    NARS Summer 2012

    Hello everyone.

    Here are the information available about the summer 2012 collection. Available April 13th on NARS websites, later in counters.


    (left)
    Liberté Blush - burnished apricot
    Buenos Aires Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil - nude beige pink
    Never Say Never Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - lilac rose
    Calabria Soft Touch Shadow Pencil - shimmering plum
    Trouville Nail Polish - seashell pink

    (right)
    Vendanges Lipstick - sheer grape
    Moscow Pure Matte Lipstick - strawberry red
    Ramatuelle Trio Eyeshadow - silver / icy peach / matte apricot [Limited edition]
    Marie Galante Duo Eyeshadow - iridescent orchid / regal blue




    The Summer 2012 campaign was designed and photographed by NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars. Once again, the inimitable Ginta Lapina personifies the look.
    To begin, St. Moritz Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF30/PA+++ was applied to the center of the face with the fingertips and blended outward, then set with Eden Loose Powder to create an immaculate complexion. To lend the skin a light bronzed look, Laguna Bronzer was dusted onto the face in the shape of a ‘3’, starting at the forehead, swept on to the cheek, and then along the jawline. The apples of the cheeks were warmed with Liberté Blush and the face further defined by softly dusting Taos Blush along the hairline.
    A mixture of the silver and icy peach shades of Ramatuelle Trio Eyeshadow were brushed onto the lid and blended up into the crease. The apricot shade of the Trio was added in to the crease, with the silver shade swept along the lower lash line. The upper and lower lids were lined with Via Veneto Larger Than Life Long- Wear Eyeliner. After curling the lashes with an eyelash curler, two coats of Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara were brushed on to the lashes.
    Finally, the lips were lined and filled with Borneo Lip Liner Pencil—blending with a finger to soften the color. Moscow Pure Matte Lipstick was applied, then topped with Risky Business Lip Gloss for shine.

    PS: She is wearing Trouville Nail Polish on her nails.

    Ha! I finally found the summer thread! lol

    Thanks for the information!
    By the way, it looks like the summer collection is awesome!!!
    I think I'll def. get the duo because blue/violet shadows are one of my favorite colors.

    Are they all lip pencils? or one/some of them is/are shadow pencil?
    And is it a blush? or bronzer? or maybe a single eyeshadow?

    Hehe, you're welcome.

    I have no idea what each pencil do!
    I assume the middle one is a velvet gloss lip pencil, because it "looks" glossy.
    As for the bottom one, I'd say it's a soft touch shadow pencil.

    I'm always disapointed at their trio eyeshadows, but I think the duo eyeshadows are usually awesome!!

    Yes, I agree with you.
    Besides, I think they really love red/burgendy/hot pink lipsticks sooooo much, so that's why the middle one could be a lip pencil.lol

    The single eyeshadow reminds me of New York which is another NARS one because it looks like reddish brown.

    single thing looks more like a bronzer/blush than an eyeshadow but i might be wrong

    I agree with you Monsy, I think it's a blush or a bronzer. It looks like it's the color Ginta Lapina is wearing on her cheeks.

    I'd say the top pencil is a velvet matte lip pencil, the middle one a velvet gloss lip pencil, and the bottom one a soft touch shadow pencil.


    Also, NARS summer collections are usually released in May.

    I know this is an incredible shock... I love the shadow duo and I need it. The trio also looks really interesting. I'll have to see the lip products, but I'm hoping they're not too brown for me. But yeah, that duo is MINE. Purples rule.

    Trio, bronzer/blush and the top pencil, they all look like peachy/orange/brown colors which always don't suit me.
    Whenever I put these colors on my face, it looks really muddy. Soooooooo sad.

    I really wonder what color of the lipstick is. On the pic, It looks like brownish wine or sth.

    Thanks for sharing! Those polishes look gorgeous back lit like that, like they're glowing.

    damn that blush looks so dull for a summer blush! :O
    NC/NW10 but use Temptu airbrush with a little white mixed in pod
    My Pink Face: Acne prone combination skin, sensitive eyes (mostly wear glasses), dry lips
    Make Up Priorities: Mascara, foundation, highlight, bright lips, contour (bronzer), blush, wash of color on lids
    Colors: for eyes=>neutral, for lips=>neonish pinks, purple, red, for blush=>peachy, purple

    Here is another picture of the NARS-Thakoon nail polishes. They all look awesome, but I would have loved a bright green color!

    Those look so brilliant and lovely! I kind of want to get all of them, so that I can keep them together like in the photo! I can't wait to hear more information about the summer collection for certain.

    I'm hopeful too. Nars seems to put almost everything on their web site, so we might well get it that way. I didn't realise about the spices, but I tried googling and I think you're right. Cool!

    Ha, I thought the same thing!
    The eyeshadow duo is called Marie Galante, and the Soft Touch Shadow Pencil is called Calabria.

    i wonder if i can phone the bleecker street store and order the blkr gloss at the same time as lal mirchi...

Lal Mirchi will probably be available there as well, since the 413 BLKR collection is available online for Europeans. I think the names are spices, yes. The colors remind me of the Holi (Festival of Colors) in India. Ha, I thought the same thing! The eyeshadow duo is called Marie Galante, and the Soft Touch Shadow Pencil is called Calabria. *
    I'll def. get the duo!! By the way, do you know which one the shadow pencil is? Is it the lavendar one?
