I had the opportunity to try two products from the NARS High Seize Spring Collection: the Nā Pali Coast Multiple and Bimini Larger Than Life® Lip Gloss. I’ll start out by saying that both of these products are must-haves for me. I was blown away by how beautiful the colors are in person.
The Nā Pali Coast Multiple is the prettiest Multiple shade I own. It’s a rose-peach that looks amazing regardless of what other makeup you pair with it. I honestly don’t know that I’ve seen a cheek color this versatile. It lends itself to being a beautiful contouring shade; you can also use it on eyes. This is the ultimate multi-tasker and I don’t remember a shade that I’ve loved this much.
Bimini Larger Than Life® Lip Gloss is another great buy. I know, you’re thinking it’s just another pink lip gloss. But it’s not. It’s that pinky-peachy color of the sun setting on a perfect day. It’s the right shade of lip gloss that everyone can wear. It’s the lip gloss shade you’ll grab for when you don’t know what to grab to finish your look. Love, love, love!
For spring-summer, although I didn’t try it, I think China Seas would be a fabulous eye shadow duo to have. That hit of turquoise is just the pop of color that looks incredible against a tan.
