The latest Holiday collaboration is a no-brainer: NARS – Guy Bourdin. If you look at most NARS ads, with ultra glamazons saturated in color and sensuality, you would immediately see influences from a Bourdin layout in French Vogue, circa 1977.
This Holiday season, Nars will be rolling out 16 new, limited edition eye shadows, lipsticks, blush and nail polishes. The eye shadows and lipstick are a little different. To really fit the Bourdin mold, shadows are reformulated with high-pearl and high-shine finish and lipsticks are super-glossy. Both deliver high impact “saturated, cinematic Bourdin look.”
Here’s a sneak peek of the collection that will debut in Nars boutiques and Nars.com on Oct. 15 before debuting at Sephora and department stores on Nov. 1.
Prices range from $19/USD – $29/USD
On the topic of Holiday, you can expect a myriad of gift options. They range from polish collections, shadow/blush palettes, Larger than Life Eyeliner Coffrett, to cheeky cosmetic pouches.
And I just love the packaging:
This set contains two mini velvet lip pencils and two lipsticks contained in a lacquered lip case. My problem is figuring out which one to keep and which ones to give out this Christmas.
Last year’s Andy Warhol collaboration gave us an urban downtown art-house feel so this season we are transported back to the glossy, high fashion disco days of Regine’s in Paris. The holidays just can’t come any sooner.
The gifting collection consists of eight sets. They will be distributed between Nars.com, Nars boutiques, Sephora and fine department stores. Prices range from $35/USD – $75/USD.
