NARS Blush Deep Throat

The ridiculous name aside, NARS Blush Deep Throat looks quite harmless and even boring. I mean, just look at it. It is a slightly shimmery peachy pink - tame and plain.
I usually much prefer cool toned pink and think there are many more interesting blush colors that NARS offers, so I would have never picked it up for myself if it wasn't for the GWP deal.

POPSUGAR Must Have Box August 2014

I was offered to experience POPSUGAR Must Have Box, which is a subscription box that has a little bit of everything - full sized beauty, fashion, and lifestyle items.
Here are what I received in the August box. (This post is picture heavy.)

NARS Sheer Lipstick Damage

For a sheer lipstick lover who prefers cool-toned colors like me, NARS Sheer Lipstick Damage can easily achieve an "essential" status.
Dolce Vita seems to appeal to a bigger mass supposedly being a "universally flattering" shade, but unfortunately "Life isn't so sweet" on me. If you find Dolce Vita too warm on you, do take a look at Damage instead. It is the Dolce Vita for cool/neutral complexions.

FOTD - Rivoli

I have been reaching for the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Tissé Rivoli (reviewed) quite often, but that is usually for the deep metallic taupe shade which is my favorite. I thought I should show some love for the other colors, too - especially the warm copper, plus I remembered I had Chanel Rouge Coco Rivoli (reviewed) as well.
A quick "Rivoli" face was in order.

NARS Blush Unlawful (Fall 2014)

NARS has managed to bring out yet another unique blush color for this fall.
NARS describes Unlawful Blush as an "amber pink with silver pearls". Gotta love their no-frill-get-to-the-point description of the color, because Unlawful is exactly that.
From the online swatches which looked quite warm and yellow, I did not expect NARS Blush Unlawful to be as flattering on my neutral complexion. I wanted it anyway since the color seemed so unique and complex. Easy justification this time.
