Why We Love NARS x Man Ray


NARS kills it with their recent collab for their limited edition holiday collection featuring American artist Man Ray. Known for his surrealist work, NARS features his beautiful photography on the packaging on their eyeshadows palettes, cheek, and lipstick sets. These are perfect for gift giving and for those who love to collect limited edish collections. My favourite, the NARS x Man Ray: Noire Et Blanche Audacious Lipstick Coffret, a set of four mini red lipsticks, that come in a beautiful round bubble top box. I love it so much it sits on my coffee table amongst my other treasures. If you're looking to get your hands on NARS x Man Ray, don't wait too long. When Iw as writing this and putting together my affiliate links, I realized a lot of pieces are already sold out. Thanks for making gift giving so easy this year NARS!

NARS x Man Ray: Duo Eyeshadow in Montparnasse, $43

This crease-proof shadow comes in a shimmery gold and iridescent orchid shade that's excellent for creating a smokey eye. I personally like to smudge the orchic shade along my bottom lash line, load my lashes with tons of mascara and voila, I have a dramatic day time look that's not too overdone. 

NARS x Man Ray Velvet Eyeliner in Nagoya, $24

This vibrant purple eyeliner is smudge proof, tug-free, and all around amazing. I like to set it into place by adding a little bit of eyeshadow overtop and then going back in with eyeliner and intesifying the colour.
