>NARS Tainted Love + Random Depotting Project

>

Every year I end up making un-anticipated, unplanned spring purchases, mostly because some collections seem to be ALL OVER the blogging community and others are missed entirely (so I don’t put any extra effort into hunting them)! This was the case with the new NARS Tainted Love gift set (which I’ve seen on a few blogs since then – but only after I purchased it).

I’m happy though, because I love this set – it is SO pink!

The biggest reason I wanted this set – my first Multiple that I used! This is BEAUTIFUL, a bright pink with a bit of silver shimmer. I don’t own the powder blush, but this didn’t strike me as being sparkly at all.

I’m not a big lip gloss person any more, but the Angelika lipgloss (like the other products in the same shade) is a pretty pink with sparkle – decent pigmentation (I wore it alone in the FOTD) but usually I put this over a lipstick for extra shine 🙂

I love love love hot pink. This is a creme polish, which I haven’t tried yet due to work. But it looked nice when I swatched it!

The multiple blends really, really well, and I can definitely see why they are a favourite among many bloggers! I do however, wish the packaging wasn’t so prone to fingerprints and smudges – :S my multiple is already dingy looking despite my best efforts at not grabbing it with fingers covered by loose powder or eyeshadow!

On a random note, I depotted all of the Wet n Wild holiday palettes I had into my new UNII palette, which is LOVE. Only one shattered, which I consider a success (out of 18 different eyeshadows). I really want to order at least 2 more UNII palettes and finish depotting all my drugstore stuff – then I will have more drawer space for my high-end palettes with packaging too pretty to melt!

I forgot to take pictures, but I will try next time 🙂

  1. >THIS NARS SET IS SSOOOOOOOOOOOOO JUSTINE!! I saw it and immediately thought of you.You wear pink so well my dear.I need a unii palette. This is such an excellent idea. I can depot my WnW too.

  2. >Wow I really want Tainted Love now! It's so pretty! I've never tried NARS' lipgloss before, how's the formula? :)A Unii palette is on my wishlist, I need to depot my make-up and save some room in my make-up drawers hehe xx

  3. >this set is so youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu so pinkkkkkkkk :Ddo you like Angelika powder blush then? is there too much glitter? I own Copacabana multiple and i didn't like it really…it looks a bit greasy :/ but the swatches of angelika looks great!! note to self: MUST NOT CAVE IN!!!

  4. >i am loving that tainted love set!!!!!!cant wait to see it in person!!!hope it looks as good on me as it does u!i am undecided if i should get more uni palettes XD or just a large palette from coastal scents or zpalette just to depot stuff into and keep my uni palettes for travel only..decision decisions XD

  5. >@Old CowI was actually a bit indecisive about it but I am so glad I gave in – I love EVERYTHING about it. So pink! Hot pink! Thank you for your comment! It's a bit interesting to see how I was a year ago (all bright colours, no lippies), to how I am now (lots of golds and neutral, always bright lippies) <3I love my UNII palette and I want more! Visions of drawer space dance in my head…@Vanity-FashionistaI didn't find the lipgloss too sticky and the pigementation is decent… I'd much rather have an Angelika lipstick though! I'm too lazy to apply gloss on the go! It also didn't smell or taste like anything, really, which is good if you're sensitive to scents :)@JenniferHaha I think a lot of my friends saw this set and thought of me :PI don't actually own the powder Angelika blush (I found it really sparkly) so I was surprised to love the Multiple as much as I do! I had the Copacabana multiple a while ago but couldn't figure out how to use it, so gave it away!Be strong! Except the multiple only comes in this set right now and it's LE. Hopefully they'll make it permanent!@EvaI will probably wait until IMATS to get UNII palettes unless there are a new colour release (I really want an actual pink one XD)@YumekoHaha you will see it soon!! It is SO LOVELY. I think you'll really like it! I'm sure it will look fantastic (especially since you are much more used to multiples than I am)I need things to match so I'm stuck with Unii palettes, I think. I still want a pink one though – might stick with white and black for now (I will stock up during IMATS, I have tonnes of drugstore stuff that I'm willing to sacrifice the packaging of).
