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.
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.
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!

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.
