Beauty Fix: Nars Summer 2012 Collection

Nars Summer 2012

>> The just-revealed Nars Summer 2012 collection features nine new products in a mix of tawny and cool hues that are sure to look just as chic on the beach as on city streets.

There's an eyeshadow palette called Ramatuelle that features three soft neutrals (matte apricot, silver, and shimmery pale gold), while an eyeshadow duo, Marie-Galante, is a dramatic combination of sparkling violet and inky, iridescent blue. Blush comes in the form of a burnished peach called Liberté, and the two new colors for lips are each bold and deep: Vendanges is a juicy grape, while Moscow is a matte red hue. "I was interested in exploring the interplay of earth tones and shimmers," creative director François Nars explained. "I think at first glance, the combination of orchid, blue, strawberry red, and seashell pink can sound and appear quite delicate and innocent, but our version of these colors and the way we combine them results in a look that's more fun and edgy."

The entire collection will be available April 15 at —  until then, preview it all right here.
