The SS collection from NARS is a bit of a mixed bag in my view.

NARS Mad Mad World Swatch

This has to be my favourite – look at that blue! Actually, it’s a nice edit because the green doesn’t fight the blue – if had been at the same intensity I think it could have been quite scary! As it is, you get two straight looks from this palette and any variant in between. I’ll definitely wear the blue as a liner although I’m not brave enough to do a whole lid.. but I would with the green shade. It’s £24.

NARS Bouthan Swatch

Bouthan is pretty, but oh so pale and kicks up a lot of dust. I think these are shades that I already have in my stash and at better intensity, although the gold flecks in the deeper pink are lovely. It’s also £24.

NARS Translucent Crystal Powder

And this is my *Do Not Understand* product. It’s supposed to give your face a gentle, translucent wash of reflecting setting powder. For me, it’s a little bit Emperor’s New Clothes because the effect is so minimal I don’t think anyone would know if you were wearing it or not. Although technically it is clever, feeling very much like a powder, but loaded with glycerin and Vitamin E and being shine regulating, on testing, it didn’t seem in reality to live up to its description.  It’s £25.
