NARS Dual Intensity Blush in Impassioned

NARS Dual Intensity Blush in Impassioned

This cool-hued shade of pink delivers a youthful zing of color to the cheeks, and is a perfect match for the shadows in the collection.  Retail price is $30.

NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Kari

If you haven’t already tried it, NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow is simply amazing.  The formula can be applied wet or dry and delivers highly pigmented, smooth color.  Cressida is a shimmering cobalt that makes a perfect accent for your eye makeup look.  Kari is a muted mauve that is so versatile!  I like to use it as a lid shade.  Retail price is $29 per compact.

NARS Lip Gloss in Instant Crash

NARS Lip Gloss in Instant Crash

This glossy, warm apricot shade is a new favorite of mine.  It works as a “better than neutral” color, perfect to pair with basically any shade without disappearing on the lips.  Retail price is $26 per Lip Gloss.
