Spring Beauty 2010: NARS
happy tuesday beauties! i made a trip to Sephora today to check out the new Nars spring 2010 collection, then discovered that they didn't have it (oh, the heartbreak!). it is online though, so i figure it won't be too long before i see it in my local store.
i will admit i already am loving the colors featured in this collection-- can you say gorgeous?? we are in for a beautiful spring season, i would say. the nail color, Purple Rain-- love! i hear it calling my name (ok, a bit dramatic, i know, but you beauty die-hards know what i'm talking about!), and of course, the glosses and shadows look amazing.
let's take a look at the NARS 2010 spring collection, shall we?
Cruising Lipstick described as a subtle, sexy pink lipstick; this shade is sheer and natural-looking. the hydrating formula can be worn alone, or over a NARS Lip Pencil for variations in color and depth; neutral enough to pair perfectly with dramatic eyes, yet alluring enough to attract attention when used on its own.
Easy Lover Lip Gloss amazing luster meets sexy color in this ultra-sheer hot pink lip gloss. an eyecatching and refreshing springtime hue, perfectly suited to deliver super shiny, sensual lips. add an extra dab of it in the center of the bottom lip to accentuate sheen and fullness.
Ophelia Lip Gloss high-shine strawberry nectar lip gloss is deliciously sweet and seductive. wear it alone, or over NARS lip products for a more intense effect and color variation. the glossy formula will capture both the light and the attention of admirers.
Purple Rain Nail Polish is, as the brand describes it, destined to become a modern classic and as intensely gothic as it is a bright and audacious shade of purple. the long-wearing formula vacillates between opposites: rocker or royalty, rebellious or refined. i know i already said this, but i love this shade already.
D. Gorgeous Single Eyeshadow described as a gorgeous, dusty lilac powder eyeshadow that yields a subtle hint of flirtiness; long-wearing, crease-resistant matte formula is translucent texture and can be applied sheer, or layered with other NARS products for a bolder result.
Camargue Duo Cream Eyeshadow is a pairing of golden moss and sienna, named for the deep, dancing, sun-cast hues found in the french river delta. with multi-colored reflections comes in a soft-blending, glistening cream eyeshadow formula. wear it alone or layered beneath NARS powder eyeshadows to create more color, depth and intensity.
Kuala Lumpur Duo Eyeshadow is influenced by contrasts of rich and subtle, traditional yet modern. this perfectly harmonized gold infused rose and boysenberry pairing can be worn separately or together, sheer or layered for a more dramatic effect. try swiping one shade over the entire eyelid and applying the other just beneath the brow bone to highlight.
Bains Douches Glitter Pencil is a silver glitter-infused sky blue hue that delivers powerful, vibrant color. slides on smooth and remains creamy for blending. can be used layered or alone to line, accent, highlight or illuminate the eyes. no matter how it's used, the look will be as ultra-chic as the legendary parisian nightclub for which it was named.
