NARS Fall 2010 Collection Reviews & Swatches

July 18, 2010

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 3 new Single Eyeshadows ($23) in this collection. Daphne, named after François Nars’ inimitable muse, Daphne Guinness, 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, lime green. I didn’t think much of it at first but once the NARS artist used it on me during my makeover, I was sold! It also has the best pigmentation out of the 3. Coconut Grove is a fool-proof dark brown color that is great for smoking out any look.

There are also 2 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!

Another one of my favorites, 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!

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 worked great as a base for powder eyeshadow.

In the lips department, we have Rouge Basque Lipstick ($24) and Strawberry Field Lip Gloss ($24). The former 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!

    Palladium looks gorgeous, it doesn’t take a rock scientist to ponder the quick sold-out. Does it crease easily?

    The blush is beautiful. Do you think it will work on darker skintones as well?

    The pencil wore very well. My eye makeup stayed intact for 10 hours straight but I also had the Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base on so I’m sure that helped too.

    Douceur is a really soft color so it may not show up on darker skin tones.

    It’s a pity palladium was already sold out ’cause it looks stunning!
