Spring Beauty 2009: NARS

NARS introduces their spring 2009 collection, inspired by the 1970's, boasting pastel hues and berry shades for a look of pure chic. i am loving this collection just from the info i've received, so i'm sure you and your beauty-loving selves will, too!

the details:

a striking matte brick-red eyeshadow, made infinitely more wearable in combination with a pearly white shadow or simple black liner, is tempered by a sweet, baby pink glossy lip; while eyes painted in pastel hues of dusty rose, sage and lilac are a fitting match for a statement-making berry lip. and everything should be paired with the only cheek for spring: sparkling and sculpted.

Francois Nars, founder and creative directer of NARS Cosmetics says, "my inspiration for spring was a very sexy woman. i wanted a bit of a '70s feeling, somewhere between Guy Bourdin and Chris Von Wangenheim's photographs-- aggressive, but very sensual and fragile at the same time."

the products:

new NARS Blush Duo
Francois Nars has always considered blush a critical beauty building block. this double compact opens to reveal one highlighting and one sculpting shade, allowing you to literally shape your desired look.

Hungry Heart- iridescent gold ivory and pink sand with golden sheen

new NARS Duo Concealer
since the skin on your face is not created equal, one shade of concealer usually won't suffice. this new palette features two complementary shades that can be blended together or used individually. creamy and completely crease-resistant, the new Duo Concealer is lightweight but still able to provide smooth, opaque coverage to eradicate skin redness, imperfections, and under-eye shadows.

Vanilla/Honey- fair complexions
Custard/Ginger- light to medium complexions
Praline/Toffee- medium to dark complexions

NARS Duo Eyeshadow
to celebrate spring's delicate femininity, Francois Nars introduces two new shimmery and frosty hued Duo Eyeshadows to the collection.

NARS Single Eyeshadow

this two-in-one convenience pairs the complementary colors of Orgasm and South Beach of the versatile, multi-purpose cult favorite for eyes, lips and cheeks.
