NARS Lose Yourself Set

NARS released several new sets and palettes in the spring months to celebrate the opening of their new store and all their new products.  They are continuing the trend for this summer and the first release so far is the Lose Yourself set that was just released to Sephora.  This set consists of a blush and bronzer duo and a matching pink lip gloss.  These shades will go great with a tan and the Laguna bronzer contained in this set is one of NARS top-selling products and is a consistent Beauty Award winner in several magazines.  I love NARS pinks so I have a feeling that this will be a great set...

Sephora gives a description of the set on their website.  "A limited-edition gift set that pairs NARS Angelika/Laguna Blush Bronzer Duo with a mini Angelika Lip Gloss.  This set features bright and bronzy shades that summon the spirit of summer.  The brand's iconic Laguna Bronzer comes paired with the sophisticated and sparkling cotton-candy pink Angelika Blush plus a matching lip gloss for breezy, ready-to-wear look."  I just love the Angelika shade and this is a great pink blush to create the very popular dramatic pink cheek look.

This set contains a Blush and Bronzer Duo and a Lip Gloss...

Blush - Made with transparent pigments for a soft and sheer look.  Imparts a natural, healthy glow for any skin tone and may be worn alone or layered together for more depth and intensity.
- Angelika - cotton candy with gold particles

Bronzing Powder - Diffused powder with golden shimmer to create all-over warmth and contour for the entire face.  Bronzing Powder creates a natural looking glow which enhances or creates the looked tanned skin.  Fills in lines and pores for smoother looking skin.  Sheer color enhances or creates the look of tanned skin.  Subtle shimmer adds glow.  Imperceptible finish ideal for all skin tones.
- Laguna - brown with gold shimmer

Lip Gloss - Serious shine and sexy color in sheer, creamy, and semi-sheer formulas.  Extremely wearable and versatile shades, lip gloss may be worn alone or over other lip products for heightened drama.  Ultra-shiny and highly pigmented.  Convenient wand application.  Iconic shades.
- Angelika - cotton candy with gold particles

I just love these pinks, I can't wait to play with these two shades.  And the chance to pair them with the iconic Laguna Bronzer is just too good to pass up.  Bronzers have been my major shopping item so far this month since we are heading into summer and I have decided to go back to my tan look this time around.  This set is great way for any pale skinned lady to be in her comfort zone with the pink shades and then to begin to try out a bronzed look.  If the beauty industry made awards for best sets and palettes, I am confident that NARS would be one of the finalists.
