Pretty as a picture: We’ve been sampling some of the bold and bright goodies from the new Man Ray for NARS Holiday 2017 collection.
The striking colours and tactile packaging, adorned with gold lips, capture some of the artist’s avante-garde wit. Born Emmanuel Radnitzky in 1890 in Philadelphia, Man Ray was known for his photography.
The collection, which went on sale last month, includes the oh-so-glam Off Limits Photogloss Lip Lacquer, £22, in Shimmering Fuchsia. This is not as scary a shade as it looks! It’s saturated in colour but delivers high shine. It is absolutely stunning – and the great thing about NARS lip lacquers is the paint-like effect – so it has genuine staying power.
NARS Fetishized Blush, in Pink Grapefruit, £23, is again not as scarily bright as it looks. Used sparingly, it actually delivers a natural-looking colour that flatters a variety of skin tones. It’s glittery, which we’re not hugely keen on, but the shade works and adds a pretty pop of colour. Nothing more than you’d expect from the brand famed for its universally-flattering and cheekily-named Orgasm shade.
NARS Debauched Duo Eyeshadow in Black Violet and Smoky Charcoal with Red Shimmer, costs £25. This dynamic duo is perfect for more dramatic smoky eyes. Both colours are beautiful either on their own or used together for layering and smoky effects.
The collection also includes Velvet Eyeliners, Glow Highlighter, lipsticks, eyeshadow palette and gifting sets.
