I’m really drawn to the dual-intensity quad, but that terrified horse on the cover is really turning me off from it! :/ I wonder how Blackmail compares to Sycorax. It looks promising!

Hmm, some of the lippies look sheerer than expected and those lip crayons look dry, but some look great. I was eyeing Dolce Vita kit, but I would have to layer all 3 products to get the coverage I like. I do like the Dual Intensity shadow set. but not sure if I need it. Also like the looks of that lippie Fire Down Below

It’s such a classic. Got so many compliments on it, that I began to gift it. Think I’ll wear it tomorrow. It seems that cooler than this gets difficult to get right. (so many T reviews, less than favorable). This one is quite neutral & can lean in your color direction. ‘Course mine is old & IDK if the mfg has held up. But it is one of my all-time faves.

I know I comment a lot but thanks again for your dedication to us readers. I have read your blog everyday for the past 7 years. Keep doing what you’re doing! And I want the blush palette.

Every part of me needs that blush palette. NARS is definitely the holiday collection I’m looking forward to the most. Do you have any idea of the launch date(s)?

October 5th on narscosmetics.com, November 1st everywhere else except for items exclusive to NARS/Sephora then they’ll be at the respective retailer

I kind of suspect that they are, hence the combination of three similarly-toned colors. It enables the wearer to pick her favored level of coverage or layer to create it.

So much stuff it is getting confusing! I honestly am feeling the color side a little more. For the first time in a long time. I’m interested in the cheek palettes. The lip pencil set and the “magnificent Obsession set” are catching my eyes. I was interested in the “Killer heels” set. But, now that I see the swatches- not too much. Gosh, it’s just a ton of stuff. I wish he would of added some of this to the Fall collection. Why 2 cheek palettes?! I can’t imagine how your feeling Christine. On top of all the other brands!

Oooh, look at those blushes! Gorgeousness. I’m not really liking the lippies, other than the Audacious lipsticks. The others just look sheer, except for Red Velvet. The pencils look kind of dry.

Same here!! The blush palette I’m surprisingly really interested in! I’m wondering why the Audacious lipstick set has 5 of their regular Audacious lipsticks for the price of 5…it doesn’t make sense to me, like…why not just buy any 5 you want, if it’s the same price??

Ahhh, A Woman’s Face looks like that perfect “everyday” nude/natural lip combo that I love, but not so sure I need, because I already have UD Liar and MAC Marque? And I really love the Dead Of Summer DI eyeshadow palette a lot!!!

Wow, normally I’m all about lips but that eyeshadow palette looks amazing! I feel a lemming coming on….

Also that Ferocious blush is gorgeous. Not sure I could justify buying the palette for that one colour though. I’ve not checked but is it a permanent colour?

And finally the group of Audacious lipsticks is a great starter if someone were looking to start a collection. Too pricy for my budget but it would make a lovely gift for a lipstick lover like myself. I do have Anna though and it is beautiful so I testify to3 how good it is!

Gladly, I’m very disappointed, so I’ll save a lot of money. Thank you, Christine. The only products that I remotely liked were the full lipstick set, but since you’ll pay the full price of the lipsticks for them, I don’t see a reason to get them as a set.

Are the colors on the blush palette correct?

The site has them like this: Natural Glow, Gilded Apricot, Rouge Coral, Flushed Primrose.

Loving this palette’s coral blush.

Are they up for purchase? I know it says the 5th but I know sometimes they sneak it out early 🙂 I want everything! It’s all so beautiful…. I love your site! You are awesome!

They only told me October 5th at narscosmetics.com and November 1st! If NARS does anything early, officially, then my guess would be newsletter members, but I really have no insight into that!

I’m liking the eyeshadow set but I think I can pass everything else. I’d rather buy a few shades of the Audacious lipstick I know will work for me instead of having two shades I’d never wear.

Does anyone know how the Nars Ferocious Blush in this year’s blush palette compare to the Nars One Night Stand palette’s Goulue blush from two years ago? This is the deciding factor on whether I should get this year’s palette. Thanks!!

I have several of the lipsticks (in some cases, 2nds or 3rds of them) and in the permanent collection, they’ve never been sheer as they’re showing up here. Fire Down Below, Jungle Red and Joyous Red are normally satin or matte. What’s showing up here look odd. I prefer the existing formulations, not whatever’s going on in these sets.

EXACTLY. I’ve got the oldies & I’m glad. That’s what I meant about mfg consistency w/ FDB. Joyous also looks too sheer. Flamenco is/was sheer. Maybe they didn’t keep up the oldies’ quality, after Audacious was such a hit. I’m not sure Dolce Vita looks right, either. Maybe it’s what I’m calling HPS: Holiday Palette Syndrome. But Nars is not always reliable, isn’t that the word for replicable time after time? I have ~5 Orgasms & only 2 match in the pan. They look goofy in the Z palette.

any idea if the NARS An Abnormal Female Lip Pencil Coffret is going to be at sephora or if it is a NARS exclusive? I’m dying to have that on my vanity!!!

You’re rolling Christine girl! Great job getting swatches out so fast! The dual intensity palette looks good. And I’m feeling that blush palette too!

Love that eye shadow quad – all stunningly beautiful colours. Maybe not original, but very workable for all complexions. The lipstick Charlotte is my favourite and the blush palette is pretty good too.

I wish for this new Dual Intensity eyeshadow set, they had included a different shade instead of Subra again (from the Narcissist palette)…I was hoping it would be Pasiphae!

I’ll definitely be snatching up that blush palette! I love that there’s no bronzer and all the shades appear to be WOC friendly. I’m also digging that lip pencil set. Between the colors and the case I just have to have it lol

I had scoured the interweb searching for the names of the 3 Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in the big bullet set and of course, I should have known to turn here first!!!! You are the best- I can’t believe you got all these swatches out already. Knowing that the set includes 3 permanent shades is kind of a let down though…I don’t think I will purchase simply for the packaging and slight savings (though I was always planning on trying Sex Machine). I was really hoping at least one if not two of them were new shades! Also, did you know they don’t list the shade names on the NARS website? Just the colour description- I found it odd :/ and perhaps slightly misleading…

I think I will keep my eye out for the face palette for Sephora 😉 thanks again for all your hard work!!!
