NARS Douce France Trio Eyeshadow Swatches, Review, and EOTD - Spring 2012

Keeping with the pretty in pastel pink trend for Spring 2012 NARS has released their sixth Trio Eyeshadow!

Douce France is my first NARS Trio Eyeshadow.  I remember when the first (Okinawa 2010) and second (Calanque 2011) ones released, all of the shades were linked together in the same pan.  While this was beautiful to look at, my OCD went... NOOOOO!  Thankfully, when the next released, they were all three in separate pans, and it's been that way since.  Huzzuh! 






Douce France Trio Eyeshadow ($45.00) has three shades - a shimmery icy pink, shimmery rose-petal pink, and matte deep rose.  The shimmery icy pink was smooth and satiny, not as shimmery as you'd expect, especially when the word "icy" is involved.  The shimmery rose-petal pink wasn't easy to get pigment from, but it popped well when built up and blended easily onto the eye lid.  The matte deep rose is the most divine matte shadow that I've ever tried.  Extremely pigmented and buttery, this raspberry red hue is a fave of mine for this Spring season.

For the EOTD using this Trio I put the shimmery icy pink all over from lash line to brow, the shimmery rose-petal pink on the lid, and the matte deep rose on the crease and outer V.  For the first picture I used the matte deep rose wet as a liner, but thought it made my eyes look too sickly, so for the second shot I traced over that with Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Uzi.  For the mascara I used Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara.

So pretty in the pan but I'm afraid to add any more natural-toned pinks there! I have to go neon haha ;)

So pretty! But I can never wear pink eyeshadows. Even if I do, I have to add tons of darker colours to add dimension. Pinks make my eyes look especially swollen.

Great colors, but I would´t wear them together -
I´m not bold enough.
