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!
So, true to Erdem’s style, this limited edition collection is all about nostalgic romance with a stunning floral theme. There’s something for everyone with a range of muted and bold tones for eyes, lips and cheeks. Find the collection HERE.
There’s also some exciting newness with the launch of NARS’ first ever lip powder palette and Mattifying Blotting Paper. I’m thrilled!

NARS Erdem Blush Shades & Swatches
This blush has a velvety formula with silky-soft pearlescent finish. It delivers sheer buildable colour in two new shades:
- Love Me – strawberry pink with golden shimmer
- Loves Me Not – soft lavender pink
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
- Mythios – shimmery ivory
- Thistle – metallic mink
- Flourish – shimmery steel blue
- Belladonna – matte soft brown
- Daydream – shimmering copper
- Holly Hock – satin mulberry
Night Garden Palette
- Oleander – shimmering pale gold
- Indio – satin forest green
- Reborn – satin marigold
- Fauna – deep matte brown
- Sprung – satin midnight blue
- Matira – satin black
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.
- Lip Priming Balm – nude
- Zira – shimmering rose gold
- Calypso – matte rose
- Damask – matte fuchsia
- Ottoman – matte scarlet
- Travel Lip Brush
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.
This is such a wonderful collection. The concept is beautiful, the packaging is exquisite and the formulations are divine. I know that loads of my reader are already on their marks to snap up this limited edition launch. So here are the all important availability details!!
