Remember when I said I was saving the Burberry Velvet Foundation for cooler weather? Well, the morning was so overcast and chilly… that I figure it’s Mother Nature’s way of telling me to use it right now! So I did.

Well… I was all set to pass on this… and then a little birdy named Shontay was like: DON’T YOU DARE! So I listened… and boy am I glad I did!
NARS collaborated with shoe designer Pierre Hardy for a series of nail polish duos, and two of the most amazing blushes… perfect for summer.
I ended up with both blushes, and the nail polish duo called ‘Easy Walking’:

Blushes in Rotunde & Boys Don’t Cry:
Nail Polish Duo in Easy Walking:
The blushes are… BEYOND. they’re twice the size of regular NARS blushes (they’re about the size of the bronze duos), and the gold pattern is just overspray. Underneath is the most matte pigmented blush… just stunning. They blend out beautifully (so that you don’t end up with two massive streaks of color on your face)… and can be layered for even more intensity. Amazing.
The nail polish duo is the most neutral of the selections. I like it because I can wear them separately or together, and they still make a statement.
