    It looks like a combo of Mata Hari, Amour, Albatross and Orgasm!

    • PS – Karen, have you noticed the weird plasticky scent in NARS glosses? I really loved the color Chihuahua, but I just couldn’t get over the scent, it was so disgusting. Do the newer “Larger Than Life” ones have that scent also?

      • stalkthepostman says:

        OMG, YES. I can’t wear their glosses for this reason – the scent totally turns my stomach. But I haven’t tried the Larger Than Life glosses…

        Karen, I’m loving Autumn Leaves on you!!!

      • chris says:

        I hate the smell of Sandpaper (Sandpiper?). Lovely colour. Rarely wear it because of the scent. Oddly, the much less beloved Turkish Delight does not seem to have the smell?

  2. I really like the lip colors and the blush, the shadows would just look too pale and ashy on me!

    HI Karen, I can’t wait, These look gorgeous.I love the eye makeup you have in your photos; which products did you use for your eyes?

  4. God Karen–how is it that EVERY. SINGLE. SHADE. in this collection looks *PERFECT* on you? It’s like the collection was made for you–I’m so serious right now. Jealous!

      Hi Becca,

      LOL, I dunno…the other day I tried on this pale, silvery shade just for fun and it looked pretty weird.

      Hope you’re having a nice day so far. πŸ™‚

  5. You just created MAJOR lemmings here, MAJOR! I hope this collection is already in Taipei when I’m there, but if not I’ll have to wait for a while before I can purchase it online. SO MUCH PRETTINESS!!!

  7. Gorgeous!! I love the looks you’ve created with these products, Karen — and the products themselves, of course πŸ˜‰

    Everything just looks so stunning, especially those blushers! I’m not terribly excited about the cheek palette (gold highlighters & I have never gotten along), but Outlaw and Undress Me look absolutely breathtaking.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Rae,

      Both of those are super cool. Undress Me even has this little silver flecks of glitter… so cute!

      I hope you give the eye makeup a try. I think that trio would look fierce on you.

  8. Agata says:

    Wow, all the products look amazing. I really want the blush palette, can’t wait for your review. And the eyeshadow trio looks really pretty too.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Agata,

      How are you? I hope you’re doing well!

      Random coffee talk: I’ve discovered that I’m not a big fan of arabica beans. I accidentally picked up a bag of arabica coffee last weekend… it’s so rich and almost smokey! I need mellow coffee, LOL!

      • Agata says:

        Yes, Arabica and Columbia coffee beans are the strongest, which I actually like. I think you’d like the Starbucks Blonde roast, it’s pretty mellow but yet delicious.

        I have been doing ok, less work than usual because my work is doing some system upgrades and not working makes me kinda depressed…My husband says I am a workaholic,lol.

  9. We need a new expression; an armful of color πŸ™‚

    I really like the look you’ve created, so gorgeous.

  10. Teri says:

    Gosh I love this collection, especially the blush and the lip products! So vampy and appropiate for fall!

  11. Ruchita says:

    Wow, gorgeous! I’m really digging this collection.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ruchita,

      It’s beautiful, isn’t it? What do you think of the mix of cool-toned eye colors with the warm lip shades? I’m digging it!

  12. Thank you for the swatches Karen! I wasn’t that impressed seeing stock pics but your swatches are amazing and now I want a lot of this collection. The nail color is gorgeous as is Outlaw blush and the Vent Glace eye shadow duo. Thanks a lot, Karen! LOL

    P.S.-What is on your eyes?

      Hi Cindy!

      You’re welcome. πŸ™‚ I’m glad you’re loving this collection!

      On my eyes I’m wearing the Chanel Montiagne palette. I’ll have a review up in a few.

  13. Jen B says:

    Those lip products look amazing! I want them all…my wallet is already crying.

  14. Rads says:

    Awesssssommmmessss…want..need..must have..:D

  15. Chris25 says:

    Dear Francois Nars,

    Please stop releasing such fabulous collections. I am going broke because I buy so many of your great products.

    The Rouge Tribal lipgloss looks stunning on you, especially paired with this gray eye look! Totally my kind of color and I know it will hard to resist…

    I’m curious about the Vent Glacé duo. In the pan, these look EXACTLY like a duo by Essence that I own, which unfortunately performs poorly.

    Those look great on you! Now I know which lippies will work and which won’t.

  18. Marian says:

    I love this collection! It sure looks great on you!

  19. Katherine G says:

    You can really sell the Nars line. It all looks amazing on you, especially the Autumn Leaves lipstick and Storm Bird nail polish. I think the Storm Bird nail polish is calling my name – I have a Nars nail polish in Orgasm and it holds up really well to chips (I only paint my toes, and I have to keep my toes painted at all times so I’m always looking at new polishes to try out.).

  20. Angel says:

    I’m really loving this collection! I already ordered the cheek palette so I am super excited for it to arrive! But first I need to arrive home first haha!

    I can’t wait to get my hands on outlaw! I think I am a little crazy about NARS blushes, I will never finish them, but I want to get my hands on all the ones they have!

    And the lip products! I. Want. Them. ALLLLL!

  21. Sarah Sams says:

    You just made my night! I’ve been waiting for swatches of these! The polish and velvet gloss pencil are definitely on my shopping list for fall!

  22. Alicia says:

    I am in love with the blush and lip products…..I think the eyeshadows may look chalky on me although we do share a similar coloring. I am lemming for Nars!

  23. Irene Christine says:

    These Nars blushes are killing me. They are gorgeous! I need the Foreplay palette! How do you like the Multiple? I feel it’s too light for me :/

  24. Crystal says:

    That blush is gonna have to come home with me, beautiful!

    The Cheek Palette is such a nifty idea. I ordered the one that came out @ Nordies but I want this one too. πŸ™‚

  29. Kim says:

    Ooh, I really like that blush palette! I can see several spots of pan on my Orgasm and was just thinking about getting a new one. But now, I’m excited about this. Thanks, Karen! πŸ™‚

  30. Nadege says:

    Rouge Tribal is so gorgeous on you!!

  31. Emily says:

    Omg I feel like Ive been waiting for this collection to come out for such a long time! So freking excite. The Amsterdam matt lipstick looks amazing on you, but I just wanted to ask, is it any similar to MACs Diva?

  32. Eleanor says:

    Wow, LOVE those purple ESs! Can’t wait to pick them up. πŸ™‚

  33. Sarah S. says:

    The lipgloss is totally stunning on you, Karen! Now I want it!

  34. Katrina says:

    Ooooouuuu……that last swatch looks like you’ve been hanging with a vampire though lol

  35. musical says:

    Love the cheek palette and the blush! The lipgloss looks really good in the tube, but doesn’t look like it applies even :(. The gloss pencil is the exact opposite! Looks really cute on you!

  36. Annaham says:

    Wow, Autumn Leaves is GORGEOUS on you.

  37. Leona says:

    Where can I find the Nars Amsterdam? I went to Sephora and Nordstroms with no luck!
