LAUNCH: ERDEM For NARS Strange Flowers Collection

 

For Summer 2018, NARS collaborates once again with long time fashion design partner, Erdem Moralioglu. The designer brings his nostalgic romance and dreamlike narrative to beauty with the limited-edition Erdem for NARS Strange Flowers Collection.

Bold yet timeless, the color collection is a custom designed palette of demure and daring shades for eyes, lips and cheeks, with additional newness in the form of NARS’ first Lip Powder Palette and Mattifying Blotting Paper. The highly covetable 13-piece capsule collection is encased in sophisticated soft-touch packaging adorned with one of three original floral prints Erdem created for the collaboration.

“It was really interesting to explore my aesthetic in collaboration with NARS and see how far we could push different elements through color and product,” says Erdem. “It was fascinating to develop new pigments and palettes as well as the cosmetics themselves.”

An innovative liquid lipstick is here – NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment review

 

I can’t tell you the last time I wore lip gloss. It has been easily years. I just love the density and the pigmentation of a lipstick especially. One the most popular lip products in the beauty world for about a good 3-4 years are liquid lipsticks. These lip products start off as liquids and they dry down, usually to a matte texture and finish. More recently, some companies have added reflects, pearl and glitter which gives an interesting dimension to a sometimes flat finish. The biggest complaint about liquid lipsticks are that they are too drying. The lips don’t have pores so that there are no oils that naturally lubricate them therefore they are more susceptible to dryness. That dryness can lead to cracking of the lip and lip product, discomfort and ‘pooling’ of the product around corners or crevices of lips. Another complaint that I have is that many liquid lipsticks don’t have even pigmentation – they apply patchy. So when NARS debuted their new liquid lipstick, the NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments, you know I had to try. I bought one of the colours that I have and the other one – the cute mini – was a 100 point perk from Sephora!

Here’s my video. See how they look on my dark skin. If you want to see a more detailed review with pictures, just keep scrolling.

NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment Review – Product Description

The NARS Powematte Lip Pigment is described as being infused with liquefied pigments with infinite matte colour. It promises to be a full-coverage, smudge-resistant, flexible, lightweight product that is applied with a custom doe foot applicator. This product is very thin – very close to the viscosity/feel of water. It is so thin that you have to be careful when opening the product as it can very easily splash on you. There is no other product like this that I have found on the market. It is juuuuust different enough and it stands out. It comes in 18 shades with a mix of neutrals, berries and reds. I have the shades Rock With You and Starwoman. Rock With You is a deep mulberry – a rich purple/plum. Starwoman is a bright blue-red shade. There is a very faint scent to the product.

THE INSPIRATION

“I was inspired by a young Hispanic girl in New York. She’s really confident and likes herself –  she doesn’t entertain all the makeup tricks “contour, foundation & powder” she goes straight for a strong lip. This is a sophisticated update on the heavily-lined lip from the 90’s. I played with the color and application on the lips, kept the rest of the face clean and bare, and brushed gloss through her brows to keep it young. It’s beauty with attitude.”
—Mark Carrasquillo for NARS Cosmetics
