NARS Autumn Winter 2011 Collection

NARS Autumn Winter 2011 Collection Next in line for the Autumn Winter Makeup Collections: NARS! I loved the ‘winged’ look in the campaign picture (shown in video) so I darkened down my brows a little, donned a sexy Vivienne Westwood number and got cracking with the eyeliner pencil! I haven’t gone anywhere near as dramatic as the campaign look, but I’m not really a dramatic kinda girl. What looks amazing in print sometimes looks a bit too OTT for ‘real life’ wear, so I have kept the eye simple and softened the line by layering a shadow over the top. How much do you love the lipstick in Pago Pago? Luscious. Take a look at the video – all of the product prices and so on can be viewed on HQHair here:

    I always felt like a full out black winged liner was a bit too much for me, but I really like this softer and contemporary version of it! I’ll give it a go with that pretty new fullsize BECCA palette that just came out of my Glossybox! (Yes, that was an elegant way of letting you know that I rekindled with this service. Since you asked in your last post, this month’s German Glossybox contained:

    – The Becca Velveteen palette (full size!! omg!! I LOVE Becca! I was so in awe that I sent the applicators flying half-way across the room when I opened it!)

    – a generous sample of the Julisis Silver Gel cleanser

    – a generous sample of the “Klapp X-Treme Hydra Complete” (whatever that is!)

    – a generous sample of the Schwarzkopf Professional Essensity Shampoo

    – a miniature (!!! not a tester!) of Vera Wang’s Princess (not my style of fragrance but a beautiful little gift for my beautiful little sister!)

    So yes, OVER the moon. I haven’t even made it past the “stare at the pallette in disbelief”-phase yet.

    (discl: I know I’ve been VERY enthusiastic in my comments here today as well as yesterday but no worries, I’m NOT doing drugs! haha)

    I already have the NARS Multiple in Copacabana. How is the Illuminator different? Do you think it is beneficial to have both the Illuminator and the Multiple? Thanks.

      @Sarah just a different texture really – I’d say you’re fine with just the multiple. I’m guessing that it’s easy to use?! x

    Holy crap, I’m lusting for Pago Pago – it looks the perfect, glossy nude.

    @admin The Multiple is very easy to use, and you can bring it on the plane without worries.

    Love this look – but as a 40something with OCD, it´s not for me. I’d be on all day trying to get them exactly right :) But I love it even without the eyes done. It´s so beautiful. Love the lippy and your nail colour.

    They’ve just started glossybox in Spain. I missed September’s but am eagerly awaiting October. The German one sounded great
