The Pierre Hardy for NARS collection consists of 5 pairs of nail polish shades and 2 special blush palettes.

This summer, Pierre Hardy introduces color palette that is inspired by his Summer 2013 shoe collection to the makeup collaboration. The 5 sets of nail polish duos are also specially packed in a small shoebox and dustbox, reminiscent of Pierre Hardy’s footwear packaging.

Pierre Hardy for NARS is a limited edition makeup collection and will be available at Tangs Orchard from 1 June (tomorrow) onwards. 

Moving on, is another much-coveted collection from Lancôme, designed by Alber Elbaz aka Lanvin‘s artistic director.

Three of the single eyeshadow colours had also undergone a face lift in this collection.

Contrary to Pierre Hardy for NARS, which features new colours, this Lancôme x Alber Elbaz focuses more on the super cute and fun packaging making the brand’s iconic products approachable and fun. Interestingly, Lancôme holds a special place in Elbaz’s heart.

“After school, I moved to New York, and every time I would go back home I would stop at Lancôme and buy my mom a gift. I have this kind of nostalgia and these kinds of memories about the brand,” he said.

This collection will be launched globally on 15th June. There will a launch event in Singapore that Saturday afternoon – stay tuned on the blog and Facebook page for more updates!
