It's not often we review the full collection of beauty brands, but there was something about this collection from NARS that caught our attention from the jump. Known to be one of Black women's go-to semi-luxe brands for beauty, NARS has been one of the leading companies that create some of the most captivating and trendy cosmetics. For Black women, they've been a brand that has been inclusive to darker shades, understanding our undertones and continuously getting it right.
So, it's only natural that we’re completely obsessed over their 2014 Holiday Color Collection, which we’re beyond excited to see Black women playing in. Let's have a little fun, and catch up on the sexiest collection for the seasons ahead.
All of what we could expect for the holiday seasons, NARS plays around with a rich crimson red (Deadly Catch), a soft creamy 'nude' (Adriatic) and a shimmery red with a gold undertone (Femme Fleur). Create with their New formula, the lip colors are all $26. A bit pricey, but well worth it, trust us.
This time around, beauty brands are bringing all the attention upwards. Their shadow collation is all about shimmer and glitter, and range from a lavender (Canberra) to an bronzed green (Gabon).
They almost compliment the lipsticks with a rich red and pink champagne leading the group. But, these glosses are full of color that can stand on their own. If you want a frosted lip to go a long with the wintery season ahead, play around with Soleil D'Orient, a shimmering pink champagne. Add some drama to your puckers with Burning Love, a super bright ruby red. And if those don't satisfy your lipgloss appetite, be the belle of the ball in Corsica, a shimmering pink raspberry, sure to pop on various skin tones.
Deep blues, lilacs and rose, oh my! The polishes are chic, show-stopping colors that will crave attention. Feeling edgy, slap on two coats of Barents Sea, a sparkling deep blue that matches the beautiful oceanic waters. Going for something super pretty? Sherwood is a shimmering violet rose that seems to be the color that looks good on everyone. More of a purple kind of gal? Scoop up the Algonquin shade, perfect for a holiday dinner party.
Now that we’ve given you the rundown on one of my favorite holiday collections, I want you to go out and pick your favorite pieces from the NARS 2014 holiday set, available Oct. 15, at NARS boutiques and narscosmetics.com.
