The New NARS Christmas Makeup Collection Is BEAUTIFUL

NARS tend to outdo themselves when it comes to collaboration collections. From Charlotte Gainsbourg to the Andy Warhol Foundation, each collection is an ode to a moment; a time (or person) in pop culture that can be respectfully recreated through beauty. And this year, with the release of their Man Ray Holiday Collection, which features limited-edition shades influenced by the electrifying art of the early 20th-century modern master, Man Ray, they have done it again.

Obviously, colour takes centre stage; imaginative palettes of bolds and brights (with the packaging adorned with his iconic black-and-white photography) with something for everyone inside — bright glosses and strong, bold shadows to neutral lipsticks, shimmering highlighters and metallic bronzers. Highlights from the collection include the Love Game Eyeshadow Palette (€49) inspired by the vibrant persona of Man Ray’s muse and the first black model to be featured in a fashion magazine Ady Fidelin, NARS Love Triangles (€22 each and perfect stocking fillers), featuring a miniature lipstick and accompanying blusher and the Kiss Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set (€57), which consists of four new shades of their legendary liner in a chic gold cosmetic case. My personal favourites are the Audacious Lipstick Coffrets (€49 each) featuring the award-winning Audacious Lipstick in a gorgeous portable compact of four minis with two new, limited-edition shades.
