The Nars X Erdem Strange Flowers collection dropped this month and it’s a safe bet to say If you’re going to get your hands on any make up collab this year, this is unequivocally the one to get. From the exquisite packaging , sultry bold colours to the absolutely fantastic music box it’s nestled in this is by far one of our favorite collaborations EVER.
This outstanding collection showed up on our doorstep this week and there was genuine excitement in the air as we opened up the drool-worthy packaging to pull out one of the cutest black shiny music boxes ever.
Covered in signature Erdem florals, it opens up to reveal a highly covetable 13-piece collection of creamy, and exquisitely bold colours to be coveted by any bona fide make up lover.
It also includes ( drum roll please ) the first ever Nars Lip Powder Palette!! While 2018 is far from over this one is definitely the one to beat so far. For those who aren’t too sure who Erdem is , he’s the fabulous designer behind styles worn by Michelle Obama, Kate Middleton, Gweneth Paltrow, Keira Knightly to name just a few. This marks his first foray into the world of cosmetics and it’s an absolute hit.
Bold yet timeless, the colour collection is a custom designed palette of demure and daring shades for eyes, lips and cheeks.
This collection very handily includes a super cute set of blotting papers to keep make up in check!
Another gorgeous inclusion is the Multi-Use Highlighting Pencil. This pencil is usable for both eyes and cheeks. It has a stunning ultra smooth formula and fits every skin tone.
