Hey guys!!! Here are my promised swatches for the limited edition NARS Vintage collection.


Mash is the standout shade for me.  What a dazzling army green, flecked with gold polish!!!

NARS Full Metal Jacket

Full Metal Jacket isn’t bad either.  A blueish grey.


And for some reason, Zulu did not stand up to the hype.  I mean people were giving up their first born child for this bad boy, and it’s good, but not that good.  Of course I still want it, don’t want to miss out, but…..

NARS Midnight Express

Midnight Express was just mehhh.

NARS King Kong

King Kong is a reddish brown.  Just ok.

That’s all folks! Laters!
