Hearing about and then waiting for a new NARS beauty collaboration to land in stores is never easy.

This one looks especially tempting, though.

Nars showed off its first collaboration with fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu at his recent runway show during London Fashion Week. But the products won’t be online at narscosmetics.com until mid-April and in stores May 1.

The 13-piece Erdem X NARS Strange Flowers collection includes products for cheeks, eyes and lips and comes in floral packaging.  Moralioglu uses colorful flowers in almost every collection so the inspiration for his makeup collection really isn’t a surprise. Luscious flowers have become one of his signatures.

Word is Moralioglu has a penchant for makeup, too, and the collection has been in the works for a long time.  He was very involved in the process and the collaboration includes a new-to Nars  product – lip powder palette.

“This was never going to be just another designer collaboration, where you do five new lipsticks shades,” the designer said. “There was a lot of time spent talking about the idea of using products or textures that you normally would associate with certain parts of the face, in different ways. I like the idea of contrast and contradiction. You can tell a story as much with what you’re wearing on your face as what you’re wearing on your body.”

Along with the lip powder and a multiuse highlighting pencil, the collection also includes blotting papers and two dramatically different plum lip colors – sheer mauve lip balm Voodoo Lily and deep purple lipstick Wild Flower.

“You can tell a story as much with what you’re wearing on your face as what you’re wearing on your body,” the designer said.
