wearing the new NARS final cut collection on my cheeks and lips
Right now, the only thing that sounds better to me than biscuits, mashed potatoes and buttered corn (I love KFC’s sides!) and my booty on the couch is the NARS final cut collection.

Key words: pink, blushes, lip pencils and illuminators. a růžová.

Grabby hands! I haz them.

In final Cut, a limited edition release coming arriving next month, NARS re-imagines pink lips and cheeks with modern femininity. like @ss-kicker boots worn below a frilly lace dress, the colors are edgy and fierce.

The collection includes four Blushes, four Satin Lip Pencils (my favorite formula in the NARS lip product line) and one shimmery liquid Illuminator. and yes, pink.

Lots and lots of pink.

The nine-piece NARS final cut collection…

Sex fantasy Blush: a pale lavender pink ($29)

New attitude Blush: a cherry blossom pink ($29)

Final cut Blush: a peachy coral ($29)

Love Blush: a tea rose ($29)

Adelaide Illuminator: a shimmering lavender pink ($30)

Stourhead Satin Lip Pencil: a pale lavender pink ($25)

Villa Lante Satin Lip Pencil: a cherry blossom pink($25)

Torres del Paine Satin Lip Pencil: a peachy coral ($25)

Descanso Satin Lip Pencil: a tea rose ($25)

Each of the blushes has a matching lip pencil, with the idea being that you can wear matching sets of coordinating colors together — a lip pencil with its matching blush. Or, of course, you can mix things up and wear any of the colors together. The liquid highlighter opts for everything.

Here are pics and impressions on eight of the nine pieces (I’ll post my thoughts on the fourth blush, final Cut, soon). In a word: beautiful. In two words: absolutely beautiful. and four a lot more words for good luck: incredibly wearable, incredibly flattering.

Sure, bangin’ brights like those in the High seize collection are so, so fun, but give me an everyday matte peachy coral lip or a matte tea rose blush, and I’m one delighted girl.

In this release, I also like how the blushes have matching Satin Lip Pencils, because it takes the guesswork (or energy spent on thought) out of figuring out what to wear with what.

Final cut Blushes

The blushes? MILOVAT. After trying on new Attitude, love and Sex fantasy (oh, my heavens, that name!), I stuck all of them in my bag o’ blushes to wear on the daily.

Yup, even that light lavender pink — Sex Fantasy. I was pleasantly shocked that it showed up on my tan skin. It’s pale but pigmented; I used two layers.

Love, the tea rose blush, reminds me a little of MAC Blushbaby, my greatest MAC blush love. I love it (love Love?), but a word of caution here: love is sheerer and feels slightly denser than the other two final cut blushes I’ve tried.

Cherry blossom pink new attitude is my favorite of these three. Bright, silky and easy to blend, it’s a blast.

Final cut Illuminator

The highlighter? It’s glittery, but wait! — give it a chance. Yes, the silver sparkles are on the bigger side, but no, people seeking to party will probably not ask you for directions to the nearest discotheque while you’re wearing it, because it’s elegant glitter, yo. and I like how it layers on top of foundation and powder products.

Final cut Satin Lip Pencils

Tak. The Satin Lip Pencils. I was stoked to try these because, like I pointed out earlier, the Satins are my absolute favorite formula in the NARS lip product line.

That said, I think that all of the final cut shades are solid except for the lightest one, pale lavender pink Stourhead. It goes on patchy and uneven, making it very tough to pull off (for me).

If you like what you see, you might want to start dropping hints to your boo now to make sure that he/she gets the memo before Valentine’s Day. Say, “Hint-hint, sweetheart! final cut will be available starting February 1 at Nordstrom stores and March 1 online and at NARS bbutiky. ” REKLAMA
