NARS Disco Inferno Nail Lacquer

NARS Disco Inferno Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as an “iridescent silver green.” It’s a gray-tinged base with threads of silver shimmer. There is a very slight pink tinge when nails are angled, but it’s very subtle. MAC Ascension has finer shimmer and a stronger pink-purple duochrome. It looks a lot like Wet ‘n’ Wild Gray’s Anatomy, which seems to have more of a green tinge and finer shimmer.

NARS Cythere Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil

NARS Cythere Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil ($24.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “soft metallic rose.” It’s a beige-brown with a rainbow shimmer. I’m not sure where NARS is seeing rose, as it yields a very metallic champagne/beige/brown kind of color both swatched and applied. The shimmer reminded me a lot of the kind found in Illamasqua Opulent, but the color of Opulent isn’t like Cythere. MAC Straight to the Head has a lot more glitter. Lancome Amande is browner.

NARS Dressed to Kill Lipstick

NARS Dressed to Kill Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “fuchsia rose with gold shimmer.” It’s a subtly pink-tinged rosy-red with a dusting of gold sparkle. It’s just barely cool-toned; it almost reads neutral to neutral-warm against my warmer complexion. I suspect it will look a bit pinker against cooler complexions. shu uemura Rouge Luster is warmer. Giorgio Armani #406 is redder. Dior Nocturne is pinker, less red.

NARS Seduction Blush

NARS Seduction Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as “sangria.” It’s a deep, red wine with a very faint shimmer-sheen finish. Initially, the color in the pan reminded me a bit of NARS Outlaw, but the two aren’t the same; Outlaw is more berry-hued and has golden shimmer/sheen. NARS Dolce Vita is pinker, not quite as dark. MAC Hidden Treasure is more orange, less wine/berry. MAC Stratus is warmer, a little browner in comparison. NARS G-Spot is lighter, more muted. It’s also similar to NARS Grenadine, which is an eyeshadow, though the eyeshadow is redder.
