Nars x Steven Klein Cosmetics Collection Is Worth It Just For The Packaging — PHOTOS
Nars Cosmetics frequently teams up with some of the fashion industry's most beloved, daring, and iconic tastemakers. In the past, the makeup brand has collaborated with designers like Christopher Kane and Thakoon to create highly covetable beauty products, but Nars x Steven Klein is poised to be their most dramatic and stunning partnership yet. Klein is a photographer known for his dark, surreal, and sometimes borderline grotesque aesthetic, which is perfectly encapsulated in this collection's packaging and muted color palette.
Nars and Klein created a 13-piece color collection and a 10-piece gifting collection, which contain two limited edition formulas, Killer Shine Lip Gloss and Killer Shine Lipstick. The collaboration is the perfect mix of super wearable and super statement-making shades, so that you can customize your look to be exactly as bold or demure as your heart desires. The photographer even created some custom lipstick packaging perfect for all you femme fatales out there — a deep scarlet lip pencil in the shape of a bullet.
You'll have to hold out for a few more days until you can finally buy this cinematic range online beginning October 5, but if you want to look like one of Klein's sirens, it's totally worth the wait. Here are the seven pieces you're going to want in your beauty arsenal ASAP.
