Summer brings with it a cocktail of warm earth tones and brazen shimmers. Eyes glisten in icy peach and matte apricot, or shine in iridescent orchid and blue. Lips are subtle in a glossy nude beige pink, or bold in matte strawberry red. A delicate seashell pink lends nails a flattering hue for an overall look that’s sizzling, sophisticated and—like so many summery moments—simply unforgettable. summer brings with it a cocktail of warm earth tones and brazen shimmers.

Thakoon for NARS Nail Collection 2012

Fashion and beauty have always gone hand in hand. Now, those hands have the nail polish to match. Introducing the Thakoon for NARS Nail Collection, the brand’s first collaboration with a fashion designer in the nail category.

Here is a quick interview with Francois Nars about the new tinted moisturizers.  Find more information here.

1. How did you incorporate French Polynesia into the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF30/PA+++?

I love being at my home in French Polynesia, so I wanted to bring as much of the islands into this product as I could. The Galaxaura, for instance, is a mineral-rich, deep sea algae that grows in the warm tropical waters of the Polynesian islands’ tidal zones.

Hey!

So NARS is releasing their new line of tinted moisturizers for Spring 2012.  I think these were first seen at NY Fashion week last autumn.

From NARS:

NARS founder and creative director François Nars is famous for his no-rules approach to makeup application. But when it comes to what lies beneath, his philosophy is clear:  Skin should shine through makeup.  To that end, NARS Cosmetics went about creating a tinted moisturizer unlike any other — a complexion-perfecting fluid with anti-aging and skin-brightening benefits.

NARS Spring 2012 Collection: An explosion of colour!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

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.
