NARS Cosmetics Holiday Collection 2010

NARS Holiday 2010 brings us a new addition to the NARS family in the form of an eyeshadow trio! I’ve never seen a trio from NARS before in this style or format and I’m quite excited about and can’t help but think ahead to future releases of such product in other shades.

Let’s explore NARS Holiday 2010.


  • NARS Okinawa Trio Eyeshadow $45

The first trio eyeshadow for the brand is a striking triad of black onyx, silver and cobalt blue.

  • NARS Etrusque Single Eyeshadow $23

An antique gold hue reminiscent of Etruscan cast bronze art!

  • NARS Melusine Duo Eyeshadow $32

An ultra-modern union of rich purple orchid and silver-spun lilac

  • NARS Sex Appeal Blush $26

A soft peach blush, perfect for foolproof contouring

  • NARS Petit Monstre Lipstick $24

A luxurious berry pigment with a satin finish

  • NARS Little Darling Lipstick $24

A classic, nude beige with a sheer finish

  • NARS Downtown Lip Gloss $24

A metallic-pink lavender lip gloss that vibrates with party-perfect iridescence

  • NARS Bougainville Lip Gloss $24

A sensual pomegranate lip gloss that appears deep in pigment but sheer on the lips

  • NARS Pokerface Nail Polish $16

A vibrant, magnetic, purple orchid

  • NARS Bad Influence Nail Polish $16

A smoky taupe nail polish that is a unique yet universal hue

The colors in this collection don’t particularly scream Holiday to me but they do have a Winter vibe which will work well through the colder weather. I love the addition of the trio but would have loved warm shimmering gold for the Holidays but as I said the colors work very well for Winter.

    • 10/18/10 16:17 the Muse:

      lol dangster the named called to me too


  • 10/15/10 17:35 Tala:

    I read on Spektra that Sex Appeal’s really only for really fair-skinned girls. :( I want it, but I don’t think it’ll show up on my NC30 skin.


    • 10/18/10 16:17 the Muse:

      hey tala I heard the same :( crushed as I love nars blushes!


  • 10/15/10 17:36 mandy:

    the purple nailpolish looks like my kind of color! (i need to stop purchasing only purple :X)
    the blush looks nice too! are these are all LE?


    • 10/18/10 16:16 the Muse:

      they are indeed Le Mandy.


  • 10/15/10 19:23 jonnie:

    Wow, these are really all quite beautiful! I might want that first lipstick… I think I can dupe most of those shadows (love the purple duo!). The blush reminds me of Benefit Georgia, which I also have… I might have to check out the glosses too. I’ve been too lazy to drive all the way to Sephora, but I have a return so maybe this weekend…


  • 10/15/10 21:22 Kay:

    Sex Appeal sounds like my kind of blush, and I’ve wanted one from Nars for a while :) Etrusque looks lurvely too.


  • 10/15/10 23:20 Melissa:

    oh wow I need the eye shadow trio – those colors are unique enough for me that I shall make it mine. Perhaps it will show up on Sephora for fnf


    • 10/18/10 16:07 the Muse:

      hope so mel ;D


  • 10/15/10 23:23 Promise:

    I want the lip glosses!!!


  • 10/16/10 0:05 Josie:

    Loving the purple eyeshadow duo (for the lilac shade) and the two lipsticks.
    Will you be getting anything Muse? I can’t wait to see swatches!


    • 10/18/10 16:03 the Muse:

      Not sure yet Josie debating hun ;D


  • 10/16/10 6:25 Nia:

    Bougainville and Melusine look like interesting colours, though I’d prefer to see some more swatches.
    I’d like to try a blush sooner or later, so maybe Oasis? Do you like their blushes?


    • 10/18/10 15:52 the Muse:

      Yes nia very much ;-D blushes are great from nars


      • 10/18/10 16:33 Nia:

        Thanks, then I will give Oasis a try (and there’e me hoping it is not a pigmented b* ;))


  • 10/16/10 7:20 carolyn:

    I love the Orchid nail color…but these seem like spring items – not holiday!


    • 10/18/10 15:51 the Muse:

      agreed carolyn def didn’t get Holiday from them!


  • 10/17/10 18:33 jones:

    i might have to get the okinawa eyeshadow just to represent my homeland LOL but the bougainville lip gloss looks nice


    • 10/18/10 15:31 the Muse:

      oh my gosh jones, quite exciting to hear you’re from okinawa ;D where do you live now?!


  • 10/18/10 9:26 Lisa:

    I’m thinking I might pick up just the blush. The light peach would be great into spring. I know Benefits Georgia Peach blush barely showed up on me and I’m pale as hell. So with Nars color pay off, it’s a definite grab!
    Totally agree with you on the lack of holiday feel though. :(


    • 10/18/10 15:21 the Muse:

      I hear that the NARS one is very sheer Lisa so def swatch prior to purchasing ;-D

      for sure. Bit Winter but not Holiday :(


  • 10/19/10 18:36 Erin:

    I must have Downtown Lip Gloss and Pokerface Nail Polish. This collection isn’t super holiday but I love it all the same!


  • 11/11/10 11:33 Katy:

    I bought the little darling lipstick. I’ve never even worn lipstick in public before. I absolutely love it. I went from chapstick everyday to wearing this everyday. I don’t know what to say except that it’s perfect. I have light skin but not necessarily pale and it looks great. It is creamy (doesn’t dry your lips at all) I wouldn’t call it sheer but it’s not overpowering either. I am very excited about it.


    • 11/11/10 14:06 the Muse:

      katy happy to hear you’re so happy with the lipstick that’s great 😀


  • 11/11/10 13:42 Katy:

    ..actually I guess I would call it sheer. ..Also at work a few nights ago a lady I work with liked it and called it neutral. and my mom loves the way it looks too.

    I purchased it in store (Sephora) and it was the last one they had. Either they didn’t have many to begin with or it’s quite popular….
