This is THE most stunning limited edition collection! Francois Nars and fashion photographer Sarah Moon have collaborated to create eleven stunning images that adorn a perfect makeup edit. Here’s the lowdown on the NARS Sarah Moon Closer Look Collection with lots of photos and swatches. Enjoy!
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.

NARS Moon Matte Lipstick
There are 4 shades of Moon Matte Lipstick in the line up:
- Indecent Proposal – Nude Rose
- Rouge Improbable – Raspberry Red
- Rouge Indiscret – Red Geranium
- Fearless Red – Vivid Red
I have two of the shades to show you – Rouge Indiscret and Fearless Red:
The texture of these lip products is great. They are smooth, creamy and instantly matte. I also love the slim bullet which makes application easy and the perfect size to slip into your bag. Find them HERE
NARS Sarah Moon Blush
- Impudique – Pink Red
- Isadora – Lavender Pink
This is the prettiest shade of blush in a super fine powder. It’s easy to apply, buildable and a lovely natural looking flush of health on the skin. Find them HERE
Nars Sarah Moon Nail Polish
- La Dame en Noir – Deep Burgundy
- Never Tamed – Red Geranium
- Flonflons – Pink Red
I am obsessed with this shade. It’s such a perfect red and the flat, wide brush makes it very easy to apply. Find It HERE
NARS Sarah Moon Duo Eyeshadow
- Quai des Brumes – Shimmering Lavender Grey, Charcoal with Gold
- Indes Galantes – Shimmering Gunmetal, Matte Plum
Find them HERE
NARS Sarah Moon Kohliner
- Witching Hour – Iridescent Charcoal
- Sichuan – Rust Brown
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
NARS Sarah Moon Eyelashes
- Numero 9
- Numero 10
Find them HERE
NARS Sarah Moon Get Real Audacious Eye and Lip Set
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.
- Two mini audacious lipsticks, Leslie & Bette
- Black Moon Audacious Mascara
NARS Sarah Moon Mind Game Mini Lip Glide Coffret
- No 675
- Chez Claude
I am loving this shade range. It is so good. I also really the doe-foot applicator on these as it is really slim and perfect for precision application.
NARS Sarah Moon Give In Take Dual Intensity Eye & Cheek Palette
Find it HERE. Check out these gorgeous shades!!
- Six shades of Dual Intensity Eyeshadow – I, II, III, IV, V, VI
- Three shades of Dual Intensity Blush – I, II, III
Because this is a wet and dry formula, I have done 2 lots of swatches for you.
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.
