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.

This is a limited edition collection inspired by the French Riviera, so if you see anything you like, grab it. I particularly love NARS’ Dual Intensity formulation – it can be used wet and dry and the finish is always smooth and flawless.

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.

The limited edition Nars Summer 2016 has just launched. The collection is available to order online HERE.

  1. Seashell? Perhaps you mean Topless? Maybe you ‘borrowed’ the name from Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea eye palette, haha!

    1. ha! I know – I keep saying it because that’s how they describe the shade. I even made the mistake on snapchat!
