NARS x Erdem · Strange Flowers Collection, Part 2

 

The second half of my NARS x Erdem Strange Flowers Collection review centres around the face. Having produced some of the beauty world’s most iconic blushes (Orgasm, Sin, Deep Throat), I was curious to see how the two shades here would stack up — I won’t spoil it, so I guess you’ll just have to read on to learn — but the piece I was most excited about was the highlighting pencil. Again, no spoilers although even saying that I’m probably giving it away, am I right?

CHANEL · Les Beiges de CHANEL 2018

 

In 2013 when CHANEL launched Les Beiges, to say that the concept turned out to be iconic wouldn’t be an overstatement, and since then the brand has continued to add something to the range every year.

Urban Decay · Backtalk Eye & Face Palette

NARS · Wanted Cheek Palettes I & II

 

When NARS introduced the Wanted Eyeshadow Palette last year (reviewed), the beauty world could not get enough, and we can now add blushes to that family — introducing Wanted I & II Cheek Palettes, filled with six pigment-rich shades (5 of which are new and limited edition in each palette). From the brand that created iconic hues such as Orgasm, Sin, and Deep Throat, something tells me that these palettes would have been better named “You’ll WANT them” instead. Yup … they’re THAT good.
