NARS Fall 2008 : My Swatches

nars fall 2008 swatch cordura eye shadow, fez
This swatch is just because I know that someone will ask me to compare the bronze-gold shade in Cordura with Fez. They are similar, but definitely not the same!

All of the eye shadows are extremely pigmented, so a light hand is all that you need. As with all NARS shadows mine were very easy to apply and blend in to the eye.


nars fall 2008 swatch senorita lipstick lip stick
This lipstick might be one of my new favorites! It has a very faint shimmer, but it is the perfect shade for my lips. Have you ever heard that old saying that the way to pick out the perfect lipstick is to look at the inside of your mouth? Well, this is that color for me, but about 1/2 shade darker. I wore it to the mall last night to pick up a few items at MAC and the SA was staring at it and finally had to compliment me on the color!

nars fall 2008 swatch dolce vita blush
There is a lot of buzz surrounding this blush. Dolce Vita is well on it's way to becoming the new Orgasm, and branching out into blush is just one way to do that.

This blush is much more pigmented than Orgasm, so pale girls like me will want to use a bigger brush than normal to prevent looking a bit clownish. But, it is a very pretty pink flushed color. Those with slightly darker complexions than me will love this one!

NARS Fall 2008 is now available at NARS Cosmetics

The Cordura duo is really awesome. I have been waiting for this collection to make its way to my local Nordies. I'm hoping they have it up this weekend for the Anniversary Sale. That duo, the blush and the lip gloss are on my list.

thanks for the swatches, these are great! I think I must have dolce vita blush (even though I am pale too). I'll try senorita on first before deciding but it looks pretty in the tube.

Fez must look real good on blondes.Definitely i must try it for an evening make-up.

Gorgeous swatches-I'm keen to delve back into Nars eyeshadows after intially being scared off by the crappy formula of 'Fathom'. Dolce Vita looks beautiful too, I can't wait to try that one out!
