It's an understatement to say I look forward to NARS's releases each season. After studying up
on the NARS Summer 2012 promotional images, I knew my favorite piece was going to be the NARS Ramatuelle eyeshadow trio. Although NARS has released trios since Holiday 2010, Ramatuelle is my first NARS trio. I'm excited to share my NARS Ramatuelle review and swatches with you today!
Ramatuelle is a seaside village in southeat France. From Jessica's and Danielle's posts, it was easy to see where the color inspiration was drawn from! That said, before I knew Ramatuelle's name and inspiration, I had invented a very different sort of imagery in my mind from the American Southwest.

I gathered a few colors from my collection to do comparison swatches for NARS Ramatuelle. You can really see the blue tones in the silver when it is compared to Urban Decay Verve. The pale sunny beige of Ramatuelle is more beige and less yellow than Urban Decay Bootycall. It is much paler than Bobbi Brown's Nude Beach eyeshadow. The terracotta color in Ramatuelle is more peach and slightly less intense than MAC Rule.
Thanks for reading! Has Ramatuelle made it into your collection already? Would you wear an orange like this? What is your favorite item from NARS Summer 2012? What kind of places or inspirations does this color bring to your mind?
