NARS Celebrates 20th Anniversary Of Audacious Lipstick Collection

NARS Founder and Creative Director François Nars launched his namesake brand with a collection of 12 lipsticks. Now, in celebration of its 20th Anniversary, NARS pays tribute to its beginnings with the launch of The Audacious Lipstick Collection: lipsticks intended to be so shamelessly seductive in touch and texture, the sensation is absolutely audacious.

The innovative, pigment-rich formula delivers an intense, full-coverage finish in a single stroke, while nutrient rich ingredients are known to smooth, moisturize and volumize. This 40-shade collection ($32 each) features a full range of hues from neutral nudes to striking reds and bold pinks. Housed in a modern, matte-black metallic case with a magnetic closure, the specially designed sculpted bullet is embossed with the NARS logo.

Founder and Creative Director François Nars chose renowned actress Charlotte Rampling as the face of the Audacious Lipstick Collection. Celebrated for her work in films like “Farewell, My Lovely,” “Angel Heart,” “Stardust Memories,” and “The Verdict,” Charlotte’s bold choices and independent spirit have produced fascinating characters with indelible impact. For François, Charlotte’s individuality, daring style and natural elegance -- on and off camera -- captured the very essence of the Audacious Lipstick Collection.

NARS also introduces The NARS Vault ($500), a finely curated, limited edition set of 10 lipsticks and 10 nail polishes packaged in an exquisite keepsake box with a large mirror etched with a quote from François Nars. The collection features a full range of shades from neutral nudes to striking reds for lips and nails.
