NARS · Holiday 2018 Collection

 

Bands have been steadily releasing their holiday offerings, and I have a selection from NARS to show you today. Of course, François Nars always manages to add his own unique stamp on things, and this year’s grouping is no different. Drawing inspiration from 70s iconic punk fashion (hence the safety pins & studs), the shades of the Holiday 2018 Collection are all surprisingly wearable and relevant … with a bit of irreverence peeking through via the names, naturally.

In time for the holidays, Shu Uemura has recently launched the La Maison du Chocolat Collection, done in collaboration with renown French chocolatier of the same name. With items drawing their inspiration — in name, colours, and in many cases even in scent — from decadent confections, everything is seriously, deliciously gorgeous. Beauty + chocolate = my kind of match.

Ciaté · Glitter Storm Eyeshadow Palette

 

In time for the holiday season, Ciaté London has recently released the Glitter Storm Eyeshadow Palette, and I don’t know about you, but I’m a total sucker for anything with a snow globe effect. It doesn’t hurt that the nine hues of this palette are also sitting firmly in my wheelhouse, or that they wear so well either.
