NARS Spring 2012 Collection

NARS - The Spring 2012 Collection is a study in contrasts: Bold color underscored by sophisticated shimmer. Eyes glisten in muted tones of lavender and pink, or shimmer in bronze shades accented with rich navy. Cheeks are flushed with candy pink. Lips gleam in topaz or pop with berry. Metallic violet nails add the finishing touch to a collection that’s bright, strong and iconic.


Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Dark Rite ($24 @ narscosmetics.com) – a navy blue – At first this one made a better liner than shadow as it creased and then started to disappear altogether within an hour of wearing it and that was with eye shadow primer. Not even going to swatch it, it was so not worth your time and would be misleading. Not sure how this one got past quality control.

NARS-Soft-Touch-Shadow-Pencil NARS-Soft-Touch-Shadow-Pencil-up-closejpgSingle Eyeshadow in Lhasa ($24 @ sephora.com) - a lavender-gray – on the other hand, this is such a nice shade reminiscent of the greige nail polish that was all the range. I kind of feel like they modeled this after one of those shades.
