The NARS Fall 2017 Collection launched today and with it the new NARS Blissful Blush shade which is probably one of the more unique shades of blush you’ll run into this Fall. I can’t recall the exact conversation I was having with my x-boyfriend but at the time he was trying to tell me something about eggplant. He was Dutch and he kept referencing to eggplant as aubergine. Now Dutch people have a complete grasp on the English language. You’d be hard pressed to visit Amsterdam and find someone that couldn’t talk to you in English. It’s one of the easiest place to navigate in Europe outside of England in my experience. But for some reason he could not find the word for eggplant. We must have been going around in circles for 20 minutes with me trying to figure out what he was referencing by aubergine. Obviously, the fault was completely my own as I didn’t associate aubergine right away with eggplant.
Blissful made me smile and think back to that rather comical Who’s On First? moment we had about aubergine.
NARS Fall 2017 appears to be headed into the metallic trend but also embracing a fantastic Fall color, aubergine or purple or if you like berry. Blissful is a shimmering berry shade that might be a little hard to difficult off the runway. It’s a shade I don’t think I could really wear but that doesn’t mean I don’t want it. In reality, it probably would have made a far nicer eyeshadow versus a blush.
