FACE: Minty goodness - Nars Habanera Duo Eyeshadow

Hihihi!

Oh em geeee, Manchester, what is with this wind? I felt like Mary Poppins this afternoon battling with the wind to stay grounded. I did manage to make it home in one piece: Halima 1 Wind 0. Pwahaha!

ANYWAY, the minty obsession continues...

I wasn't really feeling content with my mint shirts, sheer blouses & nail polishes, so I've only gone and got me some mint eyeshadow too! Some people might say I'm mint crazy, and I'd probably have to agree!

I usually stick to my neutrals & smokey shadows, but I think it's time for me to step out of my comfort zone.

I actually purchased NARS Duo Habanera e/s with my ASOS groupon voucher about a month or 2 ago. SO glad ASOS stock NARS :D

The mint shade is a gorgeous mint sheen whereas the perfectly contrasting purple shade has beautiful microscopic, kaleidoscopic glitter particles. The only downside is the fallout. I mean, I put the eyeshadow on my eyes but after an hour, I've got glitter all over my face! Not cool.

The eyeshadows were having a deep conversation about the meaning of life...

What is also not cool is my cat walking all over my laptop's keyboard and sitting on it while I'm trying to type! Argh!

What is cool though, is how photogenic the Habanera Duo is. It photographs well in shade, sunlight, indoors, at night, up close and far out without losing any of it's glamourous colour!

Minty Goodness...


EYES:
NARS Duo e/s Habanera
MAC Naked Lunch
Maybelline Gel Liner
Maybelline Black Drama Falsies mascara


The Maybelline Gel Liner is actually pretty decent, it's creamy and pigmented. But in my case, if you do big flicks, the liner goes for a wander around the eyes, panda eyes? No thankyou! I've just recently bought Clinique's Cream Liner which is basically a gel liner which has really impressed me. May do a review on this soon!

LIPS:
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Red Square

Could you see the fall out around my cheeks? Not good! However, it is a truly gorgeous shade. Shame about the glittery cheeks, GAH!

And yes, the bright lips is still going strong for me. NARS Red Square is a stunning orange based lipstick with a hint of red, I'd say this is definitely in between MAC's SO Chaud and Lady Danger. It is super pigmented making the colour appear opaque which is definitely a plus for me. And I just love how it just glides onto the lips and leaves a matte finish which isn't drying at all, yay! Can't actually remember the last time I wore nude lips.. I look at my nudes and feel nothing for them whatsoevar. :)

Have you tried Habanera? Stepped out of your comfort zone lately?
