HAUL | NARS FINAL CUT COLLECTION 2014

The Nars Final Cut Collection - new edge of pink is the perfect combo for this spring floral prints and cut dresses.


The collection includes 4 blushes and matching satin lip pencils, and a illuminator...

I picked up the Final Cut blush from the collection as I really like coral colours on my cheeks and on the lips I picked up the satin lip pencil in Descanso which is a pinky mauve; a my lips but better colour.

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Descanso | NARS Blush in Final Cut

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Descanso:
The Satin Lip Pencil has a mild amaretto scent. On my lips its transfers into a pinky mauve colour as my lips are quite pigmented. The pencil its self  is creamy and pigmented.
If you have dry lips make sure to exfoliate before applying it on your lips as it will make it prominent. For me the downfall of the lip pencil is that you have to sharpen it once its goes blunt, so it can be wasteful and unhygenic but with so many pretty colour selection from the permanent line and the occasion limited editions its hard to resist.

NARS Blush in Final Cut:
It matte finish and on the cheeks is turns into a pinky peach tone. From swatching the blush with my finger, it is very smooth but the pigmentation was quiet sheer. However using a brush to pick up the product the blush is very pigmented so be sure you use a light hand because you can definitely over blush with this!

REVIEW | LANCÔME VISIONNAIRE

From normal, dry, oily to sensitive skin, we all different skin type and have specific needs, so its important to understand your skin especially your face as it is more likely to exposed to pollution and dirt than the rest of your body. The Lancome Visionnaire claims to reduce the appear of wrinkles, minimise pores and even out uneven skin tone.


The Lancome Visionnaire suggests to use it along side with the Lancome Gènifique, which I did use at the beginning, however I found that the Genifique didn't do much for my skin and once the bottled finished I just stopped using it. The Visionnaire has a mild perfume scent which fades after a few minutes. Like most serum it comes in a bottle with a pump. The product it self is a light white gel formula that goes clear once rubbed into the face.

I've been using the serum for the last 2 month as a face lotion and I absolutely love it! It is lightweight formula that doesn't break me out, nor dose it give me any allergic reaction and at the same time it gives me soft to the touch skin. It has helped with evening out my skin tone and correcting any hyper-pigmentation that I have had from previous blemishes. For minimise pores and wrinkles I haven't seen much effect to those claims yet.


If your looking for a product to even out your skin tone, give this a go. At £82 a bottle its is a luxury product but definitely worth it if it works for you, and in my case it really has.
