Every single thing looks beautiful. This will be one of those collections where I can’t focus on any one thing, my brain implodes, and I come out of it with nothing.

Stud is pretty, but everything just seems so… boring. If I wasn’t on a no buy I would consider the vengeful blush duo though- it’s my favourite one out of all the dual intensity blushes!

I have been so disappointed in the holiday collections this year, with the exception of Guerlain, but Nars is making up for it! Those lippies are all to die for, especially the Fast Life gloss. Are you going to review the blush palettes as well?

Wow, these all look awesome! I don’t see any duds here, and many great colors and finishes. Stud shadow is just gorgeous. I’m liking the glosses, especially the purple Provoke. And Redemption lipstick looks like it would make a nice topper. And the pigment on the dual blush highlighter is stunning. Are you going to be reviewing the gift sets too?

I’m really liking No Shame Lipstick and Special Force Lipgloss… but I feel there will be a lot of dupes for them so not sure if I will get them. I’m liking Never Too Late, just have to see the review.

This collection is going to make me broke! I am loving more than I thought now that I see swatches. I had no interest in the dual-intensity blush or the single shadows. But, now I will be watching the reviews closely for Never Too Late, Stud, and Vengeful. I’m also all over those Killer shine lipsticks. The glosses look great. I hauled it up big time with MAC Vamplifly though so I’m trying to restrain in that department. But, that purple one look very unique.

NARS just may have the best holiday collection so far. All of the swatches look pretty good! I most definitely want Stud and the blush duo. Maybe Provoke too. I’m really digging the color and I love that these aren’t sheer. Hmm…

This is really pretty! I like the colors a lot. It’s definitely “holiday-ish” but a little offbeat enough not to be cliched. If I were to get anything, it’d probably be Stud eyeshadow (I swear I have nothing like it) or Provoke lipgloss (it’d look lovely with Rebel lipstick I think).

I dont like some of the names … but some of the lippies are calling me. Nars might be getting some of my precious dollars this holiday season

All these lipsticks and lipglosses look wonderful! I have gotta get that wildly duochrome-y Provoke lipgloss. Envisioning it as a topper for my UD After Dark lipstick. Only thing that caught me off guard was that the promo pic showed Besame Mucho as what truly looked like a shimmer, Idk? I actually thought it looked a whole bunch like the LE MAC Mariah Carey lipstick, but I guess not…

I will buy the single eyeshadows and ignore the disturbing names and promo pictures of this collection. Though, if Nars persists in this positioning, I will gradually stop buying it just as I stopped buying Tom Ford, which made me feel more and more disgusted about the brand with every promo photo that I saw. It doesn’t happen overnight, but after a while brain starts to associate brand with something far away from beauty, with a sick and ugly side of the world. And then I just can’t bring myself to buy something from a brand. I do not live on a cloud and don’t need a brand to show me a handful of rosy bows and flowers like Japanese brands do, but I also don’t want to be dragged into someone’s imaginary dark, aggressive world filled with sluts, killers, drug addicts, freaks, and other sorts of sociopaths. Even Dior started touching this ground, probably trying to be more “edgy”. If trend goes on, I will be soon left with only Chanel, Guerlain, Chantecaille, Suqqu, By Terry, and Cle de Peau 🙁

No Shame and all the glosses look really nice. I think one gloss is very close to the Revlon HD Rose Quartz but more nuanced.

I feel there are many renditions of “Stud” out there, it just seems to be an all too common shade. I really love the dual intensity blush “Vengeful” though, such a gorgeous color! All the lipstick and lipglosses are beautiful as well, the colors just pop! Cant wait to try!…

I just love the duel-intensity blush in vengeful, such a pretty color. The shades “mortal” and “stud” I could do without. The color payoff is not too bright in mortal and there are just too many renditions of “stud” out there that it just leaves not much to the imagination. But the lipsticks and glosses I love and cant wait to try. Such beautiful, yet subtle shades.

No Shame is gorgeous, and I Stud and Never Too Late are quite pretty if a tad too warm. I really love the undertone of the highlighter in the Vengeful duo – not often you see those antique golds! Shame the blush is too dark and warm for my skintone.

I really quite like the eye shadows, but I also think that the Mortal shadow should have been a colour. There is a colour like this one lurking in nearly every palette. For those who love lip gloss – these look very pretty and the blush complements them beautifully.
