NARS Final Cut Collection: New Attitude Blush and Villa Lante Satin Lip Pencil Review and Swatches

 NARS Final Cut New Attitude blush and Villa Lante Satin Lip Pencil

Cherry blossom pink – the essence of Spring.  I’ve found it most recently in NARS New Attitude blush and Villa Lante Satin Lip Pencil.  If I was to pick one product from the entire Final Cut collection, it would be New Attitude blush.  Not just because of the name (the perfect blush really does give me a new attitude), but, to quote a tweet from @NARS413BLKR because it is effortless, fresh, and flirty.  I am in complete and total agreement.

NARS Final Cut New Attitude Blush product

While New Attitude looks rather bright in pan, it wears quite softly.  NARS is known for a few pigmented blushes that need extra care during application.  New Attitude takes the other route and  can be applied as usual or built-up for a more obvious flush.

NARS Final Cut Villa Lante Satin Lip Pencil

Villa Lante is a cool mid-tone pink that will look very different depending on the wearer’s skin tone or how much is applied.  On my medium olive skin and with 2-3 layers, lavender tones are drawn out.  But with just one layer (as worn below) or on lighter and cooler skin, it is a pretty spring floral pink.  The smooth application and lightweight feel makes the Satin Lip Pencil formula a favorite.

I say yes to pink and yes to New Attitude and Villa Lante.  While I still appreciate a good bold look, I find myself drawn more and more to softer romantic shades.

    Love how this lip pencil looks lavender-toned on you, and the blush is really fresh and pretty. I love the name, too. Ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh – I’ve got a new attitude! ;) Much better than the following scenario:
    “Love your blush! What color is it?”
    “Sex Fantasy.”

    • Alison M

      Yup. NARS is the only brand that gets me to pay attention to LE. This collection is too easy to get major use out of. Are you buying anything from it?

      • Kristen / Glambunctious

        I’m trying VERY HARD to resist, but Love blush just keeps flirting with me! ;)
