Alright, so I know that we don’t usually post about collection launches – but this is one of the exceptions, mmkay?
I’ve recently become fixated on the new NARS hilighter, New Order. With the cult-fave Albatross, it’s one of just two products listed on the NARS “Hilighting Blush Powder” page, but it sounds so very… blush-like! It’s listed as a soft pink with gold and silver shimmer, and because I haven’t seen any swatches yet, I really have no idea what effect it would give (though my guess is that it will look somewhat like a more finely-milled version of Lancome Glowy Ballerine).
In and of its own, I don’t actually think it’s that interesting – but I do think it’s a rather curious choice to be NARS’ only other hilighter. I would have expected something more a long the lines of a gold or a peach, first, though I suppose they do have quite a range of liquid and creme illuminators for that purpose.
P.S. Here’s the rest of the NARS Summer 2011 details:
- EYES: Trio Eyeshadow in Cap Ferrat, Duo Eyeshadow in Dogon and Exotic Dance, and Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Queen
- LIPS: Lipgloss in Wonder, Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Bolero, Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage, and Lipstick in Mayflower
- CHEEKS: Blush in New Order
- NAILS: Nail Lacquer in Écume and Kismet
The eye and nail products are all limited edition, the lip products are all permanent, and the hilighting blush is being introduced as a new permanent item.
