NARS HOLIDAY COLLECTION 2008

Going into the holiday season, François Nars imagines a look marked by deep purple-infused hues to match the autumnal mood, offset with hints of sparkle to answer the call for festive touches. Bold, regal purple eyes pair with a berry-stained glossy pout. Metallic tones of silver and gold gild the eyes, tempered by a sheer yet statement-making lip. With such rich attention-demanding colors adorning the eyes and lips, cheeks and nails need nothing but a hint of peachy-pink made even more flattering with a whisper of pure gold.

So, I’m pretty sure I have to have Silent Night eyeshadow. Like I will die without it.

  • Night Life Single Eyeshadow Silver with silver particles ($21.00)

“One should always be tempted to untie a woman’s clothes” – Yves Saint Laurent

A symbol of femininity and the love that Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent had for women, the bow — be it demure or sexy, a velvet loop or a satin tie — has woven its way through his collections. Here, gracefully placed at the small of the back. There, tied around the neck in a protective, airy gesture to veil a lovely décolleté in transparent chiffon. Or just there, on the hip to highlight the endless length of a leg.

For the 2008 year-end holidays, the BOW COLLECTION reinterprets the symbol and pays tribute to the Couturier. With a look created by Val Garland, the sparkling, mischievous eyes of Coco Rocha are hidden behind a thick fringe of hair and her laughing lips are defined with an intense, plumping lipstick.

THE BOW COLLECTION, festive and colorful, unveils four Limited Edition, “must-have” accessories — Palette Duo Pour Les Levres, Palette de Maquillage Mutli-usage, Fard a Paupieres 4 Couleurs, and Touche d’Or pen-brush – as well as a new Golden Gloss, Fard a Levres Rouge Pur, and La Laque shades.

NEW PRODUCTS IN LIMITED EDITIONS:

  • Palette Duo Pour Les Levres ($65.00)
  • Palette de Maquillage Mutli-usage ($90.00)
  • Fard a Paupieres 4 Couleurs ($60.00)
  • Touche d’Or / Golden Touch for Face ($40.00)

NEW BASIC SHADES:

  • Golden Gloss ($28.00) in N 16 – Golden Burgundy
  • Rouge Pur Lipstick ($29.00) in N 142 – Honey Beige
  • Nail Lacquers ($19.00) in N 37 – Deep Blue, N 38 – Moonlight White

Availability: November 2008
