I had a preview of NARS upcoming products and can’t wait to share with you more information about them. This post will feature the new All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and the Spring Collection, both will be available this month.
The overall colour palette for this season is very pastel, nude and understated.
All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and Soft Velvet Loose Powder
This is a feather-light liquid foundation, because it is so light that it feels powdery! Coverage is decent and this product can last for almost 16 hours – for me, it went well for my weekend out with a decent matte finish. NARS makeup artist Julyen suggested applying using our fingers, rather than a brush so that the foundation could adhere better to the skin.
Look at what how he applied the foundie on Sophia! The coverage was full but natural such that Sophia (who has great skin) looked as if she had a “good skin day” rather than foundie on.
I matched this foundation with the new Soft Velvet Loose Powder, which is available in 5 shades, but with little coverage. First thoughts, this seems similar to NARS Light Reflecting Setting Loose Powder launched in 2013.
Spring 2015 Collection
The above look on Tilda Swinton uses the new items from the Spring 2015 collection. As you can tell, Francois Nars hope to create a natural yet ethereal effect.
My attempt on the look – this is reminiscent of the strong brow look I did 2 years back.
Items that I like from this collection include the St Paul De Vence Duo Eye Shadow, Reckless Blush and Porto Venere Eye Paint. The Duo Eye Shadow is perfect for creating depth and contour for the eyes, enhancing the au naturel look, with Porto Venere Eye Paint as the velvety base and brow highlighter.
The Reckless Blush is a pleasant surprise as it looks intimidating at first with its immense shimmer. However, the blush is great as a highlighter on the cheek bones, adding definition, glow and radiance on the face.
Do check in with the NARS boutiques here if you would like to get your paws on any of these goodies. There is often a long waiting list for some of the coveted items that before they hit the shelves, they are sold out! PS: You can call NARS Orchard at +65 6235 0967 if you need to check on the stocks or would like to be on waiting lists.
