The NARS Makeup thread
I love NARS lipsticks and wanted some ideas on new colors to use. What are some of your favorite shades? Thanks for your help!

I highly recommend Nars Multiples... I love the cream to powder texture, easy application... And depending on how you blend and where you put it, most colors can be used and look good on anyone... What style are you looking for? Is there a store nearby where you can try them on? For a neutral glow, I'd recommend the Maldives (pink champagne color w/ shimmer)... or Copacabana (a "glistening pearl" color). Deeper bronzes or plums also are great for fall... depending on the color theme you're looking for.

I'm looking for something natural and romantic,so the pink champagne shade sounds perfect

I just found the selection of shades at narscosmetics.com. I want them all! Riviera,Maui and South Beach look gorgeous too.

www.narscosmetics.com is often sold out in certain colors (I don't know why they don't have a full stock of everything considering it's their site). I think www.sephora.com also carries NARS. I'm a big fan of their products. I think NARS is owned by the same parent company as Sheisedo (not that that matters a whole lot). I think their shadows are the most delicate of textures.

Does anyone know if NARS eyeshadows are any good? I'm interested in purchasing the duos Paris and Sea, Sex & Sun.

I love nars eyeshadows... the colors and texture are great on all skin colors. if you combine them with an eyeshadow base (i use consealer underneath), the colors POP!

I have Sea, Sex, & Sun, and I wore it almost every day last summer. I'm starting to wear it again as I wear more gold.

Colors are really versatile, blend well, and the powders are of a very velvety fine texture... highly recommended.

I've only tried the Rated R Duo, but the colors blend like a dream and they're really vibrant. I don't see why any of the others would be of lesser quality. I say go for it!
