Sample Saturday – NARS

I had an out of body experience, actually I don’t think I am using that term correctly πŸ˜› I was shopping online, like you do and came across these sequin shorts. I thought, I don’t own any sequin shorts. These are the missing element to a perfect wardrobe. There is a reason that I don’t own sequin shorts (or any shorts) because I don’t wear them. But in that moment, I thought that these rose gold, sequin shorts were a necessity. I literally have know idea why or how I convinced myself to purchase these, when they arrived in the mail I was even more baffled – who am I even? They are super cute but will never see the light of day πŸ˜‰ I mean, maybe for Halloween or…? Honestly, are there any other occasions where only sequin shorts will do? I cannot be the only one who has purchased something incredibly asinine with completely faulty rationale.


NARS released a line of Velvet Lip Glides fairly recently and I swatched them in stores and decided to pass. They weren’t quite a lip gloss, not quite a lipstick – the shades were lovely but I just wasn’t into the formulas. When I received a sample of Bound in a Play box I was excited to try it. Bound is a lovely rose pink shade that is flattering and easy to wear. The formula is really like nothing that I had used before, it glides on like a gloss but the opacity is similar to a liquid lipstick. It doesn’t dry down totally matte, but it does set really well on the lips without smudging or feathering. It isn’t drying nor is it tacky, it is extremely comfortable to wear. It smells sweet but not overly so, just a barely there scent. Wear time is much like a gloss or creme lipstick, I touched up a couple of times before eating and then a full reapplication after eating. I don’t mind since is low-maintenance and otherwise fun to wear. If I am wearing a full face, I pair with a liner but it is lovely on its own too.



I love it, I waited ever so patiently for this one to come back in stock – I suspect that everyone who got it in their bag also loved it πŸ™‚ I would definitely pick up a few more shades, they are just so stunning and easy to pop on. I recommend, I don’t think that there is anything that I’ve tried from NARS that I haven’t loved.


Thanks for stopping by <3

    The color looks great! I have definitely done the same thing where I see something I like, buy it, and wonder why I did that! πŸ˜‚ hope you get to wear the shorts!
