Women over 40 beauty, Skincare, Fashion, Fitness and Lifestyle



It’s hard to believe the Summer Collections are starting to come out already, especially when I feel like Spring hasn’t even come yet.  But they are at least giving me hope that there’s warmth to come and for now, I’ll give you the new releases so you can determine what are your priorities for your summer makeup purchases.


NARS is celebrating their 15 year anniversary this year.  It was such an innovative line back then and still is today.   Francois Nars does not ‘color inside the lines’ and his line has proven that.   This new Summer Collection is no exception.  Inspired by the tropics are beautiful hues of coral, bronzes, golds  and a pop of blue like the ocean.


My favorite piece in the collection is this Irresisteblement Bronzing Powder.  A beautiful bronzer that is a golden terracotta shade.  It just may have to be my go-to bronzer this year.


Scorching Sun Duo Eye Shadow.  The glazed apricot and radiant orange shades are reminiscent of the summer sun.   They are beautiful shades that are surprisingly wearable, so give them a try.


Tropic Single Eye Shadow is a vibrant teal/ocean blue with flecks of silver.   Ladies, I’m saying it once.   Not wearable for women over 40.  THE only possibility is to use it as a liner, which may be difficult with the flecks.  However, it is a beautiful shade of blue, lets just admire from afar.

The rest of the line (shown top) is finished off with lips and nails.   The lip colors Falbala – a high shine bronzy rose and Outsider – a deep glistening coral.  They both are beautiful shades.

Belize, a pale pinky mauve with gold shimmer lip gloss and a pink amber lip liner Tonga along with nail color Adalita, a pearlescent pink finish the summer line.  

I think I’ll search the net for a tropical vacation now.
