NARS Loves Miami for holiday 2013 is a new limited edition gift set based on Miami’s top-selling shades.
Now I’ve never been to Miami (only Orlando) but this palette seems really fitting for how I imagine Miami to be. Hot, sultry, exciting, loud and tan. Yes tan. 🙂
The set includes and Eye & Cheek Palette featuring Orgasm Blush, Fathom Eyeshadow, Kalahari Eyeshadow, Daphne Eyeshadow, Cordura Eyeshadow and Laguna Bronzing Powder. It also includes both the Nail Polish and Lip Gloss in Orgasm.
Fathom is a light pink with silver micro-glitter. It had just ok payoff and it’s very pale and somewhat hard to see.
Kalahari is a frosty mauve/brown. Pretty shade and good payoff.
Cordura is a deep brown with gold micro-glitter. Very nice shade, nice payoff.
Daphne is a matte purple. This one just never works for me, it’s always really patchy and dry in texture.
Orgasm Blush is a peachy pink with golden shimmer and one of my favorite blushes of all-time.
Laguna Bronzing Powder is a light brown with gold shimmer. This was really dry feeling and hard to swatch.
Orgasm Lip Gloss is a shimmery peachy pink with gold. So pretty!
Orgasm Nail Polish is the same as the blush and gloss, a peachy pink with golden shimmer. This starts off rather sheer so you may need three coats to cover nails tips completely, like I did. Very pretty, glowing shade though!
Overall: A couple of the eyeshadow shades weren’t that great and the bronzer was SO light. However the other shadows were really nice, and Orgasm Blush is a shade everyone should have. Orgasm Lip Gloss and Nail Polish are also really nice. I’ve actually gone through a whole tube of the gloss, which is rare for me. All the Orgasm shades scream Miami to me!
Availability: Bloomingdale’s Boca Raton, Nordstrom (West Palm Beach Dadeland, Aventura Mall, Boca), Saks Fifth Avenue Bal Harbour.
