Take a look inside the new NARS Cosmetics boutique, 1,200 square feet of beauty products from the founder and creative director Francois Nars. The new boutique, the sixth stand alone from the brand in the United States and now open at the Forum Shops at Caesars, features stark white walls with accents and fixtures, reminiscent of the brand's packaging, and a chevron pattern on the floor.
Aside from six makeup stations, find a VIP area with a bookcase with Francois Nars' books including Faery Lands and Makeup Your Mind Express Yourself, two make up stations and a seating area for guests. Also look for 413 BLKR products — named for the first NARS boutique — sold here.
Interactive digital touch screens show customers how to get complexion and cheek techniques, while a digital slot machine offers a chance to "spin to win" a deluxe sample. An 11-foot by six-foot LED screen shows short films created by NARS.
Ready to pay? Just look for the stand in the same shade as the brand's iconic Jungle Red Lipstick.
The soundtrack here was mixed by French deejays Les Jumeaux. Francois Nars himself and Fabien Baron of New York design firm Baron & Baron created the look for the boutique.
