Overall Thoughts:
As much as I like the Black Opal powder, I noticed it didn’t last throughout the day. I often found myself, reapplying it after lunch. After finishing my Black Opal loose powder, I decided to try a new product. I headed to Sephora, where I purchased my very first Bobbi Brown product. I picked up the Sheer Finish Loose Powder and I’m happy I did! If you have oily skin like me, then this product will work wonders for you. It’s lightweight, absorbs oil, and leaves my face with little to no oil or shine (after 9 hours). During workdays, I prefer concealer and powder for a natural look. This powder sets my concealer in place, and gives me a flawless finish. Bobbi Brown offers a total of 10 shades, including the newer shades: Golden Brown, and Warm Chestnut. I’m excited for my next Bobbi Brown purchase 😉

Any recommendations for my next Bobbi Brown purchase?

Crop Tops #3

Crop tops are must-haves for the summer. I love the versatility of these tops: You can pair them with  skirts, jeans, and high-waisted pants. So far, I own a black and white crop top. It seems I may be adding a few more of these trendy pieces to my collection. Will you?

The sun can be unpleasantly cruel during Summer, but with proper attire and friends, it can be the least of your worries. So if your looking for some suggestions/inspirations to wear to a outdoor concert, block party, jazz festival, and other fun-in-sun festivities, I hope these looks can help 😉

Which look is your favorite?

When it comes to running errands, I like to be comfortable as possible. I normally go for wedges on days that don’t consist of a lot of running around. On hectic days, I opt for sneakers or flats. My ensembles are comfortable, yet casual chic for running errands. Which look is your favorite?

Pros
Glides on smoothly
Long-wearing

Cons
Not enough product; I finished my first concealer within 2 months

Overall Thoughts:
Nars states, Brilliantly obscures imperfections and dark spots with a creamy, vitamin-rich formula that nourishes the skin for all-day wear. Crease-proof and easily blendable for a flawless finish”. This concealer does everything mentioned in the statement. I initially purchased the shade Amande, but after achieving an amazing flawless finish, I decided to make my way back to Sephora to purchase 2 more shades: highlightcolor (Caramel), and a contour color (Cacao). I love using all 3 shades, and setting my face with my Nars powder for a completed look. These concealers are a definite staple!
