I recently started to get back into NARS and just saw some of the Nars fall items on Nordstrom.com so I used their online-order-instore-pickup feature to purchase a few items. Pictures of what I picked up:
NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Silk Road (very similar to the Nars Duos in All About Eve and Alhambra, at first glance this looks a tad peachier and slightly less pale):

NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Brumes:
Eyeshadow Single in Mekong – haven’t tested this yet, but the Nars rep at Nordstrom said it’s like their Night Series eyeshadows:

Nail Polish in Tokaido Express:

I didn’t stop by the Nars counter to check out the Fast Ride Lipstick or Indian Summer Eyeshadow Duo since I simply picked up my goodies at customer service, but over the phone the SA described Fast Ride as a deep plum red and Indian Summer as mustard yellow.
There have been some details on more duos floating around the web for three more duos that I didn’t see online yet, Brousse, Eurydice and Taiga – so I called the counter to inquire about those three. The Nars rep at Nordstrom said they hadn’t received those yet, but that they will probably come out later in the fall and put me on his call list saying he would let me know when he found out more details. As of yet, they didn’t have testers and also that they were only pre-selling the Fall items for their anniversary sale. Luckily I had placed the order online before hand so I was able to pick up my items today.
But overall I have enough goodies to keep me happy for a long time!
