NARS STEVEN KLEIN COLLABORATION : ONE SHOCKING MOMENT CHEEK PALETTE


FANTACENE

Make a scene. Refashion reality.
Live your fantasy…





One thing a Makeup Artist or Makeup Junkie look forward to, is the Christmas Collections of their favourite make-up brands.

When the collaboration of  NARS and the amazing photographer Steven Klein was announced (about 9 months ago to be exact), I was so excited! As a Makeup Artist, I really look up to all artists especially fashion photographers in the industry who are known for their amazing boundary- pushing images and Steven Klein was that type of photographer. I love artists who have extremely strong imaginations and don’t compromise.

The collection was the coolest effing make-up line I’ve ever seen! It’s so dark, sophisticated, edgy and modern. The limited-edition collection contains EVERYTHING we love from NARS, yummy new shades from gorgeous lipsticks to sparkling shadows all encased in a sexy, crazy, fun, provocative packaging boasting Klein’s iconic photographs. That’s why I’m probably drawn to this collection because I happen to love everything that features the work of great fashion photographers just like the Norman Parkinson X Charlotte Tilbury collaboration, it was beautiful and iconic too! 

My first pick (and not the last ) from the collection was the cheek Palette - “ One Shocking Moment”. It has four different blushes, a contouring duo, and a glowing Laguna bronzer in one palette which is amazing! Who doesn’t love a palette that has everything in one for a cheaper price?!

The contour blush in Paloma I and II are quite popular shades from NARS and let’s not forget the ever amazing bronzing powder Laguna as well. The contour duo Paloma should work great for anyone with a light to medium skin tone. Deeper skin tones, not so much. Blush in Robotic, Blasphemy, Luster and Dolce Vita. This palette is just gorgeous and you won’t regret buying it! Everything swatched rather well and definitely something worth investing in if you are on the lookout for new cheek palettes. 

I’m really excited to explore the collection more especially the collection’s stand out gift set: lip crayons housed in a brassy red-tipped projectile named Abnormal Female. Interesting isn’t it? So watch this space!



Have you seen the new NARS Christmas Collection yet?
