In my previous NARSHoliday 2014 post (here) I mentioned my wishlist was extensive - I already posted about the nail polishes I picked up back in November. Now it's time to share the rest of my NARS Holiday Haul!

NARS Holiday 2014 Makeup Collection Review Swatches

I said when I reviewed Canberra Hardwired Eyeshadow that I absolutely needed the other two shades in this collection. Gabon and Opal Coast round out the trio and are just as beautiful as Canberra!

Gabon Hardwired Eyeshadow is a blackened khaki loaded up with gold.

Opal Coast Hardwired Eyeshadow is an iridescent white - it almost reminds me of a spiderweb in the sunlight!

Next I definitely needed to pick up the blush and a gloss from the collection. The blush was easy to choose, since it was the only one available ;)

Almeria Blush is with a deep rose with a semi-matte finish. SO pigmented.

Soleil D'Orient Lip Gloss is a pink champagne that looks more opaque on the lips that you'd imagine it would be, but maybe that's the heavy shimmer talking. Regardless I didn't think it would be so beautiful on but it blew me away!

I must say, I wish I'd have picked up the other lip products - particularly Corsica Lip Gloss. Everything from this collection was just so gorgeous.. it was really hard to make a decision!

Below I'm wearing (over UDPP) NARS Gabon all over the lid and through the crease. NARS Opal Coast at the inner corners as well as to blend out the crease. The eyeliner is Urban Decay Black Velvet 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil and the mascara is Milani Total Lash Cover. NARS Almeria Blush is on my cheek and NARS Soleil D'Orient Lip Gloss is the only thing on my lips.
