Modern. Audacious. Iconic. Born from François Nars' fascination with color purity and texture, NARS Cosmetics was launched in 1994 at Barneys New York with a collection of twelve richly pigmented lipsticks. Identified for its adventurous color, rich textures and exquisite design, the brand quickly became a modern cult classic. Today, NARS has grown into a full spectrum of fashion-forward and modern classic color cosmetics, advanced complexion products, professional tools, and an innovative anti-aging, makeup enhancing skincare line.
