Nars Spring 2010

NARS Spring Collection was inspired by Catherine Deneuve’s look in her role as Lucille in La Chamade.  Confident, Cosmopolitan and Polished.  

Sometimes I see a collection from NARS and think that there is no way I or anyone over 40 could wear anything in the collection.  Too bold and colorful and maybe too daring.   But, as of late, the newest collections seem to have at least some, if not all, of the line that is wearable for those of us over 40.   This collection is one that definitely has some beautiful, wearable shades.   

Some of my favorite pieces in the line are the eyeshadow duo in Kuala Lumpur and Carmague, Cruising lipstick, Easy Lover lip gloss and for a fun punch of color the nail polish Purple Rain – a possible homage to the singer Prince?

I purchased the eyeshadow duo in Kuala Lumpur and love it!  The one shade is a rosy golden shade that is shimmery and the other shade is a pretty boysenberry shade.  Surprisingly I also purchased the lip gloss in Easy Lover.  It may look like a hot Barbie pink, but it goes on so sheer that it just adds a nice pop of color – very pretty when in the doldrums of winter.   I like many of the other colors, but some of those I already had very similar shades so I did not purchase.   

This is a nice, fresh, wearable collection that makes you wish it were Spring instead of February, and a great way to freshen your look.
