The Nars Summer 2016 Under Cover collection is an absolute stunner. From fabulous packaging, to gorgeous textures and beautiful colours, it is ticking all of the boxes for me! Here’s a close up look at it, with lots of photos and swatches. Enjoy! The collection is available to order online HERE.
I told you the packaging was gorgeous! It is so chic and summery – just looking at it makes me feel like I am pool-side somewhere fabulous! Well almost – the current London heatwave is helping! They are original illustrations by contemporary artist Konstantin Kakanias.

Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Pool Shark & Topless:
Both the lip colours dry down to a soft matte which lasts very well indeed. I love the blushers – particularly Sexual Content. And although I am not a blue shadow kind of gal, it’s really very pretty. Topless is a ‘your lids but better’ shade and also doubles well as a soft highlighter. I used a wet brush to apply it.
