If glitzy, glamourous makeup isn’t your preferred holiday look, here’s a post for you! My take on NARS Holiday 2014.
starting with todays menu,
Opal Coast Eyeshadow single
Corsica Lip Gloss
Femme Fleur Lipstick
Algonquin Nail Polish
First up, Opal Coast. A beautiful, frosty white which swatches smooth and evenly.
Ukraine is a reddned, cranberry brown in a satin finish.
Femme Fleur is a warm medium, shimmery brown with a copper tone.
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.
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.
The NARS Holiday collection is already available at Tangs beauty department as well as Robinsons.

Great post, your makeup looks beautiful. Zoe, zoebeautyblog.com xx
Thank you so much Zoe 🙂
Your makeup looks so beautiful 🙂 good job!
Thank you for the positive feedback! ❤
Oh I don’t see Ukraine blush anywhere here maybe they used different name here is there Almeria there Hun
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
Lovely as always my dear
Thank you so much! Always appreciate reading your comments dear 🙂
Girl, that shimmer on your eyelids made me scroll up twice. These are some amazing products–thank you! I’m heading to sephora for the holidays!
I am happy to hear the post was useful to you! 🙂

Thank you Michelle!
Beautiful as always! Lots of xx💕🌸xx
That blush and gloss are gorgeous! I’ll have to check them out next time I’m at Sephora 🙂
Those two are actually the best of the lot! Specially the gloss I believe is sooo perfect and can be worn throughout seasons.. 🙂
you’re the bomb! that second pic is so MARILYN :*
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!
