|we're here for your disposable income|
of course, i like that analogy, because i've been a big nars fan for a few years now [and even then consider myself as a tardy to the party], but this spring, it's kind of been like the science fair, or the city-wide young writers competition. there have been some really strong launches [some of which have been reviewed here and some of which are still coming]. some companies have chosen to stick with a solid colour collection, like the do every year [guerlain], while others have concentrated on launching new types of products [hourglass]. nars has joined in with chanel and mac to do a tightly paced series that encompasses both.
first of all, there's their colour collection, made up of bold hues said to be inspired by the early nineties. i'll take their word for it, because i remember the early nineties being about baby doll dresses, doc marten's, maryjanes and very dark lipstick. regardless of where it comes from, the nars spring collection does have a way of announcing itself in stores. you can spot the display from across even the busiest sephora and, if you're like me, you'll proceed to elbow people out of the way in order to get a closer look.
