“Fresh and fierce, strong and sexy.”

Indeed, NARS interpretation of Spring this year is bold, strong and feminine. There is a good mix of popping colours and neutral earthy shades to put together different types of looks. Other than the appearance, the names of the shades continue to be provocative.



Eyeshadow in “Persia”, Blush in “Seduction”, Shadow Pencil in “Corcovado” and Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in “Cythere”.


Duo Eye Shadows – “Bouthan” and “Mad Mad World”.


Radiant Creamy Concealer – Available in 5 shades.


Nail polish in “Disco Inferno”, Lipstick in “Dressed to Kill”. “Dressed to Kill” is a shade of wearable red packed with gold shimmer.


Disco Inferno goes live! Thanks Roseanne for lending me her fingers. 🙂


“Foreplay” cheek palette – the signature “Orgasm” blush shade (bottom right) with a matte fuchsia pink, matte coral and shimmer gold highlighter. 4 shades for you to be versatile with the cheeks.


The “Happening” eye and cheek palette – other than the “Orgasm” blush and “Laguna” bronzer, this palette contains all the must-have neutral shades for the signature smoky eyes.


Radiant Creamy Concealer (S$42, available from March 2013)

I’m not exaggerating but this is easily one of the best concealer I have ever encountered. It is extremely smooth, provides total coverage, yet is lightweight enough to be used under the eyes. Smoothing and blending is extremely easy, and a single stroke is all you need to cover a light blemish. The concealer is long-lasting such that I do not need to touch up at all after 8 hours wear.

According to NARS, this concealer is free of paraben, alcohol and fragrance. It is also enriched with hydrating skincare benefits.


Light Reflecting Setting Powder (S$50)

Unassuming at first glance, this powder is a total pleasant surprise. Available in pressed powder and loose powder versions, the pressed powder is slim and comes with a fabric pouch and slim powder applicator. The powder looks smooth as silk with some shimmer.

The powder does not show much colour when swatched, but the magic appears when you apply it on your skin over your foundation. This light reflecting setting powder not only mattifies, but also smoothen the skin and provides a soft velvety glow on your complexion. You could use the slim sponge applicator provided, or a kabuki brush to apply the powder. I have been using a kabuki brush and the finish doesn’t look cakey at all.

This is something that I will reach out frequently for touch-ups and to reduce shine on my face. A must-buy indeed.

NARS最新春季彩妆出现了新的色彩。感觉上可以大胆可以含蓄,颜色可以随意搭配,能够取得性感,朝气或清新的妆容。除了令人难以抗拒的颜色之外,今年的新品如遮瑕膏以及light reflecting setting powder都令人又惊又喜。这两件新品可是我近期非常喜欢的化妆品之一。遮瑕膏给人感觉轻盈,但是又有非常好的覆盖能力,而且具持久性。Light reflecting setting powder外貌看似普通,可是一抹在脸上,马上让您的肌肤看似柔软滑顺,犹如Photoshop一样,这么形容绝对一点也不夸张。
