The summer is all about smoldering hot makeup, and the NARS' Endless Summer Collection is all about the warmth of this seductive season.

In case you've missed our mention of the Hot Escape Eye & Cheek Palette in our recent Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts, it is an item that we are currently obsessed with. It is not only the star of the Endless Summer Collection, it is a must-have palette!

Just looking at this palette and you can tell that it is a good one. It is filled with undressed nudes that will work for everyday. They are universally flattering and will work on all skin tones. 

The palette itself has four all new shades of eyeshadows in both shimmering and matte finishes. There is also a limited-edition blush and highlighter to complete a fresh, flushed cheek look.

The matte shades are highly pigmented (as is NARS formula) and they have a super smooth velvety-matte finish. The shimmering shades are great for adding a highlight or a beautiful shimmer to the lids.
