Makeup artist. Photographer. Iconoclast. Creative visionary François Nars launched NARS Cosmetics with 12 cult-favorite lipsticks in 1994, inspiring self-expression, creativity, and artistry with uncompromising pigment purity and imaginative color. Today, NARS’ boundary-pushing approach manifests from the pigments to the products to the photographed campaigns, shot by François himself—bringing high-fashion, high-style, and forward thinking to beauty.

NARS Single Eyeshadows come in a magnetic, easy to remove pan—use them in refillable palettes (sold separately) to customize your look.
What else you need to know:
Innovative Pigment Powder Suspension technology delivers incredible payoff in a liquid binding system to create rich, long-wearing, high-impact color. The addictive, velvety texture blends easily to create smooth, even color. This formula is available in an array of finishes. It does not flake, and is crease-, humidity-, and sweat-resistant. The highly-pigmented shades are blendable, lightweight, and long-wearing.
“Your eyeshadow is a mode of expression, just like your personal style. The options, textures, and finishes should be limitless.”—François Nars, Founder and Creative Director
