This is a very exciting and cool collection from NARS, created in close collaboration with British-French actress and singer Charlotte Gainsbourg. What’s very unique is that this new limited edition range contains a very interesting new skin base product – the Hydrating Glow Tint – and it’s the first time NARS have done skin in a limited edition collab. Here’s a look at the brand new NARS Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection. I have photos and swatches. Find it here
NARS describe this as a true artistic collaboration from start to finish. The NARS Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection is an expression of her chic, edgy style through the beauty vision of Francois Nars.
