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!
