NARS has been on the most glorious neutral kick lately and I am here for it!!! Between the Fever Dream face palettes that quickly became the palette I wear almost every day (see them reviewed here), the Skin Deep Eyeshadow palette that I reviewed here and now their new summer collection. There are 2 new limited edition face palettes РHot Nights and Summer Lights which both contain 4 eyeshadows, one highlighter and a bronzer. The colors in each are super wearable and perfect for the spring and summer.
Summer Lights Face Palette, Hot Nights Face Palette
I personally love the Summer Lights palette and find myself gravitating towards that one more, though the Hot Nights palette is equally as beautiful. Both palettes contain mostly shimmer shades with only one or two matte shades mixed in but the shimmer is not over the top and suitable to wear during the day. The bronzers have a beautiful golden undertone and don’t look too orange on the skin. If you are pale like myself, the Summer Lights palette bronzer is a bit lighter and easier to wear, while the Hot Nights palette bronzer is too dark for me though would be beautiful on anyone with a medium or olive skin tone.
Swatches from left to right: Exbury, Giusti, Take Me Home, Dance Fever, Balboa, Promiscuous, Good Times, Golden Gate
Also included in the launch are new shades of the Satin and Velvet Matte Lip Pencils. There is a mix of coral, rose and pink shades with only two slightly more nude shades. I personally loved Exbury and Giusti the most as they give a punch of color to the lips! I’ve always loved both the Satin and Velvet Matte formulas but if your lips are more dry, I would stick with the Satin Lip Pencils.
