FOTD with NARS Paramaribo & Guerlain Coque d’Or (120) Rouge Automatique

Hey everybody,

How’s your weekend so far? The weather feels almost like spring here today, so we went out for a walk and sushi dinner. Since I wanted to test some stuff out, I thought I’d show you an FOTD!

I used NARS Paramaribo for my eyes, with the lighter shade on the inner half and darker on the outer. My inner corners were highlighted with the Browbone shade on the left column of Wet n’ Wild Comfort Zone. My upper lash line was lined with Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black, lower lash line with Urban Decay Bourbon and then smudged out with the darker shade of Paramaribo. I used Tarte Blissful on my cheeks, a bit of Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze, and some Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Soft Matte Bronzer to contour. For some reason, I thought the slightly “retro” Paramaribo would go well with Guerlain Coque d’Or, so that’s what ended up on my lips!

A couple more shots so you can see the eyes better:

I will swatch/review Paramaribo and Coque d’Or soon (expect them early next week), but I can tell you I’m getting a major kick out of both!

One last picture:

I finally managed to keep one post short and sweet! Thanks for reading, folks! For those of you who have stuck around, a big thank you and I will keep trying to keep you entertained 🙂 For those of you who just found this blog, please subscribe or leave a comment if you like what you see, and I promise there are only better things to come!

I hope you’re enjoying a fantastic weekend!

    • Hey Shannon, thanks so much for the nice comment 🙂 I’d be surprised if you couldn’t get this in Canada! As far as I know Sephora had this for their 100 point perk not so long ago! But really, try the formula. You’ll probably end up buying a couple of them!

  1. The gold really looks gorgeous on your eyes! I also really looove your lips, it flatters you in a very good way! What mascara did you used? Your lashes look really pretty and very defined there, love it!
    I’m not feeling well atm, so I was in bed the whole day *sobs*, I really hope I’ll be better tomorrow.
    And always nice to read a thank you note, I really love your blog, I think you have a great personality and you are very down to earth plus you have a great writing style! Keep on going!

    • Hey Teri, aww I’m sorry to hear you’re not feeling well 😦 I hope you’ll get better soon, and I hope the weather stays gorgeous so you can go out for a walk!

      Thanks for the compliment! I used the same mascara (Maybelline Magnum Volum’ Express). I think it looks different because I did two coats instead of three. I found that this way my eyelashes don’t clump as bad, but still there is still significant improvement in length and volume 🙂

  2. I love your blog, and the name is so cute! Nars Paramaribo has become like one of my favorite eyeshadows, I did my own review and swatches on the blog I just started!

    PS: you have the shiniest looking hair!

    • Hey Emily, thanks so much for dropping by and leaving a comment! I tried to check your blog out but the link doesn’t work! I’ll try to check back 🙂

      Thanks for complimenting on my hair! I’m working on a hair care post, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled! xx

    • Thanks Lily! I briefly toyed with the idea of wearing Mexican Rose, but I had been wearing it for 2 days in a row and having to scrub the life out of my lips again just to remove it seemed a little daunting… I will do an FOTD featuring it soon though, I promise!
