Company’s Description

With spring in full bloom, this rosebud blush provides a rich, pop of pink while the shimmering champagne illuminator adds a soft pearlescent sheen to cheeks and face, wear them layered to create a multi-dimensional cheek look or on their own for a softer, ethereal effect. Named for the brand’s first flagship address in New York City’s West Village neighborhood, Founder and Creative Director François Nars drew inspiration from the fast-paced city when creating the 413 BLKR Collection. He wanted to introduce shades in each category that were ‘quintessentially NARS’. Available exclusively at NARS boutiques and on, the latest debuts are modern, bold and timeless – just like the city itself.
