TEST: Best NARS Orgasm Dupe!!

So today my Sleek MakeUp Blush in Rose Gold arrived and it got me thinking. I have so many blushes that have been said to be dupes for the famous NARS Orgasm. I also have NARS Orgasm (in my Danmari Palette) so I figured I would put them all to the test and see who comes out the winner.

Dupe Test:

*ELF Contouring Blush & Bronzing Duo: Now when I first heard about this product it was on Youtube and everyone was raving about how it was a great dupe for NARS Orgasm. Which at the time I did not own. So I of course picked it up. I did compare it once I got Orgasm. But during my dupe test today it is clearly the least like NARS Orgasm out of the bunch. It is cooler pink toned compared to Orgasm and is not very pigmented. So this guy took last place in the dupe test!

*The Balm Hot Mama!: Now this blush is almost there in the color spectrum but is lacking in the finish department. If you have or have seen a swatch of Orgasm you will notice shimmer with a slight glitter to it. Hot Mama lacks that aspect for only that reason it is now a 3rd place finisher.

*Sleek MakeUp Rose Gold Blush: Okay now the only reasong this gorgeous blush took 2nd place is because it is...TO PIGMENTED! Yup! If you guys own Orgasm you know it take two passes to transfer the perfect color. Sleek's Rose Gold blush is so pigmented you have to be careful with it. Because then it can be a stronger version of NARS Orgasm. But still a gorgeous and in my mind great dupe if applied right=D

*Too Faced Who's Your Poppy? Blush: WINNER! Now in choosing the winner I was looking for the closest finish and pigmentation. The other blushes were either too pigmented or not pigmented enough or were off by a shade or finish aspect. But not Too Faced Who's Your Poppy? Blush it is the closest thing I have seen to an exact dupe. Now price wise this is cheaper then NARS Orgasm. It retails for $19.00 where as NARS Orgasm retails for $28.00. So there is quite a bit of savings just between the two. They look exactly alike so say your cut off point for blush is $20.00 you have a great option in Too Faced Who's Your Poppy Blush!!

I do still love Sleek Rose Gold & Hot Mama! I really think if you guys can get your hands on them they are worth having. The Elf Palette I never pick up but in my opinion it is nothing like NARS Orgasm. Just remember these are the items I own that I think best had a chance of being the closest to NARS Orgasm.

So there you have it the WINNER: Too Faced Who's Your Poppy Blush next time you guys are in a retailer that carries both like Sephora swatch them side by side! Great dupe!

March Favorites!

So this month I have a lot of favorites! I picked up quite a few wonderful items that I have been loving. Some are repeats from last month and some are new. But, I just couldn't narrow it down any smaller. I literally used everything and had to rotate just because I couldn't stop using all of these products this month!

*March Faves!*


*Laura Mercier Face Primer- This is a great primer! I love my MUFE primer, but this is a great everyday primer.

*Maybelline Lumi Pen- I love this for my under eye circles. It covers and highlights just enough.

*CHANEL Vitalumiere Aqua in B20-PERFECTION enough said! Lol I have raved about this every day since I purchased it!

*Sleek Contour Palette- I love this for both the contour and highlight shades.

*Laura Geller Balance N Brighten- I love this it is my favorite setting powder. It just adds a bit more coverage to every foundation, TM or BB Cream I wear. I just love it!


*Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Flax- I love the finish of this primer one of my faves!

*MAC Paint Pot in Painterly- I go through painterly so fast I already had a huge dent in the center!
LOL A must have paint pot.

*MAC Paint Pot in Ground Work- I love using this on days when I just want subtle wash of color or I just want the minimalist make up look.

*Too Faced Naked Eye Palette- I really love how the colors in this palette go together. Like A Virgin is my favorite shade in the palette!

*Too Faced Sweet Dreams Eye Shadow Collection- Again more neutral shades that I love!

*MAC Eye Shadows in-

2.Corduroy (Matte)- My most used crease shades at the moment.

*Sleek Make Up Blush in:
1. Life's A Peach
These blushes are amazing. The finish and pigmentation are just so gorgeous!

*MAC BritWit CremeBlend Blush- This is such a gorgeous everyday cream blush & this month has been the only creme blush I have used.

*MAC Blush Baby Sheer Tone Blush- It is a close shade to BritWit. So I love this for when I don't want the dewy glow a creme blush leaves.

*NARS Bronzer in Laguna- With the warmer weather coming in I have worn this a few times instead of blush this month! Still so gorgeous & my favorite Summer time bronzer & or blush!


*MAC CremeSheen Lipstick in Modesty- I just love this lipstick it goes so great with every look I create!

Hair, Nails, Brushes, & Fragrance:

*Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque- This is my HG hair masque! It leaves my hair so shiny & soft!!

*MAC 210-My favorite must have liner brush!!

*Sigma E65-I love the shape of this brush for my applying my eyebrow products.

*MAC 217- I renewed my love for my 217 this month.

*Revlon Color Stay Nail Polish in Spanish Moss- I have worn this shade a few times this month and just love it!

*Borghese Nail Lacquer in Arrivederci Mist- Just a great shade for days when I don't know what shade I want to wear. I also love the shape of this brush!

*Models Own Polish in Lemon Meringue- My favorite Yellow. Not to bright but not to soft. I just love it!

*Loreal Polish in Tangerine Crush- I hauled this a while ago but never posted it. I have worn this also a few times this month. I have been on a peachy/coral phase and it is safe to say I am no where near the end of it! Lol

*Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy- Again one of my favorite scents by Britney Spears.

*Bath & Body Works Paris Amour Fine Fragrance Mist- I can not get over how the new formulations smell. They are so much better then the regular body sprays from before. Less Alcohol and more fragrance oil. I love!

*Bath & Body Works Night Time Tea Lotion- I love this scent so much I am rationing out how much I use this. I am now out of my body wash, candles and one more lotion! This is a holiday scent so I will have to wait until Christmas time to stock up! Easily my favorite lotion from B&BWs!! I use this alone and I always get told I smell good! I am going to be bummed when it is all gone!

I know this month I had so many favorites. But like I said I picked up a lot since last month. These are all such amazing products I hope you guys check them out soon!

Wet N Wild Limited Edition Flora & Fauna Spotted! & haul!

So yesterday I went shopping and to dinner with my hunny and of course I stopped by my favorite CVS just to see if I could find anything new that I must have! Boy was I shocked to see the New Limited Edition Wet N Wild Flora & Fauna Collection. I am a avid NouveauCheap reader but lately my blog has been acting weird so I have not been on very much. =/ So when I saw these I instantly tweeted her asking if she had seen them. Of course she had so I was so happy I found this completely on accident!!!! Believe me today I caught up on my blog reading on her page! LOL


Out of the two new sets the one that really called my name was FAUNA! So pretty and more wearable in my opinion out of the two. Included in the set was:

  • Fauna Eyeshadow Trio- So gorgeous. After swatching it my favorite shades for sure are the crease and brow bone color!
  • Pearlescent Pink Blush-Very pretty everyday pink with gold shimmer.
  • Glass Confusion Lip Gel- Love this! It is a light wearble pink and not sticky at all.
  • Teal or No Teal Fast Dry Nail Color- I have wanted this nail color but never picked it up. So I am really glad it is included in the set!
I got this all for $4.99 & since I had 5 ECB's from CVS I really only had to pay taxs on this item!!!

I am so glad I found the set even if by accident! =DD
