The stars of the beautiful imagery are models Anna Cleveland and Codie Young who were chosen by the pair to represent different aspects of femininity – “timeless and modern, sharp yet soft”.

The packaging in this collection really is to die for. It has been wonderfully executed and the attention to detail is excellent. The palettes are serious collector candy and NARS fans will definitely need to own these! The Get Real set is a work of art in acrylic. Stunning.

I love both these shades of liner. I think the Charcoal with gold is very unusual and I am also a huge fan of a warm brown liner. The texture is creamy and developed to be long-wear. Find Them HERE

In terms of packaging, this is the star of the show. It is absolutely incredible! It is something that you’d want to keep forever and ever. The mini Audacious lipsticks are the cutest thing you have ever seen, and if you haven’t tried the mascara, this is a great opportunity.

All the shades are beautiful. I love them all used wet apart from eyeshadow shade 4 which is a bit too ‘pastey’ when wet. It is perfect dry though.

It honestly is the most amazing collection. I am obsessed with everything. The packaging imagery is breathtaking and the products are 100% lust-worthy. As a huge fan of the Dual Intensity formula, I think my favourite piece is Give In Take. It’s beautiful and I am in love.
