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.
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.
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.
What are your favorites from the NARS Final Cut collection?

Summary: The Final Cut limited edition collection is comprised of pinks for every skin tone. New Attitude and Villa Lante are just one of the four matching pairs. Effortless, chic, and floral, they are beautiful choices for spring.
