I love nail polish and wear it regularly, but I don’t really consider it makeup. When I think of makeup I think of lipstick, lip gloss, eyeliner, basically from the neck up. I do wear lip stick and eyeliner sometimes. I just don’t wear them enough to develop any type of proficiency when it comes to application. I am also not good at tracing, outlining, drawing or shading anything. It’s a congenital issue. However, in my ongoing effort to
get my grown woman on appear more polished, I’ve bought some makeup recently and I’m trying to wear at least lipstick and liner twice a week and reapply them at least two times throughout the day. I’ve tried this before but I drink a lot of water during the day so by 11:00am all of my mornings efforts were around the rim of my water bottle and by 11:15 I’d be turning to my old faithfuls.

This time I’m making a vow to touch it up/reapply throughout the day so I’ve been practicing. First up we have NARS Bougainville lip gloss with the MAC Chestnut liner. I know I bought a liner from NARS but I can’t find it….
In the bottle Bougainville is a deep purple, but it applies lighter than it looks. When I bought lipstick in the past I tended to go for colors in this family, mauve, burgundy, pinkish etc.
Next below we have NARS Wonder. I bought this one because I was trying to get away from the pink/purple family and I thought it could be more of a neutral?
This is my first makeup post EVER!
