If you’ve been hanging around 10amBeauty these last few years, you know that Fall makeup is my favorite. I find it inspiring and saturated with extremes — bold lips + eyes or full on nude.

NARS Fall 2015 look


It’s easy to say that NARS Fall is an annual favorite and I look forward to it like most people look forward to Christmas. (Holiday collections, on the other hand, tend to be full of limited edition and therefore don’t receive much of my attention. Anyone else the same?)

NARS Fall 2015 is a particularly fantastic collection and I was sent some of the items so I can share with you. Then I went and bought some more. Because all the gorgeous.

It is really difficult to choose the stand-outs of the group because I really am in awe of how equally fabulous the products are this year. I am really pleased to see the under-hyped Velvet Shadow Sticks promoted. NARS Eye Paints are awesome and budge proof. The Velvet Shadow Sticks are equally budge proof, but come in pencil/crayon/swipe-on form and have more time to sheer out or blend. I already owned Reykjavik before receiving Goddess and Aigle Noir and I’ve since purchased Oaxaca (such simple makeup day goodness!).

NARS Daul-Intensity eyeshadows are still at the top of my Most Worn list. I am particularly pleased with the green shift in Pasiphae. I’ve swatched it next to eyeshadow single Malacca for comparison. So many brands opt for a turquoise, but this green is especially lovely.

If you missed out on this summer’s vlogger-extraordinaire highlighter release – or just plain weren’t interested because it’s too flashy – you absolutely must check out NARS Tribulation blush. Less frost, more g.l.o.w. Tribulation is not one I would wear on its own as I like a little color to my cheeks, but it is a very believable highlight and shares similarities to NARS Albatross with a slightly different tone.

And in the event you aren’t following me on Instagram, don’t miss Semi Matte VIP Red. Such a beaute! And she seems creamier than other Semi Mattes I own which means easier re-application and less drying. Win win. Also from this collection is a re-promote of Chelsea Girls. What used to be a Lip Lacquer now comes in the form of the amazing NARS gloss. Yep! Purchased.
