Good evening everyone, I finally had some time to take pictures of these NARS Spring 2013 beauties last week. I am sure many other blogs have gotten these items well covered – nonetheless, I will be sharing some initial thoughts and swatches of them in this entry too.
I had the opportunity to preview this collection before Chinese New Year last month and I must say, I am super impressed with this collection.
I am impressed with the quality and selection of colours. The colours and theme is fun and cheerful and NARS Spring 2013 consists of wearable pinks to bright and electrifying blue and green. The burnt orange eyeshadow is a major turn on for me as well as the blush.
All swatches taken under natural day light, without flash – on dry arm, without primer.
PERSIA Matte Eyeshadow
Excellent colour payoff – texture of this eyeshadow is on the dry side but it’s still nice and smooth when swatched. The colour seems to adhere evenly without being patchy.
MAD MAD WORLD Duo Eyeshadow*
This duo is crazy and yes, I think NARS has named it right – the colours are MAD MAD bright with excellent colour payoff as well, especially the blue.
This blush is either a hit or miss – either you love it or you don’t. Its dirty and dusty plum shade may scare many away but to me, it’s a must-have – a great addition to my collection.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer*
Many have raved about this product and I have not yet heard any negative comments. This concealer is rich and creamy – the pigments are dense and packed. I have only used it once and I am amazed with how little product is needed.
I don’t use much concealer on a day-to-day basis and I don’t have very bad dark circles to conceal. I enjoy using this concealer for spot concealing as well as under the eyes – it does a great job.

I think I may need Bouthan Duo Eyeshadow and Dressed To Kill Satin Lipstick in my life.
And speaking of lipstick, have you seen the new NARS Satin Lip Pencil? Oh my, I can’t wait to check them out once they are available in Singapore. Based on online swatches, I am much in love with Palais Royal, Golshan, Hyde Park, Yu and Rikugien.
