    Little Darling and the duo eyeshadow look interesting.

  2. Yumi

    A blush named “Sex Appeal”? C’mon NARS, you can do better than that.

    • Lorna

      i have to agree with you there. NARS always has such exotic/provocative names that “sex appeal” seems kind of bland for him.

      i’ll end of getting it anyway just because i love the shade and it reminds me of a powder version of enchanted but i would have preferred a cooler name.

  3. Angel

    I got all excited that they named the trio Okinawa, clearly I need it since I live on Okinawa…but blue and silver just don’t do it for me. Bummer!

    • Maria

      Born and raised in Okinawa! But no really feeling the colors. But got all hyped up about the name, proud to be uchina

  4. Finally one NARS Collection that I totally love. :)I actually didn’t liked anything from their fall 2010 collection so I was kind of curios to see this one. :)

  5. Avatar of Kristina Kalex

    I don’t really need any more Sex Appeal (ha!) but I want that blush anyway! :)

  6. Ana

    Please Beauty in a Box: NARS Junkie (Limited Edition) (Sephora Exclusive) come to all Sephoras here in Spain!!!

  7. Maeve

    Love the Petit Monstre lipstick. Little too expensive for me though. :(

  8. amy

    Poker Face nail polish and Sex Appeal blush look very pretty and want them both.

  9. victoria

    i can’t wait!!!

  10. Nicole

    Oooh Nars, just when I thought I was losing interest in you! I am definitely checking out the gold single eyeshadow and the new blush! So impressed with the holiday collections this year. :D

  11. Brandon

    Ooooh <3 I really like the fact that NARS comes out with only 4 collections a year with pretty much all new, permanent products. To me, its make the products a bit more special in a way. If that makes sense lol

    I cant wait to see your reviews of these products Christine =] Petit Monstre lipstick looks really pretty.

    • nicci

      It makes senses & I totally agree. I dislike if a brand comes out with so many collections. It is too overwhelming and I lose interest real quick. After awhile, the shades kind of start to look the same. It really gets old if the brand doesn’t introduce anything new either – I’m not talking about a new color but an actual new item/product.

      I’m attracted to the nude lipstick and blush the most from this collection.

  12. Oooh, I want that blush and the lilac nail lacquer!

  13. Anna

    Please review that blush and that awesome lilac nail polish sometime. =) They look gorgeous!

  14. HC

    I wonder if the blush is matte or shimmer?

  15. Shirry

    NARS Trio?!
    Kind of Weird thou…

  16. Shirry

    Safely PASS! Uhhh!

  17. Avatar of Kristen Kristen

    I like how a lot of this looks, and I’m digging the little nod to Lady Gaga in a couple product names! Petit Monstre, anyone?

  18. Beth

    ah I can’t so much to buy so little money

  19. Avatar of Marie Marie

    I pretty much like everything from this collection. I was ready to buy the blush, but I’ve seen it swatched, and it’s so sheer I’ll pass.

  20. This collection just rubs me the wrong way for some reason. Brown and purple are normally i color combo I really love, but in cosmetics I’m not so sure. Maybe its just me thought because these colors would make my coloring look very sickly.

  21. Leah

    I want 7 out of 10 of these items. I’m in trouble :o

  22. Maria

    All I can say is, WOW. I will definitely be picking up this collection. The eye shadows look absolutely beautiful.

  23. Natalie

    Can’t stand the look of the trio.. Meh

  24. diana

    i hate that combo of colors on the trio eyeshadow. it looks tacky, and it’s definitely something i could buy for $30 less at walgreens.

  25. Lacey

    When will this actually BE at Sephora stores? I went yesterday and the SA was clueless. They had the Midsummer set, but still had out all of the fall collection. She said “they have no idea when they will ever get anything”! Thanks for the help!

    I can’t wait to see this in person and resisting getting it online if it comes to the store soon!

  26. nunuiviet

    he okinawa trio eyeshadow is a copy of the trio mineralize shadow from the mac hang loose collection i think was called togetherness? but yeah exactly the same color, nothing new or innovative, really boring what nars is doing never really been a big fan of their product, the only thing i got from them was the orgasm blush but dont really like it coz too much shimmer in it…. for highlight and to give a bit of glow to my cheeks i definitly count on my mineralize skinfinish by candlelight, so beautiful!

  27. That trio reminds me of one of MAC’s ugly mineralized eyeshadow trios.

    And Lady Gaga, must you infiltrate everything? Pokerface nailpolish and Petite Monstre lipstick? Ugh.

  28. Nadia

    I’m not sure why but nothing about NARS appeals to me (apart from Sheer Glow). It seems so popular and I feel like i’m missing out but everytime I go to Sephora and swatch their products, all I see is a bunch of glitter and shimmer. It just seems sooo over the top!

  29. Avatar of Laci Laci

    Christine, how does the dark shadow in Melusine compare to Daphne?

  30. really loving both nailpolishes, and the ‘downtown’ lavender lipgloss!!

  31. katie

    does anyone know if this will be in canada?

  32. leslie

    Hey christine please tell me you’re going to review these products

  33. Leslie C.

    Hey Christine!! please tell me you’re going to review this collection!

  34. nicci

    This is just a rant – sorry, but I really need to vent. I went to Nordstrom tonight & talked to the SA to find out when they expect to receive it. I also specifically asked about Sex Appeal. She gave me such a confused look and had no clue. She thought I was talking about a lipgloss and didn’t hear anything about a new blush coming out. Wow… All she could tell me was sometime late November – which I believe is not true. The scary part was that she was the NARS Manager!! How can you be a manager and not even keep with a simple small collection?? Seriously?!!! :|

    • My NARS counter always feels like the LAST counter to get product in. Seriously. It’ll come out in October, but my counter might not have it until mid or late November!

      • nicci

        ugh, that is so frustrating! The Nordstrom I go to is supposed to be one that gets a lot of exclusive items first or rather quickly but I guess not with every brand :(

  35. lip gloss with olive oil is the best because it can moisturize your lips as well ;’”
