If you love NARS makeup as much as I do you will love the NARS Holiday 2021 Collection at Christmas time this year.

***Right now get a free cheek duo with a purchase of $75 or more with code: CHEEKDUO

The NARS Christmas 2021 collection really focuses on blush and complexion products. The packaging is a hot pink with the typical NARS straps along the front side of it. They are calling this the Unwrapped Collection for NARS Holiday 2021.

When will the full NARS Christmas 2021 Collection Launch?

The full NARS Christmas 2021 Collection will launch in October at some time. For now there is only the High Profile Cheek Palette Available which is one of the best cheek palettes they’ve ever launched!

Are you wondering why NARS keeps releasing the same colours, for example “Orgasm” and just packages it differently? Is NARS aware that they are repetitive?

I love the look of NARS Palettes and love the colour of Orgasm but it is getting a little bit boring when NARS keeps putting out all of these Orgasm variations. If you feel strongly about this please let me know in the comments.

The best time to buy NARS makeup is around Christmas time because with the gift sets and extra eyeshadow palettes you are getting the best value for your money.

When is the NARS Unwrapped Holiday Collection 2021 launching?

There are a 4 new eyeshadow palettes (1 big and 3 mini eyeshadow palettes) in the NARS Holiday 2021 Collection.

The colour range goes is a lot of muted pinks and shimmers combined with some darker tones such as emerald green and deep browns. The mini brush set is a huge win because NARS brushes are such great quality. Check out the photo below for the new mini brush set:

There are 3 cheek palettes included in the 2021 Holiday Collection. There is also one big cheek palette with blushes that are similar to orgasm and a spot for a highlighter. Some of the holiday sets come with a reusable makeup bag too!

There’s also a new NARS product and that is the cushion which is an liquid highlighter and perfect for an overall glow. Included in the collection are also a whole new set of mini brushes! If you are familiar with NARS brushes you’ll know they are the best brushes to get and NARS rarely releases new brushes.

There are also 5 new lipsticks to choose from. Looks like NARS was in the process of discontinuing the Audacious lipsticks because there are only a few left of each of the colours on Sephora. The lipsticks in the NARS Holiday 2021 Collection seem to be more on the pinky nude side with one brighter shade of red. You can buy two shades in the single size or you can buy a set of 3 lipsticks. The set of lipsticks also comes with a reusable mini makeup bag that has a strap so you can use it as a clutch to Christmas parties.

Last year, the NARS Advent Calendar 2020 was all lip products which is now on sale in their last chance section for more than 50% off.

Lastly, there are 4 new Afterglow Lip Balm: one full size and 3 minis. These are in similar shades except there’s one that is very iridescent that resembles snow if you’re into the pearlized lip.

When will the NARS Holiday 2021 Collection be available?

The NARS Holiday 2021 Collection will be available September to October in the United States and Canada. The best place to buy the NARS Holiday 2021 Collection will be Sephora and Other big retailers such as Nordstrom may get some items that Sephora doesn’t carry but Sephora will have the bulk of the products.
