Boys Don't Cry

Rotonde


Here's a size comparison you can clearly see these are jumbo size blush. there is quiet a lot products in the Pierre hardy blushes.a regular Nars blush contains 0.16 oz and the one i used as a example is Nars Torrid blush (just in case you are wondering) . both of the blushes are super pigmented bright and bold colors, my fave is boys don't cry i love this color it's like a watermelon pinkish coralish color i don't know how to describe this color it's so pretty and perfect for summer. Rotonde is described as a tiger lily color, it's a deep orange color blush.both of the blush lasted about 6 to 7 hours on my oily skin. the gold shimmer pattern is an over spray so it will go away as you continue using this blush. like i mentioned before its very pigmented so you have to be careful with the  application . i did a heavy swatch and i also blended out to show you guys you can sheer these blushes out. you can use a stippling brush to apply the blushes for a light flush of color.


 
Heavy swatch

*Left Blended out lightly *Right applied a second layer and blended out 

The texture is very soft and easily blend able which is great since its really pigmented. i think both of the colors will work with both dark and light skin ladies. i did notice the gold shimmer added a little sheen which i actually loved i hope the shimmer pattern will last a little longer till the blush is left with a solid matte color. if i had to recommend one blush between these 2 i would say Boys don't cry its a unique color and not to mention how gorgeous it looks on my yellow/olive skin .


Nars Pierre Hardy Collection
*Vertebra (0.5 fl. oz)
Price -$ 29.00

I received this nail polish duo and it was broken and leaked all over the box so i had another one shipped right away and this one came in perfect shape. i also purchased one more nail polish duo from this collection but haven't received that one yet and i didn't want to delay anymore once i receive that nail polish i will do a separate post on it. this nail polish duo came in a shoe box along with is a drawstring dust bag .there is no name for the nail polishes its labeled as vertebra right ,vertebra left.vertebra left is described as a coral color nail polish and i think this nail polish looks like boys don't cry blush. which is why i probably love it so much, vertebra right is describes as a dusty rose color nail polish i like this color too. i love the price Nars permanent nail polish cost $19.00 and this nail polish duo is $29.00 so that's a pretty good deal. i didn't notice any chipping and i had it on for a week. the consistency is nice i didn't experience any streaking, the coral shade needed 2 coat, dusty rose shade is a little bit thicker than the coral one and needed only one coat.

Here's the swatch of the nail polish duo

Overall i really liked this collection. if you want to pick up something from this collection i suggest you do it soon cause fall collections are launching soon and some have launched already so the summer collection might be removed from the websites so get them before they are gone =)
