Review: NARS The Foreplay Cheek Palette

Hi beauties!! I am gonna be doing a review today for NARS the Foreplay Cheek Palette. I have been eying this product for a long time, and I finally got it last month. At first I did not know the concept of it, but then I did some research, and yes... it's worth it, especially if you are a fan of the Orgasm blush.

If you are a makeup junkie like me, I am 99.9% sure you have the Orgasm blush in your makeup drawer. Because this blush is like a cult's favorite, NARS decided to make Orgasm as the prime in the palette.

Inside the palette, Orgasm has the biggest pan and it is surrounded by three beautiful shades. They do not have a name, but the rosy color reminds me of Amour blush, the bright fuchsia shade reminds me of Mata Hari, and the gold shimmer one is just like Albatross only when you swatch it.

So the concept of the Foreplay cheek palette is that you can customize your own Orgasm shade. If you want it to be pinker, add the bright fuchsia color. If you want a darker and more matte Orgasm, mix it with the rosy shade. Last but not least, mix the Orgasm with the gold shimmer to add more glitters and more fun for your night! He he he. Or you can just wear each of the shade on its own! Sometimes I even like to mix all the four colors together.

This cheek palette is surely not a necessity, so I don't force you that you MUST have it, but if you have money to spend and you are in search of good blushes, then I'd recommend this one. NARS blushes are so pigmented and long-wearing, their products are really high quality. It is $49 and you can only get it at Sephora for limited time only. $49 dollars for four blushes? and by NARS? Not bad. And I am pretty sure this will last you a long time!

Where to buy: Sephora, $49 for 0.36 oz.

What's in My Traincase?

Hi beauties!! You know when you have so many makeup collection, and you have to open your makeup drawers one by one just to find ONE product? It takes so much time! So I like to have my everyday makeup products in one place, so that I can grab it really quick and easy. I put mine in a small traincase that I got from Stila (it has been discontinued), and my morning makeup routine will be done so much faster!

Like I said before, I just put my essential makeup products in the traincase, such as foundation, concealer, powder, bronzer, mascara, liners, eye primer, and lip balm. This idea will also be great if you do not have that many makeup stuffs. Instead of saving them in drawers, you can put them in a traincase/makeup bag, so that you can carry it anywhere! :)

Lets see what's inside!

So once you open my traincase, you'll see these two compartments. The left one I fill it with eye stuffs (and a lip balm), and face makeup for the other one. On the left side, I have: 
Whereas on the right side, I have: 

Under the two compartments, there is one large compartment where I put stuffs that are larger size. I have: 
I do not put blushes, highlighters or lipsticks because the Smashbox Masterclass palette has all of them! 

Fun fact about this traincase: it comes with a speaker and a cord, so you can pluggin it to your ipod and listen to music while you're doing makeup! (but honestly, I only did this once since I have this traincase..hehe).

I keep changing the products inside when I have new favorites (especially mascaras!)... But foundation and concealer always remain the same.. :)

What do you think of this idea? Will you try it out? Let me know in the comment below! 

Lets be friends! 


See you in the next post! 


Two of My Biggest Fall Essentials

Hi lovelies! Today I just wanna share about two of my most important things for the Fall/Winter! And they are...

1. Ugg boots. Who doesn't love Ugg boots? They are the most comfy boots out there. I know they are pricey but it is so worth it. The quality is really nice and it will last you forever. I have owned this pair of knit boots for tree years and they have not worn out yet. I wear this on every fall/winter like everyday! So I believe in investing your money in a good pair of Ugg boots!

2. Infinity Scarf. I love scarfs! Can't leave the house without one on my neck. But my favorite one is the infinity ones because they have no end, so you can just cozy up with it on your neck. It makes you so warm!

I still have so many Fall/Winter outfit essentials, I will keep posting on that!
