NARS Spring 2009 Review, Swatches, and Photos
NARS Spring Collection 2009 had my heart pounding in excitement and I was quite hyper to get my greedy hands all over it!
I have a few pieces of the collection to share with you today and I can’t wait to hear what you think of this exciting Spring Collection!
Jump ahead to read my impressions, see photos, and swatches of NARS Spring ’09!
I should mention that above anything else I’m really, really, really want to try out the new NARS Duo Concealer in a major way. Hopefully I’ll bring you a review of that soon.
Today I have NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Hula Hula to show you and two of the new NARS Single Shadows in Night Sun and Baby Girl. I haven’t yet had a chance to do FOTD’s with these and normally, you know the Muse, I like to include my FOTD’s with all my reviews but I was so excited to finally have pieces from NARS Spring 2009 in my hands that I just felt like sharing right away. I’ll work on FOTD’s soon so expect them to be posted sometime next week.
The new NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Hula Hula is, in my opinion, the best of the two new duos released. It has two shades of shimmering shadow that will make up a rather nice, natural bronzy pink look. I’ll use Sephora’s description for the two shades as they made it sound heavenly. The first shade in the duo is a frosty strawberry with fine gold shimmer (yum right?) and the second is a hazelnut with golden shimmer. The two shadows contrast wonderfully well and I think they’ll make a fine Spring look that’ll work well into Summer!
Although it’s not pimped in the promo image NARS released a new single eyeshadow shade in Night Sun. It deserves to be mentioned that all of the NARS “night” series shadows are always something special and Night Sun is no different in that aspect. It’s a bright true yellow shade with plenty of gold sparkle which will be ideal for pairing up with red, orange, or other warmer shades. Of course, by itself it looks stunning as well. Think MAC Pigment in Golden Lemon and you’ll pretty much have a great dupe (in press format) with NARS Night Sun. Gorgeous and I’m sure a favorite soon.
Finally I got NARS single shadow in Baby Girl. Baby Girl a nice, soft baby pink with soft golden shimmers. It’s quite a sheer shade but for lightening up the eye area it’s ideal.
So far, NARS Spring Collection 2009 is shaping up quite nicely and I look forward to exploring it further (especially that concealer). NARS rarely disappoints and Spring ’09 is far from disappointing! Fab job NARS the Muse loves it so far!
