NARS Audacious Lipstick - Raquel

NARS Audacious Lipstick Raquel
Hey Lovelies,
I hope you are having a great week! It's my day off today and as I was sat at home rather bored, I thought why not type up another blog post for you all to read. I know, I know, my last 3 posts on here all feature nude lipsticks from various different brands. What can I say other than I love a good nude! My favourite make up look has always some kind of smokey eye paired with a nude lip.
The latest addition to my ever expanding lipstick collection is the NARS Audacious lipstick in the shade Raquel. Everything I try from the brand never disappoints me, and Raquel is no exception. This lipstick is creamy, it's long wearing, doesn't dry out my lips and is basically everything I would expect from a brand like NARS.
Here's a swatch of the lipstick for you to see just how beautiful the colour is:

NARS describe the shade Raquel as a pink beige colour. I simply love how opaque this lipstick is as well as its satin finish! I'm also a big fan of the packaging and the magnetic lid that this lipstick has.
I know it's not exactly THAT different to the last 2 lipsticks I've featured on my blog (which were Kinda Sexy by MAC and Spanish Pink by Tom Ford). What can I say other than I obviously have a type when it comes to lipsticks haha!
Now I hope you don't mind that I am constantly posting lipstick reviews on here. I do have a rather large lipstick collection as you can see...
I guess that I don't really need to buy any more lipsticks and hopefully my next post will something else other than another nude lipstick review haha!
If in the meantime you are interested in picking up the NARS Audacious lipstick in the shade Raquel, you can do so online or at your nearest NARS counter. All NARS Audacious lipsticks retail for £24.00 and I think they are certainly worth the price tag.
Have you ever tried any lipsticks from NARS? Which one is your favourite?
As always thank you for reading and until next time,

Back To MAC

Hey Lovelies,
So it's been a while since I posted about MAC on here and I thought it's about time I change this by bringing you another Back To MAC post. If you've followed my blog for a while you will know that I am a bit of a MAC addict, and I quite frequently amass enough MAC empties to qualify for a free lipstick. So without further ado let's delve into my latest MAC empties and have a look at which lipstick I exchanged them for!
Back to MAC 6 Empties
I loved using this as a bronzer and it seemed to last me forever which is an added bonus. I'm actually going to buy MAC's Give Me Sun next (it's already in my online shopping basket!) and I am excited to see how that compares to the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium Deep.
A few years back I went through a phase where I would only use cream blushes and that's when I picked up MAC's Ladyblush. It's a lovely warm toned blush that looks very natural on the skin. I don't know why I've stopped wearing cream blushes. I don't even own any cream blushes at the moment. This is something that I need to address next time I go makeup shopping haha!
MAC Pro Sculpting Creams
Feel free to correct me if I am wrong however I believe these were limited edition and are currently not available on the MAC website so I won't ramble on about them too much.
We were given this lipstick as part of our kit when I did my make up course all the way back in 2012. MAC Cyber has a satin finish and it is a very dark purple colour. I'm more of a nude lipstick kind of girl but if you are into dark lipsticks that are insanely pigmented then check out MAC Cyber because it may well be right up your street!
I bought this a few years ago when it was THE lipstick everyone was going cray cray about because a certain Kim Kardashian apparently loves it. It's one of MAC's bestsellers and I feel every MAC lipstick lover should own MAC Angel at least once in their life! This lipstick is a blue toned light pink that's very wearable.
MAC Kinda Sexy Lipstick
The free lipstick which I decided to treat myself to is Kinda Sexy. According to the MAC website Kinda Sexy is a neutral pinky rose colour. It has a matte finish. I have worn Kinda Sexy a few times now and I just love how long wearing it is! It's another one of those 'your lips but better' kinda lipsticks and I would even go as saying it's my favourite MAC lipstick! It goes with just about any make up look and I am extremely pleased with myself for choosing this colour! Here's a swatch for your viewing pleasure:

I have actually had a make up clear out and I have my next 6 empties ready to take Back To MAC, so let me know what your favourite lipstick from the brand is so I can check it out before I decide which one to get!
I hope you've enjoyed this post and thank you for reading!
