With magazines and blogs awash with previews of upcoming holiday collections (I’m looking at you Chanel and NARS) it be wise to be prudent with the hauls in anticipation of a big spend in a couple of months time. But one could be forgiven for letting a collection slip through especially when it’s NARS coming out with a new range of eye paints – creamy colours of pigmented goodness that double as eye liner or cream eye shadow.

There are 10 colours available and the standouts for me were Black Valley and Mesopotamia (matte black and brown), Snake Eyes and Ubangi (black based shimmers in emerald and navy) and the shimmery gold Iskandar for the silly season. I went home with Snake Eyes and Iskandar but Ubangi and Mesopotamia are next on my list!

Here’s Snake Eyes swatched with other shimmery emeralds (L-R):

  • MAC Powerglide Intense liner in Black Line (this has more black and less blue)
  • Bobbi Brown gel liner in Ivy Shimmer (darker and less shimmer)

And if you’re wondering, no that black smudge is not dirt and smog from the London underground – it’s actually NARS Night Clubbing eye shadow.  As you can see it’s quite rubbish on its own but worn over a black base the green shimmer does make an appearance.

They’re out now exclusive to Selfridges at £18.50 each.  They should be available on the NARS website soon but in the meantime check out their Get the Look video for Mesopotamia and Mozambique.
