Steven Klein x Nars Lead

It may only be October, but thanks to Nars we already know what will be topping our holiday wish lists. The brand’s highly anticipated collaboration with famed fashion photographer Steven Klein is finally here, and the results are to die for.

Klein's goal for the stunning, 23-piece range was to create the perfect mix of wearable and statement-making shades—and with a lineup that offers everything from olive greens to champagne shimmers to deep plums and reds, that mission was certainly accomplished.

So, how did this match made in makeup heaven come together in time for the holiday season? “I love bringing great artists into the Nars world and working around people that I know, love, and admire. To me, Steven was a very obvious choice because I’d been really staring at and loving his work so much,” François Nars told InStyle. “His love of makeup and then the extravagance of his photographs, the height of his sophistication—all what makes his work so special to me really fit so well with Nars.”

Not only will the collection get us through the fall and winter months, but the dark, moody packaging (including a lip pencil coffret shaped like a bullet) will also add a unique touch our vanities. Beauty addicts can get their hands on the full line when it becomes available on on Oct 5.
