I know you ladies are all really excited about the new NARS Fall 2010 collection, so here are the swatches and reviews as promised!
NARS Fall 2010 Collection
There are three new Single Eyeshadows ($23) in this collection. Daphne is a matte rich violet. It looks very pretty in the pan but the texture is a little hard to blend. Mangrove is a shimmery yellow color with green undertones. I didn’t think much of it at first but after the ma used it on me during my makeover, I was sold! It also has the best pigmentation out of the three. Coconut Grove is a fool-proof dark brown color that is great to smoke out any look.

There are also two new Duo Eyeshadows ($32), both of which are so pretty! Tzarine is a shimmery white beige paired with a gorgeous steel grey with glitter – perfect for every day use. Rajasthan is a more unique duo of metallic taupe with a dark gray with blue undertones. Both duos have amazing pigmentation and a smooth texture that blends very easily. Thumbs up for them both!

The Palladium Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($24) is a beautiful bright turquoise with silver glitter. Like all Soft Touch Eyeshadows, it has a creamy texture that glides on easily. It also works great as a base for powder eyeshadow.

Another one of my favorite, the Douceur Blush ($26) is a new, muted pinkish brown color that will look great on light to medium skin tones. Love its fine and smooth texture.

In the lips department, we have Rouge Basque Lipstick ($24) and Strawberry Field Lip Gloss ($24). The former (pictured below) is a blood red color whereas the latter is a strawberry stained color.

Overall, this is a really gorgeous collection. The colors may seem bold but the texture makes them very wearable. I haven’t liked a NARS collection this much in a while!
