NARS Fall 2012 Color Collection features a blend of bold, modern shades and celestial shimmers. I went with the celestial shimmers.
Vent Glacé ($34), French for “icy wind,” is the name of the intriguing Duo Eyeshadow in the collection, which features a "stormy combination of platinum and silver smoke." It looked like my kind of eyeshadow duo, and I hoped that I'd like the look when I ordered it without seeing swatches anywhere.
I absolutely adore Vent Glacé! NARS hit the ball of the park with these shimmering shades. Silver and the lightest sage green complement each other beautifully, and the shades adhere perfectly to my eyelids. Not only that, they apply evenly with no undue effort (perhaps NARS fixed the texture issues they had last year).
Rosemary, my sweet reader, you were looking for a silver shadow. Will this one work for you?
By now, I'm sure at least a few of you have purchased this beautiful duo. How do you like it? If you haven't had time to check it out, you can find it at the NARS Web site, where shipping is free on any order. For some reason, the NARS counters closed at regional Neiman Marcus stores, so online shopping will become even more important for me.
