NARS - Night Time Swatches

These were taken this evening, day time swatches up tomorrow!

From top to bottom:
Deep Throat blush - A warm, shimmery pink with gold, but more emphasis on the pink.
Laguna bronzer - A deep bronzer colour, ideal for contouring (My swatch wasn't that heavy).
Orgasm blush - Pink with lots of tiny gold flecks shot through it, giving it a golden sheen. Because of this, it looks like a peach-pink when not closely inspected.
Super Orgasm blush - A similar pink to 'Orgasm', but more pigmented. It has sparse, large golden flecks, making the overall look of the blush quite different to 'Orgasm' in that it does not look like a peach-pink.

From left to right:
Edie - A sheer but buildable cream colour with tiny silver flecks. I love this one! These shadows are so smooth and really easy to blend out.
Mekong - A very pigmented deep espresso brown with lots of tiny warm brown flecks running through.
Cordura duo - Highly pigmented neutrals that complement each other perfectly. One is a medium toned shimmering warm brown, and the other is a shimmering dark brown.

These are my other NARS swatches, plus swatches from other products I've been really impressed with lately.
From left to right:
NARS lipgloss in Crepuscule
NARS lipgloss in Orgasm
NARS nail polish in Orgasm
NYX soft matte lip cream in Tokyo
NYX soft matte lip cream in Antwerp
NYX soft matte lip cream in Addis Ababa (I will write a review on these very soon!)
OCC lip tar in RX

NYX soft matte lip creams, OCC lip tar & Illamasqua Skin Base foundation in shade 02

My NARS eyeshadows came in the post today... I got Edie & Mekong singles, and the Cordura duo - they are silky smooth and just beautiful, swatches and pics soon. I was waiting for these to arrive so I can do the same with the other NARS products I got last week. =) I'll admit I did go a bit mad on NARS, but being broke for a week or so is worth it xD

FOTD/ 1.7.11

Here is a rather dramatic look I did tonight...
For eye shadow, I used Sleek's the iridescent cream colour from the avoir la peche palette (not sure what it's called) all over the lid.
Next I applied MAC's 'Embark' through the crease.
Finally, I applied a little bit of Urban Decay's 'Dark Horse' from the 'Naked' palette to my outer V to deepen the look.
I then used the NARS 'Laguna' bronzer and 'Deep Throat' blush (quite heavily I might add! =D).
Finally, I lined my lips with 'Whiskey' eye liner from Urban Decay, and applied the 'Crepuscule' gloss by NARS over the top.
