NARS Summer 2014 Adult Swim products

This just in:  NARS Summer 2014 Adult Swim Collection is smokin’ hot.  A major wave of inspiration washed over me when these beauties landed on my desk and the wheels haven’t stopped turning.

NARS Lost Coast Eyeshadow Duo productLost Coast

On the softer side of things we find Lost Coast Eyeshadow Duo.  The pewter and lilac combo is reminiscent of Kauai from spring.  Neither side of Lost Coast is near as high shine though and the shades lend themselves to being more every day.

NARS Malacca Eyeshadow Single productMalacca

Malacca Single Eyeshadow is quite the stunner.  As of now it is my favorite item from the collection, but I don’t have Baalbek Eye Paint yet…and you all know what a fan I am of the Eye Paints.  Malacca is an iridescent emerald-teal hybrid with a bronze base.

I’ve been a fan of Wonder’s juicy orange with pink and gold reflects and am very happy to see it repromoted (pictured is the old packaging and formula).  And while Turkish Delight was something I questioned for a long time with my skin tone, the creamy pink is really growing on me.  It wears exceptionally well over lipstick when placed at the center of my lips for a fuller pout.

I need a smoky eye with Malacca stat.  And Lost Coast’s Pewter all over the lid with the lilac under the lower lashline next (it makes a killer inner corner highlight, FYI).  Then there’s Baalbek to consider when I get my hands on it.  Speaking of Eye Paint, I’m wearing Snake Eyes (review) at my upper lashes above.  Perfection!

What will you be getting from NARS Adult Swim?


Price:  Lost Coast Eyeshadow Duo $34.00 / Malacca Single Eyeshadow $24.00 / Lip Glosses $26.00 each

Availability: NARS boutiques and

Summary: Lost Coast and Malacca eyeshadows are smooth and fallout-free.  All three shades are highly pigmented yet lend themselves to being built up in intensity.  The new NARS lip gloss formula stays in place and manages to improve the texture of my lips.  Nothing drying about it!  The packaging re-do holds less product, but is much more sophisticated and the wand offers precision application.

    I must have Malacca and that cream liner/shadow goody, not shown here….

    • Alison M

      I bet they will both be stunning on you!

  • Natalie

    I am so excited about this collection! I want all the shadows and the eye paint. Those eye paints are just amazing, and the bronze color in this collection looks gorgeous. I can’t wait till you get it and review it!

    • Alison M

      Do you have any of the other eye paints? I agree. Amazing!

  • Mina

    I don’t know if you got my last comment, but your resemblance to Asia Argento is uncanny.

    • Alison M

      I’ve never gotten that one before. Normally it’s Rachael Leigh Cook. But I do see a resemblance to Asia :)

    I know the struggle of Turkish Delight, lol! On my bare lips, it looks 8 shades of wrong, but it does work well over lipsticks. Malacca looks INCREDIBLE. I have been counting down the days until this collection is available because I’m going to raid it like the lost arc (and pick up a replacement tube of my ride-or-die lipgloss shade Risky Business)! :)

    • Alison M

      I have a couple new glosses in…you’ll love the repackage and reformulation!

      • Kristen / Glambunctious

        Risky Business and Salamanca made their way into my cart this evening! Cannot wait to try the reformulated glosses! :D Beaming!

    That Malacca looks almost exactly like my favorite MAC eyeshadow “Club!” You nailed the hybrid shades of it to a T! Turkish Delight is one of my fave lip glosses and has been for a loong time! All of this collection looks brilliant.

    • Alison M

      For a fall collection lover, I’m more than impressed with spring and summer from NARS. Malacca is very similar to MAC Club and Too Faced Petals to the Metal (<—I own this one). Malacca is more teal than Club, but pretty close. And TF's has more red in the brown and blue in the teal. The general color combo is a favorite of mine!
