I’m not sure if it’s just me being a little jaded, or if cosmetics brands are starting to spread themselves a little thin on quality when they release limited edition or seasonal collections. More so when the colours on offer don’t interest nor excite me very much. I skipped most of the Summer collections this time around because Summer isn’t my thing, and because I found a lot of them boring *gasp* I said the B-word!
With a summer collection created in collaboration with fashion designer Christopher Kane, Nars Cosmetics has released a limited edition range of makeup with what they call “Neoneutral” – Neon colours that are oxymoronically neutral to wear. In some ways, it made sense.
I’d have passed on this collection, if I’m to be honest. There was nothing in there that grabbed my attention. However, I was gifted with a couple of pieces from the collection and much to my surprise, my goodie bag contained Silent Nude blush instead of Starscape (hot pink!) which most other people received. I don’t deny I was a little taken aback but I felt I should therefore share my thoughts on it. If it had been Starscape, then it’d be just more of the same-old-same-old for you right? 😀
Silent Nude, as you can see in the picture above, is a straight neutral blush. So neutral and so beige, I wasn’t sure what I should do with it LOL! Now pink, that’s easy, right? We could all do with a pink blush; but beige? Erm…. Incidentally also, the blushes in the Neoneutral collection represent a new formula. Thinner, sheerer and matte. Well, if you’re wondering how I did with Silent Nude, check out what I think, and if you have an idea on how to wear beige blushes – SHARE! 😀
