The new duo from the collection is Kuala Lumpur (sorry there was an earlier typo), a pink with gold shimmer and a plum with gold shimmer. I was afraid the flecks would be too big but they are very subtle in this duo.

One item that I new I had to get from the promo pics was the Purple Rain polish, a gorgeous dark shimmery purple. The color is lovely, dark but still shimmery and recognizable as purple rather than black. The formula was a bit thick for me though. There was a polish called Soho in the Nars Hearts New York kit which is similar but more violet in color and not as shimmery.
I'm glad I made a stop at the Nars counter at saks. Do give this collection a try if you're in the mood for some soft neutrals like I was or if you're in the mood for some stronger colors there are items for you too such as the Purple Rain polish, the Bains Douches glitter pencil (bright sky blue with silver glitter) and lip gloss in Easy Lover (bright pink).
wah!! me too at first the promo nars pictures didn't impress me much, but with your pictures...TOTALLY CHANGED MY MIND!! Kuala Lampur looks amazing! and cruising also....so tempted to get them now
Cruising + Ophelia = love!!!
The purple nail polish actually looks a lot like Let's groove from China Glaze, which has a user-friendly formula by the way. But the nars bottle is prettier for sure.
I liked the rose gold (the lighter) color from the duo a lot...but I am not sure hw will the other plumy/burgundy color work on me...
GASP! purple rainnnn!! i want :<
very pretty haul :D the eyeshadow combo looks great!
OooH! Luscious lips ya got, Jenn! xD The Nars duo is mighty fine too! :D
Pretty lippie and nails!
love cruising!how was the easy lover lipgloss?
@ Belle du Jour Easy lover was a semi-opaque punchy type of pink. I would have picked it up too but I've been into more pale lip colors recently.
