Straight from their Laced with Edge 2014 holiday makeup collection, NARS Cosmetics has a few lovely trinkets to lust after. Architectural designer Chris Kabatsi's delicate nebula print adorns the soft black packaging, which makes the beauty experience all the more special.
The Gabon Hardwired Eyeshadow is a gorgeous dark olive shade with micronized gold sparkle. Thanks to the new formula, it's real easy to blend and is very pigmented when applied dry. It can hold up for most of the day without primer but there is some sparkle fall out — something I can overlook as it's so pretty and flattering, especially for the holidays.
The Femme Fleur Hardwired Lipstick, a warm brown red with a gold copper finish, complements the Gabon eyeshadow perfectly. It's not quite as opaque as their fabulous Audacious Lipsticks, but a few extra swipes will solve the issue. It goes on smoothly and lasts several hours before wearing off.
The NARS holiday collection is now available at www.narscosmetics.com and at department stores on November 1.
