Holiday 2015: NARS X Steven Klein Color Collection.

I cannot hold off on talking about the holiday collections anymore. It's November and the holidays are going to be here before we know it. First up in my holiday postings this year is the NARS Color Collection and for 2015 the brand has collaborated with iconic fashion photographer Steven Klein. The NARS X Steven Klein Color Collection is just as exciting as the season; it's seductive, provocative and perfectly embraces the spirit of NARS.

The color collection includes a Dual-Intensity Blush, Single Eyeshadow, Nail Polish and some limited edition lip products that I am in love with — Killer Shine Lipstick and Killer Shine Lipgloss.

The NARS X Steven Klein Color Collection includes:

Limited Edition Killer Shine Lipstick - $29
Daring color with dramatic luster. An addictively creamy new lipstick formula that glides and gleams.

  • Besame Mucho - Deep rose-beige
  • No Shame - Red plum
  • Redemption - Metallic pink champagne

Single Eyeshadow -  $25

  • Mortal - Iridescent pearl white
  • Stud - Soft pewter bronze
  • Never Too Late - Olive green with gold shimmer

Limited Edition Killer Shine Lip Gloss - $28
Fully-loaded gloss with a new vinyl-finish formula. Saturated shades with a gripping lacquer effect deliver high shine with high drama.

  • Provoke - Deep iris-purple
  • Fast Life - Iridescent dusty rose
  • Special Force - Wild strawberry

Nail Polish - $20

  • Black Fire - Shimmering slate blue
  • Hard to Get - Metallic bronze gunmetal
  • Night Creature - Metallic iris-purple

Dual-Intensity Blush - $45

  • Vengeful - White-gold highlight/Shimmering brick-red

I have a few items from the collection and I'm really like them all. The Killer Shine Lipstick in Redemption has been on my lips almost daily since I received it. This shimmery pink champagne lipstick really does have a metallic sheen to it that is perfect for the fall/winter season and looks great with a neutral smoky eye featuring Stud. Stud is the most gorgeous shimmery taupe brown. I love wearing this all over my lid with a darker shade in the crease. The other lippie I have is the Killer Shine Lipgloss in Fast Life. First off, I am really hoping that NARS keeps this Killer Shine formula; it's pigmented with a ton of shine, more so than most glosses and this one really lasts. Fast Life is a full-on metallic dusty mauve rose shade. I also have the Nail Polish in Hard to Get which is a very pigmented metallic gunmetal shade.

There are also some really amazing gifting items (palettes and sets) that feature the photography of Steven Klein on the packaging and some are must have items like the NARS X Steven Klein One Shocking Moment Cheek Palette that I already picked up and featured in my must have palettes for fall post last week. I'll be featuring more of those soon.

Right now, you can pick up the NARS X Steven Klein Color Collection at all NARS counters in Nordstrom, Sephora, NARS boutiques and online at narscosmetics.com.
