When Art & Beauty Meet: MAC and NARS Collections
There is nothing I love more than a beauty collection which was inspired, or even better, a collaboration, with an artist/photographer/someone from the world of culture. So I was obviously excited to see these new collections from MAC x Helmut Newton and NARS x Sarah Moon.
MAC release so many collections all the time, and the one which celebrates the work of Helmut Netwon really stood out to me. I have actually quite a few of his photos saved on my Pintetest. This is a small edition with carefully chosen products which capture the photographer’s work perfectly.
A palette of classic, neutral shades – Point ‘N’ Shoot (£25/$32), Liquid Eye Liner (£16), Upward Lash Mascara (£19).
There are also three Nail Lacquers (£10): Monte Carlo (red), Call Time (grey) , Berlin (purple) and the most exciting product – Retro Matte Lipcolours (£17.50/$21) which are promised to provide liquid-suede finish: High Heels ( red), Chateau M (deep red wine) and Self Portrait (dark plum).
And here is an overview of the NARS x Sarah Moon collection, and I am absolutely in love with the visuals.
There are actually a lot of items available, as well as the holidays sets, so I’ve just chosen what stood out to me personally.
Moon Matte Lipstick ($28) in Rouge Indiscret ( Red Geranium), Blush ($30) in Isadora (lavender pink), Nail Polish ($20) in La Dame En Noir (Deep Burgundy), Duo Eye Shadows ($35) in Indes Galantes ( Iridescent Indigo Smoke and Mulberry), Kohliner ($25) in Sichuan (Rust Brown)
