Let's get something straight right off the bat. I am not a fan of the Twilight Series. I'm OK if you are a fan. It doesn't bother me that you like sparkling Vampires. It's just that, I'm of an older generation where Vampires were evil beings that wanted to eat you. Like in the movie Lost Boys. That was MY Vampire standard growing up...not the best standard, but still. As I matured so did my Vampire preference. I abandoned Kiefer Sutherland and his fangs for Gary Oldman in the movie Dracula. When he wasn't all old and shriveled up he was freakin hot! Winona Ryder kinda ruined the movie because she's basically the same character in every movie she plays, but whatever; Gary Oldman = HOT! Then came Interview with the Vampire, a movie adapted from the series of books from Anne Rice. I had already read the book so when the movie came out, let's just say that I thought that Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt were not the best selections, but they still did a decent job with the movie...except for Louis who was a big whiny baby...then later, Queen Of The Damned with Stuart Townsend as Lestat was decent enough too. Of course no one is going to replace Bela Lugosi. He is the ULTIMATE Vampire. If you don't favor watching the ORIGINAL Dracula with Bela Lugosi I suggest you watch Ed Wood. Of course Mr. Lugosi isn't in it, but Martin Landau as Lugosi is EXCELLENT. In fact, this clip from the movie Ed Wood is so awesome I had to share it with you.
Now before you press play let me warn you that A) This is NOT SAFE FOR WORK and B) Those that do not like hearing curses/swear words/Dirty Language should refrain from watching this clip. You have been warned.
OK So what is the deal with all the vampire talk? Well it all has to do with the Sparkly Vampires that are oh so popular now. Vampires from twilight not only are able to go out in the daylight...which is totally lame BTW...but they sparkle when they do so. These Vampires are undead. They are here on this planet for ever...so why are some of them so obtuse? I know if I was immortal, the last thing I would do is go to freakin' HIGH SCHOOL! High school was a nightmare...not only is it full of wretched teenagers it's full of wretched teenagers that are full of angst and apathy and hormones. Noooo thank you. Never again. I still have nightmares about High School, where I forget my class schedule and end up flunking. Ugh. It's the worst! I'm getting off point. My point is: Sparkly Vampires are NOT SCARY!
Which brings me to today's subject. NARS Miss Liberty Highlighting Blush. If Sparkly Vampires are not scary, why are people so afraid of sparkling themselves? I have heard some murmuring that some people find that NARS Miss Liberty is TOO sparkly. To that I say. Karloff...Sidekick?...FU...Oh no. To that I say. WRONG!
Sure NARS Miss Liberty Highlighting Blush has sparkle, I'm not going to deny that. But it's not sooo sparkly that you look like a drag queen...(which, by the way, isn't such a bad thing to look like). This highlighting blush is really a peach colored illuminating powder. It gives your skin a light reflecting glow. The transparent pigments in the blush avoid a heavy look to the face so that you can wear it alone or on top of another blush without it looking caked on. The color is neutral enough that pretty much any skin tone can wear this. The luminous glow you get from wearing Miss Liberty is just the thing to give a beautiful look to the cheek and add dimension to your face. You want to glow don't you? Sure you do. Everyone does. NARS Miss Liberty will get you that glowy look!
The so-called glitter in this product is so fine and so sheer it is hardly noticeable unless you are looking at your skin in a 10X magnifying mirror. Here's a tip. No one looks as closely at your skin as you do. No one will notice because they don't take a magnifying glass to your face when they talk with you. If anyone you know actually does this, I suggest you end the friendship ASAP...because that's just creepy.
This powder is soft and smooth and yes, it sparkles, but not so much that it would look garish in the office. Come on, fluorescent lights are not flattering, why not wear NARS Miss Liberty so that at least you look alive? AH HA! That's it. When things sparkle, they dance in the light. they LOOK ALIVE! That's my issue with sparkly vampires. Vampires are dead. Dead things do not sparkle.
Do you NEED this? I have worn this almost every day since I purchased it. I am in love. However, I am well aware that there are many "glitter adverse" people out there so I'm only going to say that YES if you don't mind some glitter. I don't want to hear from you all about how this is a "Glitter Bomb". Child, this is no glitter bomb. It's sparkly. Deal with it...The Vampires don't seem to mind.
This video is safe for work. It is by one of my favorite bands, Bauhaus. This song (and the band) is in my FAVORITE Vampire Movie of all time, The Hunger!
