s the most pigmented of the five Lip Glosses in the summertime collection.
Yes, it’s bold, however the truth that it’s not completely opaque keeps it wearable.

You might absolutely rock this, no prob.

Libertango nail Polish, $19

Libertango nail Polish, $19
I’m sorry about the length of this message, babe, however I’m nearly done.

Last, however not least, our nails. I state we both wear Libertango ($19). It’s like MAC woman risk Lipstick in nail polish form. two coats of this pigmented reddish coral will do fine.
