Christopher Kane for NARS



London Fashion week is in full swing and launching immediately after the Christopher Kane show today (18th September) is his limited edition collection in collaboration with NARS.


Known for his embellished and foil printed clothing Scottish fashion designer Christopher Kane has produced a metallic effect eye shadow palette and chrome finish lipstick. The packaging is equally attractive with its turquoise holographic cover.



The eye shadow palette-£34.00..



Classic slim line palette holding 6 shades all with a sparkling metallic finish. The ultra fine shimmering particles lay over a complimentary base colour, which produces a two-tone finish.


 Colour pay off is much sheerer than I expected. It takes a good amount of building up to get a solid finish and definitely works best when patted with a firm brush onto a cream base to give the most vibrant finish.


 No drop down and easy to blend but does initially lay down quite patchy so blend and re-apply.

 Works well on all skin tones and would look beautiful on a deeper skin tone.



The Chrome Couture Lipstick in Chroma Chrome-23.00..



Well I think we all know it’s a chrome finish from the title! Again a two-tone pearlescent pink that creates a soft moonlit finish.

 Very natural finish, although I think that’s a good thing, it may look dated if it had an intense payoff.


 Creates a very pretty delicate finish although it does collect in any dryness on the lips



If this collection is your thing then you can purchase from the NARS London Boutique in Covent Garden and also online here. Quantities are limited.

  1. Ahhhh they look so pretty in the pan, but I wish the colors were a bit more intense. I always find this to be the struggle with shadows that are ultra glittery/shimmery!
