Saturday Surfing (and NARS Holiday 2010 Color Comparisons)

Published in: Just For Fun, Makeup

Good morning and happy Saturday to ya! How was your night? I didn’t do squat, thank you very much. :) But then I never leave the house anymore except to visit Tuttimelon in the middle of the night. I spent the evening on the couch with a bucket of taro root frozen yogurt, watching a Jersey Shore marathon… I don’t know when I turned into a Cathy comic (“Ack!”).

Before we dive into the joys that are Saturdays and surfing, here are comparison swatches of a few pieces from the new NARS Holiday 2010 Collection (with some bits thrown in from fall).

The purple shade in the Melusive Duo versus the Daphne Eyeshadow Single from fall 2010:

The purple shade from Melusine looks a little plummier than the blue-violet Daphne Eyeshadow Single, which also looks sheerer than the purple in Melusine.

Oh, I got a couple of requests to see Bougainville Lip Gloss beside Strawberry Fields from fall 2010…

Both shades sure are pigmented, aren’t they? I dig ‘em both a lot.
