Steven Klein’s NARS Collection is Surprisingly Festive

Festive isn’t a word typically associated with acclaimed photographer Steven Klein, but with the holiday season coming just around the corner, his sensual and fantastical romantic collaboration with NARS becomes rather party appropriate. High-shine lipsticks and lip glosses, super sparkly nail polishes, a classic red lip set and moody metallics – it’s all the ammo you need to create your perfect party look. The coffrets – there are eight of them in total, from mascara to lipsticks – make perfect gifts for the beauty junkies in your life too.

Klein was inspired by his own surreal images and their signature, intense colours. “For me, it was a great opportunity to explore my work in a different way – it’s turning my images into three-dimensional products. The collection was based on my images that existed as opposed to creating images that were inspired by the products.” Sparkly metallics in earth colours are joined by bold reds and soft pinks and nudes. There’s something for the girl who dares, but something for her sensitive side as well. “I like women who are daring, but underneath they are all very sensitive and care about the world and where the world is going,” adds Klein. What’s great about the collection is that it also covers you throughout the day. Go for A Woman’s Face Nude Lip Set in the daytime and transition into the Dead of Summer Eyeshadow Palette for the night. Of course, the whole collection features NARS cult-favourite formula, from the Audacious lipsticks to the all-new Audacious Mascara. See our top picks in the gallery below.
