NEW IN: NARS x Steven Klein Collection

I have waited so long to be able to write this post that I now want to shout about it from the nearest rooftop. Oh my were the exact words I said when I first got wind of the fact that NARS was collaborating with fashion photographer Steven Klein, and although everyone knew it was happening, no images of the products were allowed to be circulated. A month or so later, we can finally showcase what the NARS x Steven Klein Collection* looks like and boy are they beautiful. Many products pass through my office, but NARS knows how to capture everyones' attention, and I am certainly not one to ignore such beauty. I am a big fan of NARS' products, so I literally came home and painted my face with the products that I had from the line. It really is a collaboration of creativity, art and cosmetic genius.

I have four products from the 13-piece collection, however there is also a Gifting collection launching too, which includes a selection of palettes encompassing Steven Klein's dark, surreal and expressive photography. I wrote about the full collection today on DIARY directory, so if you haven't already seen the gift packaging, be sure to check it out. The items I do have to show you are simply stunning; I haven't been this excited about a make-up collaboration in a while. I was especially excited to finally get to try NARS Single Eyeshadows (£18), as I have only every swatched them in store. The shades I have are Stud, a soft pewter bronze; and Never Too Late, an olive green hue with flecks of gold shimmer. I will have to delve further into NARS' eyeshadow range from now on because they were super buttery and easy to blend, while offering a good amount of pigmentation. I get complimented a lot when I wear Stud, it's such a wearable shade. The collection really offers a great balance of everyday and more statement looks, therefore there is something for every type of beauty fanatic.

You can see in the above photo how well the shadows catch the light - just imagine that on your eyelids; you'll be glistening the night away! The NARS x Steven Klein Limited Edition Killer Shine Lipstick (£20) in 'No Shame' is a daring red plum hue that couldn't have come at a better time - it's so autumnal and sexy, but not only that, it applies smoothly and is long-lasting too.

The hero product in my little NARS x Steven Klein collection is the Limited Edition Killer Shine Lip Gloss (£19) in Provoke, a deep iris-purple that compliments my hair in all the right ways. I was obviously instantly drawn to this because of its purpleness, but I am also incredibly impressed with the vinyl-finish formula - it's not sticky, but pigmented enough to wear it alone or over lipstick. This and the lipstick look banging layered!
