So I went to Holt and checked out the NARS display for Liv. The staff member told me that she only has samples so far and has yet to receive product~ I got to try it out first and she will call when it’s in!Also as a side, I totally snapped all these selfies while walking from the store (#1), walking down the block and near a park (#2 & #3). People definitely noticed. It was a little embarrassing but really. This lip colour is too fabulous. I needed photos ASAP!
I really want the Illuminator.
Also I got the really red colour of those lip pencils for xmas [my mom is a nerd and bought the same colour twice and gave me one..] and they are really awesome, which you probably could have guessed since all NARS products are awesome ^^
My “I’m sick and don’t want to do anything but I have to go pick up my remicade” look~
Basically all black except the new $6 white T-shirt I got from F21 yesterday and my lips (Fast Ride - NARS)

NARS on his new collection:
What’s unique about the collection?
“At first glance, all the pinks and shimmer can look very sweet and innocent, but actually there is a lot of bold and contrasting color—a gray-lavender eyeshadow, a navy blue Soft Touch Shadow Pencil, a hot pink lip color, for example—that make the collection edgier and more sophisticated than it may seem.”
oh I want it all!!!!
I would fucking die!!!! I want all of it!!!!!!!!!
I catch myself falling in love with certain shades all the time and then I realize that um, I have 7 versions of it, maybe in different finishes or whatever, but you know…. they’re the same product. Here’s a perfect example: NARS Semi-Matte Lipstick in Schiap ($24 @ Sephora), right next to one of my favorites of 2011, Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Crush ($19 @ Sephora).
If I were to really examine them, I’d say Schiap is a teeny, tiny bit darker. It’s also matte, but I usually wear a gloss over it because if I don’t it’ll settle into my lip lines and look strange — it’s not a generous formula, one of the driest I’ve ever tried and I was considering returning it. But mattes are usually dry, and I can’t not love the color. I prefer Crush more, it goes on very smoothly and is more hydrating, and lasts much, much longer. I don’t have to reapply it throughout the day, it fades much nicer. Schiap needs to be re-applied after a cup of tea. It just kind of disappears, no stain, just….. evaporates.
I personally prefer Crush. What about you? Do you have another dupe of this shade? Which do you prefer?
Now adding this NARS lippy on to the ever growing list of lippies I MUST have. damn.
So this Sunday I had a big date. With my friend Nizhoni LOL~ We had plans to get a big fucking waffle at butterfingers and watch twilight.
First I stopped at Galleria department store to get my lovely new lippy~ I got Tanganyka which is described as a sheer neutral plum brown. Which pretty much sums it up. It looks amazing. It’s sheer so the colour is buildable which is nice and it isn’t drying and even after the glossy top layer goes away there is still colour left on the lips.
It’s my first NARS lippy and so far I’m highly pleased.
Anyway so then I met up with Nizhoni and we checked out every fucking makeup store in Gangnam lol~ I was also sorely tempted by a buy one get one sale on Chuck Taylor’s at a shoe store. I could have had a baby yellow pair and all black or maybe all black leather plus the classic blacks. *sigh* I hope they still have it on when I get paid!!! I needed to save my money to mail out all my christmas gifts. My friends and family better love their gifts >.<
Then we ate some yummy Japanese food. She has family who lives in Japan so she’s spent a lot of time there and we both agreed that we love Japanese food ^^
Then we headed to the best comedy of the year: Twilight - Breaking Dawn part 1. I was laughing so hard the girl next to me shushed me. But really, fuck off, if I think it’s funny I paid to watch it and I’ll fucking laugh! I wasn’t really being loud while laughing, just gasping for air. Edward was rocking the makeup look I’ve had to adopt this past while: nothing on the eyes [actually he probably had some e/s to darken them and make them look sleep deprived] with ruddy cheeks and dark matte red lips [not brick red, more of a rust that seems a bit natural] LOL. fucking twilight. So awkward.
All in all Sunday was a really good time~ I usually have a good time when I hang out with her so it wasn’t really a surprise ^^
Tonight I had that staff dinner and actually it was pretty fun. We went to Vapiannos or whatever the hell that Italian restaurant chain is. The one where you get a sort of swipe card and they charge everything you order on the card and then you pay up front. You have to get everything yourself. Good thing you don’t need to tip!! It’s the second time I’ve been to it and as usual it was delicious and I over ate like a lot. Because those old Korean women wouldn’t let me stop :( I was pleasantly surprised that they really made an effort to include me in the conversation and it was a really good time. Aside from HT telling me that at school I always seem sad [cause I’m not doing fucking backflips through the hallways, just merely walking to my destination to go do my work…] but when I’m out I seem more happy. blah blah blah. How she assumes my mood to be is her own problem. I smile, I say hello to everyone a gazzillion times a day and I do my job. I’m not a fucking entertainer and if she wants that she’ll have to hire someone else. That’s all besides the point because it was nice. And HT’s friend, who normally [especially last semester] seems to hate me [I heard she’s been going through menopause and that’s why she was so bitchy last semester] was really nice and I even hugged her goodbye ^^
Okay so I guessss Monday’s aren’t so bad. :D
