Cleansing oils have been a staple in my routine for 10 years now and one of my favorite makeup brands, NARS, has finally joined the bandwagon to give us his very own Makeup Cleansing Oil.
The Makeup Cleansing Oil eliminates makeup traces and flushes out pores for more effective next-step cleansing without leaving any residue. Plus unlike other regular cleansing oils, it is made with exclusive advanced technology so you can apply with either wet or dry hands.
I have been using NARS Aqua Gel Hydrator and Brightening Serum religiously and they have never failed me. I can’t wait to try this out and report back!
The cleansing oil retails $40 and is now available at Neiman Marcus.

The long-anticipated Sheer Glow and Sheer Matte Foundations from NARS are finally here!
The two foundations first made their debuts at New York Fall 2009 Fashion Week and will replace the existing NARS Oil-free Foundation and Balanced Foundation. Sheer Glow is a glowing, satin-finish foundation that is great for those with normal to dry skin while Sheer Matte provides a soft matte finish and helps to control oil and shine throughout the day.
Lately, I have fallen back in love with NARS eyeshadows, especially the Night Series. These super pigmented eyeshadows are infused with microglitter and perfect for a night out.
“For this collection, I wanted to create something fragile and strong, and seductive but not aggressive,” said François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics.
Besides meeting François at the NARS Loves Chicago Event (omg omg omg!!!), I also got a makeover from NARS national artist Francine Philips who works closely with Ayako. The look was picked out by Ayako herself and she suggested a “smoky eye with very pale lips” to go with my fake lashes.
Here are some goodies I got from my little meeting with Francois Nars!
