Happy Friday, everyone!
The Nars Wildfire Collection is new for Spring 2017 and features colour for the eyes, and more subdued tones for the lips. It’s a contrast to the light, pretty, floral-inspired makeup that we usually see this time of year, but it’s still on-trend – especially since aqua and teal shades of eyeshadow are back in style.
My favourite products are the Thessalonique eye palette, because it has two colours that are quite wearable – an icy vanilla base, and a silver-infused taupe/violet. I found that the silver glitter seemed to make it a little difficult to blend, but like most glittery shadows, this is best applied by tapping it on to your lid with your finger-tips.
The other shadow duo is called Chiang Mai Duo and is a contrast of shimmering sea blue and copper.
The Bumpy Ride powder blush is also something that I’m finding myself reaching for again and again. It’s a shimmery coral colour that’s lighter than what I usually wear, but is great for brightening up any collection.
The Asphalt Jungle Lip Gloss is described as a shimmering sangria, and the Aragon Lip gloss is described as red chestnut. There’s also the Kiss Me Stupid Lipstick (burnt sienna) and the Breaking Free Lipstick (coral). I love the shimmering lipgloss – it’s a deeper colour than I normally wear but it’s good for a more formal look.

The collection is available right now at Sephora and Sephora.ca, and will be available at all other Nars retailers February 2017.
