«I never anticipated Orgasm becoming so successful. Looking back, I think the combination of the name and the shade made it so popular… Without such an audacious name, I don’t know if it would have become so iconic.» – Founder and Creative Director, François Nars

For the Orgasm X Collection campaign, François Nars photographed one of his current muses, model Yoon Young Bae, in a New York City studio, with an effortlessly glowing beauty look.
To recreate the collection’s campaign look, start by applying Radiant Creamy Concealer underneath the eyes. Next, using fingertips, apply Natural Radiant Long-Wear Foundation all over the face for an even finish.
Then, using the #20 Allover Eyeshadow Brush, apply Shade 3 from the Orgasm X Eyeshadow Quad all over the eyelids. Then, use the #21 Small Eyeshadow Brush to apply Shade 4 onto the bottom of the eyelids, Shade 2 on top of the eyelids, and Shade 1 on the bottom lash line. Then apply Shade 1 and Shade 2 from the Orgasm Eyeshadow Quad to the inner eye corners.
To define cheek bones, add overall dimension, and contour, sweep Orgasm and Orgasm X Blush onto the cheeks using the #16 Blush Brush.
Fill lips with the Orgasm X Oil-Infused Lip Tint to complete the look.

All products are now in stores.

Full-On Radiance by NARS

Spring is already in full bloom. Are you ready to be fully repowered? Experience François Nars’ revolution in skin – radiance from every angle. Recharge your complexion with a radiance-boosting lineup designed to reveal your skin at its absolute best with an eye make-up in nude shades that will make others green with envy, especially if they are wearing the wrong foundation :-).

Featuring the new, limited-edition SUPER RADIANCE BOOSTER – available in one universal rose gold shade that flatters all skin tones – that amplifies skin’s illumination with a pearlescent glow and lightweight, layerable texture. You can layer it underneath or mix a drop with foundation to customize an all over, radiant glow. For a subtle highlight, blend onto high points of cheekbones, bridge of nose, cupid’s bow and décolleté.

What I truly like is that you can use it to intensify the radiant effect of NARScult-classic complexion essentials:

– the high coverage, longwearing NATURAL RADIANT LONGWEAR FOUNDATION. NARS’ first 16-hour non-comedogenic liquid foundation that stays turned on by the power of radiance. Now available in 34 shades.

icon fan-favourite SHEER GLOW FOUNDATION. The glowing, natural radiant finish foundation provides sheer, buildable coverage and evens skin tone. Now available in 34 shades for more luminosity.

– and the bestselling, multi-purpose RADIANT CREAMY CONCEALER. The award-winning multi-action concealer, contours, highlights, corrects, and perfects with medium-to-buildable coverage and a natural radiant finish. Now available in 30 shades.

To finish off your perfect complexion, I recommend the beautiful new, limited edition SKIN DEEP EYE PALETTE – the ultimate palette of nude shadows created for all skin tones. Go from subtle to smoky with rich mattes, lustrous shimmers, and smoldering metallic shadows, infused with NARS’ Pigment Power Suspension for a high-impact, silky effect. Each shadow can be used in a multitude of ways for a variety of François Nars’ signature looks. Wear it. Bare it. Make it yours.

The collection will be available in Switzerland end of February 2013.



Another great product will be launching in March 2013: The long awaited, skincare infused Radiant Creamy Concealers from NARS, that had been spotted during New York Fashion week S/S 2013 when the house’s make-up teams were using them backstage. They come with an amazing creamy liquid formula and will be available in 10 different shades for CHF 40.- each.
