Nars Spring 2011 collection is finally here and it is beautiful. I love how the metallic earth tones are mixed with some bright pops of vivid blue and parrot green, which remind us of the hues of nature in spring. And while we’re waiting for spring to start, we can create some fresh, sophisticated looks with a hint of color and fun with this collection.
Let’s start with the eyes. The Eyeshadow Duos($32.00 each) are available in Bateau Ivre, featuring a sky blue and a denim blue, and Nouveau Monde featuring a metallic silver and a gold. An odd combination, but it works. The Trio Eyeshadow in Calanque ($32.00) is perfect for natural lovers: it includes a platinum gold with silver flecks, light matte caramel and antique goldish bronze shades.
The Soft Touch Pencils ($24.00) come in Hollywoodland (a pale gold) and Celebrate (parrot green). They are beautiful but from what I heard they are prone to creasing. Sadly, there are no blushes in this collection, but your nails will get everyone’s attention with the Nail Polish in Desparado ($16.00), an antique brass gold with a metallic finish. Not very springy but beautiful nonetheless.
Finally, the lips. The Lipglosses ($24.00 each) are available in Nana, a deep black grape which I think should be quite sheer, Angelika, a very pretty candy pink with silver and gold flecks, and Super Orgasm, a glittery peachy pink. Lipstick gals will be able to choose between Tzigane ($24.00), a sheer and subtle brandy pink that looks very natural on or the Pure Matte Lipstick in Madere ($25.00) a rich nude shade that feels comfortable on and lasts long.
