At a Guerlain beauty event in January 2016, Olivier Echaudemaison, Guerlain’s legendary Make-up Creative Director, pointed out that I was the only journalist who was wearing a bold lip colour. He complimented me on the colour, a mix of red and orange, and asked me if I was wearing Guerlain. “I’m afraid not, it’s a lipstick by NARS,” I replied. He laughed and said: “Oh, François Nars? He used to work for me. He’s a very clever guy.”
NARS has become one of the most successful make-up brands. All make-up artists have a few make-up products by NARS in their bag. The quality of NARS products is excellent and the numerous shades flatter many skin tones.
HOTTEST LIPSTICK SHADES FOR FALL 2018
NARS Cosmetics has created the hottest lipstick shades for fall 2018. The new collection features three bold liquid lip formulas: Full Vinyl Lip Lacquer, Powermatte Lip Pigment and Velvet Lip Glide. Luxurious coverage meets luscious texture.
FULL VINYL LIP LACQUER
The smooth, creamy formula gives lips intense colour and a mirror-like shine. The non-sticky texture glides on smoothly with a comfortable feel and a line-free look. The new limited edition features vivid pigments that deliver buildable, full coverage colour with a reflective finish.
The two-sided applicator includes a plush side to deposit the ideal amount of colour onto lips, and a smooth side to evenly distribute pigments and intensify shine.
(Above from left to right) Abruzzo (metallic rose gold), At First Sight (clear with gold pearl), Valencia (bright pink coral), Red District (vivid red), Conquest (warm pink), Baden Baden (deep aubergine), Santo Domingo (mauve pink). The collection also features Cape Town (metallic gold with pink shimmer), Everglades (black with gold pearl) and Mississippi (deep black cherry).
POWERMATTE LIP PIGMENT
Powermatte Lip Pigment glides on with ease. The smooth liquid texture gives fully saturated opaque coverage and a true matte finish. The custom doe-foot applicator allows for easy precision while the formula provides long lasting, smudge resistant wear. The collection includes 5 new shades ranging from neutral to bold.
VELVET LIP GLIDE
Velvet Lip Glide fully coats lips in saturated, satin colour with extraordinary comfort. The hybrid lip formula provides a luxurious, long-lasting finish without drying or feeling sticky. Velvet Lip Glide delivers an opaque satin finish and long-lasting wear with a high-impact colour payoff. The collection includes 5 new shades.
The Liquid Lip Collection by NARS will be available from September 2018. Price: CHF 35.30
