NARS Balthazar duo photos and swatches

Gorgeous duo. Very pigmented. They glide on like butter, and have a most unique finish I've ever seen. Almost iredescent but not quite- they actually look pretty metallic or foiled even.
If you like warm colors grab this up.
It looked weird on me since I'm so pale, but any darker complected lovelies out there could rock this.

NARS hula hula duo swatches & photos

Very sexy duo. Very glittery too. I mean super huge chunky glitter. So much glitter that it falls into my eyes and hurts them *cries* - but I love this duo nonetheless.
I love wearing the pink on my lid with smoked out black liner, and loading it with mascara. It makes my green eyes POP. Great colors for summer, kinda beachy.

NARS silent night eyeshadow photos and swatches

My camera didn't completely capture the chunky glitter that is scattered about in silent night. But believe me it's there. Nice color, horrible pay off and texture to work with. sorry NARS.


NARS pearl beach cream eyeshadow photo & swatches

Very neat color. I hate cream shadows but after seeing this at the NARS counter I knew I had to have it. It's quite unique. A very pale grey with pink and purple iridescence.
I am sad to say it turns a muddy lavender color on my eyelids. I am going to try it with NARS strada on top, I've heard it's a hot combo.

Chanel Rouge Allure # 11 Surprise lipstick photos & swatches

Not my usual kind of color, but very pretty non the less. I definately can't think of any dupes off the top of my head. It looks very purple in the tube, but once you apply it turns a really pretty mauve color, surprise!

Chanel quadra eye shadow Dunes photos & swatches

Pretty, but is it worth the $65 CAD price tag? In my opinion no. I'd rather get a Dior quint. Don't get me wrong, this is very high quality and gorgeous colors, but very easily dupable.
