NARS at Central Square
Ever since I saw in Central Square BGC early this year a construction of the first NARS boutique in the Philippines, I got really excited for two reasons. One is the need for a bigger space in Rustan’s.
And the other one (which is also related to the first one) is that I really love NARS and I’m a certified #Narsissist.
So when i got the invite to preview its first boutique in The Philippines, I immediately said yes.
The first thing that caught my attention? Pigments! Before, the display is limited but here we can already see a wide assortment of colors, from eye shadows to blushes.
The lipstick display is also wider in terms of assortment, arranged according to textures and finishes. I focused on one lip liner loved in the above photo though.
The look and feel of the store is minimalist, clean but sophisticated. The lights are just right for customers to see the true colors.
There are special highlight displays of new or limited edition collections in the store. I saw the extension of the Dual Intensity line (formerly just an eye shadow range) and I’m super happy to see it with different colors and gradients.
One of the big launches of NARS when it comes to LE’s is its collaboration with Christopher Kane. I’ve been spotting this in the Instagram page of NARS, and it has been an eye candy. It’s a color statement defined as “NeoNeutral” defined as unexpectedly bold yet shocking neutral. My top pick is the Outer Limits Shimmer Eyeshadow and Starscape Blush.
I’m just so excited that I have a new place to hang out whenever I wanna crush on NARS products (haha). The store is located in GF, Central Square, 5th Avenue cor. 30th Street, Bonifacio Global City Taguig, Metro Manila
