|MSG allergy was going strong after, but it was worth it!|
It actually outlived all of that! Now THAT'S a lipstick. Onto the swatch. *WARNING* This swatch is NSFW.

|Everything came nicely packaged. Presentation is very important.|
|Here's the rundown of the full sizes and prices. The blush is actually full size!|
|AMAZING OR WHAT?? If It wasn't for Birchbox I would have never tried this; very unfortunate because It's such a wonderful product.|

|Surprise! Took this last week but never uploaded. Used Edward Bess shadows in Storm (lid) and Mystery (crease), pinky white shadow from Yves Saint Laurent Chromatics #19 palette (inner corners), MAC Brule (highlighter), and Blacktrack.|

I have more MUFE reds coming up, so stay tuned! Thanks for reading! :)
Thanks for reading!
I was looking for a dupe of Lancome Shimmer Mocha Havana so I thought I should check out NARS to see if they had one. I mean, It's NARS, they pretty much thought of every blush color possible so I knew I would find one (well, Illamasqua does have a yellow blush, but I don't know if it really does count as a blush). Sure enough, there was Lovejoy ($27 for 0.16oz). It is not only a dupe, It's much prettier. This is a warm rosy bronze Dulce de Leche color with gold shimmer. Like my cheeks but better. Since It's NARS It of course has the amazing texture and pigmentation you would expect.
|Without flash; closer to real life.|
|Notice the shimmer all over my arm? I had just gotten back from Sephora and I had serious swatch arm!<3|
|It's a little more bronze IRL.|
Thanks for reading!
The l/s is very very moisturizing and applies feels like a balm. This wears longer than any other of my l/s. Again a little goes a long way; highly pigmented.

I hope someday they come out with e/s singles and powder blushes.
E/s are $38, Creme bronzer (or blush/bronzer duo), $40, and l/s $30. I love Hourglass, worth every penny.
Thanks for reading!<3
