Last week I hosted an amazing Influencer event at NARS in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace.
Myself and 40 of Las Vegas’ top Influencers were treated to some fabulous cocktails from Avion Tequila and Absolut Elyx (seriously they were so good and named after two of the new Lip Covers-Summer Fire Paloma and Hell Gate 45), fabulous hair styling from DryBar and of course a presentation of the NARS Spring Color Collection.
The NARS Spring It On Spring Color Collection includes new products for eyes, lips and cheeks with a ‘fresh spectrum of luminous neutrals and molten accents’. Sounds incredable, right?
If you are looking for glowy cheeks and soft saturated lips this is the collection for you.
Celebrity makeup artist Saffire Cherry walked us through the “Spring It On” Limited Edition Color Collection which features Liquid Blush in Hot Tin Roof, a highlighting blush in Free Soul, Four Lip Covers (Under Arrest, Summer Fire, Hellgate and Embrase Moi) and two Velvet Shadow Sticks (Frioul and Galice). PLUS a full course on the totally amazing NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation and Radiant Creamy Concealer.
She shared a great tip for applying the Liquid Blush, which is a product that may seem daunting to many. Saffire says that when you apply pat it into the skin rather than rubbing. Because it’s a liquid most people think they need to rub it in but you will get more precision by patting and a little goes a VERY long way because it’s super pigmented!
I am a huge fan of the Lip Covers. They are the perfect liquid lipsticks. Providing full coverage, they have a smooth creamy feel and just the right amount of shine.
Embrasse Moi is a pale shimmering champagne that look great alone or layer with another shade. Under Arrest is a warm beigey tan. Summer Fire is a shimmering neutral-cool rose pink that isn’t too blue so its a great pink option for all skin tones and Hell’s Gate (my favorite for the collection) is a gorgeous brick red. They don’t wear all day like the Powermatte Lip Pigment but they have pretty good lasting power.
Meet my new OBSESSION… NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. Although this product isn’t new to NARS they just launched six more shades so now it comes in 22 shades! So matching your skin perfectly is even easier.
How had I never used this before! It’s perfectly lightweight, smooth, and totally blendable. I also learned a trick at the event. Do you have a problem with your concealer wearing off or disappearing half way throught the day? If you apply NARS Radiance Primer under your eyes like eye cream BEFORE you apply your concealer it will help it wear longer, go on smoother and not settle into fine lines! PLUS it has SPF 35 which is always a good thing!
….and last but not least NARS Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation. Available in 33 shades (yes thirty three shades so you can get your best match EVER) this is NARS first specifically long-wearing foundation. Its breathable, fade-resistant formula is infused with Raspberry, Apple, and Watermelon extracts to help smooth and improve the look of your skin instantly, and over time for full-powered radiance. The finish is a smooth satin and it looks incredibly dynamic. It is a very high coverage foundation. If you’re just looking to even out your skintone a touch, but want freckles and natural dimension to come through, this isn’t for you. If you’re like me, and want an 100% even tone covering your entire face, then this product is a dream come true for you.
