I received these gorgeous NARS products recently! The new NARS Holiday 2018 collection! The collection is limited edition and inspired by the iconic punk fashion of the 1970’s. It’s a pretty big collection and different from their usual sleek and chic packaging although they’ve kept the lip packaging in line with their own style which I like. Overall you will find bold colors and shimmer. I swatched my favorites which you can see below but I’ve also listed what they have within the full collection.

POWERMATTE LIP LUSTER – This consists of 6 brushed metal shades. These feel ultra light on the skin and have good pigment. I actually think that sometimes brand put a bit too much pigment in which in turn gives a cracked finish after a while but these have just the right amount. It glides on and almost feels like water on the skin when you first apply it. Although it’s called ‘powermatte’ it has a brushed metal finish which I didn’t think I would like but I think the ‘brushed metal’ is minimal enough for me to still wear it. My personal favorite is ‘Shredded’ and ‘Pierce’.

PROVOCATEUR EYESHADOW PALETTE – Ok so this is a stunning palette but I wish they sent me the ‘Scandal’ palette because it looks INSANE! That’s a palette I would definitely do a tutorial with….just go check it out because it’s so stunning! Getting back to the Provocateur palette; it’s amazing pigment and has 6 shades. It ranges from soft to bold with a pop of color.
