Right when I start thinking to myself “I don’t need any more makeup. I’m good.” NARS announces the launch of their Spring 2014 collection and I lose my mind.
While I only got my hand on two products, the entire collection is makeup bag worthy so get you a piece.
Khao San Road Eyeliner ($24) is a beautiful, bright metallic aquamarine. It’s got a super soft texture and goes on like butter. Plus the color is so intense, it’s a beauty lover’s wet dream. Are you kidding me NARS?! I applied this on my lower lash line (complemented with gold eyeshadow on my lids) and I looked 10x more awake that I should on a Monday morning.
Next is Timanfaya Satin Lip Pencil ($25). I’m generally a fan of the brand’s matte lip pencils due to their long-lasting abilities but I may have found the one Satin Lip Pencil to take permanent residence in my makeup bag. Timanfaya is a reddish orange color that didn’t look as intense on my lips as it does in pencil format. While one coat looks good, two is my optimal amount and it was more coral than orange. I was a bit afraid that this would get all MAC Morange on me but fear not. I don’t hate Morange but you have to be in the right frame of mind to wear it friends. If you’re seeking an orange lip color without screaming “I’M WEARING ORANGE LIPSTICK, Y’ALL!” pick this up when it comes out.
This collection includes a slew of other products, like Kauai Duo Eyeshadow ($34), that I have my eye on. Luckily it will be available January 15, 2014 at NARS boutiques and on narscosmetics.com.
