Two of those products were the Wanted Eye Shadow Palette and a selection of Afterglow Lip Balm shades, which brings me to my actual point: to tell you about the new NARS Afterglow Collection, and that we got the details on exclusively from François Nars himself.
In addition to the palettes, the Afterglow Collection also consists of a limited-edition silver cushion compact for its Naturally Radiant Foundation and a shade extension of the brand’s much-loved Afterglow Lip Balm — its sheer, tinted lip color that originally debuted to much acclaim in the brand’s first Orgasm Collection back in 2018 (did I mention I’m also a NARS historian? ).
The collection, which is all about bringing more shine and luminosity into your makeup bag, includes, among several other items, new shades of the Afterglow Lip Balm and an eye shadow palette that has everything I love about the Wanted palette, but in a very different variety of shades.
"With the Afterglow Collection, I wanted to give our fans versatile pieces to add to their makeup wardrobes that would help them to achieve just that — a beautifully radiant look," Nars said of his inspiration behind the range, adding that "a luminous glow makes skin look irresistible".
It includes a similar combination of utilitarian neutrals (in this case chocolate browns and a unique soft apricot hue) and unexpected pops of color (like a fuchsia-burgundy and a shimmering coral), as well as the same assortment of finishes: mattes, foiled metallics, iridescent shimmers, and one epic chunky glitter (it’s twinkly bronze in this palette, a rosy-pink in the Wanted one).
The Afterglow Collection includes the existing Orgasm and Clean Cut shades, but then offers up six new hues, including classic NARS lipstick shades like Dolce Vita and Deep Throat.
This eye shadow palette is gorgeous. ✨ https://t.co/H1d8NQ36jy— POPSUGAR Beauty (@POPSUGARBeauty) January 30, 2020
