NARS Fall Collection Review

A few weeks ago I showed you some pictures of a couple items I picked up from the NARS Fall 2010 Collection.

I have had a lot of time to play with them, so this is just my thoughts on what I picked up.

The first thing that caught my eye was the beautiful purple eyeshadow in Daphne. It's a vibrant matte violet color. It's a little similar to MUFE #92 but not close enough that I would say you didn't need them both. :D

NARS Daphne, MUFE #92, MAC Violet Trance

I have been using this color quite a bit and I love it. It's really pretty all over the lid or on the outer corners.

It's a little hard to blend, maybe because it's a matte formulation but I don't mind the extra work because it's such a pretty color.

Lastly I got the Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Palladium. I had never used these eyeshadow pencils from NARS before, so I was excited to try it.

It's a bright bold turquoise with shimmer. I loved the color but I honestly did not like the product. If you want the color intensity that you see, it's easy to achieve that, but at a cost because it will crease like no other!

If you want to use this product and don't want it to crease, you will have to sheer it out, like shown in the first swatch in the above photo.

I had purchased it to use it as the bright color you see, so for me it didn't work out. If you plan on using it as a sheer color then this might work for you, but if you want that color intensity, it will crease.

I did use it with and without UDPP and TFSI, but it still creased.

I was a bit disappointed. I really wanted to love it because it is really pretty.

That is all I picked up from the collection. Nothing else really called out to me.

If I had to pick, the must have from this collection is definitely Daphne eyeshadow.

Daphne looks really, really pretty. I agree that this collection isn't as stand-out as I expected from NARS. I did manage to order the Rajasthan eyeshadow duo from Neiman Marcus, but it has been back-ordered for about two months now! I'm still waiting...I know Sephora isn't even carrying that one, which I find odd.

That looks lovely. I do not wear such colors of eyeshadow, but I guess I can get away with this blue. I heard so many good reviews about Daphne might have to purchase this. Thanks, hun! :)
