NARS Night Caller Fall 2014 Color Collection

The NARS Fall 2014 Color Collection has been announced.  It is called the Night Caller.   Not only is there a gorgeous line-up of autumnal products, this dramatic color palette also features the exciting launch of new Night Series Eyeliners.  I don’t have those to share with you but I am so excited to show you the Dolomites Eyeshadow Duo and the blush named Unlawful.

Dolomites is a beautiful neutral eyeshadow duo.  The left side is described as a rosy pink quartz.  My description is a gorgeous warm plummy, pink taupe.  It has a high-shine, metallic finish and is just beautiful all over the lid.  The right side is described as chocolate and I would agree.  To me it looks like a reddish brown and is the perfect shade to compliment and deepen the lighter shade.

The texture of this eyeshadow duo is amazing.  They are soft and buttery.  The left side is perfect while the right side kicks up a good bit of powder, but I didn’t experience fallout when I was putting them on my lid.  They blend easily.  Perfection.

Unlawful blush is a warm amber pink with silver micro-glitters.  It really is love.  There are a lot of those micro-glitters packed in this beautiful blush.  In my swatches you can see them big time but when these are dusted on the cheek the glitters seem to fall away for the most part.  The good thing about these glitters is that when you are using this you don’t actually need a highlighter in addition to the blush.

The swatches on my fingers are both this blush but I felt it was important to show you them side by side because it plays with the light beautifully.  You can see that with the movement of your skin you can catch light and it illuminates the cheek bones.  The texture is really nice too.  Finely milled and very soft.

Overall I think that NARS Night Caller is a beautiful collection full of colors that are perfect for the Fall.  For some reason Autumn shades really excite me.  I think that it is because the summer is so jam-packed with brights that I am ready for comfortable neutrals.  What is it that you love about Fall makeup collections?

NARS Callisto

I am a huge NARS Cosmetics fan.  In case you want to see a list of all my NARS posts just click the link!  When I found out about the fantastic BRAND NEW Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows I leapt for joy.  NARS releases new items all the time but almost never an entirely new formula.  The shade I have for you today is Callisto

“Double-down with the new dual-application formula – apply dry for a sheer, airbrush-like finish with a luminous sheen or apply with a dampened brush for high-impact and intense, opaque color. Twelve ready-to-wear and rebelliously romantic shades transform your look with a riveting range from delicate peach pink to fierce black orchid. This exciting new product is available beginning July 1 at NARS boutiques and on”

NARS Callisto

Callisto is described as an icy, silver pink.  When I am looking at it in the pan I keep trying to call it taupe because of its complexity.  Actually, I think that anytime a color has a silvery sheen running through it I call it taupe…  Yeah…

So I took pictures of it immediately because I was dying to get into this pan and smear it all up!  I just ran my finger over this shade a couple of swipes and I am completely amazed at the HIGH SHINE I got in return.  This is supposed to be Dual-Intensity but with intensity like this dry, I am not sure I will need to apply it wet.  nars callisto swatch

So even though I can tell that this is definitely a silvery pink with mild leanings of tan I still wanted to swatch it next to my favorite taupes of all time.  Just to see how it stacked up.

Compared side by side I see that this one screams pink, but can you see the little glimmer of brown/tan that is shining through?  It is love.  I am in love with NARS Callisto.  Now I just need to get my hands on more of these shades.  I don’t know about you, but I am now off to go and find more shades on their website for me to hoard collect!  And like always, I will have a makeup look coming very soon for you to see!  Again, this are on, Sephora, and other various retailers.

Which shade are you most excited about?

October 2012 Favorites

Wow… this feels like strange territory!  It has been so long since I did a Favorites post… Like June or maybe even further back.  I have been sort of uninspired recently to do favorites because sometimes most of the time it ends up being a lot of the products that I reviewed that month and I hate to reiterate the same points.  This month’s favorites was all about rediscoveries!  I took these photos with my iPhone because my camera’s battery died RIGHT as I went to snap the first picture! Ready? 

For starters I want to mention the color products.  The MAC quad was made by me.  I haven’t been using my MAC eyeshadows much in the last year but they were calling to me.  My all time favorite eyeshadow in the WORLD is Sable and it is the top left.  The other three are Naked Lunch (top right), Smut (bottom left) and Shore Leave which is limited edition from years ago (bottom right).  This combo is GORGEOUS and I accidentally put them together.  I knew I wanted to use the top two in a look together and recently Shore leave has been my GO TO inner corner highlight.  Smut is always a favorite for the outer v and there you have it… History was made!  Favorite custom MAC quad!

A MAC blush that I have always lusted after is Fleur Power.  I acquired it in a swap at the beginning of the month and fell head over heels for it.  It has been on my cheeks for the majority of the month.  I love it.  Pretty bright pink with a TOUCH of coral.  I am pregnant but every time I wear this people tell me I am radiant.  I know it is the blush!!!

I am also loving the Jurlique Citrus Purifying Mist.  I use it after cleansing to give me a nice hydrated feeling.  It smells wonderful and feels amazing on the skin.  A definite favorite from the Jurlique skincare line I am testing and will post about soon.
Billion Dollar Brows automatic pencil is amazing.  I have been using it non-stop since I purchased it.  Seriously–no other product has touched my brows since I opened it’s package.  I reviewed it previously here.
NARS Eyeshadow Base has been a favorite this month.  My hormones have my eyelids going nuts.  Bases that have never allowed creasing (on me) before aren’t working now.  I went through a few different ones and reached for this trusty base and it actually is working.  Thank the lord!  I haven’t given it a full on review yet but here is the haul post that I did when I received it a year and a half ago! WOW, right?
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer in 2-Light has been my most reached for concealer.  I always love it but recently I have been relying on it and it alone to perfect my complexion.  I have tried not to use any foundation because my face has cleared up a great deal and this has really done the trick.  I need to get a  new one pretty soon.  It is about tapped.
I just recently reviewed the Laura Mercier Deluxe Travel Brush Collection and two of my favorite brushes this month came from it.  The Blush Brush is absolute perfection.  I haven’t ever used a paddle shaped blush brush before but it is really great for precision–which I need sometimes because I have big ole cheeks!  When I smile you can see I actually have pretty nice cheek bones but the precision of blush application really helps that stand out.  The other standout brush in this set is the dual-ended Smudge/Flat Eye Liner brush.  These are both full size brushes, they are just dual ended.  The eyeliner brush comes to a perfect thin point and I like that it isn’t angled.  The Smudge side is the real standout though.  I apply inner corner highlight, eyeshadow on the lower lash line AND smudge my eyeliner with it.  It is amazing.  
What are your October 2012 Favorites?  Do any of our favorites match?  Let me know in the comments below!  Also let me know if you would like me to do monthly favorites consistently like I used to!  I enjoy doing them but I sort of stopped at the risk of sounding redundant!
