Like NARS’ spring 2010 collection, their summer products were again inspired by Catherine Deneuve. This time NARS’ founder, François Nars, looked to Deneuve's role as Sèverine in the movie Belle de Jour, which inspired him to mix bright hues and creamy textures. “Her character is incredibly beautiful and elegant,” says François. “I designed the makeup to bring a natural-looking glow to the skin, while allowing women to have fun with colour. After all, summer is a playful season, nothing should be too complicated!”
NARS Enchanted Blush
I’m typically not a fan of cream blushes, because I find they are smudgy and streaky along my cheeks ... but this is not the case with NARS’ Enchanted blush. I can’t wait until I have a bit more of a tan and can use the soft-peach colour for a natural, luminous glow. I especially love the bit of built-in sparkle in the blush, plus the vitamin-rich formula which is long-lasting, so you shouldn’t have to reapply multiple times a day.

It’s a bronzer and shimmer powder all in one convenient tube, and it will certainly make you sparkle like never before! This multi-purpose product is convenient and fits in my makeup bag wonderfully. One simple swipe on each my cheeks and I have a bronzed, shimmering glow in seconds. Since it's not a powder, I don't need to worry about bronze dust falling all over my shirt; but since I blend it in with my fingers, they need a wash afterwards. The glazed apricot colour is perfect for summer time after days at the beach or out in the sun. Get ready to sparkle!
