I wanted something matte with serious staying power today. NARS Thunderball eyeshadow is always a perfect choice for a grey matte smoke:
Here are a few more swatches:
Rebelle looks like it’s very pigmented in the tube… but goes on a sheer reddish/pinkish/orange. Hard to describe the color. It’s bold, but sheer. Nice for when you just want a pop of color. Not as nice as Sari d’Eau in my opinion.
Canotier is a PERFECT, IDIOT-PROOF NUDE! I can put this on in the car, in the dark… wherever. It’s pretty hard to get wrong. I love it. So sheer, but with a hint of shimmer. Just enough to give your lips a pop. I am getting a backup. I’m not kidding.
Monte Carlo is an unexpected strawbery pink. Really lovely. Perfect alone or with the Chanel Framboise lip liner. I didn’t think I would like this… but I really do. Keeper.
Bonheur is just so pretty! Its a bright, sheer pink. Reminds me a lot of the Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick in Fuchsia… with a better smell. The rose smell is just divine, and really fitting for this color in particular. Love it!
Whew… that’s eight colors so far. I would love to try and swatch (on lips) all 20 (that I can count, including the Neimans and Saks exclusives). We’ll see.
Ciao for now!
