I recently got to see NARS’ makeup artist Cindy Rodriguez demo a look using products from the NARS summer 2013 and Pierre Hardy collections!
Here are a few pics!
Can we just stop for a minute to marvel at Cindy??? I need those lashes and those cheekbones in my life!!!
I received 2 products from the collection.
Tolede is a rosy nude. The formula is quite creamy and leaves a slight glossy finish. It is similar to Smashbox’s Primrose Be Legendary Lipstick. This actually works on dark skin quite nicely. It’s not ashy and I pair this with a brown lipliner.
Paris Follies Larger Than Life Lip Gloss What a pretty colour! Reminds me of the inside of a guava! A deep pink-coral colour. This is a non-sticky gloss that goes on sheer on my pigmented lips but can be built up to a medium opacity. I will be wearing this for summer!! This is a pretty universal colour. It will look natural on those with lighter skintones and look like a punchy colour on those with medium to dark skintones. If you have more pigmented lips, maybe add a touch of concealer to even out the lip prior to applying. The brush is a tiny, stiff brush. You have to dip the wand back into the tube to get enough product out. I am not a fan of that, but I love the texture of the gloss. I did a summer coral look using this gloss that I hope to post soon!
Check out NARS’ website for purchasing details!
Are we all ready for the heat??
