I am way not on the ball when it comes to NARS Spring – so unlike me! Their launches are usually among the ones that I am most excited for probably because it is always so darn good. And somehow I didn’t get this up until today – a couple weeks after it hit shelves.
If it was even possible, I am drawn more towards neutrals as the years go on and Spring 2015 is all about nudes – but not neutral – a more daring subtle color palette. Something in my wheelhouse but just a slight twist – I like it.
Tilda Swinton is featured in the collection’s photos designed by François Nars to “expose a new natural state”. Look for pink shimmer on cheeks, barely there eye shadow and deep neutrals. The shades pictured above (from left to right):
- Liguria Lipstick – Nude caramel
- Porto Venere Eye Paint – Soft pale pink
- St-Paul-De-Vence Duo Eyeshadow – (L) Shimmering nectarine (R) Chestnut
- Valhalla Single Eyeshadow – Soft shimmering pink peach
- Guyane Lip Gloss – Seashell pink
- Vent Salé Lip Gloss – Silver highlight (to be used on top of a deeper shade in the middle of the pout)
- Reckless Blush – Sheer pink shimmer
Available now at narscosmetics.com and Sephora.
It is like Hourglass Cosmetics is in my head, just knowing what I have been craving this summer: a shiny, bold and glossy look with staying power. I’m weighed down by my winter thick and matte lipstick in this weather. Recently released from Hourglass is a lip duo that is my new go-to: Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner and Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss, both in Muse, a vibrant orange red with just a hint of pink.
This summer, Hourglass added four new shades of Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner and three new shades of Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss. Just like the original versions, the duo is super long-wear – much appreciated in the humid, sticky Oklahoma summer.
Starting with the liner, I get a creamy and water-resistant base shade. I love the brush on the other end for precise application. Then as a second layer, the shiny and rich Extreme Sheen adds depth of color. Vitamin E provides hydration on my constantly chapped lips. The finish is truly luxury. And I am swooning over the cake batter scent which is surprisingly sophisticated.
I rocked this duo on this week’s TV segment – what do you think?
