SOLD: NARS Sheer Glow

I have for sale a bottle of Nars Sheer Glow foundation in the shade Gobi.

It has been used a maximum of three times.

I colour matched myself to this shade with the help of Temptalia's Foundation Matrix. In reference to MAC shades, this would be the equivalent of NC15. I'm slightly lighter than this so this foundation is not an exact match to my skin tone.

This was purchased from HQ Hair for £29 and am selling for £18.00 including postage and packaging.

Please note that I no longer have the box and I will only ship to the UK.

If your interested please leave me a comment with your paypal email address so that I can invoice you. It will be first come first serve :)

Tempting FOTD

Today's "Face of the Day" consisted of a few products I haven't used in a very long time but I have to say I really like the results.

For foundation I used my NARS Sheer Glow in Sante Fe. This will be the third time i've ever used it considering I purchased it in December. I find this foundation really hard to describe. One word that sort of sums it up for me is "magical" (cheesy, I know). It blends in effortlessly, cutting down the application process and leaves a luminous glow. For those who suffer from dry/flaky skin like me this doesn't cling to it and I haven't needed to touch it up. Overall this gets two thumbs up from me!

Now onto the cheeks. For my contour I used Expresso by NYX. I found it best to use the tiniest amount as it's quite pigmented and just build it up. I'm also going to try using this as a blush. So we'll see how it compares with my skin tone. On lazy days I usually just apply a darker blush which adds colour to my cheeks but also contours at the same time. This could be one of those blushes.

Lastly the eyes. I started with Gleam by MAC on the first third of the lid and inner corner followed by a light dusting of Tempting on top. I was going to leave it at that but instead I added some Carbon to darken the crease. I finished the eyes with some fluidline and a slick of mascara.

Feel free to leave me a comment with your current shadow combinations. I'm always looking for new ideas :)
