It finally felt like Christmas receiving this surprise goodie box from NARS featuring their collaboration with iconic fashion photographer, Steven Klein! The selection was all kind so fascinating and provocative, so let me break it down for you:

Dead of Summer Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette, S$85.00

Off the deep end.

I stared at the packaging a lot before opening it and was really pleased by the four earthy tones upon opening up. I usually work with these colours being eyeshadow shy (thanks, single eyelid). The palette comes in four wet/dry Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows which are kind of luminescent, so definitely appropriate for a simple smokey holiday look that has just a bit of shine.

Bonus, the palette also comes with a mini Larger Than Life Eyeliner in black that fits snugly inside the box, whee!

Single Eyeshadow in STUD, S$40.00

I feel like it's always so decadent to have just a single eyeshadow colour. This one is a soft pewter bronze that is all kinds of shiny and festive, but love that it doesn't scream over the top glitter. I actually think it would work well with my Dead of Summer Palette above. Hmm...

Limited Edition Killer Shine Lipstick in REDEMPTION, $40.00

This one's a kinda mesmerising metallic pink champagne shade. I love lipsticks in nudey colours so this one is just that with a hint of shimmer. Update this post once I use it with how the swatch looks!

Limited Edition Killer Shine Lip Gloss, S$40.00

Hey, I think this will be a regular in my make up bag. These days I am more of a lipstick girl because of how the colour shows up better in photos, so I really appreciate how this fully-loaded gloss has extra high shine and super saturated shades to rival lipstick, without feeling too heavy for daily wear. Also, I have a lot of dry-lip syndrome so none of that throughout the day. Hoorah!

Colours featured:
FAST LIFE (an iridescent dusty rose), and
SPECIAL FORCE (a wild shade of strawberry)

Nail Polish in NIGHT CREATURE, S$32.00

Super high shine lacquer in a shade of metallic iris-purple. It looks almost holographic and pretty daring. I almost never wear anything other than matte colours so this should be interesting hmm..

Personally I am thinking of purchasing the A Woman's Face Nude Lip Set as well, also from the this series collection because I'm seriously into lipliners (undefined lips is a curse). This set consists of a nude lippie, lip liner and lip pencil all in one. Ahhh. December. You make my wallet so thin.

The FRANÇOIS NARS + STEVEN KLEIN collection is now available at the NARS counter in Tangs! Pop down to grab a piece of this Limited Edition collection because everything feels so Christmas-appropriate.
