NARS Eye-Opening Act Collection Spring 2015 – St.Lucia Multiple and Inoubliable Coup d’Oeil Eyeshadow Palette


NARS Eye-Opening Act Collection Spring 2015 is limited edition and at the moment Nordstrom exclusive. It includes brand new Matte velvet shadow sticks as well as two new eyeshadow palettes and one multiple. 

This is not NARS’ regular spring collection, it’s more of a in between mini collection.  I was drawn to both eyeshadow palettes but I only purchased the cooler toned one –  Inoubliable Coup d’Oeil . Even though I usually gravitate towards warmer toned colors other palette has a lot of eyeshadows that I already have so I decided to pass.

St.Lucia Multiple  (39$) is a sheer golden rose champagne. It is such a flattering color for any skin color – on lighter skin this could be used as a blush on medium and darker skin as a highlighter.. Gives just a right amount of warmth and pop of champagne shimmer. This could also be great base for some other pinky peach blushes. NARS multiples can be used on your eyes , lips, face, body… They are light cream to powder formula that I most love  applying and blending just with fingers. It’s your easy 5 minute makeup item. I know with multiples women either love or hate it. I think they are better for normal and dry skin.

NARS Inoubliable Coup D’Oeil Eyeshadow Palette $48

Dalliance Eyeshadow – Dusty lilac stone
Pyla Eyeshadow – Smokey hunter green
Sidi Bou Saïd – Blackened grape
Pandora Duo Eyeshadow (left side) – Sheer white shimmer
Luberon – Iridescent sand with rose gold sheen
Pandora Duo Eyeshadow (right side) – Matte black

This palette has 4 brand new shades and two that are permanent – Pandora duo. Since I do not have Pandora I didn’t mind.  Palette is cooler toned but very soft and great for everyday quick makeup routine. (can you tell I am all about easy effortless quick makeup looks?)

I’ve read some complains that darker matte shades are chalky and hard to work with. I have to disagree and tell you that the darker shades are really impressive in this palette – very pigmented, soft and easy to blend. Lighter ones do require some color building but as they are meant for highlighting and softer kind of a look I do not mind.

NARS nailed it again. I haven’t been excited about most of the collections that came out recently and I am so glad NARS came out with this mini collection. Both items are great choice for me and will get a lot of use from them. Excited about regular NARS spring collection as well – I have my eye on the Reckless blush. 
Not to forget to mention NARS used Tilda Swinton as the face of this campaign.
I can’t really say that I like her acting or her appearance but I have to admit this is a bold move from Mr NARS as always… I respect that.
