Romance is in the air! Design house Erdem have teamed with NARS on an enchanting flower-embossed collection to tempt your inner fleur fatale

The new NARS and Erdem limited edition collection may be news to us, but the duo go way back. For the past five years, the esteemed designer has used NARS exclusively at his catwalk shows, accenting his elaborate designs with the perfect floral flush.

The 13-piece make-up collection, named Strange Flowers, boasts an alluring range of pretty petal pinks and delicate rose hues. Take Voodoolay, a sheer muted lavender lipstick or Night Garden, a sumptuous eyeshadow palette of sparkling gold, copper-tinged red and earthy brown. Though the Lip Powder Poison Rose Palette is most definitely the highlight of the collection. Developed for the ultimate soft matte finish, your lips can finally say goodbye to tacky lip suedes that suck the moisture out of your pout.

“I love the effect of stamped-on, really matt red lips. They remind me of my mother who would always wear a red lip as a sign she was ready to go out and face the world,” says Erdem Moralioglu, in conversation with Vogue.

Strange Flowers is available at Selfridges from 15 April
