What it does:
A true artistic collaboration from start to finish, the Charlotte Gainsbourg for NARS Collection presents her signature style through François Nars’ vision of beauty. The iconic chanteuse paints an intimate portrait of life as an actress, musician, and muse with a limited-edition lineup of personal pigment. Memories of London, music in Paris, and moments small and scintillating take shape as lived-in colors and tender textures for eyes, lips, cheeks, and face.
Inspired by her intimate experience with makeup on set, the Summer 2017 Collection presents a new look at personal style. Sensorial formulas and tinted innovations channel Charlotte’s signature look of smoldering eyes and fresh accents. Skin is as once perfected and natural-looking. Cheeks, flushed and tender, feel alive with emotion, while lips appear bitten with soft color. Like the artist herself, the collection personifies refined simplicity balanced with the edge of authenticity.
Au Poil Brush Roll is a deluxe faux leather brush roll adorned with gold accents that holds five full-size makeup brushes, each with their own uniquely faceted handle. This limited-edition set includes an Eye Blending Brush, Eyeshadow Brush, Concealer Brush, Face Brush, and Face Highlighting Brush.
Velvet Duo Eyeshadows are encased in a limited-edition mirrored compact that features two crease-proof NARS eyeshadowsinspired by Charlotte Gainsbourg French beauty. A deep teal shade with golden champagne evokes a beloved khaki coat with unexpectedly luxe accents, as a forest green with shimmering frost that conjures afternoons spent unwinding at Parisian slate bars. Wear alone or pair them together to impart Gainsbourg’s subtle smoky eye. The shades are formulated with pure pigments in soft matte and radiant finishes.
Hydrating Glow Tint is a weightless, oil free, illuminating skin veil that awakens dull skin for a natural, healthy-looking glow. This limited-edition, gel-cream formula evens out your skintone with sheer, buildable coverage to deliver foolproof, brush-free application.
The Cours du Soir and Nuit D'Encre Kohliners are limited edition and designed to line, define, and intensify eyes. Long-wearing, they're packed with intense pigment payoff to channel Charlotte’s signature look of smoldering eyes and fresh accents.
Lip Tints deliver natural-looking color with one swipe. They have the shine of a gloss with the feel of a balm with coconut oil, vitamin C, and E to help hydrate and protect lips. Available in two just-bitten, limited-edition shades, they evoke Gainsbourg’s effortless French beauty. Wear it alone, or paired with smoky eyes for subtle intrigue.
Multiple Tint is a limited-edition multipurpose stick for cheeks and lips. This limited-edition, sheer tinted formula provides a dewy, natural-looking finish with a light wash of color. Cheeks appear effortlessly flushed and lips look bitten. It's infused with vitamin E to help protect from free radicals and bamboo sap to help minimize the appearance of imperfections.
