Dead of Summer Palette £29
Dual Intensity Blush - Vengeful £30
Well, its love. As per usual, Nars have hit me right in the cupid spot and I'm head over heels with the new Steven Klein collection. In a bit of a whizz, I spent a bit of a fortune at the Nars counter, and in a bit of a daze, just asked the lovely lass working there to show me what she is loving recently (I love being able to do this) and this is what she came up with. She reproduced on me the eye make up that she was wearing that day, and although I don't seem to be able to apply said products with such expertise, I'm pretty happy.
Yes, that is a blush and highlight palette, and I am wearing that bright red shade on my eyes as well as my face. I'll be honest, I was utterly terrified to be introduced to such a shade, but pleased to find that it adds a shade of warmth with the tiniest touch of a brush to the cheeks, and as a halo to the eye crease.
As a devotee to Urban Decays Naked palette, and others around that colour palette, its a bit of a step beyond my comfort zone to venture into a copper and bronze shade, but its a much welcome change. Whilst I'm not sure I'll always love shimmery shades, these super pigmented shades require just a touch of the brush to pick up a good helping of colour.
All of the Steven Klein collection can be used both wet, and dry. To be honest, they're pigmented enough used dry. Whenever I've tried any 'use wet' product, its ended up rendering it useless for dry use, somehow, so I've not dared try it. I do love though, that the eye palette includes an awesome, very intense eyeliner - I'll take that over a useless mini brush any day!
