NARS Summer 2009 Collection

As NARS turns fifteen this year, the brand’s commitment to creating products that defy convention remains unwavering. The NARS woman has never been content to fade into the background, and this summer is no exception. “The look for the summer 2009 collection is sophisticated, but colorful,” says Francois Nars, founder and creative director of NARS cosmetics. That translates to glowing, sun-kissed skin, shimmering peachy-hued lips and high-drama eyes in deep, shimmering tones of metallic-flecked topaz or sparkling azure. Whether your vision of perfect summer conjures up images of Morocco’s kaleidoscopic bazaars, the pristine Art Deco structures of Ocean Drive or the endless white sand beaches and cerulean waters of a Caribbean island, this season’s vivid yet versatile color palette is the perfect complement.

Collection Includes:

  • Tropic Single Eyeshadow $22
  • Scorching Sun Duo Eyeshadow $32
  • Irresistiblement Bronzing Powder $30
  • Falbala and Outsider Lipstick $24
  • Belize Lipgloss $24
  • Tonga Lip Pencil $20
  • Adelita Nail Polish $16

Temptalia Asks You

What are your makeup staples? What specific products do you constantly use? (If you have too many, think of maybe 10!)

Temptalia's Answer.

Studio Fix Fluid foundation, 182 buffer brush, Mario Badescu cleanser, Volcanic Ash Exfoliator, Kate Somerville Oil Free Moisturizer pretty much top my list.

This is a look from a couple of weeks ago :) I’m sick with some sort of nasty cold, so I’ve not been so keen on wearing makeup these past few days. Hopefully the bug will move on to someone else to plague soon enough. I hope everybody’s week has been treating them well–two more days ’til the weekend, yay!

Happy April Fool’s Day :)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (neutral base), Rose Blanc eyeshadow (white-yellow), Texture eyeshadow (light reddish brown), Shroom eyeshadow (neutral highlighter), Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Stash (antique gold), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Honey High-Light Powder (peachy-gold)
  • Lips: Chanel Monte Carlo lipstick (sheer coral), Chanel Tangerine Dream Aqualumiere Gloss (coral)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush), 214 (smudge brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Rose Blanc = Nylon

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base. On the lid, apply Rose Blanc eyeshadow using the 239. Apply Texture eyeshadow to the crease with the 226. Sweep Shroom eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Stash Liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Honey High-Light Powder using the 129. Apply Monte Carlo lipstick to lips, and then top with Chanel Tangerine Dream Aqualumiere Gloss for color and shine.
