Swatch Saturday: NARS Ashes to Ashes

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 17 - 2010

One of my favourites, it’s a sheer… which meant that I didn’t like it for about a week when I got it.  Until I discovered how easily it layered… and THEN discovered how easily I could use it as a crease colour without giving myself Panda eyes!

A cool toned violet/brown taupe with a hint of shimmer.  Urgh, even just describing it makes me wanna take it out and wear it right now (it’s 2am and I’ve washed my face already).

It’s my versatile friend that makes it possible for me to do subtle smoky daytime looks.  Without it, I’d be screwed.  I’m not being melodramatic, stop looking at me like that.

Thanks Francois, you’re the best.  No, really.

    I have taupe envy 🙁 Stop being a taupe teese Mr Nars! Love it x

  2. I have been wearing this a lot lately too! My new favorite combo is this all over the lid with MAC Smut on the lashline and outer V. Lovely!!

  3. Oh dear you said the magic words ‘a cool toned violet/brown taupe’ and now I want it!

  4. Ah yes, one of my favorite tops of all time (if not my very favorite). So versatile, so lovely, and so pretty in the crease or (as my lazy self likes to do) as an all-over wash. 🙂

  5. Tops?? Gah! Taupes.

  6. (Although I would like to own a top in this color…maybe a turtleneck? Would be pretty!). 🙂
