The Nars Christopher Kane collection is based on the concept of neon neutrals. There are a few surprising, never-seen-before colors and textures in this collection that you shouldn’t miss. A little background on fashion designer Christopher Kane:
The designer has always been acknowledged as both a precocious and truly gifted talent. Christopher Kane has quickly matured and grown to become one of the powerhouse labels of British fashion with one of the biggest international profiles. The catwalk shows, held during London Fashion Week, are a widely acknowledged highlight of the international fashion calendar. Developing his highly creative and playful signatures of constant innovation, rebellious femininity and extraordinary skill, his clothes continue to surprise and seduce with their ineffable sense of chic.
Two truly unique, over-the-moon items that I’ve never seen before from any line Nars Multiples in Violet Atom and Quantum ($39 each). Please be very, very careful about missing these. We aren’t likely to see something this special in a high-end line very often–these are well-executed special edition items. Quantum is exclusive to Nars online (and Nars boutiques), which has the full collection. Violet Atom is currently available at Nordstrom, Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
I’ve been reaching for Quantum as a summer blush nearly every day. It’s gorgeous applied, although it may look a little intimidating in the tube. Before I say more, here are too-heavy swatches of each:
Here’s the surprise– Quantum sheers out to the prettiest duo-chrome pink/violet that looks stunning on both warm and cool skin. It’s amazing over a bronzer–it gives that perfect summer pink that looks heaven-sent. There’s a glow and luminosity to it that I’ve never been able to obtain from any other cool pink blush:
Violet Atom is a must for anyone that loves unusual highlighters and/or has cool skin. There’s a violet undertone to it that’s very unusual. I would think it’s going to look amazing on deeper skin tones. Here’s a video featuring Violet Atom so you can see it (applied heavily) on lighter skin:
Of the two, Quantum is the one not to miss. If you can, both are well worth a look. Quantum is exclusive to Nars online (and Nars boutiques), which has the full collection. Violet Atom is currently available at Nordstrom, Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, and Saks Fifth Avenue.
