The Nars Spring Collection has a number of pretty items it, but my attention was quickly drawn to two: (1) The Lhasa Eye Shadow, which is a pretty silver grey that is akin to a deep taupe. Being a taupe fan, I wanted to try it,, and (2) The Mexican Rose Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil. I love Nar’s Velvet Pencils and the shade on this one looked gorgeous in photos.
Today I have a swatch of the Lhasa shadow. I’ll put a swatch of the lip pencil up on Girl Gloss. The first thing I noticed with this shadow was the high pigment. Seriously, one swipe and there is all the pigment that you need. If you really want more though, it is buildable and can be applied with a sponge or wet for deeper looks. The swatch below is just a swipe back and forth once with a Q-tip, and that is pretty impressive given that, even with brands known for good pigment, I usually need to do more than that to get a good swatch for photos.
Here is Nars Lhasa with a little bit of distance:
And here is a swatch close up and held up to window light a bit more.
This is seriously a pretty color. If you like taupe, lavenders, or grays, you will want to check this one out!
As a final aside, when I was done with this, I wiped it off with the new Nars Makeup Removing Water, which is one heck of a good product. I’ll have a full review of it sometime in the next week or so.
The collection is available now at NarsCosmetics.com
