for the holidays, Nars has just released a collection, called Modern Kabuki, of specially designed gifts inspired by François Nars’ travels throughout Japan, his deep interest in Japanese culture, and his fascination with Kabuki makeup. The collection captures the exquisite artistry of Japan’s Kabuki theater. Every detail is a vibrant, modern, iconic interpretation of the centuries-old dramatic form. Here’s what the collection, already available at narscosmetics.com, includes:
HANAMICHI KABUKI-INSPIRED EYESHADOW PALETTE ($65.00)
This is definitely my favourite item in this collection, it is just gorgeous. This eyeshadow palette has a beautiful flower pattern while the colors are evocative of those found in the Kabuki theatre: an icy white, a rich and shimmering deep rose, a matte black, and gold.
MIE KABUKI MINI SOFT TOUCH SHADOW PENCIL COFFRET ($55.00)
The shades included are: Tall Tale (deep metallic purple), Magic Moon (deep metallic navy blue), Ballets Russes (silver), Aigle Noir (black infused with gold shimmer), Palladium (turquoise with silver glitter) and Skorpios (copper).
KUDOKI KABUKI MINI LIP COFFRET ($125.00)
Named for an element of Kabuki dance, the set features three intense, LE shades poured into custom ceramic cups and a Kabuki Lip Brush. The shades included are Ougi (deep red), Takebue (neutral) and Botan (deep pink).
