REVEALED: NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday 2013 collection

NARS Guy Bourdin Collection

This morning, NARS Cosmetics released images of the limited edition NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday 2013 collection. The NARS/Guy Bourdin connection runs long and deep — we’ve seen several Bourdin images used in NARS campaigns over the years.

However it was as a child, NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars first discovered Guy Bourdin’s work in the pages of French Vogue. It was then that Nars was first inspired to become a makeup artist. Today François Nars honors Bourdin’s legacy with an entire limited edition collection for Holiday 2013 displaying bold uncompromising color and high-impact finishes in shades that launch us into his intriguing, high-fashion world.

Here’s what we have to look forward to as released from the brand: 17 shades, which includes four nail shades, three blushes (including Exhibit A), and one new formula seen in the form of five eyeshadows and five lipsticks – the Cinematic formulation was created exclusively for the NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection. Eyeshadows have a velvety soft texture that glides on smoothly for high-impact color and statement-making effects. Cinematic Lipsticks impart brilliant, glossy shine with intense color saturation. Creamy and comfortable, Monoï butter and Vitamin E offer moisturizing and antioxidant/anti-aging properties, ensuring lips look well cared for and colorful.

The Color collection launches on October 15 at NARS boutiques and Additional Guy Bourdin holiday sets will be realeased November 1st.
