So far, the lipstick (Dressed to Kill) and the blush (Seduction) look most promising.  The eyeshadow (Persia), just as I expected it to be, looks quite interesting.  Cythere (which for some reason is spelled Cytere, without the H, on the NARS website) - I have to figure out some use for it - on it's own this would look terrible on me.

I got these just this morning, so it's only swatches and photos for now - reviews in a bit.  Got to go now - work calling - it's what pays for all this makeup :D  Did you find anything interesting in the NARS Spring 2013 collection - do share!

    1. It does sound like an easy way to use it, doesn't it? Hope it looks nice on me! Now tell me some way to salvage the Cythere lipgloss. I was hoping to use it over a darker lipstick/base..

  2. not sure what the 'bridge of the eye' is (from the jake broullard quote above), but if persia is anything like saffron by mac, try it in/slightly above the crease, with a lighter toned brown or beigey tone on the lid, and lots of black eyeliner....

    1. The "bridge" was a bit of a mystery for me too..I finally decided it must be some fancy word for crease :P :P :D

      Thanks for the suggestion. I am pretty sure that would work great - not sure if it would show up in photos, but I will definitely try it out and update if that works. Anything with lots of black eyeliner is a yayyy for me :D

  4. I bet these are going to look absolutely stunning on you, Rads! I think they're too bright/intense for me but I can totally see you rocking these with your gorgeous skin tone! :D

    1. Some of the shades are quite deep/pigmented...what about the pink duo? I cannot imagine using pink on my eyes..would look like I have some problem with my eyes...but it looks lovely on lighter skins.

  5. Very beautiful colors especially the blush, I could probably use Persia eyeshadow as a blush too :)
