Winter is slowly fading into spring, and we can now finally say goodbye to our dark burgundies and grays and say hello to some much-needed color for spring. Now that it is finally acceptable to inject color into our wardrobe, why not do the same for makeup? NARS has us drooling over their newly released Spring collection, plus some extra bits and pieces that could definitely make their way into our makeup bags.
Duo Eyeshadow – Chiang Mai
(HK$330, LImited Edition)
NARS’ eyeshadow duos are well-known for their high pigmentation and wearability. Don’t be daunted by the shimmering blue in this duo, it provides a perfect wash of colour and can be built up into a bold pop on the lids.
Velvet Shadow Stick – Usbek
(HK$260, Limited Edition)
For many Asians, brown eyes are quite common and sometimes, wearing light colours with dark eyes can look a little off. However purple (and dark green) can perfectly complement darker eye colours. This eyeshadow stick is pigmented and creamy, and glides on like a dream.
Lip Gloss – Asphalt Jungle $250
(HK$250, Limited Edition)
This shade is described to be similar to a shimmering sangria. The shimmer pigments within the gloss are light and the formula is long lasting without being drying or too sticky. This shade is extremely wearable and adds an edge to your pout.
Aside from their new Spring collection, NARS also has a few additions to their permanent collection. They’ve brought out a new range of concealers and primers that are sure to make your makeup stay and look flawless all day.
Soft Matte Complete Concealer
Matte. High coverage. Weightless, natural finish. What more could you want from a concealer. The soft focus finish that this creamy concealer provides hides pigmentation and blemishes easily with a few quick swipes.
(Comes in 2 other formulas depending on skin type)
A primer that includes sun protection of up to 35/PA+++. This primer’s boosting complex revitalises and energises the skin for a fresh youthful complexion. It allows other makeup products to sit nicely on top the skin for a long lasting finish, and underneath matte foundations, this gives the perfect “lit from within” glow.
These are only some of the new releases from NARS, they’ve really been hitting the mark with every one of their products. Their Velvet Lip Glides come in 17 shades and their new Matte Multiples in 3 universally flattering shades. We’re all super excited for NARS and can’t wait to try them all?
NARS is available at Lane Crawford and at NARS boutique stores.
