NARS Holiday 2010 collection is shaping up to be one of my favorite NARS launches this year. I’ve been especially smitten with two items: Sex Appeal Blush and Melusine Duo Eyeshadow.
Sex Appeal Blush, as you can see, is a light pinky-peach matte. It’s got some chalkiness to it, but on my cheeks it glows.
Melusine is just perfection. The silvery pewter shade is so creamy and glamorous — and incredibly easy to wear. It works beautifully alone with other colors or even just some black eyeliner (winged out adds a nice touch!), but it is a perfect mate for the matte purple shadow it shares a case with. NARS purple eyeshadow duos are actually becoming a holiday beauty tradition for me of sorts. Last year, Eurydice wowed me and prior to that it was Jolie Poupee. I’m happy to keep this tradition going!
Also, my swatch of Sex Appeal is actually pretty invisible on my hand — appearing lighter than my skin. I don’t know how to explain the transformation, but on my cheeks, over foundation or a cream highlighter, it is peachy pink perfection. I think that lighter skin tones are the ones that can pull it off, so if you fit that category it’s worth checking out.
Anyone else pick up any NARS holiday items? Let us know!
