Tzarine: empress of Russia ... Nars Fall 2010
I know, I know, I previously told you Rajasthan was the only appealing duo for me in the Nars Fall collection. Well, I changed my mind, and I had to have Tzarine as well.
The light shade is a slightly peachy champagne, which for once is quite pigmented and makes a great all-over shade.
The darker shade is a very unique blue, that I like to call "stormy" - you know, that greyish blue tint that clouds can take right before a storm?
I don't have any swatches, but I do have a FOTD:
I am wearing Nars Douceur blush. I did darken the outer corner a bit with some Graphology, but other than that all I'm wearing on the eyes is Douceur.
By the way, the mascara I'm wearing is Helena Rubinstein Lash Queen. I hated it at first but after having ripen a bit in my drawer, it does the job much better and makes a nice daytime lenghtening mascara.
