Nars takes the plunge

Nars takes the plunge

‘Adult Swim’ might sound like a ticket for a dip at the local lido but it’s also the name Nars has given to its sultry Summer 2014 Colour Collection.  

Few can make a swimming cap look sexy but model Toni Garrn, shot for the campaign by legendary Nars founder François Nars, is one of them. Her eyes pop with the pewter and lilac of the Lost Coast eyeshadow duo, her lips glistening with the flamingo pink of Salamanca lipgloss and her skin has the peachy glow of the Hot Sand Illuminator.

The range of high octane, richly pigmented cosmetics, which also includes nail polish that turns talons geranium and a pencil that lends eyes a smouldering quartz definition, are all about exotic poolside decadence. Swap flip-flops for towering heels and step into the fast lane in this array of tropical, seductive shades.


In stores May, prices range from £15 to £25.
