NARS x Charlotte Gainsbourg Summer 2017 Collection


There’s something about François Nars that I really admire, and apart from his obvious makeup artistry & photography skills, it’s without a doubt the fact that he doesn’t compromise his aesthetic vision for the sake of what’s trending. This latest collaboration with French actress/singer/model/muse Charlotte Gainsbourg is a testament to this philosophy, showcasing a selection of products which reflects this icon’s effortless laissez-faire beauty chic — and all without fanfare, bells, or whistles.



NARS · Velvet Matte Lip Pencil 2017


NARS has recently added 10 new shades to their cult-fave Velvet Matte Lip Pencil range, bringing the total to 28 colours in the lineup. It’s no secret that I’m rather obsessed with makeup (ummm…the blog?) and while I can spend hours selecting the right products for my look, I can also be equally lazy when it comes to my lips and tend to reach for something easy. That said, what can possibly be easier than a pencil? Well, probably several things, but you know what I mean.



NARS · Loaded Eyeshadow Palette


NARS has been on quite the roll lately, creating some of the best palettes we’ve seen in a while; case in point are the recent Banc de Sable Highlighting Palette and the Unfiltered Blush Palettes. And as if those weren’t enough, get ready for the Loaded Eyeshadow Palette: a selection of 12 never-before-seen shades from this brand that will in all likelihood blow you away. At least, that’s what it did to me, and one might say that I’ve seen more than my fair share of beauty.



NARS · Banc de Sable Highlighting Palette


Trust François Nars to draw inspiration from sand in creating the Banc de Sable Highlighting Palette. Exclusive to Sephora, the three shades of this palette can be worn dry or dampened, solo or layered … you’re only limited by your tastes & comfort levels. As Summer is fast approaching (yesssssss), tis the season to get your glow on and you can bet that this little trio is about to become my new bff.



NARS · Artistry Face & Eye Makeup Brushes

NARS makeup brushes opener


For the most part, I’m of the “you get what you pay for” school of thought and barring very few exceptions, that rule almost always applies to my makeup brushes. For me, it’s about investing in top quality tools since they’re going to get quite a bit of mileage and I expect them to last; picking up a lower grade product that will disintegrate after one washing just won’t do (plus I hate the thought of throwing money away). Which brings me to these NARS Artistry Face & Eye Makeup Brushes: form, function, and fabulosity … or pretty much what you’d expect from a world renown makeup artist and photographer.
