Just keep scrolling down..down....is there..prettttttttty pinksss, though, I wouldn't know what to do with those kind of colors greengrin.gif

In entranced and slightly afraid of the wall of face charts.

The pinks looks very pretty. Different than Douceur, which I'm happy about.

post #213 of 655

i'm not too worried about it whether it's super pigmented, or super sheer...now that i have my trusty yachiyo, i can take it all!

 

anyway, i think i'm on the bandwagon for blush + both duos. the orange single, i'm kinda thinking i'm okay with mac orange and saffron. right?

I find it works wonderfully with the more pigmented blushes, but with the sheer ones, I get almost no color if I use the Yachiyo - I wonder if it's something I am doing wrong or is it just that the brush blends everything so beautifully that the sheers disappear?

The spring products are available under each category on NARS website. I didn't look for all the products but I saw the blush and the eyeshadows

Ha ha same here. I'd just use the Yachiyo to apply it lightly.

I have to use a different brush for my less pigmented blushes. I feel like I have a different brush for just about everything.

Wee! Thanks for the update. Maybe with 2 day shipping I could get it by its actual release date, because I know I'm too impatient for Neimans to get it online.
post #220 of 655

Same here!  I keep the Yachiyo for the darker ones.  I bought Persia, Dressed to Kill, the pencil with the name I just cannot spell, and blush :P  Hopefully will get everything soon...!

Here's Karen's review of the entire spring collection:

 

http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/cosmetics/for-spring-2013-nars-is-putting-peppy-pigments-on-a-pedestal/

 

 

I think I'll pass the whole collection because I'm sure the blush is quite darker on my complexion (maybe looks muddy).:(

Ohhh..but whyyyyyyyyyyyyy?  I think the blush would look lovely on everyone!  No?   I am quite happy with whatever I picked so long as I get everything properly - NARS took off everything or at least I cannot see the products anywhere.  I guess a lot of people started ordering after the link was posted here :P :D

I'm a big fan of Nars for four years, so I have lots of their items and use everyday. I think I have 70% of entire Nars items.lol

Based on my experience, this kind of color doesn't look good on my skintone.:(

Ahh..okay..well, then I guess you are right..:(  You have 70% of NARS...oooohhh that would be an awesome collection!!  I just started buying NARS after I moved to the US.....their summer collection from last year was my first.  And then I got the TM, a few matte eye shadows, and a couple of their brushes....

post #226 of 655

Wait so now I can't purchase it now? ssad.gif I was going to place my order tomorrow when I had more time to think about all the other items I wanted. The only item from Spring I want is Seduction. From the perm line I'm getting Mata Hari and Eye Primer. I need to spend a total of $100 to use my voucher and I'm not sure what else I'd like to get. Hmm, maybe a blender brush...

I don't think so :(  One of my friends told me it's not there, and I couldn't find any of the products either.

Based on Karen's pictures Seduction looks dark. I still want it, but I can see how it might be the wrong intense for some skin tones. Her pictures are SO vivid. Thank you for linking this.

post #229 of 655

The Whole Spring collection was there today around 8pm...

I put Bouthan, Persia, Corcovado and seduction in my shopping cart, and then when I came back around 9pm to check out, they were gone.

Actually Bouthan and seduction (+Mad Mad World) are still there.. I still see them in my shopping bag, but not the rest of stuffs.

However it is quite tricky to find them, because if you put the word Bouthan in the search bar it doesn't show up.

I guess we will just have to wait till NARS decides it's time for us normal humans to buy the products :P :D

I think you should wait for other swatches before making a decision. Even though Karen's swatches are pretty great, her skintone is quite different from yours. Therefore colors would show up differently on you. By experience things look browner on her than it would on me. And with a good brush (like the Yachiyo), it wouldn't look too deep a color once applied. :)

 

Thanks for the links again!

 

The Pressed Powder seems fantastic!

Reviw and swatches of Corcovado Soft Touch Shadow Pencil:

Next she'll post a review of Mad Mad World Duo Eyeshadow, but she already posted a look with it on her Instagram (layered over Corcovado):

Actually, my MA at the counter also thought it's possible I can't use the blush because it's quite dark on my skintone based on some sneak peeks, but he couldn't be sure because he said he hadn't seen the actual item. Maybe I'll talk with him after it hits the counter.sigh.gif

 

 

Btw, since the pressed powder has no color, I keep thinking it's just an empty case (which means there's no refill in it.) by mistake whenever I see the compact.lol 

post #234 of 655

So based on Karen's swatches, I need everything except for the soft shadow pencil and the nail polish, lol! The blush is bold but I like that! I have different skintone for Karen too but I think the blush is unique enough for me to own. The nail polish is not like anything I have but also not a sort of colour I would wear.

 

I think the highlight of this collection for me are the eyeshadows though...they are so bright and happy! Exactly how a spring collection should be.

 

Oh and Katred, I have Saffron (LE from MAC) too but from Karen's swatches, Persia looks different, no? Or am I just justifying its purchase? haha

Thanks for the links. Or maybe no thanks. My list keeps growing. After that review of the pressed powder, I definitely want to get it now. Dress to Kill lipstick is also on my list because of Karen's swatch. I wasn't expecting the polish to be so sheer. It still looks sheer even after three coats. I'm still going to get it, but I'll just layer it over something else to make it more opaque.

Um, why do I not see Luster on your list? poke.gifx 100

Because my brain is on makeup overload LOL. Is Luster a highlight? I don't even know how to properly use MAC's Whisper of Gilt and Superb yet. Not sure if I should be investing in another drawer filler. SOS.gif

Well, since we have Karen's swatch of Persia now, here's her swatch of Saffron to compare.

 

http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/mac-makeup/mac-mickey-contractor-collection-swatches-and-pictures/

 

Persia looks a bit deeper and redder... I think whether there's enough difference to warrant owning both would depend on how much you like to wear those colours.

I'm so the wrong person to ask... I think this sort of colour would be amazing on your skin tone, so it would be nice to have more than one option. Besides, you could do a thematic look incorporating Persia and Chanel "Tehran" Rouge Coco...

Luster has a lot of shimmer, but it's definitely a blush. It has a lot of colour to it as well.

 

One thing that struck me is that I usually find Karen's swatches to be softer and more reminiscent of what colours look like blended (as opposed to Christine at Temptalia, whose swatches show more what products look like built up to their full colour potential... it's nice to have both!). If that's the case here, the pigmentation on most of these products must be out of this world. Even the Bouthan duo looks pretty intense in her swatches.

 

I love the lipstick, but I couldn't help but think it's a shade I've seen a lot lately: Chanel has a similar colour in their Spring launch (Envoutante), Guerlain has one in their Spring launch (Flirt) and had one in their holiday collection (Lou-Ling). Makes me a little scared, because those shades are ones that I tend to find particularly flattering on me, so I'm always tempted to grab them when I see them... Could get costly this season.

post #239 of 655

Luster is a blush

post #240 of 655

Thanks all. I thought I'd seen a couple of people my shade saying they used it to highlight. Actually, revoking my thanks you enablers!!! cutey.gif
