Meeting Francois Nars at Saks- Another Life Goal Achieved

Readers, I am currently sitting here, 7 hours later, still reeling after meeting the artistic genius that is Francois Nars. As I had blogged previously, the iconic artist was in town meeting fans, and signing copies of his amazing work. Being promoted was the Nars love New York set, which includes favorites such as Orgasm Blush, Uptown Girl eyeshadow duo, Soho Nail Polish, and New York Eyeshadow. Also for sale was Makeup Your Mind, and his long-time out of print book, X Ray.

There are few makeup artists that I absolutely adore, and Nars is one of them. His work, his vision, and of course, his exceptional brand have captured my heart. Meeting Francois in person only made me fall a little more in love with him as a person, as the man behind the brand was warm, personable, and genuinely charming. Each and every person that visited his table got his full, undivided attention, and I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to discuss favorite products with him, as well as some of the tongue in cheek names. Color me smittened, kitten.

After I stopped babbling, Francois was kind enough to sign my copy of X-Ray, Makeup Your Mind, and the NARS loves New York set. I should have better pictures of it this weekend, but suffice it to say that those are my goodies laid out on the table in front of him.

As I happily floated on out of the store, I did come across the holiday collection on display.

No swatches yet, but I can say that I absolutely LOVED each and every piece that I saw. We are talking new eyeshadow duos, new shades of matte lip pencils, a new highlighting multiple, and an amazing new eyeshadow pencil.

The Nars Holiday Collection is already for sale on the website, so definitely check it out.

Tell me readers, do you adore NARS as much as I do?

I have a bit of a love hate relationship with NARS - when they get it wrong you get glitter. All over your face. Whan they get it ight you get amazing shades such as their recent shade Mekong.
I would be equally awe striken meeting Mr Nars though!

how freaking exciting! I would have been really nervous hehe

I'm really looking forward to the holiday collection, even though I haven't even picked up anything from their fall collections yet

Angela, NARS was actually in San Francisco a couple of months back. Sorry you missed it :(

Krasey Beauty said...

Jen, I completely agree with you. Agreed on the Mekong love too. Meeting Francois was an absolute dream :)

Krasey Beauty said...

Em, I will admit that I was a bit nervous as I was waiting in line. He put me at ease very quickly with his warm personality.

I purchased only Mekong from the fall collection, but I have a falling I will be hauling nearly all of the holiday offerings. Eep!

Girl! You met Francois Nars?! LUCKY YOU! :(

Why can't he do a "Nars Loves Las Vegas" and come pay me a visit? :(

Congratulations though! That is so amazing. Glad to hear he was very kind and gave unidivided attention to all who attended. :) <3 Makes me love him even more.

Krasey Beauty said...

Angela, he just might make another stop across the states. There is still hope! ;)

Thank you, NARS does not make it difficult to love him at all. ;)
