New In: NARS Fall 2013 Color Collection

Autumn has to be my favourite season. The Fashion. The cosy nights in. Oh, and a/w makeup collections. NARS are one of those brands that never fail to make me 'ooh!' over their new releases. I have a few items from their latest Fall Color Collection which have wet my appetite for plum lips and metallic eyes.

Their Pure Matte Lipsticks in La Paz* and Peloponnese* caught my eye the most, however they are not as matte as I would like. I'm not a great fan of shimmer on the lips and these lipsticks do have a glittery effect to them. La Paz, the plum purple shade, has to be my favourite of the two and suited my fair skin tone whilst also packing a punch for an autumnal evening look. I think I'll find it harder to wear Peloponnese, which is a bronze toned nude. NARS describe this shade as a 'ginger pink' with its copper like tone, I think this shade would suit darker skin tones especially.

As for the eyeshadows I was lucky enough to test out Bavaria* which is described as a 'Deep Sea Blue' yet I find it leans more to a teal green hue. This is the only shimmer shade in the fall eyeshadow collection, which works wonderfully as a highlight in the inner corner or sweeped over for a more metallic look. I would love to pair this with the shade Kamchatka, I think it would make a gorgeous navy smokey eye look, perfect for these colder nights.

What do you think of the NARS a/w collection? What would you pick up from it? Shop the collection here.

  1. I don't have anything from NARS, to be honest, the products aren't readily available where I live, simple as that, but I'll move temporary soon to a place with a Sephora, so I'm "investigating" (I call it research!), which brands and products are worth to check out. These look interesting! I'm not the biggest fan of shimmery makeup, but the vampy color is very pretty. Definitely gonna give it a look ;) Thanks for the post!

  2. I've only recently tried Nars and I must admit I love everything so far! So keen to try some eye shadows :)

    I'm not a huge fan of shimmer either, I can handle a tiny bit though.

  3. I love the look of the the La Paz lipstick, would be a perfect colour for A/W

  4. If La Paz didn't have shimmer, I'd be all over that.
