Review : NARS x Christopher Kane Collection Photos & Swatches

I believe NARS x Christopher Kane collection to be the the most anticipated releases this year for the brand. Collaborations as this, continues to strive NARS being ‘bold & beautiful’! 


The collection  consists of 10 products in total – 4 lip glosses, 2 powder blushes, 1 single and a duo eye shadow and 2 multiples. 

Let’s head for the reviews of each of the product:

NARS x Christopher Kane Collection
NARS Silent Nude Blush

Silent Nude Blush: is a beautiful matte nude (more on the dusky beige side) blush. Unfortunately, this doesn’t show up on my medium skin but performed okay as an eye shadow. I really like this shade though there are many dupes available. For the fairer skin tones, this is a must have blush for soft contouring.

NARS Starscape blush

Starscape blush – is a neon pink. Super pigmented, matte, soft and long wearing (7+ hours) similar to many other NARS blushes.  This reminded me of Mac Pink Swoon. Due to high pigmented light application is recommended.

NARS Outer Limits Single eye shadow

Outer Limits Single eye shadow – metallic rose gold with shimmer particles. Looks utterly beautiful in the pan but, not so much on the eyes. Fallout is the major issue and even after patting the product into eyelids it wasn’t staying put on top of the primer. I thought it was in vain.

NARS Lip glosses

Lip glosses: Wasn’t surprised by the bold colors. They look very-much NARS but more natural and subtle when worn. All glosses are non sticky, non-drying but wished if they had more pigment -especially Nebulous because it is universally flattering.

NARS Glow Pinkis a pretty magenta. Complete beauty on its own. Good stain powder.NARS Mezmer – is the bright pink. Stain power is crazy. Glossiness was intact from 7-11am. After I had lunch it settled for beautiful stain that stayed till 4pm. NARS Nebulous Love it. Not the best when it came to staining. NARS NucleusLeast favorite. Too pale on my skin. 

Most pigmented colors were NARS Glow Pink & Mezmer. I would be wearing these a lot.

Overall: 

This collection wasn’t as exciting as previous ones. Didn’t sweep me off the feet which is very unlikely for NARS. I adore many NARS products and swear by them but this time I wasn’t sure. Because none of the products were up to ‘omg, get to the store now’standard. Having said that, I liked NARS lip glosses the most. They were wearable, easy and fuss-free. Perfect for running errands and daily use.

Collection is available at Sephora Dubai Mall & MOE.
