I haven’t been this excited about a collection for quite some time, and I know that you are too because I have been getting so many messages about it! I have the complete NARS Erdem Strange Flowers collection right here and I couldn’t be happier. Please enjoy my photos and swatches. I loved doing them!

The blush shades are super gorgeous. Loves Me Not is literally the easiest shade to wear and gives the skin a gorgeous diffused glow. Loves Me is just perfect with its golden shimmer. It’s like a strawberry version of Orgasm. Both shades are gorgeous on the eyes too.

NARS Erdem Multi-Use Highlighting Pencil

The pencil has been formulated for use on eyes and cheeks. It is super smooth and easy to blend, imparting a beautiful fresh radiance. The shade is called White Phox and is an opalescent lavender.

I think I’ll get a lot of use our of White Phox highlighter as it’s such an easy format. You just draw on and blend to add light and radiance to the skin. It’s perfect for that inner corner highlight, and helping define the brow, as well as a soft glow on the tops of the cheekbones and cupid’s bow.

NARS Erdem Eyeshadow Palette Swatches

There are two absolutely eyeshadow palettes each with a longwear formula and crease-proof colour.

Fleur Fatale Palette

I love the Fleur Fatale eyeshadow palette – those shades are perfect for me, but I think the Night Garden palette is the one that makeup artists will love as it’s edgier and very trend led.

NARS Erdem Poisin Rose Lip Powder Palette Swatches

This is a really different product! It includes a creamy lip primer and also a precise lip brush along with four gorgeous shades. It is all about creating a softly diffused matte lip.

I am really excited about the lip powder palette because it’s like nothing else I own. The nude primer is extremely pretty and you can be very creative with the powders to achieve a range of different looks. I am looking forward to doing a lot more experimenting with that.

  1. I’m not usually given to profanity unless it’s Tom Ford F*cking Fabulous but this looks completely f*cking amazing! It really is a joy to look at. I have spoken with a Nars manager this week who is absolutely bursting with pride and excitement over this launch. I can’t wait to collect all my pieces……I’ve gone for broke and ordered all 13 because I think this collection is just totally groundbreaking, utterly awesome and deserves to be kept together for posterity. I don’t know if I even care how it performs because I just want to marvel and gaze at the beauty of it. Well done Nars……you totally nailed it. Xx
