NARS Valhalla Eyeshadow

NARS Valhalla Eyeshadow ($25.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft shimmering pink peach.” It’s a pop of golden peach with a frosted sheen. It doesn’t read very pink against my skin tone, but it might if you have stronger pink undertones (though even in the pan, it seems more peach thank pink). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #7 (P) is darker. Tarte Rose Champagne (LE) is similar. bareMinerals Ball Gown (V2) (P) is yellower. Make Up For Ever I520 Pinky Sand (P, $21.00) is similar. theBalm #7 (P, $6.50) is more beige. bareMinerals Ball Gown (LE) is similar. Too Faced Cheers! (LE, $16.00) is similar. Disney by Sephora Splendid (LE) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

NARS Liguria Sheer Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “nude caramel.” It’s a soft, pumpkin peach-orange with very fine yellowed peach shimmer.

NARS Spring 2015 Color Collection

NARS Spring 2015 Color Collection
NARS Spring 2015 Color Collection

The Spring 2015 Color Collection features Tilda Swinton in the second of four ‘Portraits by The Artist’, a seasonal series of acts created by NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars. Act 2, is a nude scene– daring, baring, anything but neutral.

Disrobed tones in spectral effects expose a new natural state. The look begins with a provocative pink shimmer on cheeks. The barely-there effect extends to eyes, where a bold beige base sets the stage for burnished neutrals with lucid depth. Lips are undone in tan pigments topped with a whisper of opalescent gloss.
