Hello, spring (makeup)! Here I’m wearing the Chiang Mai and Thessalonique Eyeshadow Duos ($35 each) from the new NARS Spring 2017 Wildfire Collection, which is reminding me that we have a looong way to go before spring
I know that this maxes out the Cheese-O-Meter, so my apologies for that, but you know what I’ve always wanted to do?
It’s this thing I’ve seen on police shows where there will be a couple of police officers sitting in their car on a stakeout, and they’ll be watching a perp (yes, I said “perp”) across the street, but then the perp will do something illegal and make a run for it, so one of the officers will say, “Light ’em up!” and they’ll turn on the lights and sirens and chase that fool down!
I’ve always wanted to say “Light ’em up!” like that. LOL!
Yes, I know, I’m weird. 🙂
Anyhow, whenever I play with these new NARS Eyeshadow Duos, I say “Light ’em up!” now just like that, except that I’m referring to how luminous they are.
They are SO glowy and shimmery, but not frosty at all. It’s a very specific level of luminosity, and the only other place I can remember seeing something like it before is over at Chanel with their Les 4 Ombres baked eyeshadows.
I’m excited to also see it at NARS now because… Remember when I was going through that phase when I was all about mattes? Well, now I’m all about luminosity.
You know how it is… These things are cyclical.
There are two of them in the NARS Spring 2017 (I almost typed “2016”) Wildfire Collection, which is available now, and they’re $35 each. Chiang Mai, the sky blue and reddish copper one, is limited edition, and the smoky violet and opalescent pink one, Thessalonique, is permanent.
I’ve looked around, and I haven’t spotted any exact NARS duo dupes, which is exciting.
The NARS Spring 2017 Wildfire Collection
The Wildfire color story references the earth, but not in a typical greens and browns way. The colors are more like a red rock cliff overlooking a bright blue sky and a valley speckled with spring wildflowers.
I’m feelin’ it.
