NARS Cosmetics Introduces New Products For Spring 2014

Courtesy of NARS

NARS announced today, March 13, the launch of two fabulous new products for Spring 2014. NARS Contour Blush and a 16-piece Artistry Brush Collection will be added to the brand’s extensive lineup of must-have products for the season.

Contour Blush ($42) is the ultimate essential in makeup artistry and the secret weapon to creating natural-looking definition with a luminous finish. The blush duo, available in three sets, features a lighter shade to illuminate the highpoints of the face and a deeper shade to enhance definition. Ultra-smooth, lightweight texture lends itself to a luminous finish and the specially designed contouring formula visual depth and dimension in a single swipe.

Contour Blush Shades:

  • Olympia - Ivory/Rose
  • Paloma - Pink beige/Deep rose
  • Gienah - Honey/Amber
Tip: To create the perfect contour on cheeks, apply the deeper shade of the Contour Blush to the hollows of the cheek and along the hairline, sweep the light shade across the cheekbone toward the temple to soften and highlight. Finish the look with a pop of your favorite blush shade on the apples of the cheek.

François Nars states,” You cannot achieve good makeup without good tools.” And with that in mind, NARS introduces a 16-piece Artistry Brush Collection. From base to bristle, this comprehensive collection features an exquisite design conceived by Founder and Creative Director François Nars and Fabien Baron, of New York design firm Baron & Baron. 

Each brush is designed with the finest quality hairs and delicately weighted to provide the necessary balance for a professional and precise makeup application. The custom brush and packaging feature the iconic matte black finish with sharp debossed logo and signature pop of red.
