For Spring, NARS presents Shanghai Lily

The ultimate dichotomy of innocence and seduction, NARS Spring 2008 mystifies with a mélange of hues delicate yet robust, creating the modern hybrid of feminine temptation.

OMG. You are going to love this collection! If you think the colors look good on your computer screen, wait until you see them on your skin (below, you can see the products on my skin)! The velvety shadows glide on like, well, velvet – while Dolce Vita Lip Gloss and Belle de Jour Lip Pencil are classics reinvented in new formulations.

Here’s what I’m wearing (that’s my arm):

Left column
Alahambra Eye Shadow Duo – golden champagne and metallic rose mist

Middle column
Top: Success Lipstick (burnt sienna semi-matte)
Bottom: Manhunt Lipstick (sheer poppy red)

Right Column
Top: Dolce Vita Lip Gloss (sheer dusty rose)
Middle & Bottom: Stolen Kisses/Pampa Lip Stain Gloss (sparkling caramel pink/nutmeg with a touch of shimmer)

As you can see, these colors truly take you from day to night. There’s nothing garish in this collection – but don’t be fooled; Shanghai Lily is anything but a shrinking violet. This is but a sampling of the products; check the website for a complete list.

Spoiled Pretty Prediction: Like its predecessor, Dolce Vita Lip Gloss is going to fly off shelves – so you’d be wise to get yours sooner rather than later.
