I don't have a ton of Nubars, and sometimes I'm not sure why that is. They have great colors, I like the brush, the formula has been good on the ones I've tried. I guess other things have taken priority over my amassing a giant collection of Nubar. But! When I saw this one, which is part of Nubar's spring 2011 collection, I knew I had to have it.
This is one of my favorite light blues. I hesitate to call it a pastel because even though it is light, it also has a brightness to it that makes me think of summer skies. I guess it's halfway between pastel blue and sky blue.
The color isn't the only thing I struggle to describe. You can't really see it in these pics because I really couldn't capture it no matter how hard I tried, but the finish is like a frost... only without the gross frost brush strokes. There's shimmer going on here, but not shimmer as I normally think of it. The finish almost reminds me of a pearl - shimmery, but completely smooth.
The formula is buttery perfection. No dragging or bald spots or other miscellany that makes light blues such a nightmare normally. If you like light blues at all, do yourself a favor and pick this one up. It's just lovely!
