NARS is a solid brand from a great makeup artist. It consistently cranks out well-made products. If I have one beef with the line, it's a minor one: their collections are often a jumble of colors!
The NARS Summer '12 collection is surprisingly cohesive though! The Exotic Dance and Dogon eyeshadow duos (white and beige shimmers & silver-lavender and navy, respectively) are great companions to the shadow trio, Cap Ferrat (tropical teals and blues). I'm not quite sure how the green-yellow glitter liner, Queen, fits in, though...
The collection's lip products offer something for everyone. Go trendy coral with Wonder lipgloss or go with a warmer and softer version of 2012's hot color (ORANGE!!) with yellow-pink Mayflower lipstick. Pink lovers can opt for Bolero Velvet Matte Lip Pencil: warm, light and bright. Fuchsia fans like myself should give Carthage Pure Matte Lipstick a shot.
Take these awesome Greek Isles shades and run with them. Just make sure your gladiator sandals let your Kismet gold polish shine! Crisp summer white Ecume will keep your mani looking polished.
There's also a new blush called New Order. NARS makes amazing blushes! It's a cool, soft pink with visible cool sparkle.
So what do you think? Interesting? Boring? Do you prefer a trend jumble like most NARS collections, or a fairly coherent, matchy-type collection like MAC and Chanel usually present? What's your favorite blush? Does anyone really wear gladiator sandals?
