Every year Nars launches it’s spring collection and this year it’s better than ever. Afterglow.
I went along to the John Lewis Nars Beauty counter in Intu Eldon Square to meet the wonderful team and pro artists. We had a wonderful afternoon of chatting make up and events whilst demonstrating the new afterglow collection.
Overlust Cheek Palette
The new cheek palette, Overlust has three powders and three creme options too. The shades help create a natural rush of colour and can be used all over the face. For the look I created we used it across the cheek and up into the brown to give a more editorial look and I loved it!
The three creme options are gel to powder highlighters that has skinfused glow technology and OMG it is amazing. I never use creme or gels on my face because I find it difficult to blend and then needs blending every 5 minutes. But this is not like that at all, because it turns to powder it sits softly on the face and doesn’t leave clumps on your face at all. The finish is beautiful!
AfterGlow Lip Balms
The collection has released 8 new shades of lip balms. They are super hydrating sand protect from the Monoi hydrating complex. They also contain a wonderful blend of antioxidants to condition and protect the lips.
Also, The colour pay off is brilliant for being a lip balm and the shades are beautiful for springtime. You can choose between the nude shades or pink. My personal favourites are pink.
Afterglow Eye Shadow Palette
This limited edition eyeshadow palette has 12 shades that are the perfect combination. The shades are brilliantly pigmented as most shades are from Nars.
The palette has a mix of matte, metallic, satin and shimmer eyeshadows.
Furthermore, The pigment of the shades has the innovative pigment power suspension technology in each shade. And the pearl reflective help give that shimmer to some of the other shades. As you can see the choice of colours are very versatile and give you the creativity to make a natural or bold look.
On a final note, The packaging of the whole collection is so stunning and makes you want to show it off everywhere! This crush on colour collection is one of my fave!
