Sometimes I feel like my favorite NARS products can do no wrong and the blushes and lip pencils have always topped my list.
New for Spring 2019 we now have the NARS Exposed Cheek & Lip Makeup Collection which is comprised of the Exposed Cheek Palette and three Explicit Lip Color Duos.
Exposed Cheek Palette ($59.00)
The NARS Exposed Cheek Palette includes six shades of cheek color in: Tell All (pearlescent golden pink), Now or Never (satin terracotta), Give it Away (satin nude), Make You Mine (satin peach), Come Hither (satin watermelon) and New Fling (satin fuchsia).
I’m loving the formula of these blushes. Tell All is more of a highlighter for me (and I think also for most) but the other shades are so lovely. Even the darker ones give off the perfect tint when used with a light hand. These blushes are meant to be buildable, which is something I can appreciate since I don’t like do overdo it with cheek color.
When I used this palette I had no issues blending out any of the blushes and they lasted throughout my day without fading. These shades also look beautiful when layered together.
Explicit Color Lip Duo ($22.00)
Three NARS Explicit Color Lip Duos have been released in Dragon Girl (siren red), Sex Machine (pink mauve) and Intriguing (rose pink). Each duo contains a 0.06 oz. Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and a 0.12 oz. Lip Tint. These Lip Tints are exclusive to the duos.
I’m a long-time fan of the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils but the Lip Tints are new to me. They felt comfortable on as almost a fully opaque gloss. Wear time was that of a gloss but when you wear it over the Lip Pencils you’ll be able to extend that some.
The pairings are a fabulous idea and the smaller sizes make them perfect for your makeup bag. Of course my absolute favorite is Intriguing for obvious reasons 😉 Love me a nude lip.
