First Look: NARS Spring 2016 Color Collection

It’s here! And it’s fabulous!

I love all the fresh shades!

I love all the light and fresh shades!

“The colors look very fresh and pretty because of the soft shades like rose, apricot, and mint,” share François Nars. I didn’t get a sample of the mint, but it is a pretty dominant shade in their campaign.

A behind-the-scenes look at Nars' S/S 2016 muse, Mariacarla Boscono.

Do you see thee mint on the lids of NARS muse, Mariacarla Boscono? I actually like it!

There are bolder shades in the collection, like midnight blue and warm red, but I’ve been digging natural-toned shadows lately. Shall we explore them?

The eyeshadows! These are perfect for looking polished during the day.

The eyeshadows! You can apply them wet or dry to vary the intensity.

My fave would have to be the NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Kari, P1,550. It’s a soft, rose pink that’s great for creating the crease over your lids (to get the shadowy, deep-set look naturally). The NARS Hammamet Duo Eyeshadow, P1,850, will definitely give you more value-for-money though (that’s the bronzed rose + matte beige). I’ll have to update this once I try it on my lids to show you how it looks!

Nars Lip Gloss in Vida Loca, P1,450.

NARS Lip Gloss in Vida Loca, P1,450.

The shade is described as guava and it’s a limited edition color. As far as glosses go, it’s a bit too pricey for me. But hey, if you’re a makeup collector and have the budget, go for it!

Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint, P2,450.

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint, P2,450.

My first impression: It’s kinda thick for a skin tint, isn’t it? You only need a teensy bit to even out your skin, but it is rather blendable for a matte formula (I used my fingers). I’m looking forward to using this a substitute for my regular tinted moisturizer since I get too oily whenever I use that during summer. Super psyched that it has SPF 30 + its broad-spectrum, too!
