Throughout his international travels, Francois Nars found a love for Japanese culture specifically the concept of Kabuki makeup. After traveling to Japan years ago, François brought back a small, porcelain pot with a red film of color– Kabuki makeup for the lips.
So after years of development, Nars debuts the NARS Bento Box Set for the holiday season– 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.
François again chose Daphne Guinness to be the face of NARS with her evocative portrayal of classic theatrical Kabuki makeup.
Only one thousand sets were created for sale in the United States and will retail for $125, and just over two thousand in total were created worldwide. These are definitely not lipstick pots you carry around in your purse. For that price, these pots require special care. 🙂
The set is not available until November 1st at narscosmetics.com. There’s a wait list you can get on right now at narscosmetics.com/bento.
Tell me your thoughts! Is NARS Bento Box Set worth it?
