Haute Holiday: NARS Holiday Collection Lands in OC

If you have trouble getting into the holiday spirit (especially when the holidays start coming months in advance), the latest collection from beauty juggernaut NARS is sure to get you in the spirit with bold color, brand new products and electrifying hues for the coming season. So while Halloween is right around the corner, get to your NARS counter quick, because these babies will be sold out long before you’re carving your Thanksgiving turkey.

Inspired by bold colors and the idea of kaleidoscopic vision, the color collection for holiday includes the brand’s very fifrst eye shadow trio. With all three colors in one pan, the Okinawa Trio Eyeshadow will definitely be your go-to shadow this season, making everything from a sultry blue smoky eye to a more subtle wash of color available all in one pan. The brand’s famed blush gets a remix too, with the shade Sex Appeal. For contouring made easy, brushing this blusher on will have your cheekbones standing out like a supermodel’s in no time at all. Add to that a few of the eye shades (duo or single) in holiday-ready hues like gold (Etrusque) or a pair of purples (Melusine) and you’ve got so many choices you’ll never wear the same look twice.

For lips and nails, Francois might be boing Gaga — literally — because there’s a pink hue called Petit Monstre (little monster, naturally) for lips and a purple orchid shade of nail varnish called Pokerface. For a complete color consult, be sure to stop by your NARS counter and see the collection for yourself. Nars himself says that the holidays are all about dressing up and celebrating with your clothes and your makeup should be no different in that respect. Go on, go bold and get merry.

NARS holiday collection is available at NARS counters at Space.NK inside Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom stores. For more information on the collection or to order online, visit www.NARScosmetics.com.
