IMG_0177 IMG_0179 IMG_0184This is so exciting and I’m over the moon to be the first blogger to announce this collaboration. My two favourite brands, NARS and Space NK have come together to create The Modern Minimalist beauty box.

It retails for £60 and launches in Space NK stores and online on February 2nd. So there’s the vital information, now let’s get onto the good stuff… what’s inside!

The box is pretty much “a look in a box” and it was created by the NARS UK makeup ambassador Andrew Gallimore. The most exciting product inside the box is full a size version of the new Velvet Matte Skin Tint, which you can pick in your shade before buying the box. I absolutely love the tube packaging of this foundation and although it’s matte, which isn’t usually my thing, I’ve found this foundation to sit really nicely on the skin and blend in to look very natural. I apply it with a damp makeup sponge and it looks beautiful on the skin.

As well as the foundation you’ll get a mini Audacious Mascara in Black, a mini Lip Gloss in Priscilla, a mini Large Than Life Black Eyeliner, a mini Blush in Orgasm and a mini Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien. There’s no denying the value of this box is incredible! So many amazing minis that you can throw straight into your handbag and use on the go for a subtle, elegant look that would pretty much suit anyone.

Die hard NARS fans or those of you who are new to the brand and want to try it out, be prepared for 2nd Feb – I’m pretty sure you’ll want to get your hands on this one.

    This sounds like a perfect way for a Nars newbie (like me!) to give the brand a go! Other than their Sheer Glow foundation, I am yet to try anything else from Nars, but I always swoon whenever I walk past one of their counters. Thank you for the heads up!

    Wow, such a beautiful set! I wish we could get it in the US. I’ve been dying to try their new Velvet Matte Skin Tint! x

  16. I usually don’t find any value in boxes like this as they throw in a bunch of crap and one decent product but this one actually looks great and a real value for money! If I Iike the foundation I may very well invest!

  19. I’m such a huge Nars fan, i was expecting this to be more than £60, it’s amazing value for money. I’ll be trying the matte skin tint when it launches in February, love a nars base.

    What an amazing kit!! Nars is a wonderful brand, especially for those of us gluten free girls!!

  34. Lucy Birchall says:

    I can’t believe this is actually pretty *affordable*, considering the size of the products you get. I’ve been reading a lot of reviews of the new Matte Skin Tint and think it sounds totally what I’ve been after, so to have the additional products alongside it sounds like such a treat!

  35. Katherine L. says:

    Nars has some incredible products. I wish they did mini-collections like this elsewhere. So lucky!

  36. Pretty pacakging! Everything looks so nice, but the audacious mascara is horrible!
