NARS Introducing Modern Kabuki Holiday 2011 Gifting Preview

For Holiday 2011, NARS introduces Modern Kabuki, a collection of specially designed gifts for the ardent makeup aficionado, inspired by François Nars’ travels throughout Japan, his deep interest in Japanese culture, and his fascination with Kabuki makeup. The collection captures the exquisite artistry of Japan’s Kabuki theater. Every detail is a vibrant, modern, iconic interpretation of the centuries-old dramatic form.

HANAMICHI KABUKI-INSPIRED EYESHADOW PALETTE ($65)

Japanese for “flower path,” this Kabuki theater walkway that extends into the audience was the inspiration for this eyeshadow palette, featuring a Kabuki-themed design and accompanied by a mini Kabuki Eye Brush.  The colors are evocative of shades found in Kabuki theater- an icy white with flowers in rich shimmering deep rose and gold and matte black.

KUDOKI KABUKI MINI LIP COFFRET ($125)

Named for an element of Kabuki dance, this year’s take on the Bento Box set features three new vibrant, super-saturated, limited edition shades poured into custom ceramic cups. Included is its own Kabuki Lip Brush and sleek keepsake wooden box.

Shades include:

•      Ougi – deep red
•      Takebue – neutral
•      Botan – deep pink

MIE KABUKI MINI SOFT TOUCH SHADOW PENCIL COFFRET ($55)

A collection of six mini, top-selling and limited edition Soft Touch Shadow Pencils. Just like their namesake Mie Kabuki— which references a moment of high emotion culminating in an extremely dramatic pose—these creamy, blendable, long-wearing crayons create bold, dramatic looks with just a few strokes.

Shades include:

•      NEW Tall Tale – deep metallic purple
•      NEW Magic Moon – deep metallic navy blue
•      NEW Ballets Russes – silver
•      Aigle Noir – black infused with gold shimmer
•      Palladium – turquoise with silver glitter
•      Skorpios – copper

KUROKO KABUKI MINI NAIL POLISH COFFRET ($35)

The set includes four mini-sized, bold and vivid nail polish colors based on shades traditionally used in Kabuki theatre.

Shades include:

•      Yoshiwara – red
•      Shiro-Nuri – white
•      Kata – black
•      Senryou – gold

NAGAUTA KABUKI BRUSH SET ($225)

Encased in an ultra-luxurious keepsake wooden bento box with red lacquer interior, this exquisite five-piece brush set is named for the principal musical forms in Kabuki theater and includes two new brushes exclusive to the set.

Products include:

·         NEW Kabuki Eye Brush (exclusive to the set)
·         Botan Brush
·         Ita Brush
·         Yachiyo Brush
·         Kabuki Lip (exclusive to the set)

    I want the eyeshadow palette just to collect it, not necessarily use the shades. Not too sure if the shades would look good on me but love the design of the palette.

      The design alone looks really awesome. I do think the brushes look good as well. It’s not your everyday looking one too!
