NARS Summer 2016 Color Collection.

I don't know about you, but I have had it with this wishy-washing spring weather and just need summer to be here already. I long for longer days filled with warmth and sunny skies. If the NARS summer 2016 Color Collection doesn't rep summer in a more perfect way with its French Riveria look and feel, I don't know what will.

To bring the NARS Summer 2016 color collection to life, François Nars’ partnered with contemporary artist Konstantin Kakanias to bring the glamorous, vintage and whimsical look to the pieces. Just look!

NARS Summer 2016 Color Collection

With this collection comes a new lip product in NARS Lip Cover. Lip Cover is a full coverage, creamy feeling lip color that offers a lot of pigment and satin look to the lips. I find it on par with a lot of the creamy-matte liquid gloss products that have been released lately. I tried Get Dirty which is a dusky peachy rose shade that leaves a satin-matte finish to the lips. It wore for about four hours before starting to fade on my lips. I am hoping they make this product a permanent addition to the line; it's really nice.
