Back in April, Nars launched their limited edition make up collaboration with French it girl, Charlotte Gainsbourg. For those of you who don’t know her, she is the daughter of famed musician and song writer, Serge Gainsbourg and British fashion icon Jane Birkin (a la Hermes Birkin). Fashion and cool run deep in this family. Charlotte Gainsbourg seemed to have inherited the best of both her parents – she has that effortless chic French girl thing going on, plus she is an accomplished musician and actress. I am a huge fan which is why when I heard about the collab, I couldn’t wait to check it out. I finally made it to the Nars counter at Blue Mercury last week and I had so much fun playing with their new products. When I first saw the color palette of the collection, I was surprised because it seemed a bit dark for summer, but don’t let the colors fool you. It shows much lighter on the face and has a more natural effect. The products I fell for were the Hydrating Glow Tint which will be my new summer “glow” to. This tint offers a lighter coverage than foundation – a nice alternative for summer, and as the name suggests, just right dash of glow. Two other winners were the lip gloss in Ephelide (antique rose) and the matte cheek and lip stick in Adele. This gives the appearance of the perfect pink flushed cheeks which seems to be trending at the moment. Their midnight blue eye liner is another great addition and a perfect compliment, especially to light colored eyes.
