During the month of July, NARS Cosmetics is taking over Space NK Soho. I was lucky enough to get to visit the pop-up to try their new Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows, 12 shades that can be worn dry for a soft look or wet for a dramatic and dense finish. During July, these are only available at Space NK but from August will be on sale nationwide. The eyeshadows retail at £22.00.
When I think of NARS, I think of high-intensity, pigment-rich colour, colour and more colour! My NARS glossy raspberry-coloured lip gloss is a permanent fixture in my handbag so I was excited to visit the pop-up and be inspired to live more colourfully in my make-up routine.
NARS has been around for quite some time, founded in New York in 1994 by make-up artist and photographer François Nars, who remains the artistic director today.
I was given a NARS makeover and smoky eye with the new Dual-Intensity shadows, using Callito (icy pink silver) on the lid, Phoebe (deep shimmering amethyst) on the bridge and Subra (black orchid) as the dark smoky finish.
Another fab product I fell in love with? The Vanilla Radiant Creamy Concealer #40. I will be adding this to my wishlist.
