Here’s a look back at how well the new NARS Holiday 2018 Collection rated now that all the products to review have been reviewed! I really enjoyed the new Sheena Audacious Lipstick, along with the Rita/Mona mini set, with the Hot Tryst Cheek Palette and Provocateur Eye Palette being fun to play with.

I really love Blackheart. I have Nayeon but I swear it looks nothing like your photos on me. I really don’t need more lipstick, but there’s almost nothing out there like Blackheart.

I’ve been considering mixing Nayeon with something else because I’ve been disappointed by it … maybe I’ll mix it with Frost Sauce from Fenty’s Snow Nights trio, therefore completely justifying my purchase of that trio and Blackheart! Yes… I think I’ve hit upon the solution. 🙂

I think you mean Fog Snog. That’s the greige-ish one. That is the best layering l/s i’ve gotten in years. That set makes every dry l/s wearable (eyeing Anastasia, esp). Now have to try it over some of the KVD LLs. Greige is my thing, and it improves browns that pull too yellow, too. I’d get a single of that in a nano.

This collection has me spoken to my nostalgia enormously. Have gotten Hot Tryst and just ordered Siouxsie Audacious Lipstick last night. Would have gone full hog if not for being distracted by all the Pam McGrath stuff that also just dropped! Because, as much as I wanted Provacateur? When I ordered Siouxsie, I also ordered Metamorphosis! I should smack myself upside the head for that. Like seriously.

I did succumb to the Riot pencil set at the second S20 w/e. The rest, and Nars is my overindulgence, will be at the f&f. Still want to see Hot Tryst in person: not that it’s massively duped, it’s just not really a must have. 2 colors might be NG, and if I threw all my blush except a Nars away, I could still be in fine blush shape for the rest of my life.

I’m pretty let down that my sephora stores don’t have the power mattes out for this collection. I really need to swatch Blackheart myself before committing to it – but it’s easily my most favorite thing from this release. The eye palettes are cool too, but I don’t love NARS’s formula enough to purchase.
