Ramatuelle is a NARS trio that came out as part of their Summer 2013 collection, if I’m not mistaken. I think it was my first NARS eye product purchase, and it was the only eyeshadow I thought to bring on a month-long trip to Europe… for some reason. Anyway!
It has three colors: “silver, icy peach, apricot,” and it is something that is way cooler than I would normally have chosen, if I knew then what I know now. Luckily, I bought it blindly, because I am pretty in love with it.
It’s a very unassuming trio with such a soft selection of colors. The lighter two, which are a satin and a shimmer, look pretty close to each other and don’t offer a lot of contrast. However, I am so impressed by how the cool and warm tones complement each other in a way that you wouldn’t expect.
It’s inspired by Ramatuelle, a city in the South of France. Eugenia from Ommorphia Beauty Bar talks more about that here. I love how François Nars translates these places into his collections. He is amazing.
I wore it here in a pretty standard way, with the icy peach on the inner corners, followed by the silver, then the matte apricot shade in the outer corners. There are surprisingly a lot of different tutorials and ways of wearing this eyeshadow trio online. It’s actually pretty amazing to see how many combinations people have come up with.
Although all of the shades are nice, I think the matte apricot is what really makes this trio.
It’s limited edition, though you can still find it online, and probably in some select NARS counters as these aren’t really hot ticket items, if you know what I mean.
