Bronzer fun time

I figured I would post something about looking tan and healthy and not pasty white today since it’s a mere 5 degrees out there now. Good times!

As with most of the things I post about, I’ve tried LOTS of bronzers over the years. Bare Minerals, Body Shop, MAC, Clinique…the list goes on. The one bronzer that I can really stand by is NARS Highlighting/Bronzer Blush Duo.

The duo includes “Orgasm”  blush, which is peachy/ pink and semi sheer. The Laguna bronzer is my  favorite part though. It really gives you a natural looking all over color versus very severe effects where your face looks a totally different color than your neck.

This duo does last a while. Sometimes I just use the bronzer, sometimes I dust my brush over both and just do a little sweep. When I do really combine them I use the bronzer on the typical highlight areas (cheek bones, chin, nose, forehead, under neck) and then use a blush brush to throw a little Orgasm on the apples of my cheeks.

 I am telling you, its HOT STUFF.  Many other girls find this as amazing as I do – in fact, its got about 700 5-star ratings on It’s universally flattering!

To kick it up a notch for evening / special occasion I put a little luminating cream at the top of my cheekbones before I throw on my NARS. I also dab it in the inner corners of my eyes and along my brow bone. This gives that oh-so-desireable dewy look.  My fave for this is MODELco’s Luminosity. This stuff lasts forever and it makes you glow like a Go Gorgeous gal should!

I pick these up at my favorite local product haunt – Rouge Cosmetics. BUT I realize y’all are coming from lots of  different locales, so I’ve posted links below to where you can snag these at Sephora.

Have fun with it!


An opportunity to try Benefit on the cheap!

Hey ladies (and gents). Today is dragging and I was sort of at a loss as to what I would post about…that is until I made my daily Sephora visit and saw that they are running a fun, limited time offer!

They are selling a little Benefit sampler for $10. Frequent readers know that I have a special place in my heart for Benefit. I know I’ve turned a lot of people onto “That Gal” primer (check my INAUGURAL post on it!). This is a great opportunity to trial a few things and see what you like. I am sure they’ve got this in store too if you don’t want to order online.  The sampler includes That Gal primer, Posietint (lip & cheek stain), Some Kind of Gorgeous (faux foundation) and High Beam highlighter. It’s definitely a good value, and its a great low risk way to find products you like. Plus if you order online you get three additional free samples. What’s not to love?
