The Details

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.”

The eyeshadow palettes look really appealing, as does the pinker toned blush. I wonder if these will be only through Nars or if Sephora will have them (around me, the Nars displays at Sephora are looking pretty sad and neglected; Sephora stores in Canada used to be so pristine but they seem to be going the way of the US ones, from comments I recall and which always left me confused in past – messy displays/gondolas, products put in the wrong places, makeup spills of powder products all over the fronts of the displays, etc.)

I feel like the packaging could have been sooo much nicer for the lipsticks and blushes instead of just plain white! I love the jewel tones in the Night Garden palette though, super pretty. Are you planning on reviewing the collection by any chance?

The lipsticks I can see going more minimal, but the blush packaging has plenty of space for graphics. A little surprising they didn’t continue the floral theme there.

That entire collection is calling my name. Those lip colors, the lip powder set, and the blushes especially. It is pretty rare that a whole collection calls my name, but this might be the one – everything from the packaging to the colors.

The Night Garden palette is really something I feel I need. I especially love that it’s dark and rich and cool-toned for summer. I don’t love the white packaging compared to the classic black, but it will do.

I find the lip powder idea intriguing although I can’t imagine what it will do that will make lips look new and the color selection isn’t that interesting to me.

This is lovely! I will probably wind up with at least the lavender blush, but the other one looks pretty too just in this picture. I’ll be able to resist most else, except maybe just one lipstick. Beautiful.

Veronica Shields Avatar

They nailed the packaging, that’s for sure. Very Erdem. Now let’s hope the products live up to the appearance.

Tamara Avatar

The lip powders!!! I love lip palettes. All of the lipsticks are beautiful, especially Larkspur and Voodoo Lily. Both blushes look like colors I would wear, but not the eye palettes.

I love the packaging. I have to see performance for the eyeshadows. The shades do not particularly unique to NARS permanent line other than in name.

I’m assuming this is the ‘old’ NARS lipstick formula rather than LE editions of an Audacious? I’m interested in a couple of shades if it is not their traditional lipstick formula which is too drying for me.

I like the looks of the soft lavender blush

I’m madly in love with this entire collection! Even the reddish blush with the golden sheen that probably doesn’t belong within a mile of my pasty skin is calling me. I haven’t been down with NARS collabs in a long time but this is L.O.V.E.

This collection is so beautiful.The aesthetic is really fitting this collaboration. Erdem creates stunning gowns. His Autumn/Winter 2018 collection is gorgeous. The Highlighting Pencil sounds interesting I really hope the formula works well.Fleur Fatale, all the lipsticks, and both blushes are things I want to purchase if they review well.
