NARS Laced with Edge Holiday colour collection : Photos, Swatches & a suggested look

If glitzy, glamourous makeup isn’t your preferred holiday look, here’s a post for you! My take on NARS Holiday 2014.

NARS Holiday 2014 review

starting with todays menu,

Opal Coast Eyeshadow single

Ukraine Blush

Corsica Lip Gloss

Femme Fleur Lipstick

Algonquin Nail Polish

NARS Opal Coast swatch

First up, Opal Coast. A beautiful, frosty white which swatches smooth and evenly.

NARS Holiday 2014 swatches

Ukraine is a reddned, cranberry brown in a satin finish.

Femme Fleur is a warm medium, shimmery brown with a copper tone.

NARS Femme Fleur lipstick

Corsica is a rose brown gloss with a satin finish.

Now onto a look created with this collection, something I believe would look beautiful paired with a white or ivory dress.

For the eyes I started off with a neutral shimmery nude base and then added Opal coast on top as a shimmer coat. As you can see I concentrated the colour towards the center of the lid. I then added the same shimmery nude to the tear duct for an intense inner eye highlight to make the eyes pop.

For lips I used Corsica by itself. No lip liner or lipstick beneath. Following with the blusher and some Kevyn Aucoin highlighter on the high points of my face to catch the light and add some dimension.

Overall thoughts

I believe the lipsticks and glosses from this collection were particularly good. Specially the red one Deadly Catch which I swatched in store and of course Corsica which is now permanently in my makeup bag.

I also loved the quality of the blush. Well pigmented, soft & blendable which was very much worth the price. Overall the collection is rather nice to own, specially with it’s limited edition packaging which is always something special.

Other info

The NARS Holiday collection is already available at Tangs beauty department as well as Robinsons.

    1. I know! I was so confused too! I ended up thinking it was Almeria as well.. But judging from swatches I think they actually are the same:-) funny that my press release just says the blush is Ukraine as is the label at the back O.O

  1. Oh gosh you look so beautiful!! I think this was the first year I haven’t bought any NARS holiday collections, although in the UK I did pick up three more blush and 2 eyeshadow duos. I am dying to get my hands on the NARS dual intensity palette too!
