Inspired by the “seductive warmth of summer” four gifting sets will be released in the Hot Escape Eye & Cheek Palette, Sunseeker Lip & Light Duo, Undressed Liquid Lip Set I and Undressed Liquid Lip Set II.
Hot Escape Eye & Cheek Palette ($49.00). This eye and cheek palette includes ALL NEW SHADES in matte and shimmer finishes.
Shades Include: Aurora Eyeshadow (matte cream), Yucatan Eyeshadow (shimmering taupe), Endless Eyeshadow (shimmering warm gold), Next Wave Eyeshadow (shimmering graphite), Sunstreak Highlighting Powder (shimmering pale pink) and Hot Pursuit Blush (matte rose).
I was impressed with the performance of the eyeshadows on the eye. They swatched nicely but for some reason I wasn’t sure how they’d work. Next Wave in particular blew me away with it’s pigment. Everything blended out so nicely and wore well all day. Sunstreak Highlighting Powder is beautiful but VERY VERY subtle on the cheeks. I was able to build it up to use at the inner corners of my eyes by using a firm brush.
I do have a look featured at the end of this post and another here on Instagram.
The swatches below are done dry and on bare skin (no primers):
Sunseeker Lip & Light Duo ($24.00). Adorable mini-sizes of a cult-fave Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and Highlighting Powder for your look on-the-go.
Shades Include: Fort de France Mini Highlighting Powder (champagne) and Dolce Vita Mini Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (dusty rose).
Fort de France Highlighting Powder is my fave of the new NARS Highlighting Powders that were released earlier this year, so I’m super excited to have it in a mini-size. It’s awesome for travel and easier to keep on my vanity to use on the eyes!
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are some of my longtime favorites as well and Dolce Vita is a beautiful and universally flattering shade. Comfortable to wear and stunning on all!
Undressed Liquid Lip Set I ($49.00). This set includes 2 Velvet Lip Glides and 2 Powermatte Lip Pigments in a nude shade range.
Shades Include: Stripped Velvet Lip Glide (sheer beige), Cozumel Velvet Lip Glide (nude beige – limited edition), Antigua Powermatte Lip Pigment (rose beige – limited edition) and American Woman Powermatte Lip Pigment (chestnut rose).
Undressed Liquid Lip Set II ($49.00). This set includes 2 Velvet Lip Glides and 2 Powermatte Lip Pigments in a pink shade range.
Shades Include: Bound Velvet Lip Glide (soft pink rose), Cartagena Velvet Lip Glide (orchid pink- limited edition), Save the Queen Powermatte Lip Pigment (dusty mauve) and Haze Powermatte Lip Pigment (rose wood – limited edition).
You already know I’m a MAJOR fan of the NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments due to their color saturation and staying power but I’m likely not as vocal on how much I adore the feel of the NARS Velvet Lip Glide formula. While the staying powder of the Velvet Lip Glide formula isn’t anything more than what you’d expect of a product with a gloss finish they’ve got a lot of slip (with no stick) and are easy to apply. Both are, of course, comfortable (because how could you love something that wasn’t?!).
