NARS recently released their Spring 2017 collection, and as the makeup-addict that I am, I immediately had to get my hands on a few of the new releases. For years now, NARS has been one of my favourite and go-to cosmetic brands. I feel that they are a brand you can almost always rely on for having quality products that tick off all the boxes on your beauty needs.
NARS Spring 2017 Collection is filled with bright shades of aqua and violet as well as softer pinks and nude tones. It is a truly “springy” looking collection that will brighten and freshen up your makeup game this coming spring.
NARS Spring 2017 Review
Usbek is a Velvet Shadow stick in a deep eggplant purple. This shadow stick easily glides over your eyes to create a bold and intense look. Once applied the shadow has a slight pearly-metallic finish to it. Usbek is a very long-wearing eyeshadow and it is crease resistant. The one downfall with this shadow is that when you blend it out with a brush it does become patchy.
Siros is a stunning warm-toned golden copper eyeshadow stick. Like Usbek, this shadow easily glides over your eyes, but since this colour is so soft it creates a much more natural and wearable finish. This colour became my quick go-to whilst on holiday as it was perfect for both day, beach, and night looks. This shadow stick is very long-wearing and I didn’t find it creased at all. It does not become patchy once blended.
The blush I tried from this collection is Bumpy-Ride. Bumpy-Ride is described on the NARs website as a “Shimmering Candy Pink” but I would describe this colour a more peachy once applied than a pink. It’s been described to have a golden shimmer in it, and while I would say it has a sheen to it, I would not say that it has a strong golden tone to it. In the pan, this colour looks very bright and intimidating but it actually applies very soft. It is a very wearable and long-lasting blush that is perfect for spring.
