    Ohhhh Tolede looks totally gorgeous! Can’t wait to see your swatch!

  2. Aww, Tender Night is so sheer :( Might as well stick with an iridescent gloss.

    Barrow is my favourite colour ever! Interesting to see it as an eyeliner – eagerly awaiting your review :D

  4. dia

    At first I thought the Tender Night swatch was just bare skin! Eeep!

    Hi Christine! Didn’t know where to ask but can you recommend a good clear gloss? Thanks.

    • I really have no idea what to recommend – I so infrequently use clear gloss that I’m stumped as to what my favorite would be! I know MAC makes one but it’s super tacky. Maybe Chanel’s newest? Great texture though there’s a lil’ shimmer.

    OMG, I’m a really big fan of NARS, but I’m very disappointed at the lilac lip pencil. What’s wrong with the lip pencil? :(

  7. Avatar of Daisy Daisy

    Mildly interested in the lipstick but everything else is getting a pass.

  8. lily

    I’m a nars lover (forever!) but out of all that, I only like the lipstick :X

  9. Avatar of Precious Precious

    I’m only interested in Madness Nail Polish and Tolede Lipstick. :(

  10. Katie T.

    Ooh, that eyeliner and the shadow duo look terrible; streaky and chalky. Can’t wait for the actual review.

  11. Avatar of Amy xamyx

    I thought the duo might be a possibility (albeit a slight one, as I wouldn’t touch the yellow), but the purple shade just looks awful. Euphrate may end up coming home with me, though…

  12. Anna

    Tender Night looks like a dupe for MAC Pervette!

    Ooh, Barrow looks so fresh! Can’t wait to read your review for it :)

    I have similar coloring to yours, as well as the same eye color. Do you feel like Barrow Street suits you? Because it’s really pretty and quite unique looking. I’d love to pick it up.

  15. Avatar of Anne Anne

    Damn Christine, the amount of work you go through is impressive!

    The Barrow eyeliner looks really nice! Hope it performs well. The gloss could interest me too.

  16. Avatar of Floz Floz

    Oh wow, that Multiple looks amazing! I’m not generally a fan as I find it tricky applying cream products over foundation, but that colour is stunning and apparently free of chunky glitter!

    I’m in love <3 It will be mine! Thanks for the great swatches as always :D xx

    Only decent looking products are the lipstick and gloss, and that’s coming from someone who don’t like lip products!

    Nuttin’ here for me – I don’t like or look good in orange and the eye shadow combo just seems, well, weird.

  21. Angelika

    I am really disappointed with the lip pencil. This year I noticed a lot of companies releasing lilac/lavender lip products but lavender just doesn’t suit me. I have hope for the fall season to bring some beauties my way.

  22. Georgie

    The products are interesting but I don’t think I’d actually wear a single one of them

  23. Kristy

    I think the velvet matte lip pencil is a sheer violet opalescence, like MAC violet lipmix. Just weird enough that I might need it.

  24. I am really interested with NARS Fashion Rebel Eyeshadow Duo. Bright colors during the Summer season looks really great. I can’t wait for the review.

  25. Avatar of Kathryn KEG

    I like a lot of this collection, but I’m not too crazy about the sheer lip pencil

  26. Avatar of Dee GUSnail

    Sigh, the purple eyeshadow looks patchy.

  27. Okay – I really love Tolede, Puerto Vallarta, Euphrate, & Barrow Street look great!

  28. Avatar of Linda Linda

    I love it!

    Holy cow I may actually get something from a new NARS collection- I love Barrow Street and Puerto Vallarta- the gloss is gorgeous as well I just never wear gloss. That duo though- François Sweetie Darling- if you’re doing bold gorgeous colors they require smooth, strong, even pigment. I find sheer “shocking” colors an affront to my nature.

  30. I’ve never tried this brand but these colors are perfect for summer! I love them!

  31. I just had a thought – all swatches are done on skin, except for nail polish. I’m not saying you should swatch polish on your arm (LOL!!) but for some reason it struck me as odd!

  32. That Velvet Matte lip pencil is . . . special. Looking forward to your review of it :)

  33. Lauren

    Ooh, the gloss, lipstick and single eyeshadow look wonderful. I might have to indulge myself!

  34. Avatar of Marina Marina

    Barrow Street is GORGEOUS! Would love to see a pos on how to wear it as I’m not great at actualy using colored eyeliner even though I love it!
    Looking forward to the Paris Follies review. Can you compare it to MAC Star Quality cremesheen from the Reel Sexy collection?
    Tolede is a lovely color as well!
    Thank you!

    Can’t wait to see the lipsick swatch!:-)
