I haven’t tried anything from it yet, but here is the NARS Summer 2012 Collection. Looks very sexy, reminds me of a hot, glowy day on a beach in Europe, maybe Spain, maybe Italy. I love the shimmery, icy nudes.

What inspired the NARS 2012 Summer Collection?
I was interested in exploring the interplay of earth tones and shimmers. That
relationship between divergent colors and textures is summed up in our Ramatuelle
Trio Eyeshadow, which combines a silver shade with an apricot and icy peach.
Besides illustrating a fresh take on nudes, the Trio is also just a really chic and
versatile summer palette.
What’s unexpected about the collection?
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.
What are the must-have products of the season?
Besides the Ramatuelle Trio Eyeshadow, I’d say our Never Say Never Velvet Matte
Lip Pencil. The lilac rose color looks great with tanned skin, and the matte finish is
the perfect complement to a shimmery lid or glowing complexion. I also love our
Trouville Nail Polish because a seashell pink nail is a really fun summer accessory.
As the face of the Summer Color Collection, how does Ginta represent the
When made up in the collection’s colors, Ginta transforms from fresh and girlish
into a strong and sophisticated woman, but with an irreverent playful edge.
The collection will hit next week, April 15, 2012 at narscosmetics.com.
What am I excited about? the Nail Color: Troutville: “The seashell pink nail hue would look right at home on the beaches of the fishing village in the Basse-Normandie region of northwestern France, for which it is named”. I love Normandy I I love this nail color. Perfect!
