NARS Spring 2016 Collection


If only NARS Spring 2016 Color Collection had an underlying message — like that of an artwork or what we could get a grasp of if we were to break down a Robert Frost poem — that would be to showcase the many forms of 'natural'.

Impassioned Blush delivers a radiating subtle flush; the chic, sweet shades in Hammamet Duo Eyeshadow ostensibly mimic the natural pigment of the lids, yet evoke sheer sophistication with bronzed rose's* ethereal shimmer; from dainty guava (Vida Loca Lip Gloss) to understated red (Banned Red Lipstick), ever-feminine lip shades are part of the latest collection, too, in either lipstick or lip gloss form.

NARS Spring 2016 Color Collection has also introduced Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow (pictured above: in shade Cressida), which can be applied either wet or dry, depending on the desired intensity and finish.

In the face department, it goes without saying that there is something for each undertone — cool or warm — and complexion — light, medium or dark — what with more than ten Velvet Matte Skin Tint shades under the same line. Finding your truest color and giving it a bit of lift rather than concealing it behind a thick cosmetic layer, has in fact always been NARS's ethos; and that's exactly what Velvet Matte Skin Tint delivers.
