NARS Cosmetics Makeup Reviews, Swatches and Product Launches


After San Francisco and Chicago, is finally making a special personal appearance at NYC! Again, he will be signing copies of his books X-Ray and Makeup Your Mind as well as a limited-edition NARS Loves New York Set. The set features an assortment of four classic products resurrected from the archives by François specifically for the women of New York and re-named after iconic names in the city.

At the 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2010 show, Lisa Butler for NARS Cosmetics created a look that is clean and textural, giving a sense that makeup is there but not detectable from the plain eye. “The idea is not to be harsh. The look is part sheer with shades of green, brown and lilac fading into each other” said lead artist Lisa Butler. The key points include highlights of iridescence and gold to the cheekbones, light liner (almost invisible) and peach lips. “There is some shimmer so when the face moves around, the light really captures it. But there are no lines – no eye lines, no lip lines.”
