In celebration of Fashion’s Night Out 2012, NARS Cosmetics launched two great additions to its current 413 BLKR Collection.
The NARS 413 BLKR Duo Eyeshadow pairs two gorgeous colors that are great for Fall. On the left we have a soft mauve with low shimmer. It is a tad darker and more purple than NARS Lhasa. On the right is a black with red pearl. It is similar to MAC Beauty Marked and is a less intense version of NARS Night Fever. Both colors applied smoothly with decent pigmentation and blended easily. I also loved the versatility of this duo. The lighter shade is great for day but you can easily smoke it up for night by adding the color on the right.
413 BLKR Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, on the other hand, is a matte jumbo crayon lipstick in a beautiful blue-based fuchsia that will look great on any skin tone. It glided on easily with great color payoff and lasted about an hour or two. However, I have always found the Velvet Matte formula drying and this is no different. Make sure you exfoliate and moisturize in advance if you have dry lips or it will adhere to fine lines and flakes.
NARS Fashion’s Night Out 2012 413 BLKR Duo Eyeshadow and Velvet Matte Lip Pencil are available at narscosmetics.com for $34 and $24.
