Falaises

NARS Falaises Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer ($40.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer, buildable coverage where three or four layers built up to mostly opaque coverage. The consistency was rather firm in the pan, so while it felt smooth swirling a fingertip against it, getting product onto a brush took more pressure and a denser brush. The powder itself was nicely blendable on the skin, and the finish was exactly in line with the brand’s promise–natural-looking bronzer that wasn’t “flat matte” but not shimmery either. The bronzer wore well for eight hours before fading on me.

The new formula is supposed to have a “matte finish” with a “sheer pigments” that look like “second-skin warmth.” There are four shades, and going from light to dark (per the brand), they are: Seaside, Laguna, Casino, and Falaises. The formula felt smoother and firmer compared to the brand’s Dual-Intensity formula (which has a similar pattern on it). The formula had sheer to medium coverage with some shades being more buildable than others. I had to use a denser brush and heavier hand to ensure product transferred onto my brush, so they would be hard to overdo.

Seaside

NARS Seaside Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer ($40.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, reddish undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was firm and dense in the pan, and I was worried it would be difficult to blend, but it was rather easy to diffuse and even out on the cheeks. I’d recommend using a denser brush with the powder, though, for even semi-sheer application. The powder had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to medium coverage. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading.

NARS Loaded Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.48 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette that features twelve eyeshadows in varying shades of warmer neutral tones. The palette will launch March 22nd at NARS and March 28th at other retailers. Some shades were nice, some shades were less impressive, but the majority of them would benefit greatly from an eyeshadow primer–both for longer wear as well as greater color payoff.

Bait

NARS Bait Velvet Lip Glide ($26.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that went on fairly evenly. There were very slight “lines” that were visible if my lips pressed together as well as from when I moved the applicator along the edges of my lips. The consistency was smooth, gel-like but not too dense, and comfortable to wear. It lasted for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

The Velvet Lip Glide formula is supposed to have high coverage without being “drying or feeling sticky” while applying like a gloss but looks like a lipstick. They have stronger color payoff, a non-tacky consistency, and a smoothness to their consistency that is a lot like a good lipstick, while they have a plusher, thicker texture that gives lips a plumper, fuller look along with a glossy sheen that is more like a gloss. They develop a more “velvety” finish, which is code for “less shine” after two to three hours, and at that point, they tend to look more like a natural finish lipstick than a gloss. I would classify the formula more as a pigmented gloss than a glossy lipstick, if I had to put it firmly in one box. The formula has a vanilla scent but had no discernible taste to me.

Cruella

NARS Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is dark red with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to the lips. The texture was thin, velvety, and smooth enough to glide on without tugging on the lips but still appear flat and matte. This shade wore well for six hours, was somewhat drying, and left a stain behind.

The formula is supposed to be “long-lasting” with “rich” and “seamless color.” The texture has a more velvety feel: smooth, thinner but glides on easily, and doesn’t have a lot of wetness/creaminess. The pigmentation varied from shade to shade with most shades having semi-opaque coverage. They were easy to apply along the lips and comfortable to apply, as they did not tug. The formula lasted anywhere from three hours to six hours, and some shades were somewhat drying and others were non-drying.
