The first signs of spring | New 27/01/14 from NARS, YSL, Laura Mercier, and more

Wrapped in gold: YSL Spring & the launch of Tory Burch

The new YSL Gloss Volupté lipglosses are rumoured to be underwhelming — but is that going to stop any of you, dear readers?

New from NARS

Everything before (and including) the pink Adelaide Illuminator is from the NARS Final Cut collection–exclusive to Nordstrom and Holt Renfrew, I believe–and I’m super excited about it.

Everything after the NARSissist Cheek Palette is the NARS Spring 2014 colour collection, which didn’t really grab me — was I the only one? I liked the look of the gold/violet Kauai Eyeshadow Duo, but it just felt really uncoordinated. Let me know your thoughts in the comments, because I’d love to hear them!

P.S. The NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette wasn’t available through this widget, but can be found here.

Spring hues with Laura Mercier and bareMinerals

Rose golds and soft hues. I never really threw myself on the rose gold train with everyone else (though pretty, they’re not the best hue for my skintone), but I’m really excited about the soft, almost desaturated shades we’re seeing for spring. I feel like we’re seeing a mix of soft pinks and peaches juxtaposed against cool-toned fluorescents, which is something I can totally get behind.

I love me a pastel, but give me bridal-appropriate neutrals and tiny pops of intensity any day.

Everything else

MiraCurl/Curl Secret knockoffs, beautiful hues from Lancôme (that Rouge in Love!), and a new finish from those wonderful Sephora singles. Oh! And a skin oils kit from Sephora, plus the relaunch of Calyx under the Clinique name.

The new Guerlain Meteorites are silicone-free, by the way. Just in case you weren’t tempted enough.

  2. i don't know if i've ever told you that i love when you do these posts! :) anyway, i looked at the new nars palette in store today and while it seems nice, it seems overpriced. Is it more expensive for you guys too? i like the look of that spring duo even though violet/gold doesn't seem to make sense as part of the collection to me either lol

  3. Eee! No, I had no idea — that makes me so happy, Joyce.

    I think the new NARS palette is about $90 up here (ouch). At that price — I mean, it's pretty, but I haven't even bothered to look for it in-store. I very rarely wear eyeshadow, and with the amount that most bloggers have already, it just seems kind of unnecessary, you know?

    (Pretty, though :p)
