NARS just released their star-studded Holiday Collection and it’s literally everything a beauty junkie could ever ask for this Christmas season. Inspired by the iconic punk fashion of the 1970s, spruce up your look with shades that are filled with shimmer and shine, it’s just as bold as your attitude. Fans of cult-beauty brand NARS, can look forward to the likes of metallic lipsticks, limited-edition eyeshadows, and not to mention, highlighter palettes, featuring their iconic blush in Orgasm.

Set to roll out this November both in stores and online, there’s no question it’s going to go fast. So while you’re on the lookout for this new collection to drop, take a peep at the covet-worthy collection, below.

The Colour Collection

It may be the season for giving but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t splurge on yourself this Christmas! Let’s face it, when it comes to this NARS Holiday Collection, forget about waiting for your Secret Santa to get your hint and get yourself a gift after working so hard the whole year. I mean, a little splurging didn’t hurt nobody, right? (Besides your wallet, of course.)

Powermatte Lip Luster

Powermatte Lip Luster – in Blackheart, Hardcore, Combat, Pierce, Shatter, and Shredded, $40 each.

Metallic lipsticks are a trend that’s here to stay, and when we heard that the new line of NARS lipsticks was releasing a bunch of metallic sheens, we went crazy! These badass lippies are a true statement-making product and choosing which shade to rock this season would probably be one of the toughest decisions you’ll ever have to make.

Spiked Audacious Lipstick

Spiked Audacious Lipstick in Sheena, Siouxsie and Nancy, $46 each.

Nothing says punk rock than these studded lipsticks by NARS. Available in 3 shades, the NARS Spiked Audacious Lipstick was inspired by the rebellious fashion of the 70s that reigned superior in the UK back in the days when punk was on the rave. It may be a little audacious for some but the Spiked Audacious Lipstick in Nancy is a must if you’re planning to bring out the inner punk in you.

Provocateur Eyeshadow Palette

Provocateur Eyeshadow Palette, $90.

The year-end festivities call for a huge lineup of parties to attend. So what better to get the party started than to go glam with a smokey palette just like this one by NARS. Whether you’re a person who prefers cool or warm tones, the Provocateur Eyeshadow Palette is one that’d suit both.

The Gifting Collection

Ever been stuck in a situation where you can’t figure out what to get for your friend for Christmas? ‘Nuff said. The Gifting Collection by NARS might just be your best bet. While maintaining its edgy and rebellious accents, these gift collections come in smaller packaging that’s perfect for you to give to your beauty junkie friends or even to throw into your own to-go makeup stash.

Powermatte Lip Clash Coffret 

Powermatte Lip Clash Coffret in No Future, Rise Above, Raise Hell and Gimme A Fix, $70.

Pucker up because this set of Powermatte Lip Clash Coffret will keep your lips locked and fully loaded with four Powermatte Lip Pigments that are simply to die for. This power-packed foursome comes with two of NARS’ classic formula and two limited-edition Powermatte Lip Luster shades.

Hot Tryst Cheek Palette 

Hot Tryst Cheek Palette, $90.

Going bold on your lips isn’t your thing? Then maybe you’d dig this palette by NARS. The Hot Tryst Cheek Palette comes as a good combination for anyone who loves a pop of colour on their cheeks (maybe a little definition and shimmer while you’re at it). We’re thinking of serving up some Avril Lavigne vibes with this look if you get what we’re saying.

Riot Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set 

Riot Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set, $75.

Channel your inner rock star with a punk rock makeup look with these Riot Velvet Matte Lip Pencils. Punk rock lips can vary from bright, vividly hued pouts to deep purple shades, depending on the look you’re going for. The set includes 4 lip pencils that are mostly red-tuned and most importantly, it completes any fierce look that no one can beat. Talk about making a riot with these ones!

Ransom Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set 

Ransom Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set, $75.

Muted Mauve shades are somewhat considered punk rock if you’re ever wondering. Think about it, it’s like finding the right balance in your look especially if you’re going heavy on the eyes.

Manic Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set 

Manic Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set, $75.

First of all, can we talk about how cute these lip pencil pouches are? With safety pin designs embedded on the front face of the pouch, there’s no way you can go wrong with an edgy accessory like this in your bag. On top of it all, it comes with lip pencils that feature wine reds and soft nudes to top off your bold and strong look.

NARS Little Fetishes Minis

NARS Little Fetishes Mini Highlighting Powder + Mini Blush (left) and NARS Little Fetishes Mini Highlighting Powder + Mini Bronzing Powder (right), $36 each.

The term “punk” and “goth” come with certain connotations. So when NARS launched their Holiday Collection we were impressed with how they managed to translate them into these trendy and funky containers that are still relevant to their punk rock theme. You can expect sets that consist of a mini highlighter, a blush or even a bronzer that come in refreshing shades to complete your look.

NARS Little Fetishes Mini Orgasm Lipstick + Blush, $36.

If highlighters or bronzers are not your cups of tea, then this sets might just do the trick! Take for instance this NARS Little Fetishes set that comes with a blush and a lipstick in their most iconic shade, Orgasm. Obviously, it also makes a fantastic gift for that one friend who’s been obsessing about NARS for the longest time.

Underground Velvet Lip Glide Coffret

Underground Velvet Lip Glide Coffret, $36.

Confidence is key when you’re going punk! These spunky trios make great gifts for someone who loves lippies but can’t decide which shades to go for.

Orgasm Infatuation Palette and High Voltage Highlighter Palette 

Orgasm Infatuation Palette and High Voltage Highlighter Palette, $75 each

We had their lipsticks in Orgasm, their blush in Orgasm, and if it isn’t already enough, then this Orgasm Infatuation Palette is everything you could ever wish for this Christmas. Another crowd stunner to name is NARS High Voltage Highlighter Palette! Besides it’s stunning red and black embellished design, the palette is a dream come true for anyone who’s looking to bring out that lit-from-within glow that we all can never get tired of.
