NARS is on fire with their releases! Just last month, NARS released their limited edition Orgasm collection, reviewed here and now we have another stunning collection on our hands. This one is inspired by the seductive warmth of summer and is aptly named the Endless Summer Collection. The collection is a limited edition Nordstrom exclusive and will coincide with the beginning of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
The collection features four gifting sets which includes a cheek and eye palette, two liquid lipstick sets, (in pink and nude tones) and a duo of NARS’ mini cult-favorites.
First, let’s discuss the packaging. NARS always seems to nail it when it comes to the packaging department. The packaging of this collection evokes images of summer and sunny days on the seashore. It features ocean waves seemingly kissed by the sun.
First up is the Hot Escape Eye & Cheek Palette, $49. This limited edition eye and cheek palette includes new shades in finishes ranging from matte to shimmer. The shades are complimentary to one another. Coupled with the highlighter and blush duo, you have a versatile faee palette that can take you from sunrise to sunset.
Shades include: (left to right, top to bottom):
Aurora Eyeshadow-matte cream
Yucatan Eyeshadow-shimmering taupe
Endless Eyeshadow-shimmering warm gold
Next Wave Eyeshadow-shimmering graphite
Sunstreak Highlighting Powder- shimmering pale pink
Hot Pursuit Blush-matte rose
Next up is the Sunseeker Lip and Light Duo, $24
This duo includes a mini cult-favorite Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and a highlighting powder. These are perfect travel size companions and I will be taking these with me on an upcoming trip next week.

Dolce Vita Mini Velvet Matte Lip pencil, dusty rose
Swatches L to R: Fort de France Highlighter, Dolce Vita Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
The collection also comes with two liquid lip sets. Both of them are priced at $49 each.Each set contains two Velvet Lip Glides and two Powermatte Lip Pigments. Some of the shades are all new and limited edition. (denoted below) While the Velvet Lip Glides provide a more saturated satin finish, the Powermatte lip pigments provide a true saturated matte finish.
The Undressed Liquid Lip Set I includes a range of nude shades:
Stripped Velvet Lip Glide- sheer beige
Cozumel Velvet Lip Glide-nude beige (limited edition)
Antigua Powermatte Lip Pigment, rose beige (limited edition)

Cartagena Velvet Lip Glide-orchid pink (limited edition)

Haze Powermatte Lip Pigment- rose wood (limited edition)
Swatches L to R: Bound, Cartagena, Haze, Save the Queen
I am enamored with these hues! It’s a collection that truly reflects the soft, seductive warmth of summer. These sets are great to receive or to gift others. The Undressed Lip Sets are an incredible value. Priced at $49, you are getting four lippies for less than the price of two! The Velvet Lip Glides and Powermatte lip pigments retail regularly for $26 each.
