Birthday Treat: Nars Audacious Lipstick in Kelly and Lana

Nars Audacious Lipstick in Kelly (L) and Lana (R)
Oh my!... How long I have been thinking about getting these lippies!... too long lol. I fell in love with Nars Audacious lipsticks when I went to Sephora in Paris and swatched some (or all of them..oops!) of the shades... I was so impressed. Although at that time I couldn't bear spending £24 on a lipstick that isn't a Chanel one. Then finally after 4 months I decided this is time to treat myself (it was also my birthday, haha)! After VERY careful consideration (so much choice) I decided to get shades Kelly and Lana.

Nars Audacious lipstick in Kelly is coral shade of pink (very wearable, shade that would suit anyone)

Nars Audacious lipstick in Lana is a bright, orange shade of red.

The packaging feels luxurious and looks high end.

Both have extremely creamy consistency, they are very easy and comfortable to apply. They are very pigmented and only one swipe is enough for opaque coverage. They last me full 5 hours from when I leave the house to my lunch although they do tend to loose the creamy sheen that you get when you first apply it. Overall, they are very, very good and I would definitely recommend it. So, if you feel like treating yourself... Nars Audacious lipstick could be your answer ;-) Love, A xx

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow Face Sculpt & Highlight

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow
Ahhh... Charlotte Tilbury.. Why did you have to come up with such a beautiful product?... This sculpting duo was on my wish list for some time now (since it launched!) and I finally decided to go for it when I was visiting Selfridges in Manchester. I think I needed to see it in real life - once I did, there was no going back...

Anyway, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous -  it feels so luxurious and sophisticated. Inside, there is a large mirror and two powders - one on the left is a bronzer and the one on the right is highlighter. The powders and soft and blend just perfectly - you do not any or very minimal effort to apply it properly. The bronzer I was most worried about just in case if it turned out to be too dark or too orange for my pale winter complexion. But it just looks so natural on the cheeks! Both the bronzer and highlighter are lovely shades. When applied they lasted me the whole day.
