NARS’s new summer collection in collaboration with Christopher Kane is a gorgeous mix of brights and sheer pops of color in limited edition packaging. My two favorite pieces from the collection are the Glow Pink Lip Gloss ($26; narscosmetics.com) a sheer cool toned purple-pink gloss and the hot pink blush, Starscape (limited edition; $30; narscosmetics.com).
Both colors, although very bright to look at, are extremely wearable and flattering. The Starscape Blush can be sheered out to look like a light flush of pink and since there’s no chunky shimmer or glitter, it looks very natural when used with NARS’ Yachiyo brush. It is quite easy to go overboard, but also easy to control the intensity with a less dense brush.
The Glow Pink Lip Gloss is almost a clear gloss with a hint of pink on my pigmented lips. It brightens up the complexion and layers beautifully with many other lipsticks. There’s no strong scent or taste and the formula is super comfortable and moisturizing. If you are looking for a brighter pop of color, just as it looks in the tube, Glow Pink might not be the one, but if you love sheer pinks and easy to swipe and go glosses, this is fabulous! Both these products are absolutely gorgeous and will flatter any complexion, especially those in the medium/dark category. They are an easy way to wear brights effortlessly without having to worry about going overboard.
