NARS Spring 2018 Color Collection

A few weeks ago, NARS came out with their Spring 2018 collection! This collection includes two eyeshadow sticks, four liquid lipsticks and two blushes.

For me, the star of this collection is the Highlighting Blush in Free Soul ($38 CAD for 4.8g). The formula is super smooth and almost creamy to the touch!

I love the finish, frosty but not glittery! It's a beautiful luminous blush for fair skin tones, and a pretty highlighter for medium to dark complexions.

It last all day on me (more than 12 hours).

For the eyes, there are two new Velvet Shadow Sticks ($35 CAD for 1.6g) : Frioul and Galice.

I already tried these eyeshadow sticks in the past, and I found them to be hit or miss.

Unfortunately, these two new shades didn't work for me.

Galice (light pewter grey) is easy to apply, but it settles in my fines lines after only 2 hours.

Frioul (plummy brown with a turquoise sheen) is too sheer and very patchy on me. This one doesn't last more than 4 hours.

Next up is the Liquid Blush in Hot Tin Roof ($38 CAD for 15ml), a dark rusty peach with a matte finish.

The formula is very thin, but this color is extremely pigmented! It doesn't feel oily or sticky on the skin, it's very lightweight and suitable for all skin types.

It lasts incredibly well too, more than 12 hours on me! When I remove my makeup at night, the blush looks like it's freshly applied.

With that being said, this shade is crazy pigmented so it's not the best color for pale skin tones. It's easy to apply too much, it happened to me and it wasn't a good look. If you want to try NARS' liquid blushes and your skin is pale, I would suggest to try Torrid or Luster instead!

Last but not least are the Lip Cover liquid lipsticks ($33 CAD for 6ml), which are available in 4 shades : Embrasse Moi, Under Arrest, Summer Fire and Hell Gate. The applicator is a bit hard, but easy to use.

Two of them have a cream finish (Under Arrest, Hell Gate) and the formula is very creamy and pigmented, the colors are completely opaque. I love them!

The other two shades have a shimmery finish and feel more dry on the lips, so I prefer to add a bit of lipbalm or lipgloss. I love the shade Summer Fire (with lipbalm), but Embrasse Moi was a pass for me. It accentuates dry skin, looks streaky, and the color is very unflattering on me (but this is more a matter of taste).
