Product Battles: NARS Blush vs. NYX Blush!

NARS Orgasm is one of the company’s best selling blush. So successful that NARS created a line based off of Orgasm. Blush should be applied to the apples of the cheeks with either an angled brush or a thick powder brush. Soon after Orgasm, NYX released Pinched which is nearly the same color, but a fraction of the price. This will find out which blush is worth the money. Let’s begin!

NYX Pinched is a gorgeous pink color with light flecks of shimmer. It is sold in a medium size container and costs $5.00. To get this color I didn’t have to apply much to my finger. The color is a light pink and the shimmer isn’t too noticeable on the skin. I went to my local drugstore to buy this product and was applied with an angled blush brush.

The NARS blush in Orgasm has shimmery pink tone. It is very similar, if not exactly the same to the NYX Pinched blush. This blush is $29.00 and a bit larger than the NYX blush. This casing comes with a mirror and is a compact case. NARS came out on my skin having more shimmer than the NYX. The blush also didn’t seem as pink, but if built-up would have a more pink color. To buy this product  you would have to drive to the mall or your local Sephora. I already had it so I didn’t have to drive there this time.

The winning product is… NYX Pinched! The color was more potent, not overwhelmed with shimmer, and beyond cheaper. Paying $29.00 for blush isn’t really worth it to me when there is a dupe for $5.00 that is even better. NYX Pinched can be purchased at your local drugstore and is well worth it!

Who Wore it Best: Kim K. Vs. Gwyneth Paltrow

Two celebs, one dress, and one winner. Who wore this Pucci two-piece dress best? These two stars could have more different fashion senses. Kim K. a beautiful curvy woman enjoys embracing her curves, while Gwyneth P. enjoys lovely elegant pieces. Kim wore the dress with a longer skirt and statement earrings. She kept the hair back which added more focus onto the dress than her hair, nice touch! Gwyneth had a more cropped top and wore heels with metallic toe’s to add a spice of shimmer under the long dress. The winner? Gwyneth Paltrow. Personally, I love when curvy women embrace their body’s, but Kim K. should have altered the skirt so it wasn’t so long. Maybe it is just the picture but it looks like she is stepping on the back! Gwyneth’s more cropped top shows her toned physique and the minimal jewelry correlates with wearing her hair down.

Most Wanted Fall Boots!

Fall is clearly my favorite season. Mainly because where I live it is hot 9 months out of the year and these few months of low humidity and cool breezes lightens anyone’s mood. Along with the changing temperatures shoe fashion has also changed. Sandals and flip-flops aren’t for everyone when the snow is 2 inches outside in some states. Thus, boots were invented and these fashion trends are sure to turn some heads. Let’s begin!

The sporty wedge boot is perfect for dressing up a casual look. These boots are so versatile, take a tip from these celeb moms sporting the booties. The subtle heel makes every day wear genius. Many sneaker brands now offer their styles with a slight wedge.

Real or fake leather knee-high boots are perfect for these upcoming cold months. Pairing them with stockings and a cute dress, or jeggings and printed leg warmers adds a fashionable taste to the outfit. These boots are casual enough for daily wear and can be paired for more dressy occasions.

For more coverage than the knee-high boots, thigh-highs are your best bets. These lengthy boots add a sexy feel even though you are wrapped in 5 layers of clothing. A mini skirt, printed tights, and thigh-high boots allow you to reuse last seasons skirts while still staying warm.

The open-toe boot may seem somewhat counterintuitive, but it’s actually the coolest transitional accessory you can own. Just make sure the cutouts are moderate and proportional to the rest of the boot. Having too many cut-outs pretty much makes the shoe useless. Pairing these boots with boyfriend jeans is so chic!

The final boot is the beloved combat boot. I own two pairs of combat boots, brown and black, and wear them all the time. These boots are so versatile and easy to slip over anything. Combat boots add a grunge feel to the look. Charlotte Russe is currently having a sale on their combat boots.
