NARS SUMMER COLLECTION 2016 – Under Cover

NARS SUMMER COLLECTION 2016 – Under Cover

NARS will be releasing a 10 piece collection for summer this year (one of the 10 will not be launch in SG though, it is a US market exclusive – and that is one of the Lip Covers in Members Only, aptly named).

The collection is outstanding partly because of the gorgeous packaging, illustrated by LA-based Greek painter Konstantin Kakanias – images of girls on a chic summer cruise/ beach vacation. The collection is summer appropriate with dual intensity blushes and eye colours, as well as limited edition Lip Covers – two nudes and a bright orangey red – the fourth shade, Members Only is a deeper true red.

I find the two blush duos to be very wearable and the formula is better than the existing dual intensity blushes – the new ones in this collection are more powdery and softer, making it easier to pick up the product and apply on your skin.

Two shades – Sexual Contents & Liberation — if you have lighter skin tone, go for Sexual Content, while Liberation would suit those with a deeper skin tone.

The dual intensity shadows are summer appropo – with a periwinkle blue, a teal green, and two neutral shades in a tan brown and shell pink shade.

The Lip Covers are the stars of this collection – they are intense, and sets to a demi-matte finish.  While trying these, I conclude that you need to apply them lightly, and blot off any excess.  The color stays on well, and every shade is stunning. I personally prefer Members Only and Overheated.

 

Stay tuned for this collection to launch in SG this May!  Hope this entry has been helpful and thanks for looking!

The new Nourishing Lip Colour Oil-Infused Shine is Bobbi Brown’s new and modern take on lipsticks.  With a hand-selected blend of five deeply emollient natural oils and Vit C and E, this potent formula leaves lips with a super silky feel and luminous finish.

The hybrid lip colour delivers 24-hour sustained moisturisation, hydration and conditioning with a nutrient-rich formula that works continuously to make lips softer, smoother and plumper – even after it’s taken off.
