Nars x Christopher Kane

Nars x Christoper Kane by What Laura did Next
Be still my beating heart. One of my favourite beauty brands NARS has teamed up with the super talented British Designer, Christopher Kane to produce NEONEUTRAL - a collection made up of neon and nude shades. 

Now I've got to admit when I first saw the NARS x Christopher Kane collaboration, I was a little wary. Mainly because the colours are very bright - something I usually stay away from. HOWEVER, after having a little play and seeking advice from the very helpful lady on the NARS counter in Selfridges, I can honestly say each piece I tried is very wearable. As the tagline says; Unexpectedly bold. Shockingly natural - completely true.

Lip Gloss in Mezmer
A sheer neon watermelon colour, this Lip Gloss is my favourite product from the collection. It is totally wearable throughout the day, and can be applied with just one slick for a sheer pink glow - perfect for a daytime look or, it can be built up for a bolder look for night time. 

Lip Gloss in Nucleus
Described as 'Seashell Pink' this is the perfect nude Lip Gloss, without making you look washed out. Again, it is a shade that can be used from day to night and, the colour really stays.  

Both glosses I tried have a gorgeous, creamy feel to them and are not sticky in the slightest which, really surprised me. 

Eye Shadow Palette in Parallel Universe
This product was the one I was scared of the most - bright, metallic colours and very sparkly! This is something a 14-year-old Laura would've obsessed over back in the day. Before purchasing, I asked the very lovely NARS makeup artist in Selfridges to show me how to apply it without looking like a Christmas decoration and, I was so surprised. It can be used for shading, lining and highlighting the eyes, as well as being applied dry or with a damp brush for a stronger look. The colours are gorgeous on. 

If you're looking for something a little different to your usual make up, then this collection is perfect for that.
