New Launches

new launches: nars fall 2016

August 11, 2016

Note: You’ll notice I’ve created a new category for this post, which is essentially a quick preview of upcoming product launches and features iPhone snaps instead of proper product shots. Frankly the messiness of these photos makes me cringe a little, but I’m trying to embrace a more spontaneous approach in the hopes that it’ll allow me to share sneak peeks of new products more immediately.

I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely ladies from NARS Singapore last week and got to preview the many, MANY new products that NARS is launching this fall. Anything linked in this post is already available, but everything else will be split between 2 more launches between now and October. I didn’t have time to play with and swatch everything, but I like to think I covered the standouts!

NARS Fall 2016-4

I’m most excited about the Velvet Lip Glides because they’re such a neat texture – though they’re technically liquid lipsticks and quite pigmented, they have a finish that is more satin/glossy which is so much more flattering on lips than matte liquid lipsticks. Props to NARS for bucking the trend and making a product that works on people other than teenaged instagrammers!

I was generously gifted with some of the products you see here (which you can see on my Instagram) so if there are swatches, reviews or FOTDs you’d like to see with anything please leave me a comment and I will try my very best to accommodate your requests.

      They’re so much nicer than ultra-mattes, in my opinion. My lips can’t take that kind of dryness!
