NARS Autumn/Fall Colour Collection 2012: Review, Pictures, Swatches



NARS were recently in town to talk us through the new collection for Autumn 2012. It’s a beauty - an edgy, modern edit centred around smoky jewel shades or icy metallics for eyes, richly shaded lips and cool grey nails. 



I am incredibly excited by these relaunched eyeliner stylos – we all know I’m a felt tip pen eyeliner type of gal and these are seriously, seriously good. They’re super pigmented, ridiculously easy to apply and the colours are intense – I have carpates (black), atlantic (navy) and koala (grey) which, unexpectedly, turns out to be my fave. These are on counter now, and they're €26.



I would be hard pushed to choose between the two eye palettes on offer– they’re so different, but both incredibly beautiful and easy to work with.


High Society, €41, is the trio of forest green, lavender and purple, and Vent Glacé (French for ‘icy wind’) is a duo of platinum and silver. It’s €34.


They can be used separately or together for a huge variety of looks. To illustrate that fact, check out the dark, edgy look in the campaign shot - to create it, the deepest purple shade from High Society was used over Black Moon eyeliner pencil, which was used all over the lid. It was blended out with the lighter purple, and both Vent Glacé shades were applied to the lower lashline, over more Black Moon.



As for lips, just look at the rich, deep shade of that Rouge Tribal Larger Than Life lip gloss. I love it! If you want a smidgeon less drama, the More Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil, €20, is billed as a universally flattering auburn, so it should work with all skintones. 


The collection also includes The Multiple in Undress Me, €41 (can you believe I’ve never tried one of these products? I know, shocking!), blusher in Outlaw, €29, a moody grey nail polish called Storm Bird, €18, and two lippies - a matte deep red matte, Amsterdam, and a sheer coppery red, called Auburn Leaves.
The collection hit counters this month, so we can visit it now. I’m very interested in The Multiple – is anything calling your name?
