Can anybody tell me if the Dressed to Kill l/s is going to be perm? I seem to remember reading that somewhere.

Welcome! :)

It is permanent.

What kind of code do they send out for birthdays? Is it a % off code?

Yeah, I have no idea why I was still able to get it. It was a 3 piece Sugar lip thingy - no discount, just a small present.

Applying it wet will yield more colour, but I still think that they should have given the formula of this duo a different name, because it really is completely different than what you would normally expect. I think that having it out there with the same description that applies to all of their shadows is somewhat confusing for consumers.

 

The more I look at this, the more I'm actually interested in this one. For whatever reason, I seem to be able to wear pink shadows well- I think it's because they tend to brighten up my complexion, which has light pink undertones as is. One could say that I probably don't need more pink shadows, but I do enjoy them.

 

I like pink eyeshadow coz they really bring out the golden flecks in my eyes. My hubby said my eyes look like honey when i wear pink shades. The pink duo is a must for me for that reason, and so are the other two eyeshadows but mainly because they'r fun sigh.gif

Btw, wow..Seduction is really dark.

I have Outlaw, Dolce vita and Liberte, so I can feel how dark Seduction is. tong.gif

I love Dolce vita the most.

 

yaaaaa now I'm scared of Seduction. And i apply ALL Nars blushes with a large powder brush. I've tried Dolce Vita before and it makes me look super red...i think it doesn't really work on cool skintones to be honest. At least not on NW25 ish skintones....

That's what I think.

I don't think Seduction is good on lighter skin or cool skintones because it's darker and redder than Dolce Vita.

Seduction will be fabulously beautiful washed over pale skin!!!  Do not be afraid pale beauties. And, it will be equally stunning on WOC for that perfect flush.

Since I blush a fairly bright red/ pink shade anyway, I actually think this is going to look fairly natural on me.

 

Dressed to Kill is now a must have on my list. Absolutely gorgeous shade!!!

me too! i'm glad it's permanent...so we have some time....i might actually wait till spring, instead of rushing to buy it in the middle of winter...

from rads' swatches, i'm starting to wonder if i need saffron too....do we know if it's LE?
post #345 of 655

I have the blush and lipstick sitting in my Sephora cart. I definitely want them, but I keep getting the feeling that I should wait for some reason.

post #346 of 655

I want the blush, lipstick and Persia single eyeshadow. Since all these are perm, I'm not in a hurry, but I'm also impatient. This collection is so gorgeous.

Thanks, VampyCouture!  So what are you getting? I haven't used any of the products - hope they look just as nice when I start painting them on :D :D

Dressed to Kill Lipstick

Persia Single Eyeshadow

Seduction Blush

 

That gloss pencil looks sensational in the swatches, so I might get that a little later as well!

The review of Mad Mad World from T:

 

http://www.temptalia.com/nars-mad-mad-world-eyeshadow-duo-review-photos-swatches#more-37702

 

 

Btw, only got B+? I seriously don't get it.

She said it lasted 8 hours (I think it's long-lasting enough!) and I can't still find any drawback of it from her review.

post #355 of 655

Btw, the more I see Seduction blush, the more the blush keeps seducing me to buy it. BUY ME...BUY ME!!! rofl.gif

Glad to know this before I bought it! I'm mostly neutral, but my skin leans cool (Mont Blanc or Siberia rather than Gobi in Nars terms). And your hubby has a real talent with words... Eyes like honey just sounds beautiful and such an original way of expressing it.

girlhaha.gif Yeah, talking about Spring in January in Canada (unless you're out west) is kind of ridiculous. We've got a loooooooooooonnnnnnggggg wait ahead of us...

I think it's because of the weaker colour payoff on the green shade. It does look wicked powdery in her swatch photo. I'm guessing it might apply better damp than dry. Lucky that Nars shadows work both ways!

post #357 of 655

I ordered Seduction last night (along with Mata Hari and Luster) so you friends can get off my jock now. cutey.gif (Sorry, my daughter says that to us.) Rad's swatch is making me lem the lipstck again. It looks gorgeous on her skin.

ummm Karen and T are grading Bouthan completely different from each other :/ I think I still will buy all eye shadow products from this collection. Pinks are usually a bit powdery so I have to see how it performs on the eyes.

Yeah, I'm very confused by that. It's like they didn't even get the same product. If I end up with Bouthan, I'm also going to have to see how it works as a blush combo...
