The NARS Fall Color Collection for 2012 features jewel tones, shimmery pale shades and glowing silvery pink. Not to mention a gorgeous deep grey creme…More on that later.
There are two eyeshadow compacts being offered this fall an they are: High Society Trio Eyeshadow and Vent Glace Duo Eyeshadow.
High Society Trio Eyeshadow has two purples and a green shade. Vent Glace Duo Eyeshadow contains two icy shimmery shades.
High Society, Vent Glace
Vent Glace, High Society (over primer)
Vent Glace features two fairly pale and frosty shades. The first is an icy silver/white. Nice pigmentation. The second is a smoky grey/silver shade. Pigmentation on this one was a bit lighter, harder to come by. They felt medium/soft (not super soft) and overall are nice shades, especially if you are looking for something subtle.
High Society features a pale lavender, a deep matte green and an amethyst shimmer. The lavender shade is fairly light and had just ok pigmentation. The forest green is a matte and was a wee bit chalky and hard to get even. The amethyst is the nicest one in terms of pigmentation. As far as texture of these, they didn’t feel as nice as one would hope for from NARS shadows. I would prefer a more velvety feel.
Overall: I had really hoped to be blown away by High Society especially, but felt it was just ok. I wish the colors had been more saturated and the shadows were softer. Vent Glace is nice, but perhaps nothing that exciting or unique.
Pricing: High Society ($45 for 0.17 oz), Vent Glace ($34 for 0.14 oz.)
What do you think about High Society and Vent Glace? Are these compacts you would purchase?
