Nars Spring 2012

Here’s an upcoming preview of Nars Spring 2012, a collection that is a study in contrasts: bold color underscored by sophisticated shimmer. For eyes, either tones of lavender and pink or bronze accented with navy on eyes. Cheeks are flushed with candy pink. Lips gleam in topaz or pop with berry. Metallic violet nails add a finishing touch to a collection that’s bright, strong and iconic. Here are the details of the complete Spring 2012 Nars collection.

Douce France Trio Eyeshadow ($45), with three gorgeous powder eyeshadow variations on pink—a cool light pink highlighter, a medium rose-petal pink and a deep rose with a touch of brick:
A minky silver-lavender single powder eyeshadow Lhasa ($23), named for the Tibetan region that hosts many Buddhist palaces:
An powder eyeshadow duo, Paramarimbo ($33) with a soft metallic green-brass and green-bronze tones. These are both shimmery textures with a rich complexity.

Gaeity Blush ($27), which I’ve been waiting for with my breath held. This is an extremely cool-toned pink:

Mexican Rose Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil ($24). I love this formula. This is a red/hot pink combination made to make your lips look gorgeous and glossy:

Valpraiso Pure Matte Lipstick ($25), an deep rose with a touch of coolness:

A shimmering gold-topaz deep nude in Bilbao Lipstick ($24)

Dark Rite Soft Touch Shadow Pencil ($24)

Diamond Life nail polish ($17) (not yet arrived)

In person, everything so far looks gorgeous. I’ll be providing you with updates and reviews on these products in the coming days.

  1. The Mexican Rose gloss pencil and the Llahsa shadow are must haves for me, but I’m also really intrigued by the Paramarimba duo – I wonder how it would work on my green eyes and fair, yellow toned skin? Can’t wait for your reviews!!

  2. Thank you for the lovely preview! I have been waiting for Gaiety, too; I’m very curious to see how it compares to Desire! (PS: Will you be doing any reviews for Burberry Spring 2012? I have fallen in love with (practically) the entire collection!)

  3. Hi, NARS cosmetic doesn’t excite me much. I think packaging can make a big influence on shopping for makeup. The single eye shadow, Lhasa, is a very nice shade of purple. I could see myself wearing that.

  4. Oooooh! I die for Lhasa and Gaiety and Mexican Rose!!!!!!

  5. Valpraiso looks wonderful. And Lhasa probably works wonders on my skintone – too bad I’m not comfortable wearing non-nude colours on my eyes.

  6. Lhasa looks amazingly gorgeous. Can’t wait to see swatches!

    Do you plan on reviewing the Spring collection for Chanel also? I love all of the Spring launches 🙂

  7. The colors are all gorgeous, but the one that I absolutely have to try is the nail polish.
