Of all the seasonal launches in the beauty world, I look forward to spring/summer releases the most. It usually means brands will delve into the rich warm bronze and copper color palettes, soft scents of flowers and coconuts, nourishing oils and a hint of healthy shimmer and glow…and I’m already dreaming of lazing by the beach with palm trees rustling in the soft wind.
Well, NARS definitely tapped into my thoughts with their new Tahiti Bronze collection!
NARS Last Resort Tahiti Bronze Collection 2015
Featuring 3 key products to help you shine your way through the warmer months, they also added fun temporary tattoos to complete the look. Other than the tattoos, this collection is made up of revised versions of some of NARS’s existing favorites.
Monoi Body Glow $59: “Monoï de Tahiti oil is the result of macerating the tiare flower (Tahitian gardenia) in refined coconut extract for at least 10 days, slowly infusing the oil with nutrients as well as a delicate, natural fragrance”. Imagine this nourishing oil glistening with a silky finish on your skin! With each bottle containing a tiare flower in it, this soothing, beautifying oil is a definite treat.
Body Glow $59: Again Monoi Oil being the star ingredient, this bottle of Body Glow has a rich chocolate shimmer mixed in to give the skin a hint of bronze along with that healthy sheen. *Such tinted oils highlight the higher points on the body (just like a highlighter does for the face), drawing attention to tops of the shoulders, collar bones as well as lengthening the arms and the legs.
Tahiti Laguna Bronzing Powder $59: One of my all time favorite bronzers, NARS’ Laguna is a gorgeous shade which is subtle enough to use as an all over bronzer, yet has cool undertones that can also double up as contour powder. Also in this compact is a mini size of NARS’ ever so popular Ita Kabuki brush. It’s perfect for an even dusting of the bronzer as well as chiselling perfect cheekbones.
Temporary Tattoos $35: Last summer’s metallic gold temporary tattoos have been re-invented in traditional black color by NARS. If you’re a fan of delicate temp tattoos which can easily replace jewellery, then these would look so pretty against the bronzed sheen of the products in this gorgeous collection.
