Need It Now: NARS Afterglow Heroes

NARS Afterglow Sensual Shine Lipstick and NARS Afterglow Liquid Blush

Ready to glow all out? Cue: The latest arrivals from NARS , the Afterglow Sensual Shine Lipstick and Afterglow Liquid Blush. Part of the famed Afterglow collection, both boast colour-meets-care formulas that coat lips and cheeks with nourishing ingredients, an irresistible tint (François Nars is the undisputed ‘King of Colour’, after all), and an enviable dew-boosting shine that rivals the sun…  

So, without further ado, let us introduce you to your new beauty bag heroes:  

NARS Afterglow Sensual Shine Lipstick 

Delivering dimensional shine, nourishing benefits, and long-lasting wear, this hybrid lipstick lets you outshine the rest. With buildable, sheer-to-medium coverage, the lustrous colour cocoons your lips in comfort while gliding on seamlessly, giving your pout a fuller-looking appearance. Featuring a blend of antioxidants to help protect lips, it’s also infused with healing mango and shea butter to banish dryness and retain moisture for eight hours of hydration (that’s your 9-5 sorted). Forever fans of the French label will be pleased that the brand’s signature Monoï Hydrating Complex is also present, so smile in the knowledge that a moisturising blend of coconut oil, gardenia tahitensis flower extract and squalene will provide all-day comfort for smooth, supple lips.  

NARS Afterglow Liquid Blush 

Lips aside, let’s shift your attention onto your cheeks. Entre: The Afterglow Liquid Blush. A lightweight, transfer-resistant liquid blush, the seamlessly silky formula layers and blends without streaking. Plus, the buildable pigment allows for customised application, so whether you’re hoping for a soft wash of colour or an intensified impact, this blush does it all. The ultra-creamy formula is also loaded with hydrating skincare benefits; infused with sodium hyaluronate for eight-hour hydration, not to mention vegan collagen for healthy-looking skin.  

All that’s left to say? Lasting radiance is impending…
