NARS · Powermatte Lip Pigment

 

Just when you thought that the matte liquid lip trend was tapering off, along comes NARS with their Powermatte Lip Pigment — 20 kick-ass & long-wearing shades (2 are exclusive to NARS online) in a revolutionary new formula that is actually … drumroll, please … comfortable to wear. Inspired by the rebellious mood of the rock & roll era (example: Bella Hadid channeling Joan Jett in the promo ad, below), the shades are outrageous in their impact but tempered with a featherweight feel. All this to say that you may as well ahead and set your credit card to ‘shop’ mode.

NARS · Highlighting Bronzing Collection Summer 2017

 

NARS is kicking off the season with a bang; introducing the Highlighting Bronzing Collection for Summer 2017, consisting of the Bord de Plage Palette and three new Velvet Shadow Stick shades. I don’t know about you, but looking at this group has me thinking that all I need add is a quick swipe of mascara and some lip balm, and BAM — Summer look mastered. PS: I wouldn’t say no to a beach thrown in as well …

NARS · The Orgasm Collection

 

ORGASM. This one particular word can be so evocative, or perhaps I should say provocative? When NARS first introduced Orgasm Blush, it was like the big bang (see what I did there?) of the beauty world and quickly became THE cult face product everyone needed to have. Fast forward a few years to the present and The Orgasm Collection because as we all know, one is never enough … (I swear, this practically writes itself)

NARS · Liquid Blush Collection

 

With the recent launch of NARS’ Liquid Blush Collection, the brand has managed to create a whole new cheek experience and these lovelies have quickly become the ones I reach for first, I might add. As Summer and warmer weather approaches, the last thing I want is to apply anything heavy on my face and these blushes are redefining what it means for makeup to look ‘natural’; I like to think of them as the perfect flushes of colour (oh, and how gorg is the press box they came in?).

NARS · Sun Wash Diffusing Bronzer Collection

 

I have a special affinity to certain products, whether it’s because there was some event happening in my life at the time that makes them special to me, or simply because they have proven themselves time after time; NARS’ Laguna is one such product, being the very first bronzer I ever used. So how do you improve on an icon? For starters you create a few more shades, give the surface powder a new look, and then add a little magic to the formula and … voilà! Sun Diffusing Bronzer is born.
