Since moving to Las Vegas in April I have SO enjoyed connecting with other bloggers and getting to attend some really fun events! Last Friday I got a night out at Caesars Palace for the 4-year anniversary of NARS Cosmetics at the Forum Shops.
Christie Moeller (fashion stylist/blogger extraordinaire) hosted this event with NARS and as per usual, it was fabulous. DJ Miss Joy brought her fun personality and music, there were delicious cocktails and cake pops, the NARS makeup artists were doing little makeovers and demo-ing products on us, and BombHair was there doing braids.
My first stop was of course to grab a cocktail. The stunning Natasha was mixing up delicious drinks with a smile.
Then I perused the makeup. I had actually never tried NARS makeup before and had asked over on Facebook what I needed to check out and the resounding consensus was anything in the orgasm color – especially the blush and lipgloss. I sat down with NARS makeup artist, Andy Lauger, to try some stuff out and he gave me an awesome little lesson, answered my million questions, and chiseled some cheekbones onto my face.
I was nervous about orgasm blush because I thought it would be too shimmery, and since I LOVE shimmery eyeshadow I didn’t know if a shimmery blush would be too much. I am happy to report that it’s a really subtle shimmer and such a gorgeous peach-pink color, not over the top. I bought two! One for me, and one to give away (read to the end to enter the giveaway!).
NARS just debuted this new Climax Mascara last month and I was really impressed by it! And such a great price point ($24) for a high-end mascara. It’s a very buildable mascara that won’t clump and the brush rocks.
I had no intention of buying a palette that night but I was almost instantly sold on this bad boy. It’s the Atomic Blonde eye & face palette and WOW. The bronzer can do double duty as bronzer, contour and crease color, the highlight is gorgeous, and the four eyeshadow colors are so pretty and gorgeous shimmers the way I like ’em. 🙂 Perfect for the woman on the go! This one palette replaces 3-5 other things I would normally pack in my makeup bag when going on a trip.
I was feeling FIERCE after the makeup and braids! I was super glad I had washed my hair that day, I wanted to (and did) keep those braids for more than that night! And let’s talk about those cheekbones. That would be Andy’s wizardry using the bronzer from the Atomic Blonde palette plus this brush (aptly named the sculptor) that I also had to buy! (also, can we give the Rosario Necklace a round of applause! I had so many people compliment me on it and ask to touch it!)
Here’s some more photos of the fun (stay to the end for the giveaway!).
