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.

ColourPop Truth Super Shock Shadow
ColourPop Truth Super Shock Shadow

ColourPop Truth Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “neutral light beige.” It’s a light beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable consistency that worked well on the lid and didn’t sheer out (though it was easy to diffuse the edges) too readily. It started to crease on me slightly after nine hours. I also really like this one (personally) on my brow bone, so it’s been a new go-to for me when I test out other ColourPop shades, as when you sheer it out (on purpose), it gives a subtle sheen. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Smash Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “neutram medium warm beige.” It’s a light-medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nice pigmentation with a very smooth, creamy consistency that was blendable and easy to apply. It wore well for nine and a half hours before creasing slightly. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Desert Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “warm saddle brown.” It’s a medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had really good color payoff, but the color is more prone to sheering out on the lid, especially if you use a brush. I think a brush works with it, but you may need to add a second layer. The color wears well for ten hours on me without creasing or fading. See comparison swatches/ view dupes.

ColourPop 3 (Three) Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “cool-toned starlit bronze.” It’s a medium brown with warm undertones and a subtle gray cast paired with silver micro-glitter. It had good color payoff that was blendable and easy to apply. I had a little glitter fall out while I blended this shade, but I didn’t notice more than very, very minor fall out during the ten-hour crease-free, fade-free wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Doe-a-Deer Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “blackened violet.” It’s a deepened, blackened purple with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff that looked uneven when sheered out, so it needed more work to really buff and blend in. I felt like it lost a lot of its intensity once blended, though. It started to crease after nine hours of wear. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
