NARS 2010 Summer Collection and Swatches

I met up with representatives of NARS Cosmetics and some fellow beauty bloggers last week to see the NARS 2010 Summer Collection. NARS Cosmetics has a great selection of new products for this collection, including new primers, new lip items, and some very neat multiple tints that I will be covering separately. Today looks at the new eye shadows, blush and multiple bronzer.

For eye shadow, NARS Duo Cream Eyeshadow Burn It Blue NARS 2010 Summer Collection and Swatches is simply gorgeous. It is extremely pigmented and I love how the duo cream shadows wear. They are cream to powder, so they smooth on beautifully, but then dry so that they have staying power. The swatch doesn’t show just how luminous the lighter of the two shades is. It really glows, without looking overly sparkly.  If you wear blue shadow, this is a must have in my opinion. Heck, I don’t wear blue shadow and am thinking about starting just based on this item!

There is also a pretty new cream to powder blush: NARS Cream Blush Enchanted NARS 2010 Summer Collection and Swatches. The blush also wears nicely and is a very flattering peachy shade. Think of a cream and lighter intensity version of NARS Orgasm.

Swatches of Nars Burn it Blue and Enchanted Cream Blush are below (the blush swatch is above the eye shadow):

Also included in the NARS Summer Collection are a dark brown cream eye shadow which is also great for eye lining, NARS Cream Eye Shadow Cayenne NARS 2010 Summer Collection and Swatches, and a new cream to powder multiple that is perfect for creating a bronzed look, NARS The Multiple Lamu. NARS 2010 Summer Collection and Swatches The multiples are quite buildable and blendable, so you can wear the makeup with high pigment or blend it out for a much more sheer look than what is shown in the swatch. Swatches of both products are below, with the Cayenne swatch first and the Lamu swatch second.

The Summer Collection also had a pretty new nail polish: NARS Nail Polish Versailles NARS 2010 Summer Collection and Swatches. I didn’t get a chance to swatch it, but here it is in the bottle. I love champagne nails, so I might pick this polish up next time I am at Sephora.

Nars also has some great new Multiple Tints and two new primers that I just love. I’ll cover those in separate posts this week and next week. In addition, they have new lip items, including NARS Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatments NARS 2010 Summer Collection and Swatches that are great tinted balms with sun protection. To see those, head on over to Girl Gloss: NARS Lip Treament Balms.

  1. This Nars collection looks great. I just hope they put in some “sun-protecting” elements on their cosmetics. After all, it’s prepared for summer wear. =D

    Hi Glen! NARS did include SPF 15 in their new lip treatment products.

  3. I really want to try the new summer multiple tints especially beverly hills. I really wanted to see swatches of this collection,, but your swatches are horibble! Why would nars send you something for free?

    Hi Amanda. The above swatches were taken at the Nars event where I had only my iPhone available and the light was not ideal. In any event, they are still quite representative of what the shades look like in standard indoor light–something that I hope is useful to people and is certainly better than providing no swatches at all. Only a couple of items were provided free and I may reswatch those at a later time in sunlight. I will be covering the tints at a later date, but do not have the shade Beverly Hills. I did swatch it at the event, but it will not be any higher quality than what you see here. If you would like to see the shades in stores, they are available at Sephora. Nars is also holding more events, so I imagine that more bloggers with be swatching these items.
