I Left my Heart in SF
During the summer, Francois Nars did a promotion at Nordstrom in San Francisco and put together a limited edition tribute to the city complete with repackaged and re-named vintage shades. I lived in San Francisco for a few years and loved the little city by the bay so much. The thought of combining my love for SF with my cosmetic obsession seemed only appropriate. And the value was amazing. For only $75, you get Golden Gate Bridge Blush, Alamo Nail Polish, Haight Ashbury Eyeshadow Duo, and Angel Island Single Eyeshadow, all enclosed in a sleek NARS black cosmetic pouch.
I had a chance to try a couple of the products already and so far so good. The Angel Island eyeshadow which is great for a sheer wash of color over the lid. The Alamo nail polish is a really pretty shade of coral, goes on so smooth although the lasting power has something to be desired. The Golden Gate Bridge Blush is more of a golden highlighter than a blush but is very pretty as well.
