My HQHair order arrived today. I've heard alot of people having problems with them, but My order took just under a week to arrive (including bank holiday and volcanic ash disturbances!)
So when I got an email saying there was a 15% off coupon for the bank holiday weekend I had to take advantage. I'd wanted some Nars stuff and some Bare Essentials.
First off the Nars stuff, I got Sheer glow, in Deauville. I've heard this is a good match for NW20. I'm excited to try this as I'm sure you've heard the good reports all over the blogosphere!
UPDATE: I tried it today and it's amazing! I know I can't rave after just one application.. but seriously, you need the tinyest amount, applys beautifully (with a Sigma 109) and leaves a really nice finish that didn't require much concealer, I'd say medium coverage but feels light on the skin.. With my order I got a loyalty coupon for 15% off my next order and I think I'll definitly be buying a back up of this along with a couple more blushes and possibly laguna. Any other reccommendations??
I then got two blushes, one cream, one powder. Penny lane and then Amour.
Top to Bottom: Penny Lane, Amour
Penny Lane is a pretty light pink cream blush, Amour is a beautiful Coral/Pink Matte colour, It's matte but with a sheen, no shimmer in sight. It's incredibly pigmented and smooth, and I'm sure it won't be my last Nars Blush. Although I'd heard Deep Throat was a lovely blush, I have Coralista, and some others that look similar so I wanted to try others before it.
Then the Bare Essentials kit. I'd tried a tester of it and really enjoyed it's effect. You can buy this kit in Ireland for €65 but i'd seen it online for around £45 which is obviously way cheaper, so when I could get 15% I was sold!
I got the light kit which inclused, one fairly light foundation, one light foundation, mineral veil, Warmth bronzer, Bisque concealer, Two face brushes and one concealer brush.
