Just the Right Edge

I could think of one word upon seeing the color story of the NARS Fall 2017 collection.¬†With Bella Hadid fronting the campaign in cool, metallic blue tones – I could only think…¬†edgy. NARS has always had that sexy with a bit of edge, powerful workhorse products. They do the not-so-usual colors (blue, brown, purple) right that only they could make me wear purple lipstick (as seen here) and now, blue mascara. Note, the Velvet Shadow Sticks in Corfu and Dark Angel aren’t part of the Fall 2017 collection.

NARS Hydra is a muted, smoky teal with subtle, warm undertones and a pearl-to-metallic finish. Since it’s a dual intensity eyeshadow, it can be applied dry for a sheer finish and damp for a super pigmented finish.

This is swatched DRY. Can you say WOW?! Such bold pay-off in one swatch!

These Velvet Shadow Sticks are one of the best cream eyeshadow sticks I’ve tried. They have a creamy yet crease-proof formula with a velvety matte finish. It glides smoothly on the lids with no dragging. I am in love.

Corfu is a shimmering taupe while Dark Angel is a chocolate brown.


The two lipsticks from the collection are Audacious Lipsticks in Kirat (the one I’m wearing in the photo above whose name brought out some LULZ from my readers when I posted it on IG) and Aya (wearing it below). Kirat is a deep, bright purple. While Aya is a chocolate brown. Oh NARS, only you talaga can make me wear these deep, vampy colors.

The Looks

On my ears: Keating by Rory & Sloan
Wearing the Hydra Dual Intensity eyeshadow, Sorrento Kohl liner on my upper and lower lids and the Kirat lipstick. Also wore the Minerve blue mascara but the photo won’t pick up my lashes because they weren’t curled up enough. This is such an edgy look for me, but it’s still something I would definitely wear out. Not too avant-garde or costume-y, just the right edgy that’s still wearable (for me, at least). Let me know what you think of the look I created – how would you wear these shades? Let me know below!

Hi Ms Shari, bagay naman sayo ung shade ng lipstick at eyeshadow. Hindi ko talaga keri ang dark lipstick. I like the Velvet shadow stick, lalo na ung Corfu.
