I love when companies start bringing out their spring collections, it’s sort of like a rebirth for me! Colours start getting brighter, clothing becomes more lightweight and soon enough I’ll be living in shorts and slippers!

So NARS is bringing out their Spring 2012 Colour Collection, which will be available from January 15 at narscosmetics.com.

From NARS:

The Spring 2012 Collection is a study in contrasts: Bold color underscored by
sophisticated shimmer. Eyes glisten in muted tones of lavender and pink, or
shimmer in bronze shades accented with rich navy. Cheeks are flushed with
candy pink. Lips gleam in topaz or pop with berry. Metallic violet nails add the
finishing touch to a collection that’s bright, strong and iconic.

SPRING 2012 COLOUR COLLECTION

Douce France Trio Eyeshadow (Limited Edition) $45

Named for the 1942 song by French singer-songwriter Charles Trenet. The Trio
Eyeshadow features three gorgeous pink shades—shimmery icy pink, shimmery
rose-petal pink and matte deep rose—that can be mixed to create a range of
looks, from delicate and innocent to bold and sophisticated. Wear each alone or
use one as a base, another to highlight and the third as a liner or contour.

Lhasa Single Eyeshadow $24

One of the highest cities in the world, Lhasa is the home to many significant
Tibetan Buddhist palaces. This shimmery lavender-gray Single Eyeshadow
lends lids a luminous look worthy of its spiritual namesake.

Paramaribo Duo Eyeshadow (Limited Edition) $34

The capital and largest city of Surinam, a tropical state in South America, was
the inspiration for this Duo Eyeshadow, with its metallic shades of brass and
bronze. Wear each solo, or use one as a base and the other as an accent or
highlight for a richly burnished effect.

Gaiety Blush $28

A bright candy-pink Blush that’s as cheerful as the state of joyful exuberance for
which it’s named.

Mexican Rose Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil $24

Just like its namesake flower, known for its long-lasting pink blooms, this hot-pink
Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil leaves lips soft and gorgeously glossy thanks to moisture-rich
hyaluronic spheres, which make pouts appear plumper.

Valparaíso Pure Matte Lipstick $25

The Chilean city is becoming increasingly known as the country’s cultural capital.
The rich raspberry Pure Matte Lipstick delivers long-wearing color with a
comfortable finish.

Bilbao Lipstick $24

A smooth and super-conditioning Lipstick in a shimmering topaz named for the
Basque region of Spain, which has been revitalized by the Frank Gehry–designed
Guggenheim Museum.

Dark Rite Soft Touch Shadow Pencil $24

The navy blue Soft Touch Shadow Pencil complements any warm-weather look.
Use the creamy, long-wearing formula alone, as a base for layering with powder
shadow, or to line and sculpt the eye.

Diamond Life Nail Polish (Limited Edition) $18

Sade’s 1984 debut album inspired this metallic violet Nail Polish. “Smooth
Operator” indeed.
