So pretty but the only things exciting in this collection are the multiples. Very interested in Violet Atum.love to see how it looks on darker skin.

Both the shadows (the single and the duo) look disappointing from the swatches (those shades where the glitter isn’t fully integrated into the formula so it looks chunky and the shadows don’t seem to have much colour when applied; of course, I could be wrong). I’ve seen so many destroyed NARS items arrive to you that it’s made me totally against ever ordering from them online.

LOL! Well, if it helps at all, the way NARS PR sends is all the compacts come together and are enclosed together (no individual boxes) so you have the hard plastic cases knocking against each other for about 3,000 miles (they come from NYC). Mine get packed by a different place than the ecommerce site as far as I know!

I’ve placed several orders from the site, and they all arrived perfectly! Even the Guy Bourdin shadows, which are extremely soft.

The only thing I was interested in was the duo eyeshadow, but that is just a huge microglitter mess.

The cheek and lip products look better than expected, but I’m pretty sure I already have something very similar.

The pigmentation on the glosses is disappointing. I was most excited for them. The eyeshadows look nice though! I’ll definitely try to pick up the pink blush and the pink multiple too.

I love the packaging for this collection. The eyeshadow duo is calling my name and that Violet Atom Multiple- I like how subtle it is.

Woo! So far, I don’t see anything I want here. Money saved (although I said the same about the spring collection and ended up loving Reckless blush)! I DO rather like the pink lettering on the packaging. The multiples look nice, but I only use powder highlighters and blushes.

The colors in the Parallel Universe duo are nice looking (if seemingly fallout prone), but the combo together seems kind of odd, like they don’t really go together. I feel like I’d have to pull something else out to use the duo, and I want my duos to be able to be used together.

I *love* Violet Atom! It looks like it will be a beautiful illuminating blush. I’m not too excited about the other items (although Starscape is pretty) but I’ll definitely check out Violet Atom when it’s released.
Will you be swatching the Silent Nude blush?

Is the swatch of Silent Nude missing? And I apologize for perhaps being the twelfth poster to ask. : )

I know sheer lipgloss es aren’t everyone’s thing, but these look really pretty.

I had high hopes for this. The only thing that looks promising to my untrained eye are the multiples which I hope they reformulated. those always go too dry on me and it stinks. I have tons that I bought before I was a smart Temptalia reader that I find I can only wear on the most humid, hot days of summer( Thanks dry skin!) . The shadows are gorgeous. but I am seeing potential fall-out and powdery blushes. The lip glosses look awful. I hate to be a “negative Nelly” . Hoping I am wrong on the shadows on the shadows and the multiples. They are gorgeous and I can see me splurging on those by mid April.

Hi Christine! Will you be swatching Silent Nude as well? I don’t mean to seem impatient or anything, just wanted to check since normally you include everything you have in the sneak peeks, but I didn’t see a swatch of it here. Thank you so much!

I am just an idiot, that’s all and didn’t catch it when I previewed the post last night! Fixed, sorry Kristina!

I definitely should have caught it! I check these posts twice (since I write them late and they post at 5am, when I’m sleeping), and yet I still missed it – unacceptable!

Awe man! None of these swatches look as good as I’d hoped. Why does Nars do that?! That Violet Atom multiple has the most potential in my opinion.

The eyeshadows are way more glittery than I realized. I was hoping the glosses would be more opaque. The Starscape blush is the standout for me.

Hmmm, this looks hit or miss. The glosses look terrible. Is it my imagination or do the powder blushes look kind of dry?

I’ve never heard of an Illuminating Multiple. What is it? One looks like a highlighter and the other looks like a blush. Both have my attention.

I love the silent blush but by the time I’d want to buy it, it probably would be sold out. I think some of the best makeup products come out in limited editions. Do you know a good dupe for the Nars Silent Blush?

Do you ever sell the makeup that you review? If so, I would love to buy the NARS Christopher Kane Single Eyeshadow in Outer Limits!
