If there is one collection on which to blow your rent, mortgage, or slush fund, it’s the NARS x Man Ray collection. It’s a holiday range and it’s a limited edition. It’s also NARS, which means it’s of utmost quality and full of bold pops of color. The late Man Ray was a photographer known for his crackling use of color, which translates beautifully in saturated lip glosses, electrifying matte lip pencils, smoky eyeshadow duos, highlighters, and concentrated blushes that diffuse impeccably when swirled onto cheeks with a fluffy, supersized blush. The most lust-worthy and covetable products in the collection include The Veil Cheek Palette, which is a trifecta of blushes with signature Man Ray lips embossed in the lower left corner. There’s a golden bronzer, a satiny watermelon-hued blush, and a rosy and bronzy highlighter, so you can contour, spotlight, and add a little color to your features. The colors are buildable, so you can be as bold or as subtle with a wash of color as you like.
Then, there’s The Les Amoureux Audacious Lipstick Coffret, which features four mini neutral lippies. Ady (dusty coral) and Arden (burnt coral) are limited edition and new, while Barbara (tan rose) and Jane (terracotta rose) complete this any occasion set. They are packaged in a gorgeous and giftable circular container with a gorgeous Man Ray photo that can be reused and repurposed.
