No, I Just Ran Into The Door or The Nars 'Black Eye' Kit

narsblackeyeNordstrom is now carrying a Nars “Black Eye” Value Set for those of you that can’t stand the idea of resorting to domestic abuse or bar fights. It is an essential Nars kit to create a smoky eye. Yes folks, the smoky eye is still en vogue and I keep hoping for it to die, but it won’t. Yes, I still do the smoky eye so I understand why companies are still pushing it. But, I am ready for something else. Alot of my disdain had to do with working in the industry and… Continue reading | 1 Comment
