    I tried to order it, but the site was glitchy for me. It charged my debit card twice but said the order didn't go through! I'll just wait for it to show up elsewhere. I don't feel like having 90 temporary holds on my checking account! Keep us posted on how you like it.

    That's good news. I'm rather impatient when it comes to makeup....and everything else.

    I was able to check out the NARS Beauty Exclusives at Nordstrom today. Overall, I wasn't wowed. The only purchase I made was the mini multiples. There was a good range of colors and since I don't have any multiples, a good way to try them.

    the matte pencil sets - the formula seemed ok but all of the colors in each set are very similar. Swatching on my hand, 2 colors seemed to be identical, I'm sure on my lips there would be no difference.

    the blush palette is ok if you don't have many blushes from NARS. I already have hot sand and laguna. The blush colors were 'meh'. I have both Unfiltered palettes and the colors in those were better.

    I have to say that I wish NARS would get rid of the rubbery textured packaging once and for all. Almost all of my products in that type of packaging from NARS and other brands end up sticky. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I don't live in the hottest climate either. I'm going to avoid this type of packaging in the future or depot the products right after purchase.

    I was curious to see a review of the NARS products. I guess in the lip set should be eyes and lips, since the shades are similar. Use one on the lips and one on the eyes.

    I bought the mini Multiples set from Nordies & I really love all the shades in it. I also got my Blissful blush from Barneys. Its a very pretty plum/wine shade with multi color very subtle shimmer.

    There is a new Nars velvet lip glide set that is an Ulta exclusive with super fun bright summer colors that are new! I'm on my cell right now so I can't post a link. Sucks that it's an Ulta exclusive because I'd buy it in heartbeat if it was available in Canada.

    Ulta does ship to Canada and free shipping for orders over $100. Duties apply. I tried putting the lip set in my cart and with all taxes prepaid the total comes to $84CAD. TBH I would wait to see if it will pop up eventually elsewhere.

    It really doesn't seem worth it, does it! I have often ordered from Beautylish and while the duties vary depending on the item, it is way cheaper given that free shipping starts at 35$ or something like that. I'm hoping the set pops up elsewhere too.

    I just ordered Dayle, one of the new Audacious lipsticks from Barney's...6% ebates. I wish that I could have seen a swatch first, but the description: pale pink lilac sounds like a pretty winner.

    Ugh! NOT a winner. It's basically a Death Becomes Her shade on my lips Maybe it will look good on somebody, definitely not on me. It looks so pretty in the tube but it's very grey/dead on. Plus, it came broken & melted so I returned it right away. Bummer.

    Wow. The Bord de plage palette is up on Sephora Canada now, along with The Bay. So much for being a Nordstrom exclusive!

    YES! I call Shenanigans too

    I bought that mini set of the Velvet Lip Glides at Ulta today. I only tried on the nude shade so far & it's a SUPER pretty nude on my lips It's a darker mauvey Bound shade. Actually, all the shades look beautiful.

    Nars General Chat-20170908_004612-jpg

    NARS Precision Lip Liners, L-R : Cap-D'Ail and Le Lavandou.

    Based on my hand swatches, they are very smooth and pigmented for a wooden liner which I usually avoid. If they perform well I'll be back for more as they have some beautiful shades.

    The NARS lipliners and Power Mattes finally launched here. I'm liking Give It Up and Warm Leatherette but haven't decided yet and I'm hesitant about getting more liquid lipsticks as the formulas are just not comfortable.

    I'm so bad for your wallet lol It was a bit hard to choose because the swatches I looked at seemed so different. I hope you pick the perfect FIRST one
