First and last picture shows truer colors of duo. I tried to capture holographic effect in sunlight, I dont know if I had any success... I am not very good at taking pictures I guess

 

Thanks so much!  I really want this e/s duo from this collection.  I think it'll look amazing witht he Cap Ferrat trio from last year's Summer collection.

Liberte looks interesting!  And those nailpolishes look amazing for the summer.

Thanks for posting,  Marie Galante is a gorgeous duo ! I've just seen the entire Dior summer collection, waouh my credit card is going to suffer once again, NARS, Chanel, Dior... Beautiful collections awaiting !!!

Oooh i'm loving Liberte. I had been wanting to try Gina or Gilda for sometime however, when i went to swatch them, i wasn't really taken back by them and already own blushes close enough in shade to them. I would like to give Liberte a try out since as the other member commented, looks like a darker version of both.

 

Thank you for the lovely swatches!

Hi Ladies, I am glad you found my pictures helpful. I am on the fence about eyeshadow duo and so I didnt swatched it, only tested with brush.Its gorgeous colors, but afraid not for me.. I just love blush. I've tried Gina and Gilda before. Compare to both, I say Liberte is darker sister of Gilda.Liberte has enough red in it to give radiant glowing look, while Gina was just too orange for my pale skin. I also was surpised that eyeshadow duo and blush worked together quite well. Very unexpected color combination, but somehow it works :)

On the NY Times blog, it is said the Thakoon nail collection will be available May 1st.

Since special collections / lines are usually released 2 weeks or so after a seasonal collection, it's possible that the summer collection will be available in mid april. That's just a guess though.

Edit: The pure matte lipstick is called Moscow.

The eyeshadow trio is called Ramatuelle.

I found some little descriptions of Trio and Liberte blush.:)

Here's some excerpt.

 

  • Sculpt the cheeks with Liberté Blush (new for Summer 2012, for now use Irrésistiblement Bronzing Powder)
  • Apply the icy peach shade of Ramatuelle Trio Eyeshadow (new for Summer 2012, for now use the sparkling sheer peach shade of Delphes Trio Eyeshadow)

 

 

As I said, I think the blush is a darker version of Gina or Gilda since the description said it's similar to Brozing powder, so I think it's good for the people who has dark/tanned skin.:)

 

 

and here's a photo and it said Rihanna wore Liberte blush!

thud.gif That looks beautiful. It's like a more shimmery version of Demon Lover, which is not a bad thing.

One of the reasons I love Specktra is that it's a great way to find cool ideas I never would have thought of.

Thank you for the info! Is Liberte a universal shade?

Do you mean, would it look good on anyone?

It really all depends on your skintone, and what looks good on you.

NARS does one collection per season, so 4 collections per year. On top of that, they have an additional collection for the holiday season that usually consists of limited editions palettes and gift sets. Once in a while they release new lines of products (like the tinted moisturizers and the new lipglosses for example), usually, a couple of weeks after seasonal collections.

Hi,

 

Thanks for posting the pictures, it looks great. Ramatuelle is pretty, Marie Galante and Vendanges too, the whole collection is really gorgeous.

Oh my, Liberte blush is so pretty! I'm looking for a nice neutral bronzer type. If this one could double as that, it's coming home with me :)

Hi,

 

Thanks for posting, it looks really pretty. cheerleader.gifI have many duos from Nars but this one " Marie Galante " is gorgeous. The summer 2011 collection was nice but this one is much better I think.

Come to me, Marie-Galante!!!! The lipstick looks more brown in the photo, but I'm hoping it's closer to the plummy colour it appears to be in some of the individual photos we've seen. I seriously cannot wait for this one...

 

post #81 of 430

Nars summer collection is more exciting than the spring one! Between this and Chanel, it's gonna be an expensive season

 

post #82 of 430

The duo seems to be the most exciting one. Anyone likes the trio? I like how it looks but I wonder if it is too pale.

post #83 of 430
I like the trio.... But I feel like I don't know exactly how I would wear it. Pale blue is not a great color on my and I'm not sure the tan/brown is going to balance out the blue enough. I need swatches I think!
post #84 of 430

I really like the look of the blush =D Nice and natural

post #85 of 430

Hi,

 

I don't think it's too pale. When I bought " Delphes " trio I really thought it would be pale. But no, it's subtle but colours are great, maybe not intense such as " Burn it blue " cream duo, but really nice though.

NARS describes the shade as silver, not pale blue. ;) The Trio is composed of silver, icy peach and apricot colors.

 

 

If anyone's interested, here is the beauty breakdown of what Ginta Lapina is wearing on her face on the promotional picture for the summer 2012 collection.

 

NARS_Summer2012_Model.jpg

St. Moritz Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF30/PA+++ was applied to the center of the face with the fingertips and blended outward.
Set with Eden Loose Powder to create an immaculate complexion.

To lend the skin a light bronzed look, Laguna Bronzer was dusted onto the face in the shape of a ‘3’, starting at the forehead, swept on to the cheek, and then along the jawline.
The apples of the cheeks were warmed with Liberté Blush and the face further defined by softly dusting Taos Blush along the hairline.
A mixture of the silver and icy peach shades of Ramatuelle Trio Eyeshadow were brushed onto the lid and blended up into the crease. The apricot shade of the Trio was added in to the crease, with the silver shade swept along the lower lash line.
The upper and lower lids were lined with Via Veneto Larger Than Life® Long-Wear Eyeliner.
After curling the lashes with an eyelash curler, two coats of Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara were brushed on to the lashes.
Finally, the lips were lined and filled with Borneo Lip Liner Pencil—blending with a finger to soften the color. Moscow Pure Matte Lipstick was applied, then topped with Risky Business Lip Gloss for shine.

^^ Thanks for the breakdown! Stunning! The trio looks gorgeous on her, but I'm not so tan. But I think I'll still cave for it.

Wow thanks, I didn't read the description. It looked like a pale icy blue! I might be able to work better with silver, thanks!
