Nars Week Concludes: The Spring 2009 Collection

Now that my mini-series is over, its time for a pop quiz.
To this beauty blogger, Nars is
A. Amazingly versatile
B. Of exceptional quality & pigmented like woah
C. The ultimate temptation & the death of my wallet
D. Makes me squeal like a piggy
E. All of the above

Easy one right? The answer is E.

Haha, yep. I am definitely still in love with Nars and I am sure my collection will continue to grow (did I mention my birthday is in a month, get hopping people! )

Anyway, I figured the best way to go out with a bang would be to bring you complete swatches of the Spring 2009 collection.

This collection includes:

Eyeshadow duos in Egea (Shimmering minty seafoam and shimmery lilac) and Hula Hula (gilded pink and bronzey beige)
Eyeshadow Singles in Babygirl (A pastel baby pink with chunky sparkles) and Grenadines (a sumptuous matte shade of raspberry). Night Sun was also promoted, and is a golden yellow also with chunky glitter
Lipstick in Shrinagar (sorry, this one wasn't available for swatching but I have it on good authority its a frosty shade of raspberry)
Blush Duo in Hungry Heart- Perfect for highlighting the cheeks, these blushes have a matte base with lots of fine microglitter. One side is a warm gold, the other a cool pink.

The standouts in this collection for me? That would be Grenadines and Hungry Heart. I could totally picture grenadines with a warm golden beige (something like Cyprus) and Hungry Heart as a beautiful sparkling highlight on top of bronzer.

The other items were way too glittery for me. I have always been one to choose matte over glitters. However, I am not ashamed to admit, the Nars artist pointed out something very interesting. She said the chunky glitter is like jewelry for the eyes. Providing you press the shadow on instead of swiping it, I am pretty sure it would create some amazing glittering night looks for an evening out.

Ah well, enough talk. On to the pics:
