Chicago Tribune reports that “a limited portfolio” of NARS Cosmetics is coming to Ulta. There’s no telling which products will be included but this could be a game changer if this is your favorite brand. Continue reading The Remix: @UltaBeauty or @Sephora? #BuryMeMondays

I Need It Now: @narsissist Velvet Lip Glide

I need you to understand that the sun kinda rises and falls with Francois Nars and Nars Cosmetics. Even if I don’t have it to spend I have to know what’s coming next.

I’m back with another #SwatchWednesdays post but this one is a bit of a bust. I snapped this swatch of Maybelline’s Pitch Black from their latest Bolds collection earlier this week but decided it needed to live here for all to see.
