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 array of four colours comes in a modern design that is beautifully executed. The palette comes with a small brush and velveteen case and is much larger than a typical Nars blush or eyeshadow duo–the compact size is just over 2 x 3 inches.

The set comes in a stunning red-ribboned box that is very Nars-inspired. 

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.

The Kadoki Kabuki Lip Coffret - a luxurious set of three lip colors (Takebue, Ougi, and Botan) packaged with a lip brush. The colours are elegant, featuring a deep red, a deep pink.

Nagauta Kabuki Brush Set - this wooden bento box with a red lacquered interior holds five similarly styled brushes, including two new brushes exclusive to the set. This includes the Kabuki Eye Brush, the Botan Brush, the Ita Brush, the Yachiyo Brush, and the KabukiLip brush.

NARS Mie Kabuki Mini Soft Touch Shadow Pencil Coffret - The small size of the pencil is just right for these bold colors. The colors are Tall Tale (deep metallic purple), Magic Moon (deep metallic navy blue), Ballets Russes (silver), Aigle Noir (black infused with gold shimmer), Palladium(turquoise with silver glitter) and Skorpios (copper).

Kuroko Kabuki Mini Nail Polish Coffret - These include Yoshiwara (red), Shiro-Nuri (white), Kata (black) and Senryou(gold). The polish bottles are mini-sized.

NARS Larger than Life lipglosses - have started to arrive at Sephora stores.  These stunners have an opacity and shine that’s very pleasant and wearable and include, Tiber(a deep nude), Como(a pink-mauve) and Gold Digger(a shimmery nude).

ESL Notes: The collection captures the exquisite artistry of Japan’s Kabuki theatre. Every detail is a vibrant, modern, iconic interpretation of the centuries-old dramatic form.
