NARS Cosmetics Makeup Reviews, Swatches and Product Launches

At the 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2010 show, Lisa Butler for NARS Cosmetics created a look that is clean and textural, giving a sense that makeup is there but not detectable from the plain eye. “The idea is not to be harsh. The look is part sheer with shades of green, brown and lilac fading into each other” said lead artist Lisa Butler. The key points include highlights of iridescence and gold to the cheekbones, light liner (almost invisible) and peach lips. “There is some shimmer so when the face moves around, the light really captures it. But there are no lines – no eye lines, no lip lines.”

Cleansing oils have been a staple in my routine for 10 years now and one of my favorite makeup brands, NARS, has finally joined the bandwagon to give us his very own Makeup Cleansing Oil.

The Makeup Cleansing Oil eliminates makeup traces and flushes out pores for more effective next-step cleansing without leaving any residue. Plus unlike other regular cleansing oils, it is made with exclusive advanced technology so you can apply with either wet or dry hands.

I have been using NARS Aqua Gel Hydrator and Brightening Serum religiously and they have never failed me. I can’t wait to try this out and report back!

The cleansing oil retails $40 and is now available at Neiman Marcus.

The long-anticipated Sheer Glow and Sheer Matte Foundations from NARS are finally here!

The two foundations first made their debuts at New York Fall 2009 Fashion Week and will replace the existing NARS Oil-free Foundation and Balanced Foundation. Sheer Glow is a glowing, satin-finish foundation that is great for those with normal to dry skin while Sheer Matte provides a soft matte finish and helps to control oil and shine throughout the day.
