Cours du Soir

NARS Cours du Soir Kohliner ($26.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a dark, mossy green with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which was buildable to opaque coverage with two to three passes. The consistency was smooth, creamy without being too wet, and comfortable to use on the lower lash line and waterline.

The Kohliner formula is supposed to be a “creamy eyeliner that is “buildable” and “blendable” that can be used on the lash line as well as on the waterline. The description seemed rather apt, and I like that they described it as buildable. It was definitely an eyeliner that could be smudged if done so shortly after applying (I would apply it to one eye at a time, if you wanted to smudge or diffuse the edges). On me, the color wore well for six hours on my waterline and eight hours on my lower lash line.

NARS Jeanette Multiple Tint ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a brighter, medium pinky-red with cooler undertones and a natural finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that was buildable to medium coverage, but the more emollient texture made it the type of product that sheered out considerably once you started to blend it out. It worked better on bare skin or over liquid/cream base products and was less ideal over powder.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to be a “sheer, tinted format” with “natural-looking color” for “lips and cheeks.” Worth noting that while the physical size didn’t seem different, the tube contains about half as much as the regular Multiple formula (0.23 oz. compared to 0.50 oz.). The texture never fully dried down on the skin, so it retained that dewy finish even hours after applied, though it only lasted around six and a half hours as a blush (three hours as a lip color). The additional slip in the formula made it more comfortable to wear as a lip color than the original Multiples, which are thicker and can almost crumble on the lips.

This will launch on April 15th.

NARS Alice Multiple Tint ($39.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium, coral-red with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable color coverage (up to semi-opaque) that had a slightly wet finish and looked more like a cheek stain.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to be a “sheer, tinted format” with “natural-looking color” for “lips and cheeks.” Worth noting that while the physical size didn’t seem different, the tube contains about half as much as the regular Multiple formula (0.23 oz. compared to 0.50 oz.). The texture of the Multiple Tint was moderately emollient with a dewier finish that never dried down fully, so the wear seemed to be shorter at a mere six hours. It worked best applied over bare skin or liquid/cream products and was more challenging to use over powder. It felt like a thin balm in terms of consistency as a lip product, and it lasted three and a half hours on my lips and was non-drying.

This will launch on April 15th.

Old Church Street

NARS Old Church Street Velvet Duo Eyehadow ($36.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a new, limited edition duo (and formula) that launches April 15th online. The compact is the same size as other NARS’ eyeshadow duos, but the actual quantity is slightly less at 0.10 oz. (compared to 0.14 oz.). The formula felt less powdery and thin compared to most of NARS’ eyeshadows, which I found to be an upgrade overall. This particular duo featured a light, golden copper and blackened teal. The darker shade could have been better, though it was workable.

Blindfold

NARS Blindfold Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a dark, berry red with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly on the lips. The pencil felt smooth, velvety, and thin, which gave it a lightweight feel but made it “cling” a little compared to the typical lipstick. The color was still going strong after six hours of wear, though it started to feel a bit drying after five hours of wear. This shade also left a stain behind.

The formula is supposed to be “long-lasting” with “rich” and “seamless color.” The texture has a more velvety feel: smooth, thinner but glides on easily, and doesn’t have a lot of wetness/creaminess. The pigmentation varied from shade to shade with most shades having semi-opaque coverage. They were easy to apply along the lips and comfortable to apply, as they did not tug. The formula lasted anywhere from three hours to six hours, and some shades were somewhat drying and others were non-drying.
