Review: NARS Fall 2011 Collection

NARS Fall 2011 collection




Soft and subtle with a touch fierce is what I see when I look at this collection. Weather it’s your eyes or your lips, you can choose one to be the drama of your fall look. This collection makes me want to be  more adventurous, go outside of the norm and choose something fresh this fall while I sip my seasonal pumpkin spice latte. Maybe I should switch that up to? Nah, some things are just too good to change.

Imagine yourself wearing these shades as we take a peak at this glamorous collection. Which ones are you?

Delphes Trio Eyeshadow



Sparkling sheer peach, matte dove grey, and frosted sage make up this long wearing and crease resistant trio. Each shade is true to color, and apply effortlessly with highly pigmented powders.

*Delphes Trio Eyeshadow $45.00


Grand Palais Duo Eyeshadow


While I don’t think Silver Taupe and Dusty Rose will look good on everyone, this duo would make some green eyes look killer.                                                                                                                                                                 * Grand Palais Duo Eyeshadow $33.00


Outremer Matte Eyeshadow


“Bright True Blue” is the description of this eyeshadow, and it is true to the name indeed! This shadow encapsulates the idea of stepping into Fall with a new sense of confidence.

Outremer Matte Eyeshadow $23.00


Oasis Lip Gloss


I already can tell my lips are going to be wearing this sparkling pink champagne gloss. It is infused with vitamin E and is non- sticky for those of you that don’t like your lips smacking together when you talk.

*Oasis Lip Gloss $24.00


Pago Pago Sheer Lipstick


I think I have a lot of shades in my personal makeup bag that are pretty close to the Pago Pago, “shimmering pink,” sheer lipstick. So, I most likely won’t purchase this. However, if you are on the prowl for a good nude this fall, NARS sheer lipstick won the “best overall lipstick” in 2010 and 2011 for the InStyle “Best Beauty Buys” awards. So you know this won’t be a mistake.

*Pago Pago Sheer Lipstick $24.00


Mascate Pure Matte Lipstick


I can see it now, a barely lit room, a sexy black vintage dress, and red, decadent lips.  I feel mysterious just thinking about it this bold red lip color.

Mascate Pure Matte Lipstick $25.00


Montego Bay Pure Matte Lipstick


If only I could live in Montego Bay and wear this beautiful, rose pink lipstick! Here in Oregon where the weather is dreary (nearly) all year round, I don’t think of Jamaica as being “fall like.” But even so, they have a fall season as well, it just comes with a lot more sunshine and warmth.

Montego Bay Pure Matte Lipstick $25.00


Overall Thoughts


For this entire 7 piece NARS collection, it is $199.00. No I will not purchase everything in this set, but there are a few things like the Mascate that I love. I always recommend NARS because they have such high quality pigments that are worth every penny. I have been obsessed with NARS for 10 years, that speaks volumes. And no my momma didn’t recommend it to me! I fell in love because it rocks, not because it’s all know.
