2011 Holiday Gift Ideas - Volume 2 - NARS Holiday Gift Sets

I'm a big fan of NARS and their 2011 holiday gift sets (called "Modern Kabuki") have really captured me, especially since I'm also a big fan of Japan and these stunning Japanese-inspired collections include some really beautiful packaging and products!

These will definitely make great gifts (or for yourself!)

Hanamichi Kabuki-Inspired Eyeshadow Palette, $65 USD
Japanese for "flower path" - the Kabuki theatre walkway that extends into the audience was the inspiration for this eyeshadow palette, featuring a Kabuki-themed design and accompanied by a mini Kabuki Eye Brush. The eyeshadows are a beautiful pattern of an icy white background with flowers in rich shimmering deep rose, gold and matte black.
