‘Deep Throat’, ‘Orgasm’ and ‘Strip Tease’ are all best selling product lines by edgy New York-born brand NARS. Now the less-than-conventional label has released its latest Spring 2013 Color Collection featuring a rainbow of shades that wouldn’t look amiss in David Bowie’s makeup bag.
This collection will shock, seduce and turn heads. Take the new Mad Mad World Duo Eyeshadow in Vivid Cyan (bright blue) and Parakeet Green (sea green). These conflicting shades can be worn either on their own in bold block colours, or blended together with contour shading for a smouldering look. The micro-fine powder offers strong, crease-free colour that glides on smoothly and stays intense all day.
Team your planet Earth-coloured lids with the new Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Corcovado, a beautiful golden shade. This jumbo-sized pencil is versatile enough to be used either as an eyeshadow or as a liner. We suggest you use this bold, creamy pencil to highlight the lower lash-line so it contrasts vividly with your upper lid for a real ’80s look.
Of course, Bowie wouldn’t be Bowie without those exaggerated cheekbones and NARS certainly doesn’t disappoint in the blusher department. Team your wild eyes with Seduction Blush, a deep sangria shade of red exclusive to the spring 13 collection. Apply generously to the hollows of your cheeks for high-intensity definition, or blend carefully for a more natural look.
Complete your arresting look with Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Cytere, a soft metallic rose. This glossy jumbo pencil is created with the latest in moisturising technology, offering moisture-rich hyaluronic spheres which promise to soften and plump lips, making them look fuller.
You can buy this whole collection, including products we haven’t mentioned, for £158 over at NARS Cosmetics.
