NARS' holiday collection has just landed and it's taken a surreal turn

The holiday limited edition collection has been inspire from surrealist artist and photographer Man Ray

Photography aficionados and make-up lovers are in for a treat this Christmas, as NARS’ gifting collection has been inspired by modernist visual artist Man Ray.

A significant contributor to the surrealist movement – along with Breton, Dalí, Ernst and Magritte – Ray was also a renowned fashion photographer.

To celebrate Ray, NARS features several of his most notable works including Larmes (aka Glass Tears), The Veil and Observatory Time: The Lovers.

Love Game Eyeshadow Palette (£45)


Available from mid-October, the collection features vibrant new shades of lipgloss, eyeliner, lipstick and blush.

Among the new palettes consumers can purchase a contouring set and an eyeshadow palette exclusive to SpaceNK.
