NARS Claudette Collection is a new, limited edition release that includes an eyeshadow palette, blush duo, four Audacious Lipsticks, and six Audacious Sheer Matte Lipsticks. One of the Audacious lipsticks and three of the Audacious Sheer Matte lipsticks appear to be exclusive to NARS’ site, so I don’t have those yet (but I purchased). Here are swatches of everything else, though! πŸ™‚

Ah, I was so pumped for this collection when I first saw it, especially I must admit with that beautiful packaging, but the swatches are like a cold bucket of water. Even the blushes are totally different from what they looked like on the Nars web site, the colours are nothing special. the medium mattes look do not look comfortable and cushiony at all. The 3 darker shades of the palette seem like they would run together on the eyes. Phew, I thought I was not going to keep my minimalistic goaks for this year, but for now I am fine!

Christine, what would we do without you? Your photos and color descriptions are so much more accurate than what the brands provide. I’m sure you’ve saved us all a collective fortune. Keep up the good work!

Agreed! I was about to purchase, then reviewed your reviews. I wanted eye pallet and Berenice, but reviewing the swatches, which looked very different on their website than your photos, made me see that I definitely have things already in my collection that are similiar.

This new NARS release is just stunning.. I have ordered Augustine, a beautiful taupe/nude lipstick … I want to order the blush and probably the eye palette, next. The packaging is stunning- I love the butterflies- I wish that theme would have been on the eye palette… but it’s all just beautiful. I’ve already seen three tutorials on it and the shadows look to blend out just beautifully on 3 different skin tones. Excited!

The eye palette is much nicer than I originally thought it would be – the swatches look quite pigmented and there appears to be no duds (not always the case with Nars). I think it is a lovely neutral palette, although I would have dupes for the shades I like (the top row).
The lipsticks look pretty good too – with Claudette my favourite.

This is a pretty collection, but it looked more interesting in the promo photos than the swatches led me to believe. I’d hoped to pick something up, but the renamed “orgasm/laguna” duo is a miss and the bottom three matte eyeshadows kind of look the same. Also the lipsticks are too pink for my personal taste. Still pretty, but it’ll be an easier pass than I first thought.
