Another season, another collection, lather, rinse and repeat. Believe me when I tell you, there are no complaints here. Out of the nine pieces NARS released, I fell for Outlaw, a "a soft rose tone with golden shimmer" blush and Autumn Leaves, a "shimmering warm brandy" lipstick. What can I say - I'm a sucker for NARS' blush and lipstick.
Outlaw is insanely closely related to Orgasm; fruit-inspired, golden shimmer and that shade of pink which makes you say, "I'll have what she's having." The light-reflecting shimmer highlights and illuminates and the fruitiness gives you that just-pinched/had a glass of wine rosiness. Outlaw doesn't discriminate against skin colour and ultimately you are responsible for the amount of colour payoff during application. I used MAC's brush 168, smiled and applied Outlaw to the outer portion of the apples of my cheeks. By the time PT rolled around, 11 hours later, last Thursday night, my cheeks were still awash with Outlaw.
Can you hear that rustling in the distance? No? Why, it's Autumn Leaves! And that little girl pouncing and bouncing from heap to heap, can you see her too, messing up her dad's hard work? Burnt orange, gold, honey, fiery red and mmm float and flit about in mid-air. Yeah, I checked the dictionary, mmm is a word ;) Autumn Leaves makes for a great any time lip look and sticks around for three to four hours.
