Fashion’s darling of florals, Erdem, and makeup visionary, NARS, are love-you-long-time collaborators.

Twice a year for the past five years, the cosmetic giant has joined forces with the brand to beautify the models on its London Fashion Week runway. It was an official makeup collaboration waiting to happen – and since talk of it was announced, we’ve been champing at the bit in anticipation of its glorious arrival.

Now, it’s here! Two years of production later, the 13-piece ‘Strange Flowers’ collection, unabridged with the signature romantic florals of the House – which, in this instance, take inspiration from a 1984 Vanity Fair image of Molly Ringwald – is set to be a queue-around-the-block sell-out success.

With six new lipstick shades that replicate the blooms they take their names from – Moon Orchid, Bloodflower Larkspur, Voodoo Lily, Wildflower, Carnal Carnation – an expansive lip palette (new territory for NARS), two eyeshadow palettes, two blushers, a highlighting pencil, and the ever-popular mattifying blotter paper, the collection ticks all the beauty boxes, as well as being a mesmerising assortment of demure and daring hues.

It’s survival of the fittest in the race to snap up the lot!
