New in Beauty

Trying out a new feature here on Krasey Beauty, what’s new in beauty. This week, we look at two newbies from two of your favorites- NARS and LUSH.

Throughout all of his extensive international travels, Founder and Creative Director François Nars has always found Japanese culture to be a great source of inspiration, specifically the concept of Kabuki makeup. Years ago, after traveling to Japan, François brought back a small, porcelain pot with a red film of color– Kabuki makeup for the lips.

Debuting this holiday season after years of development is the NARS Bento Box Set – a limited edition set of two Kabuki cups that were hand-poured with a new exclusive-to-NARS lipstick formula in highly pigmented shades containing Vitamin E. Housed in a handmade bento box, the set also comes with a Kabuki lip brush, designed for precise application by dipping the brush into the cup and blending until desired coverage is achieved.

Fusing two inspirations together, François chose Daphne Guinness to once again be the face of NARS with her evocative portrayal of classic theatrical Kabuki makeup.

The set will be available as of November 1st for $125 at Get on the wait list now at Only one thousand sets were created for sale in the United States, and just over two thousand in total were created worldwide.

Remember the LUSH Gorilla Perfume Gallery I wrote about a few weeks back? Did it leave you lusting to try all of the new Gorilla Perfume fragrances? Now you can with the scent-sational new Limited Edition Fragrance Kit, only $12. Choose between delicate Imogen Rose, fresh citrus of Orange Blossom, unashamedly sexy Lust, flirty and vibrant Tuca Tuca, earthy Karma, sweet and seductive Vanillary and the spicy notes of The Smell of Freedom. All in all, not a bad way to go.

    For the true NARS fanatic… The bento box is available at Saks now. Ok, well I don’t know about all Saks stores but definitely at THE Saks on 5th in NYC. I already bought mine. I’m still staring at it and have yet to dip my brush in to test it out.

    As much as I love Nars, $125 is way too much for me. It looks awesome though.
