I was very excited to find out that NARS was including a blush palette in their Holiday 2013 collection. However, once I started to research it, I found a lot of people commenting on how controversial the collection was because of the obvious link to Guy Bourdin, a photographer known for his objectifying pictures that intend sexual, “abusive” tones. NARS is known for it’s raunchy product names and “innovative” leadership, so it really doesn’t come as a surprise that this collection highlights those aspects of the brand. It has been increasingly interesting to me, though, how this markets towards women. I don’t know who the target market is for NARS, but I really would be curious to hear about what the marketing strategy was for this one!
Do things like this matter to you, or is good makeup only good makeup?
