NARS cosmetics has a new collaboration with famed fashion photographer Guy Bourdin that will be coming out shortly on October 15, 2013. This collection contains sixteen new, limited edition shades of eyeshadows, lipsticks and nail polish.
Francois Nars credits Boudrin as being one of the biggest influences behind his cult-favorite makeup line, even naming a bright orange blush, Exhibit A, after a book of his photographs.
Says the makeup artist about the photographer: "From the lighting and the makeup, to the abstract backgrounds and poses [in his photographs], Guy built up his own world. There is a certain decadence in Guy's work that really struck a chord with me." Nars has recreated that decadence with reformulated cosmetics - the "Cinematic Eyeshadow" and "Cinematic Lipstick" will feature highly-pigmented color payoffs and shiny dramatic finishes.
The collection will launch on October 15, 2013 in NARS boutiques and on NARS.com, and later will be available at Sephora and in specialty stores on November 1, 2013.
