I have been a religous NARS user since I was 16 when the only way I could get my hands on the products was via Space.NK mail order (I had to fill out the order form in the back of the catalogue and send a cheque, amazing how times have changed). My first ever purchase was Baby Doll lip lacquer and Orgasm blush (I guess you can tell I was majorly influenced by SATC).
Anyway, I have fallen in love with NARS all over again and it feels oh so beautiful.I have been waiting to get my hands on the multiple tints for ages. I chose Turks & Caicos (an exotic island I've always wanted to visit). It's a gorgeous sheer coral, amazing with or without a tan, perfect for holiday and I also realised today (yep, make up on the brain) that these tints are perfect for gym bunnies wanting to look naturally radiant.They are limited edition and are so worth investing in - go get yours before they're all sold out.

This gift set is perfect for holiday, I am so glad I've got this in time for Miami. This set contains all the products you need for your summer hols;
WATERMELON BODY SCRUB (with naturally derived exfoliating grains)
The Watermelon Body Scrub softens and prepares skin for a uniform tan. The combination of ground Bamboo and Jojoba beads effectively removes dead cells and improves microcirculation and restores and hydrates skin cells.
SWEET ORANGE SUNCARE FACE & BODY EMULSIONS SPF 25
Orange extract, (rich in flavonoids) accelerates skin tanning and reinforces melanin’s photo-protective role. Contains the natural filter Zinc oxide to provide broad-spectrum sun protection (UVA-UVB-IR). The organic extract of Active Aloe® supports the skin’s immune system and helps reduce the visible signs of ageing.
YOGHURT COOLING GEL
The ultra cooling and soothing cream-gel- (A KORRES classic). Yoghurt, a natural source of lactose, proteins, minerals and vitamins, increases the water content of the skin’s top layers instantly relieving UV-induced redness (correct name is erythema) and that uncomfortable burning sensation. (Also has ingredients which are anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant), helping the sun-harassed skin recover.
I LOVE the Athens bag, I'll definitely be re-using it, it's the best cosmetic bag and set I've seen compared to what other brands are doing.
One final holiday must-have (actually these are for life not just for holiday) - these Korres Pomegranate cleansing/make up removing wipes. They smell AMAZING! Baby wipes are so last decade, babies can keep them, us grown up gals have upgraded to Korres.
I love Korres.

ORLY has created a new breed of nail polish - the limited edition PLASTIX. The Plastix nail lacquers are made from an exclusive blend of raw materials and pigments to leave a perfectly smooth, glossy, matte finish. I'm in love with Retro Red and Purple Pleather.
These mean girls will be out in July.
