Am I the only one obsessed with complexion products? I already have my arsenal and yet I find myself wanting to know all about new launches. Well, the new launches where the brand bothers to have my shade. :/
NARS is coming out with a new concealer in January—this one offers its highest coverage in a concealer YET. Let’s take a look at the deets—if I can get my hands on some samples, I’ll have a review and swatches up later. Stay tuned—don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE to this blog so you don’t miss any updates.
When I first heard news of this NARS Velvet Lip Glide launch, I mistakenly assumed these would be NARS’ answer to the liquid lipstick. These are in no way like a liquid lipstick. In fact, they’re more of what it’d be like if a cream lipstick kept its formula but was put inside the same kind of container and applicator glosses come in.
NARS Cosmetics has been a brand that has always stood by not only diversity, but creating collections that transcend with every type of woman. So it’s no surprise that the brand’s latest collab with world-renown photographer Sarah Moon brings a unique approach to femininity and how we perceive beauty and individuality. Just in time for the holidays, the 25 piece collection is as dreamy as you can imagine. Inspired by the nostalgic futurism of the 1925 film Metropolis, François Nars and Moon joined creative forces to bring alive a line that is short from luxurious. The range of shades and formulas are true to the brand and the packaging looks like a work of art! Judging by the images, the colors are stunning and true to what fall/winter makeup should be – dark plums, rich reds and smoky eyes. Among the 25 pieces there are 10 gift sets – so there’s no excuse for you not to spoil your friends and family as well as yourself! It will be released exclusively on NARScosmetics.com and NARS boutiques on October 15th and on sephora.com and specialty stores on November 1st. Check out the full collection below.
I go back and forth between #TeamLipGloss and #TeamLipstick and even waver between traditional lipsticks and liquid lipsticks. All have their pluses and minuses and some go better with certain looks and moods than others. Me for instance, I LOVE a pretty shiny gloss (paired with a mostly matte makeup look—see Don’t Forget Balance in Your Makeup for more tips) until my hair keeps getting stuck in it when it’s windy. Or I love a good traditional tube of lipstick until the cap accidentally comes off in my bag and all my belongings become tinted with a deep, bluish-red. And then I’ll LOVE the longevity of a liquid lipstick until I’m performing surgery to get that sucka off during my nighttime skin routine. *eyeroll*
