NARS is already a major makeup heavyweight, but now they're thinking about what goes on your face before that Orgasm blush. The brand's inaugural range of skincare products, NARSskin, arrives this week, and the nine piece set has everything from an eye cream to a gel mask. The whole concept is light, light, light—or in other words, it's all about brightening up your skin before the makeup goes on.
In terms of pricing, here's what you need to know: the collection ranges from $29 (Purifying Foam Cleanser) to $72 (Optimal Brightening Concentrate, a serum). A particular standout is the Double Refining Exfoliator ($34) which uses fruit acids to refine the skin's surface.
The line launches online and in-store at Saks and NARS on August 1, which means as of Wednesday, you'll have everything you need to repair that sun damage you got at the beach last weekend.
