NARS Fall 2009 Collection Product Information & Reviews

“For this collection, I wanted to create something fragile and strong, and seductive but not aggressive,” said François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics.

Fast Ride Lipstick ($24)
This lipstick may look really dark in the tube but goes on a sheer plummy wine color that is perfect for fall.

Tokaido Express Nail Lacquer ($16)
Ladies, purple nail polish is going to be HUGE this fall and this opulent blackened amethyst doused with ultra-fine gold dust particles is definitely going to be a hit!

Silk Road Duo Eyeshadow ($32)
This is a duo of icy pink with a warm rose gold with golden flecks. Very pretty and wearable.

Brumes Duo Eyeshadow ($32)
This is a duo of velvety matte charcoal with a sparkling, blue state.

Indian Summer Duo Eyeshadow ($32)
This is a duo of frosted champagne shimmer with deep matte mustard.

Mekong Single Eyeshadow ($22)
This intense, blackened espresso hue scattered with rose gold is definitely the winner in this collection. The color is to die for and it has a similar texture and pigmentation as NARS Galapagos and Strada eyeshadows. Loves!

How To Get Heather’s Look
Makeup artist Diane Kendal focused on giving Marks a look that was romantic and feminine with a distinct edge. Her already alabaster complexion was further evened out with NARS Firming Foundation, and cheeks were contoured and colored with a combination of NARS Cap Vert Multiple Bronzer and NARS Angelika Blush. Kendal then used an array of products to create a multidimensional eye – NARS Silk Road Duo Eyeshadow was swept across the entire lid up to the brow and under the eye; NARS Mekong Single Eyeshadow lined the lash line and was blended, along with NARS Night Fever Single Eyeshadow, into the crease; NARS Black Moon Eyeliner Pencil was drawn in a line along lower lashes; and the look was completed with multiple coats of NARS Black Orchid Mascara. Next, Kendal turned her focus to the lips, lining Marks’ pout with NARS Malta Lipliner Pencil before filling it in with NARS Fast Ride Lipstick. The final touch was two coats of NARS Tokaido Express Nail Polish on her nails.


  1. i love the silk road duo,mekong single e/s and the fast ride lipstick. :) i just got the Desire blush but after seeing the advert im lemming Angelika :(! Phyllis, have you tried Desire/Angelika? Do you know if they are similar?

  2. I’d totally bring home that Tokaido Express Nail Lacquer and the silk road duo Eyeshadow. I’m a sucker for jewel tone nails and the natural look.
