NARS Spring 2017 – Wildfire Collection

NARS Spring 2017 – WILDFIRE Collection

It’s that time of the year – all the makeup brands are introducing their amazing new lineups for a fresh start to the year!

We earlier reviewed the glam-tastic MAC collaboration with Mariah Carey. The cosmetic collection was every bit as sparkly as the glittery crooning Diva herself, and we loved it! Let’s have a look at what NARS has to offer with their SPRING 2017 collection – “WILDFIRE”.

NARS WILDFIRE focuses on confident shades, bold yet earthy tones. We are loving the funky berries, dreamy violets, rosy hued earthy nudes and muted rich blues. Have a look below at what’s new at NARS!

The collection features 11 items; 2 eyeshadow duos, 2 lipsticks, 4 velvet shadow sticks, 1 powder blush and 2 lip glosses.

Eyeshadow Duos

Thessalonique –  Lovers of purple tones will love this! NARS describes the pair as “Iridescent Seashell Pink / Iridescent Violet Smoke”, which is an apt description.

Chiang Mai – Described as “Shimmering Sea Blue / Copper”. An unorthodox pair? Definitely, but we have to admit, the pair does look good together. We’d love to try it on.

NARS Fall 2016: Powerfall!

NARS Fall 2016 collection is here, and it focuses on the most powerful message of all: ‘Accentuate. Never imitate.’

NARS Fall 2016 Header

Makeup is all about focusing on what your best features are, and how to feature more prominence on your best features. No one has eyes like yours, and the other person does not have your skin tone. Your lips accent, your cheekbones, your eye shape – they are all uniquely you!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in “BERLIN” – Review | Just4Girls.pk

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in “BERLIN” – Review

Matte lipstick has made a huge comeback this past year, and is going to continue to reign in 2017. Every makeup brand from Wet n’ Wild to Dior has jumped on the opportunity to create the perfect matte lip. Even though I love the above mentioned makeup brands there has been one clear standout matte lipstick for me – NYX. Not only did they crush the competition with the formula of their matte lipstick but also created the most diverse range of colors.

With the winter months still brewing around for a while, I am continuously inspired by the dark rich colors that are associated with it. All I have been wearing for the holiday season are shades like: deep burgundies, burnt oranges, and rich umbers.

In particular a shade of umber that is my absolute favorite is Berlin, a soft matte cream by NYX. This deep warm hue accents not only my eyes but also the sun kissed parts of my hair. The best part of this matte lipstick is that it transitions perfectly from day to night. The lightweight formula does not smudge and stays on for hours! I really have to commend NYX for enabling me to create the flawless matte lips.

Don’t miss out on your chance of wearing Berlin this winter and being a sure standout! Available now in Pakistan exclusively on Just4Girls.pk.

 

Editor’s Favs: Best Lipsticks for Desi Skintones (I)

Best Lipsticks for Desi Skintones

Universal Matte Shades Edition 

These shades flatter all skintones, no matter how dark or light. In the first part of this series (Best Lipsticks for Desi Skintones), we are focusing on natural, matte shades.
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Walkyrie”The NARS Velvet Matte formula is unique. It feels utterly weightless, silky and hugs your lips like second skin 😍

The shade performs as a warm spice shade on fair and medium skin tones, and a tangy warm nude on darker skin tones.

Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hr Lipstick in “Lasting Chestnut”One of my favorites! Lasting chestnut is a taupe nude shade with pink undertones (similar to MAC WHIRL). It is yet another shade that everyone can comfortably wear. For fair to medium skin tones will give a cool brown shade, whereas for darker skintones results in a stunning nude shade.

NYX Velvet Matte Lipstick in “Charmed”Recent addition to my favorites category, Charmed is described by NYX as a “brick red with purple undertones”. On fair skintones it definitely gives that exact shade – whereas on medium skin tones it is a cross between rose and brick red. On darker skintones it performs more as a flesh nude shade.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil: Red Square

wp-1480533747397.jpg

I consider myself a strong person – independent, I study, work, cook, shop. All rounder!

I have a weakness though. I’m a hopeless fan of a gorgeous Red lipstick.

Crimson, Vermillion, Scarlet, Ruby, Sangria, Garnet, Cherry. All reds. I adore reds.

So it is little wonder that when I came across this beauty – NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square, I nearly lost my mind with awe.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ‘Red Square’

The shade is gorgeous, a brilliantly pigmented vermilion – a bright red leaning into orange; suitable for everyone from fair to medium skin tones. The formula is weightless, oh so light – but the color is intense in just one swipe.

In short, the shade is love. Makeup lovers – specially red lippie fanatics, need to add it to their stash!
