(Preview) NARS Introduces Summer Gift Sets

Summer…the one time of year where we like to add a little sparkle to our looks, a little glittery shimmer to our cheekbones, a little more frost to show off a hint of tan.

NARS introduces two new sets to help us girls get a glow on. From sheer sophistication to playful pink, these kits will take you poolside and beyond.

NARS - I Will Survive Gift Set
NARS “I Will Survive” Gift Set

Think of these shades like a guilty pleasure, like that hot-off-the-press saucy novel that you keep hidden in your beach tote.

NARS - Lose Yourself Gift Set
NARS “Lose Yourself” Blush/ Bronzing Powder Duo & Lip Gloss Set

First up, a limited edition pair in the Lose Yourself Blush/Bronzing Powder Duo & Lip Gloss Set. Embrace the spirit of summer, with the brands already famous Laguna Bronzer (brown with flecks of gold shimmer), this comes paired with sparkling pink Angelika Blush (cotton candy pink with with gold/silver shimmer). The bronzer is rich, almost like milk chocolate on the skin, and shows off a tan to perfection. The blush is a soft wash of shimmer, almost like frosting on a cupcake. This is teamed with a matching Angelika gloss. Normally a $69 value, this set is priced at $49 exclusively at Sephora.com.

This set is wonderful for both fair and dark skin tones, as the two shades can be worn separately or blended together for a sheer allover glow. Compared to last season’s sets, this is a bit lighter pink (the iconic orgasm blush was included last year).

Next, turn on your inner sex kitten with the I Will Survive Gift Set. Again, unlike the previous seasons totally, uh, orgasmic trio, (remember Love Thrill?). this little package of dynamite contains Sex Machine Velvet Lip Pencil (pink-mauve), Deep Throat Lip Gloss (peach shimmer), and Deep Throat Blush (peach with shimmer) A $75 value, you can find this and more for $55 at narscosmetics.com. This pairing is great for light skin tones as it brings a hint of peachy just kissed by the sun glow to your skin.

We think this summer is geared to be a scorcher! Which one of these will become your favorite?
