Looking for a little something special to perk up your Fall, Winter and Holiday beauty looks?
Look no further than the beautiful and color-rich NARS Holiday 2014 Collection.
There's something for everyone in this year's lineup, but two of the stand out favorites are:
NARS Femme Fleur Hardwired Lipstick (shown, above). This "Hardwired" lipstick series is a new lipstick finish which combines the unique pigment combinations with a sheen finish. This color is a muted, dark copper brown at first glance. But when you look at little closer after applying it, you can see just the faintest layer of golden shimmer.
The color was opaque and also fairly moisturizing. While not billed as a long lasting lipstick, I did get 4-5 hours with just a bit of fading after drinking coffee, etc. This is now my go-to neutral shade! It's perfect for day or night and I love how warm the brown tone is. This is a shade that would look good on darker skin tones, and many with warm/olive skin tones as well. The lipstick case also has the special holiday packaging design on the cap.
For nails, the new NARS Barents Sea Nail Polish (shown, left) is another unique and beautiful shade to incorporate into your collection.
This bold blue has a metallic finish and a deep blue fine shimmer that can be seen throughout.
The texture was thick and creamy and two coats did provide the color in the bottle. This dries to a semi-shiny finish and I got about 4-5 days of wear with a top coat before any shipping.
There are two other nail shades shades in the Holiday 2014 Collection and all three have this beautiful specialized floral packaging on the bottle. This is a true find for the beauty lover in your life if your starting to look for holiday stocking stuffers/gifts! - RLB
