NARS spring is here, almost. the collection will be live on narscosmetics.com tomorrow, 1/15/13. the collection draws it's inspiration my high school years, the 1990s, when i first discovering my relationship with makeup. these colors bring me back.
i've gotten my hands on a couple of pieces early - the corcavado soft touch shadow pencil and cythere velvet gloss pencil - or as i now call them, the gold pencil duo.
- corcavado soft touch shadow pencil is described as a "24 karat gold" -- and it is. it looks like straight indian gold, the rich yellowy gold. it's like a trip to jackson heights for the eyes. it's also limited edition. $24.
- cythere velvet gloss pencil is being called a soft metallic rose -- i know rose gold when i see it! this frosty metallic pencil is a great layering on top of lipstick, and actually makes for a cute, soft eyeliner shade as well. $24.
