Is it time to spring forward yet? I have had enough of winter, and on this first day of February, I have decided that it is time to start talking about Spring! I can't think of a better way than to show you the pretty NARS Spring 2018 color collection and the collections fresh take on luminous neutrals — it's certainly up my alley.
The NARS spring color collection is a full collection of nudes, from eyes to cheeks to lips and I am loving all of the products.
Lips are gorgeous and creamy with the full-coverage new shades of Lip Cover. I had never used this formula before and it is a winner. I cannot get enough of ALL of the shades in the lineup. Embrasse Moi is my favorite shade to wear. I apply two or three coats to get the desired full-coverage color that I like. It is creamy and unexpectedly lasts all day long. I sometimes apply it over Hell Gate or Summer Fire (my favorite combo). I have been also wearing Hell Gate on its own quite often, as well, but with this one, I don't need to layer it on.
The shimmering tones of the Highlighting Powder Blush in Free Soul is beautiful. This is the perfect nude pink shade that is universally flattering and will nice on all skin tones.
The Liquid Blush in Hot Tin Roof is highly pigmented and was also made to work on all skin tones. I have found that it's best to take the little spatula type applicator and dot a very tiny amount of the liquid to a sponge like the beautyblender and then apply to your cheeks. It is easy to blend into the skin this way.
I am thrilled with the two metallic Velvet Shadow Sticks in the collection, both Frioul and Galice are gorgeous on their own or worn together. If you want versatility, lots of pigment and an easy to use shadow stick, you cannot go wrong with this product.
