“The New Edge Of Pink”
in New Attitude* from Selfridges&Co – £22.95
The latest Spring collection from NARS is filled with pink shades aplenty! An exclusive to Selfridges, the Final Cut makes up of four satin lip pencils, four matte finish blushes and a gorgeous illuminator. With it’s romantic, pretty pink colours, it feels rather perfect for Valentine’s day gifting (hint, hint boys!). If you’re anything like me, you’ll be delighted to receive make-up for all occasions. It is what I ask for my birthdays and Christmas, and of course, Valentine’s Day (even if it’s a Val Day gift to myself!) especially now as I’ve decided to experiment with more colours.
The very latest addition in my make-up collection is the beautiful NARS blush in New Attitude, a cherry blossom pink. For the longest time ever, I have always gone for orange-toned blushers which gives a natural flush of colour to my cheeks, but for the past few months, I have been experimenting with pinker shades. It doesn’t look as natural as peachy colours but I think pink blushers gives me a younger, fresher look, especially if I’m having a good skin day! New Attitude is really pretty and it’s going to look great during Summer when I wear lighter coloured outfits.
This NARS product doesn’t let me down, New Attitude is highly pigmented and long lasting. I only need a few effortless sweeps for it to add a good amount of colour, but if you like to apply blushers quite heavy then this can be easily built up, and it goes on to my skin so smoothly so no worries about it going patchy. I think I like this even more than my MAC one, they were my go-to brand for blushers and eyeshadows…until now! NARS has captured my heart! I do love the round shape of the MAC blushers because I find it easier to swirl the brush in it. However, one thing that they do better than MAC is the packaging, it isn’t as clunky and cheap, and these blushers come with a mirror! I don’t like small mirrors but it makes it handy to have in your bag so you don’t have to take another pocket size mirror with you. This is a matte finish blusher, so there’s absolutely no shimmer to this at all but the illuminator will provide a healthy glow if that’s the look you prefer. My current choice of highlighter is either Smashbox Halo Wand or Benefit High Beam but the NARS Adelaide look so pretty and dreamy!
The Final Cut Collection seems to be sold out on the Selfridges website at the moment but keep your eyes peeled for when it’s back!
