I am still obsessed with the Nars Spring launches which have become a part of my everyday routine and I reviewed the Nars Exposed Collection for Spring here. Nars has launched two face palettes and two lip sets to reveal a smouldering summer glow. The palettes are perfect to add warmth and radiance to cheeks and eyes with a highlighter, bronzer, and four glistening eyeshadows. The lip sets work nicely to line, define, and saturate lips effortlessly with new shades of Velvet Matte Lip Pencils and Satin Lip Pencils.
There are two limited edition Summer 2019 Face palettes called Summer Lights Face Palette and Hot Nights Face Palette. I have been using the Hot Nights Face Palette and swatched below for your reference. The palette has one highlighter shade, one bronzer, and four eye shadows. And all the shades are pigmented, blends beautifully, and the formula is very smooth and lightweight. The staying power, as always with Nars Formula’s, is amazing. All the shades can be used interchangeably as you please, I use the bronzer and highlighter shades as an eye shadow too.
Below are the shades in the Hot Nights Face Palette (Starting from Left to Right, Top to Bottom):
Pacific – Iridescent pink beige
Paradis – Iridescent soft violet
Maeva – Shimmering cranberry
Black Sand – Shimmering deep purple
Tautira – Shimmering rose gold
Mannihi – Matte midtone bronze
I have been drawn to more pink and blue family of colors this summer and the shades in this palette are all something I can see myself wearing during the day and night in Summer. A little swipe of color with my finger on the lids works nicely for everyday and also great with brush for one or more shades on the lids. The formula works nicely both dry and wet.
Summer 2019 Edit – Heat of the Night has two lip sets – Velvet Matte Lips Pencils and Satin Lip Pencils. I have swatched two out of four from both the sets. Velvet Matte Lip Pencils work to line, define and fill the lips with impactful pigment and matte finish. The formula is not new to me, I have few in rotation always – it is very lightweight, feels like I have nothing on my lips, does not dry out my lips, stays on for some good amount of time. The rich pigments provide a medium to full coverage with a velvety, matte finish. Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are available in 32 shades.
Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Good Times – warm beige nude
Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Promiscuous – pink orchid
The Satin Lip Pencils, with the same shape, packaging, and intensity – work to line, define, and fill the lips with colour. The formula is buildable and the finish is satiny. It does not dry out the lips, staying time is amazing. Lips feel hydrated, is very lightweight, and is comfortable. Satin Lip Pencils are available in 20 shades.
Satin Lip Pencil Balboa – rose brown
Satin Lip Pencil Exbury – light pink rose
