FOTD & NOTD- Nars Paramaribo and Madly, Maxfactor Fantasty fire

Hello! I did a spot of shopping the other day and treated myself to a couple of items from Nars. I only have one Nars eyeshadow duo which I love (but it is not the most wearable of duos) so I knew I would love whichever one I picked out, and I also wanted to buy my first Nars blush.
With the eyeshadow duo I was thinking for summer and went for Paramaribo from the new collection, which is made up of two gorgeous gold toned khaki greens, one darker than the other meaning I could use the duo to create a khaki smokey eye. I also went for this duo because I know these are the kind of shades that suit my colouring and greeny/hazel eyes.
As for the blush, when I was browsing the Nars blushes I was struck by how bold alot of them are, and that wasn't really what I was going for. Origionally I was looking at Luster but after the lady tried it on me with a REALLY heavy hand, I was put off and settled on the more muted Madly. I am SO glad I went for a sensible shade because now I have used it a couple of times I am in love! Because of my super-pale complexion this blush almost acts as a sculpting bronzey-blush and is really flattering.
So without further a-do here is a little collaged picture of said Nars products and my FOTD:
Products used:
Face: Bourjois healthy mix serum foundation-light vanilla (loving this foundation at the moment!), Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer- 1 fair, Nars Madly blush.
Eyes: Mac brow pencil- spiked, Bobbi brown corrector- porcelain bisque, Collection 2000 concealer, Too faced shadow insurance, Wet n wild walking on eggshells trio (highlight shade), Nars Paramaribo e/s duo, Mac pearglide eyeliner- Lord it up, Covergirl lash blast mascara- brown.
Lips: Estee Lauder lipstick- Crystal baby.
And now for the nails!
This is Maxfactor nail varnish in Fantasy Fire.
Ok so this nail varnish is really sheer and took a whopping 5 coats to build up to the colour in the picture, but I actually don't mind that. Considering the amazing effect the nail varnish gives and the drugstore pricetag, I don't mind putting in a little more effort for such pretty nails!
Thanks for reading!
