I have already placed an order for the Eye Kit and a copy of the Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself. François will also be making a personal appearance in Chicago on Saturday, May 21st 2011 from 2 to 4 pm at Nordstrom Michigan Avenue to sign copies of the beauty book.

After meeting François at the NARS Loves Chicago Event and getting a gorgeous makeover done by NARS national makeup artist Francine Phillips, you bet I will definitely attend the event this time. Expect more pics to come!

The Makeup Your Mind: Express Yourself beauty book and makeup kits are now available at Nordstrom.

  1. I got the make up your eyes set and I have to say the pallet alone is worth the price. you get 6 vivid colors that work for day or evening. Bought as duo’s it would cost you 99$ but you get a full mascara a travel sixe pro prime and a travel size makeup remover that a 1/3 the size of a regular bottle for 854 what a deal. I had to get it. Also the new colors for summer are amazing.
