I was at a thing this weekend and there were lots of men (and women) out and about building things and I knew that after this thing I had to grab groceries on the way home, do laundry, start dinner, vacuum, etc, etc and it got me thinking about the modern female. I don’t feel that I am a feminist, I am pretty old-fashioned but I just don’t understand how women are expected to work 40 hours a week and make a home. I find it exhausting and I don’t even have kids. On the flip side – so few men are expected to do anything with their hands anymore and by this I mean, build houses, work on cars, grow things. And no, I am not saying that women cannot also do these things but it seems that the female archetype has stayed much the same while the male archetype has modernized. I don’t know where I am going with this, I just think it is irritating – I’ll do the dishes, build me a house. Not much to ask 😛
Anyway, being in the piss poor mood that I was in this weekend I treated myself to a Sephora run (shocking) and made my first ever NARS purchase.This brand always seemed a little out of my league (that matte, black packaging is just too sophisticated) and I didn’t want to spend the money but I was in a #treatyourself kinda mood. Of course, I had to get a cult favourite and picked The Multiple in Orgasm – obviously. The Multiple is a multi-stick that can be used on eyes, cheeks and lips for a wash of sheer colour. Orgasm is a warm pink with golden shimmer and I am in love. I totally get why this product has such a following – it is perfection. The formula can be easily applied and blended with just your fingers given its creamy consistency. This product is extremely buttery and imparts a gorgeous flush that lasts all day. It played well with my foundation and didn’t break up over the course of the day. I think it is fantastic, I was skeptical at the price point and am using it somewhat sparingly but honestly, so worth it. This has been a fantastic first impression of this brand and I cannot wait to try more. I would love to hear what other products are must haves for other makeup junkies!
