Let's face it: Getting ready for the party is often more than half the fun. This is a fact NARS clearly knows all too well, based on the brand's new limited-edition Bento Box, which turns simple event prep into an art. The velvet-lined black wooden box features two ceramic cups lined with hand-poured lipstick formula in two colours: a bright red dubbed Maiko (Japanese for dancing girl) and Sakura (cherry blossom), a hot pink. We especially love the handmade, super-precise brush whose handle is wrapped in dried wisteria. Party on, ladies.
