For Holiday 2014, François Nars projects a bold new design that’s anything but straightlaced. Cutting-edge color with custom packaging that weaves an intricate web of black gloss into a modern take on lace.
The NARS Holiday 2014 Color Collection – Laced With Edge includes:
- Adriatic – Glistening soft cream (pair with Soleil D’Orient for that Brigitte Bardot vibe!)
- Deadly Catch – Crimson
- Femme Fleur – Shimmering brick red with gold pearl
- Burning Love – Bright ruby with subtle shimmer
- Corsica – Shimmering pink raspberry
- Soleil D’Orient – Shimmering pink champagne
Blush in Almeria (tan rose), $30
I was able to preview two of the products in the NARS Holiday – Laced With Edge Collection; the Almeria Blush and Corsica Lip Gloss. Both exceeded my expectations. NARS Blush is always well-pigmented and I was a little concerned that Almeria would be too heavy, but no. I would say use a light sweep of your brush, but it’s a beautiful color, especially if you have dark hair/features.
Can we talk about Corsica Lip Gloss? Seriously, I have found my holy grail color (and I’ll totally be buying backups!). Although it’s described as “shimmering pink raspberry”, I’d call it a touch richer than that. But it’s perfect. Not sticky, long-wearing, face-brightening…I love it!
The NARS Holiday 2014 Color Collection – Laced with Edge is available now at NARS boutiques and narscosmetics.com and in department and specialty stores beginning November 1, 2014.
