Now, I don't want to get into an age old MAC vs. NARS debate (NARS FTW!) but I did want to express my undying love for NARS.
Both the oil free and balanced foundations are long lasting yet super easy to apply (no trowl required), the Laguna bronzer is one of the best on the market, and the Orgasm blush (in the cutest pink) is a dream.
I thought I would share with you the source of my NARS lovin'.
Go to http://www.kissandmakeupny.com/ (if you haven't already visited Fay's treasure trove!) The site is a New York based online store that stocks the likes of Khiel's, NARS, Frederic Fekkai and Mario Badescu. She carries almost the whole line of everything, and is pretty much a cheaper verison of 'Mecca'.
It is in US dollars, so always best to keep an eye on the ever changing dollar, but when our dollar is good, it is a real steal. Better still, she only charges a flat rate for International shipping, $7.95 -- what a star!
