Melon Delight– and a Special Giveaway!

Nars Tasmania

I’m by no means a beauty guru, but if you want to know about a nudey/peach lipgloss, I can list my favorites with ease.  Though I love trying new ones, I tend to rotate back to old favorites (because I know what I like, and it’s pretty hard to improve on time-tested gems). So it is no small thing when I find a new lipgloss that knocks my old favorites off their pedestals.

And this great feat has been accomplished.  Nars has reformulated their lipglosses and added six new shades.  Among them is Tasmania, a melon-y pink.  I am in love.  I’ve already been back to the store to by more because I am so afraid it’ll sell out or go out of distribution or something.  (That’s a sure sign of love of a beauty product I think . . . when you start to panic about it becoming scarce.)

So, I made sure I have a few back-ups, and I bought one to share!  Because everything’s better when you share it, right?  Just leave a comment below telling me about something you’re excited about now (or for the summer). . . It could be a book, a vacation destination, a favorite lipgloss, a favorite anything, and you could win a special care package full of my new favorite things for the summer!!

So, com’mon, tell me, tell me!!

    I’m so excited. I seriously love a new lipgloss and have always been a Nars fan. It is funny I am in NO way a beauty expert I pretty much buy what you love. But a month or so ago I was in NYC and for the first time ever when the perfume lady tried to hand me a scent card I happily accepted (usually I rush by and try not to get noticed). Well this exchange was life changing. I found my all time new favorite scent and I wear it every day and every day it believe I am on some sandy beach! It is Tom Ford Neroli Portofino all over body spray. For anyone who wants to “go” on a lovely tropical vacation every morning…. Well I highly suggest purchasing this product!!!! It makes me so happy!!!

    • Sandra-
      I love how excited you are about that perfume! I wore it years ago, and you make me want to go smell it again! It can be so hard to find a fragrance that you love that it’s totally worth celebrating when you do!!

        What???!!!! So fun!!!! Can I also tell you about one more thing?! I was in NYC and got make up done. Trish has a new 24 he eye stick. Is is like a cream shadow you draw along bottom of top kid and smudge upwards. Literally looks like you were doing a professional eye. They have this awesome new emerald color which would look amazing with your eyes! Anyway. Was so excited. I am so bad at doing an eye and this product makes me look so experienced and first time I ever bought a color!!! Haha.
        Anyway SO excited I won something. Thank you! Thank you!! Xo

        • Ooh, that’s so cool! Thanks for the heads up. I don’t know what I’m doing with eye makeup, so this could be pretty exciting!

          You’re welcome! Goodies will be heading your way shortly.

    I’m excited about time – with my kids, when we are not rushed and running. Sure summer is filled with activities, but there is a laziness to summer that slows things down and gives permission to not stress as much. I’m excited about the opportunity to make the most of these moments and make some good memories.

    I’m also excited about little league baseball on a hot day – when you’ve been sweating for hours watching kid pitch ball, desperate to get home, but then your kid makes an unbelievable play and your jolted with excitement and pride…its the best.

    There will never again be a summer of 2014!

    Now we have another thing in common – I always buy several kinds of lip gloss at the duty free shops at Incheon airport – to share! My favorite is the lighter shade of pink (don’t know the name) from Shumera (is that right? I only remember the Shu part of the name). Makes my peep very happy.

    • Rob- I love that you buy her makeup and skin care products when you’re traveling!!

      I love what you wrote about time too. Time seems to be moving so fast these days, with little munchkins that are growing up. I’m trying to hold on to the moments, because I know I’ll look back on them so fondly when the kids are all grown up. Summer is the perfect time to slow down and really enjoy it.
