NARS teamed up with iconic fashion photographer Steven Klein to create the Fantascene holiday makeup collection. An even blend of wearable and bold shades, the 13 fashion-forward colors come together in a modern palette that won't scream holiday.
The luxuriously creamy limited edition Killer Shine Lipstick ($29) boasts a lustrous sheen. Both Redemption, a metallic pink champagne, and Besame Mucho, a rose beige, are fairly opaque and easy to wear for light-to-medium skin tones. I like to layer Redemption on top of Besame Mucho for a more subtle effect but both are super fab with a thick cat eye.
As you've probably guessed from the name, the Killer Shine Lip Gloss ($28) is also a new, limited edition formula. Fast Life looks like an iridescent raspberry pink on the tube but on my lips it's fairly subdued, making it an awesome neutral option to wear year-round. The non-tacky lacquer finish is awesome if you're looking for that ultra shiny glaze look. I also think this one will sell out in no time.
I love dark green eyeshadows, so the Never Too Late Single Eyeshadow ($25) stole my heart. The muted olive green comes with a very subtle gold shimmer that is barely noticeable upon application. There isn't any fallout so that makes it extra lovable. It does fade a tiny bit after 8 hours, but primer should fix that issue.
I'm also obsessed with the new Nail Polish ($20) shades. Night Creature is a deep metallic purple; it looks a bit darker with two layers than the product image. Hard To Get, a metallic gunmetal bronze, is the perfect answer if you want a touch of grunge without resorting to black.
