For those of you that are frequent readers you know I am a HUGE Brit Fashion Fan and my most favorite of all British designers is Erdem!
Which is why I was so excited when word hit the streets that Erdem Moralioglu was partnering for his first EVER makeup collaboration with my favorite beautifying brand NARS!
“Modern, unexpected shades and petal-soft textures meet the British visionary’s signature floral aesthetic, creating an exclusive, custom-designed collection that flourishes with feverish femininity. Lips feel the rush. Cheeks get flushed. Eyes mesmerize. When fashion goes full bloom, expect the unexpected.”
The Erdem for Nars Strange Flowers 13 piece limited edition capsule collection which launched last week includes six lipsticks, two eye-shadow palettes, a highlighter stick, two blushes, and the brand’s first powder lip palette and blotting papers.
The packaging is absolutely stunning, the colors are the perfect amount of rich moody vibrancy paired with wonderful sultry sheers it truly is everything I LOVE about ERDEM embodied in a beauty collection.
The whole collection is hauntingly romantic but the real hero piece for me is the Lip Powder Poison Rose Palette. Lip Powder? YES!
Erdem knew from day one that he wanted a lip powder to feature in the collection: “I love the effect of stamped-on, really matte red lips. They remind me of my mother who would always wear a red lip as a sign she was ready to go out and face the world.”
The wonderful thing about these lip powders is that they can be incorporated with ANY of the lip colors in the collection (or with a favorite you might already have at home). If you follow my Social Channels you know that last week I hosted and exclusive launch of the Collection at the NARS Boutique here in Las Vegas for Influncers where we learned up close and personal HOW to use this magical Lip Palette.
How to Apply Erdem Poison Rose Lip Powder:
- I always suggest using a liner first to create defined lips.
- Then prime the lips with the Lip Priming Balm (the only creamy blend in the palette OR use any of the lipsticks) to create a base and an even canvas.
- Select your favorite color from the palette and apply with the lip brush to get a matte finish.
- (Optional) To create an ombre look apply a lighter shade or dab Zira (the shimmering rose gold shade) toward the center of lips.
The powders will create a perfect matte finish that is uber chic, long wearing and transfer resistant!
