The NARS Spring 2015 Colour Collection is a well edited collection of only 7 pieces. The collection features Tilda Swinton in the second of four ‘Portraits by The Artist’, a seasonal series of acts created by NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars. Act 2, for Spring 2015, is a nude scene – daring, baring, anything but neutral.
Disrobed tones in spectral effects expose a new natural state. The look begins with a provocative pink shimmer on cheeks. The barely-there effect extends to eyes, where a bold beige base sets the stage for burnished neutrals with lucid depth. Lips are undone in tan pigments topped with a whisper of opalescent gloss.
The collection includes 3 products for eyes, one blush, and 3 lip products:
- Porto Venere Eye Paint ($30 CAD) Soft pale pink
- Valhalla Single Eyeshadow ($28 CAD) Soft shimmering pink peach
- St-Paul-De-Vence Duo Eyeshadow ($40) Shimmering nectarine/Chestnut
- Reckless Blush ($35 CAD) Sheer pink shimmer
- Liguria Lipstick ($32 CAD) Nude caramel
- Chestnut Guyane Lip Gloss ($31 CAD) Seashell pink
- Vent Salé Lip Gloss ($31 CAD) Silver highlight
The three selections I have been testing are the Valhalla Single Eyeshadow, St-Paul-De-Vence Duo Eyeshadow, and Vent Salé Lip Gloss.
The St-Paul-De-Vence Duo Eyeshadow has a softly shimmering nectarine peach on the left and a warm mid toned satin matte brown on right. Both shades have nice pigmentation, blend beautifully, and they pair together perfectly for an easy, neutral eye.
The Valhalla Single Eyeshadow is a pale peach beige with fine pale pink shimmer. It has a good pigmentation while giving a slightly translucent effect. It is incredibly pretty and a wonderful eye brightening shade for the lid or inner corner. It also works beautifully paired with the duo in the collection. I do then to get annoyed with singles because I never know how to store them, and always forget to reach for them, but this one is going to be sticking around because she is just so pretty. These pictures do it no justice at all.
These colours are incredibly flattering on blue eyes.
The Vent Salé Lip Gloss is super fun. It is a very fine silver white shimmer with hints of pale aqua. The shimmer is very densely packaged in this gloss giving it amazing coverage for a shimmer gloss. It makes quite an impact worn alone. It gives great coverage without noticeably settling into lip lines. You can also apply a sheerer amount for a subtle shimmer or over a lipstick. It also happens to be perfect for lightly dabbing on the centre of your lips to give them the illusion of being fuller.
