[BEAUTY] Nars Laced with Edge Holiday Collection 2014 ReviewTuesday, December 30, 2014
I only got partial of the full collection.. In case you wonder what are other items in the collection here it is…
This Holiday the year of 2014, François Nars projects a bold new design for the future femme. Decoding the thrill of seduction, this captivating collection exposes a full range of colours and textures with dramatic dimension. Unlike the usual soft touch black finishing, Nars add more characteristic to their packaging with the intricate web of black gloss grips the signature soft-touch packaging.
Now, let’s see what’s in the collection. I will talk in details on the item I have later at the bottom on the review portion.
First up is their new formula Hardwired Lipstick a more creamy yet opaque formula. Hardwired Lipstick fuses cutting-edge pigments with a high-impact, futuristic sheen.
There is also these beautiful shimmering Hardwired Eyeshadows that will add more glam to your eyes this holiday season.. It has the Nars iconic powdered pigments with intense iridescence for a new feminine dimension. I love all three colour and that Gabon, is such a beautiful green and it’s quite easy to work with especially for smoky eye look. Shimmering Lavender is of all my favourite. I just love anything purple, it can’t go far from that colour. However, I did not get that (saving money for it, arghhhh), I got Opal Coast which is also my favourite as it sparkle gracefully on my eyes. Well you know purple is my all time favourite.
Oh how could we miss the glosses? Everyone need some shine this Holiday don’t you? These beautiful glosses is super creamy and opaque colour. For shimmering pink I am not sure if the colour is as opaque though.
Your nails need some glam too.. So these three beautiful colour definitely a must have in your nail polish stash!! Knockout colour, genius formula and high gloss finish, what else could you ask for more?
Blusher is not being left out for sure. This natural, healthy-looking colour will immediately enlivens the complexion. A light application of even the highest-intensity hues delivers a natural-looking flush. It has a silky texture in matte and shimmering shades.
Blusher is in place so we do need some bronzer… The iconic NARS bronzer, Laguna, recoded into a geometric fantasy—logically aligned with a mobile take on the classic Ita brush.
Nars also have some beautiful palette, Laser Cut under this collection….A futuristic vision for eyes, cheeks, and lips in a tech-chic double layer compact.
The Modern Future is the apex of femininity: NARS’ iconic pink tone, Roman Holiday, cloned into a prism of pigments for cheeks, lips, and nails.
Tech Fashion, a seductive shift into a realm of cutting-edge colour. Four megawatt miniatures of Larger Than Life® Lip gloss multiply future chic into polished possibilities.
Transcend. Transform. Transfix. Face your future femme with three iconic NARS Kabuki brushes to sculpt, contour, define—and defy colour conventions.
Let’s start with the eye shadow. I have Opal Coast, an frosty white shade with white and pink shimmer in it. Absolutely love the cutting edge packaging it make finding it on my stack of eyeshadow easy!
I love that this colour can be quite versatile. It can be use as main colour, highlighter or as top coat on top of other eyeshadow colour to add shimmer onto my eyes. The sad thing it that is not smooth and quite chalky and have some fallout… With that price I would really expect minimal fallout. The colour is quite sheer so when use alone the colour is really hard to come out…
Here I am wearing the eyeshadow, you see the colour is so sheer that all I can see is my skin tone..
and here the mua is using it to highlight the inner corner of my eyes it look beautiful!
I have this Hardwired Lipstick in Deadly Catch. It’s a red with blue undertone and a darker red but not too bold. I love how this red can be wearable anytime on the day. The creamy formula is perfect for those with chapped lip as it’s more moisturising. The colour is very opaque even with just one swipe and last for a good 5 hours at least even after eating it’s still intact!
Look at the colour… Such a good payoff isn’t it?
For the lip gloss, it has a creamy texture which I like but not too sticky.. The colour that I have is Corsica a shimmering pink raspberry shade which is good for day or night use. It’s easily apply to my lip and the gloss stay in place. The brush is very soft and the size is just right for my lip.
Here is the swatches of the Opal Coast Eyeshadow, Corsica Lipgloss and Deadly Catch Lipstick.
The last item on my list is this Barents Sea Nail Polish. Absolutely love the colour.. That bold glossy blue is seriously gorgeous. My first encounter wasn’t good because I am not familiar with the brush thus the layer is too thick and cannot dry off well causing bubble forming on my nail…. Second try it was good…. With two coat the colour turn out really stunning.
Still I don’t like the thick and fat brush as it is so hard to paint the edges with this kind of brush…. Also I don’t understand why they make the top cap to be separable ,it makes no purpose.. I prefer it to be attached but make the square smaller as it can be hard to be hold while painting the nails..
I did a tutorial for a holiday look using this Nars Holiday 2014 Laced with Edge collection, do check them out here.
