The Nars Sarah Moon Color & Gifting Collection launched a few weeks ago and it features a verity of beautiful colors from neutrals to very intense shades for a fall/winter season. I’m thrilled to feature some of the pieces of this collection here to review. The whole collection is beautiful with some individual pieces and some as combo (makes a perfect Holiday gift set). The colors are easy to wear to create a very chic and sophisticated look all year long. Today’s feature includes:
- Give In Take Dual-Intensity Eye & Cheek Palette Exclusive to Sephora
- Thousand Worlds Lip & Nail Set
- Kohliner (Witching Hour & Sichuan)
Up first the Give In Take Dual-Intensity Eye & Cheek Palette limited-edition (C$85/C$250 value) is a Sephora Exclusive eye and cheek palette with gorgeous dual-intensity shades. There are 6 eyeshadow shades that are formulated with the Nars bestselling, dual-intensity formulas that can be worn wet/dry and three beautiful and transformative blushes that complements all skin tones with amazing textures, smooth finish and rich easy to layer pigment. I was impressed with how there is no fall out at all, it carries a long-lasting power especially paired with an eyeshadow primer. I personally love to create Smokey eyes and I find with this palette you can create endless ways to create smokey eyes with warm and cool under tones. Plus you can mix and blend the warm and cool tones easily, as well as the cheek colors are beautifully arranged. Nice and gorgeous highlighter and two blushes with beautiful colors to enhance all skin tones. I was blown away by the quality and shades, it carries perfect colors for eyes and cheeks that I can really wear all the time.
I think Nars Cosmetics never fails on the packaging, the pictured packaging is the main highlight of the collection, it comes with full size mirror and where I love how it makes this palette perfect on the go. here is the full details of what this palette contains:
- 6 x 0.07 oz/ 2.07 mL Eye shadow in I, II, III, IV, V, VI
- 3 x 0.12 oz/ 3.54 mL Blush in I, II, III
Next Thousand Worlds Lip & Nail set is a limited edition duos for lips and nails. This collection contains two mini Audacious Lipsticks in Codie and Eva which dress lips in dramatic berry tones and two Nail Polishes with high gloss and high contrast in La Dame En Noir and La Dame En Blanc. This duo set comes in a beautiful and sleek package. The pieces definitely have a unique take on this Holiday season with Bold red lips and Nails which we all tempt on. This set comes in a very chic looking package where I think it makes it a perfect Holiday gift this year.
For Lips I found both the Codie and Eva both have a holiday and winter vibe, both are from red family but with different under tone. Codie is a red with orange and cooler tone where Eve carries deeper red color with warm tone. Even though in swatches its makes it hard to differ from each other while in the lips it gives a different look.
For nails I’m thrilled that the formula is with high gloss finish. I have been in love with both shades, La Dame En Noir is a very classic burgundy red shade that never get out of trend and lately I’m getting over La Dame En Blanc color which is a very nice nude color, and I think perfect for this winter season. Coverage is perfect with two coats and they do dry out fast which was a plus point for me. If you like a streak free which will require 3 coats to smooth’s it out with a very sheer layer.
Last The Intensifier Kohliner in Witching Hour and Sichuan is a very creamy, concentrated kohliners. I’m definitely will be using these in high use since I love to wear pencil liners than liquid. The formula is buildable and blendable, where if you’re some one like me these Intensifier kohliners will make life easier without concentrating too much on creating the wing.
Witching Hour is a beautiful army color with some golden shimmers and Sichuan comes in matte-black formula which both smokes out lash lines and defines water-line with soft precision. They come in a twist up packaging where there is not sharpening hassle.
Bottom line it is hard for me to describe except “amazing”. The Give In Take Dual-Intensity Eye & Cheek Palette is pretty versatile and every single color is a must with high texture and pigment. And I think this is one of the eyeshadow palettes that can be used the most especially since it carries beautiful every day colors plus perfect highlighter and blushes, I would say it’s a complete set. As well as the Thousand Worlds Lip & Nail set would make a perfect Holiday gift set with beautiful classic colors that any can fall in love with. And if you’re like me with high use in with pencil liner then The Intensifier Kohliner is some thing to consider. It carries a very nice pigment with great lasting power.
