NARS Belle Du Jour Summer Collection Review

So I finally got back to the NARS counter to pick up my goodies... I actually returned the Burn it Blue eyeshadow. As I looked at it again it just didn't wow me. The main blue was a bit sheer and the shimmery blue didn't pack the punch I was looking for.

All in all, I was again disappointed with the seasonal collection. It was pretty but did not have that WOW factor. I really disliked the cream blush. I usually love cream blushes and the color was BEAUTIFUL but the texture was very chunky. I put it on my hand and it looked like I had goosebumps or a rash. That is a no no for me! Oh well, more money in my pocket, however I did take home some gorgeous eye shadows from their normal line (Corfu, Mykonos, Pearl beach and Blondie e/s). I will always have a soft spot in my heart for NARS and love the brand dearly but I wish they would kick it up a notch with the seasonal collections especially one named Belle Du Jour! Bummer!

Will you be checking the Belle Du Jour Collection?


  1. Ah that's too bad! I will check it out but I have a long list of items i want from their normal line including Penny Lane (all thanks to you..again!)


  2. eh the blue didn't speak to me either.. loved the cream eyeshadows in your yt haul vid though. xo

  3. Aw, so sorry about your disappoinment in this collection. Their normal line is amazing though! I even got my first NARS blush in Love Joy! It's so pretty and will try it out sometime soon.

  4. Thanks, I guess now I really dont need anything from this collection ;)

  5. The nail polish looks nice for the summmer...


  6. @ Lipstick- Yeah, you NEED Penny lane, obvioulsy...NEED! x

  7. @fabdiva- What are you waiting for?!?! Try it out today!

  8. @theshannondee- Thank you!

    @Summerbabe- IMO, You can pass!

  9. lol I'm going to try it today I promise!

  10. Bummer, indeed. I did check this out in person. I did like the Burn it Blue when I swatched it on my hand. I guess I really have to try it on next time I'm at the NARS counter. Maybe I can go to the Saks counter and have the SA put it on me. If I like it then I can take advantage of their 10% off beauty/fragrance sale. If not, there's always other colors from the permanent line I've been meaning to pick up!

  11. the nail polish is gorgeous but it looks just like Sally Hansen "Guilty Pleasure"

  12. @lexi- yeah try it out!

    @Kelsey- Thanks for the info!!

  13. I absolutely love NARS, but the past few seasonal "collections" have done nothing for me. I get so excited to go look, and when I do I find them lacking for some reason. Step it up NARS, I love you so! xoxo

  14. I have a few things from Nars and I love them. I will be checking the collection, I really like the model's makeup on the promo picture.
