The world of François Nars and the makeup artist’s colorfully creative canvases continue to expand. Though most of his fall line was released in August, September still brings the launch of several products from the fearless French cosmetics fanatic, starting with items for the eyes.
Housed in little clear pots of high-impact pigment are 10 of his new gel Eye Paints. Ranging from Mozambique, an olive color, to Snake Eyes, black with green shimmer, the products were crafted to be used as both shadow and liner. Each will sell for $25.
This month Nars also adds to his Nars Heart collection, paying homage to L.A. and Hollywood with the release of Nars Loves Los Angeles. Nars Loves New York was released in May and a tribute to Miami will arrive in November. Each of the limited edition sets includes products with that city’s top-selling shades, as well as favorites that have a cult-like following which reflect the feelings from the particular location – be they glamour, sophistication or playfulness. Each set will sell for $75.
Deep Throat Blush and Laguna Bronzing Powder for cheeks is paired with Trouville, a seashell pink nail polish, and Turkish Delight, a pink sherbet lip gloss. Add that to four eye shadows, and thus you have the L.A. kit. If you need something in which to stash your slew of precious items…fear not, Nars has that covered as well. Designed by François earlier this year, an Italian nylon crimson cosmetic pochette was introduced, decorated with perfectly placed purple squinted circles, which form a pair of lips. It will sell for $55. Pucker up; it’s going to be a beautifully bountiful fall.
