NARS new spring collection is fresh and lovely – everything you want for spring in colors.  There is only one bright red eye shadow, but other than that everything reminds me of soft, pastel and spring.  

Hungry Heart is a bronzing/blush palette with two soft shimmer colors – one as a highlighter and the other for a soft golden pink sand color.    This is simply yummy, and very wearable – not too shimmery.

The eye shadows in the red and vibrant yellow – not so wearable for someone in their 40’s or over, so we’ll leave that to the younger, more daring ages.   But the Egae duo eye shadow is a gorgeous shimmer that is a frosted sage and smoky lilac.   These beauties may be calling my name. 

Hula Hula is another eye shadow duo.  This is in strawberry (soft rose) and hazelnut shades, but not in a shimmer.  These have actual larger glitter particles.   I’m on the fence about this duo – I love the colors, but that glitter may be too much for someone my age.

Give your face a sunkissed touch with The Multiple in one of the four shades that works for your skin tone. 

Finish off your beautiful new spring look with lipstick in Shrinagar.  It’s a sheer metallic raspberry shade.   So yummy.  Not dark like you think it will look on your lips by looking at it in the tube.  It’s a very wearable shade whether you are fair skinned or dark skinned.  Top it off with Sweet Revenge, a pink grapefruit shade of lip gloss, or if you want a real nude look just use the lip gloss.

This NARS spring collection is one of my favorite NARS collections.  In the past I have felt some of the collections had too much that just seemed too daring and youthful for someone in their 40’s and above.  But this one has something for everyone, and a lot to choose from.
