The NARS Summer Solstice Collection will launch globally at NARS stockists, but right now, it’s only available at Nordstrom, but they do ship internationally. If you’d like to hear all about this beautiful new collection, keep on reading….
The NARS summer collection is always hotly anticipated each year, and I think this year’s collection might be my favourite NARS summer collection in maybe four or five years – everything looks so beautiful, with a Summer Solstice theme.
The NARS Summer Solstice Collection 2021 includes four different products, one of which is available in two different shades.
There’s a really beautiful bronze theme to the packaging, with a starburst design on both the bronzer compact and the eyeshadow compact. Let’s take a look at the products within the NARS Summer Solstice Collection 2021….
Would it be a NARS collection without an eyeshadow palette? Kicking off the NARS Summer Solstice Collection 2021 with the new NARS Summer Solstice Eyeshadow Palette which is $49, and it’s giving me vibes of the NARS Uninhibited Eyeshadow Palette, with the same format and design.
“These vividly warm shades are formulated with the brand’s Pigment Power Suspension, which delivers incredible color payoff thanks to pigments suspended in an innovative liquid binding system.
Rich and long-wearing, you’ll see high-impact color in just one stroke. The addictive, velvety textures apply easily, blending well to deliver smooth, even color.”
The NARS Summer Solstice Collection 2021 features a bronze, metallic design on the lid, with a starburst design. Inside the palette there are nine shades, including shimmers, mattes and metallics.
In terms of colour stories, this palette is very much a warm palette with pops of gold and burgundy, to help you achieve a multitude of summery eye makeup looks.
- Delirium (metallic rose)
- Dune (matte terracotta brown)
- Morongo (shimmering rose gold)
- Seven Heaven (matte sand)
- Oro Grande (metallic copper brown)
- Seduced (metallic rusted pink)
- Sunstorm (shimmering golden copper)
- Thar (metallic umber)
- Indian Wells (metallic ruby)
It’s a limited edition bronzer brush, made with a soft, dense concentration of synthetic bristles which are designed to both hold and apply the product seamlessly into the skin.
The brush’s angled shape allows it to effortlessly blend cream and powder products into the skin, and the handle features a stunning, metallic bronze sun ray pattern.
The aforementioned Bronzer Brush will work with any cream or powder bronzer, but it was specially designed to go alongside the collection’s NARS Sunkissed Bronzing Cream.
The NARS Sunkissed Bronzing Cream is available in two different shades, and they’re packaged within round, plastic jars, with a metallic lid.
“Nordstrom-exclusive, limited-edition cream-to-powder bronzing hybrid formula with a soft matte finish.
This bronzer delivers sun-kissed warmth to skin. Its velvety, decadent, silky texture blends seamlessly into skin while it blurs imperfections, minimizes the appearance of pores and evens out the complexion.“
Swirl a cream bronzer brush into Sunkissed Bronzing Cream to pick up a moderate amount of product. Gently apply in circular motions to give your complexion a natural-looking, tanned effect.
Laguna is the lightest of the two shades, and Casino is the deeper shade. Casino is a little more cool toned compared to Laguna, but they’d both work well for bronzing both the face and the body.
The last product within the NARS Summer Solstice Collection 2021 is the NARS Summer Solstice Cheek Duo.
No NARS summer collection would be complete without a bronzer and highlighter hybrid, and the Summer Solstice Cheek Duo looks so beautiful.
“Bronzing Powder creates the perfect sun-washed look, delivering soft, shimmering color for allover warmth. Highlighting Powder delivers next-level luminosity thanks to Seamless Glow Technology, which features a blend of sheer powders and pearls that create second-skin luster.”
The NARS Summer Solstice Collection 2021 Cheek Duo has a split pan design, one side of which is a bronzing powder, and the other is a highlighting powder.
You can blend both sides together for a luminous bronze, or use each side individually to bronze and highlight the skin.
It looks like such a beautiful bronzer, with the pan having the same rippled starburst design as the lid, and it doesn’t look like there’s an overspray on the pan, unlike last year’s NARS Laguna Paradise Found Bronzing Powder design.
I think the NARS Summer Solstice Collection 2021 is so beautiful. It’s quite a small collection, but the packaging and shades are so pretty, and it’s perfect for a summer collection.
I really like the look of the Laguna Bronzing Cream and the Summer Solstice Eyeshadow Palette in particular, and the collection is available for purchase right here.
