NARS Artistry Brushes

NARS Cosmetics leverages its makeup artistry heritage with a 16 piece Artistry Brush Collection. From base to bristle, this comprehensive collection features an exquisite design conceived by Founder and Creative Director François Nars and Fabien Baron, of New York design firm Baron & Baron. Each brush is designed with the finest quality hairs and delicately weighted to provide the necessary balance for a professional and precise makeup application. The custom brush and packaging feature the iconic matte black finish with sharp debossed logo and signature pop of red.

“You cannot achieve good makeup without good tools.” – François Nars

Blends, buffs, and diffuses loose powder for a lustrous finish. Double domed with layers of full, soft hair to pick up and deposit powder evenly.

  1. Oooooh I can’t wait to play with these brushes in person!

  2. I can see a few that I would be interested in, but pretty expensive/out of my budget!

    I haven´t tried NARS brushes in general and I don´t know if I´m actually weird, but they look scratchy to me. Some look okay but others just seem cheap, however I´m intrested in reading the first reviews so the brushes might surprise me.

    Christine, do you know if this includes the Ita brush? I see something like it in one pic but not in the other. From what I know it was discontinued, are they bringing it back?

  9. I definitely see a couple brushes I want! It would be nice if they came to Sephora so I can catch them on sale lol

  12. *gasps* Brushes… my weakness… I see so many that I want….

  13. Avatar of Amy xamyx

    As much as I adore NARS cosmetics, even I can’t justify the cost…

  14. I’ve heard good things about that very rectangluar contour brush – I thought it was discontinued, but maybe they’re bringing it back!

    The Ita brush is available again now at Nordstrom. I ordered mine online.

  16. I’m surprise they are just now expanding their brush line. I hope they are good quality. As if I need any more brushes!

  17. Mel Rose

    That blush brush is super tempting! I won’t be buying these since I already have enough brushes but these look beautiful!

  18. Avatar of G G

    The blush brush looks nice, however I’m not as attracted to these brushes as I am to, say, the Make Up For Ever pro brushes with the dark wooden handles.

    #11!!!!! I love to watch Shaaanxo on youtube and she always uses this brush to contour. She absolutely loves this brush, and I love to see the way her contour goes on every time she applies it. She just recently made a video and mentioned this brush and she wished they still had it but they don’t. She mentioned trying to duplicate it since she has her own line of brushes. And now today I’m reading that NARS is coming out with it………..I’m so excited to get this brush!! Can’t wait!!

  21. Almost twenty years ago, I started my brush collection with three of the Trish McEvoy brushes. Then each year, I added one new brush type in spring, and one in fall. They cost a lot, like these do. Good brushes cost big money, a I haven’t found any way around that.

    I still have that same brush collection, and still use them most every day. I keep them clean, shaped and upright in a holder. I have never regretted buying them, not for a second. And each day, they are a joy to use.

    I think brushes are THE most important component of any individual’s makeup collection. I would love to see a brush round-up story sometime, with brushes ranked!

  22. So excited! they look phenomenal (as do most things in press releases) and I can’t wait to play with them once they hit counters! Ahh!

  23. I will definitely be checking these out in person!

  24. I’m looking forward to your reviews of these, Christine. :)

    The new brushes are scheduled to launch on 4/1. It was also communicated that there are production issues with the Ita brush and won’t be in store (I work at Nordstrom) until around the end of May :(

  26. Ella

    The most I’ve spent for brushes are those sigma ones….but I feel like I’m ready to make the plunge haha. I’ve been lemming a new cheek and contour brush for awhile. These look quite nice. Hopefully they are in person.

  27. Mary

    I have three NARS brushes: the push eyeliner (great for pressing powder eyeshadow unto lash line las an eyeliner- I love using NARS coconut groove), the smudge brush (awesome for smokey eyes and smudging liner) and the Yachiyo Brush (my favourite brush for applying very pigmented blushes and I also use it to apply my highlight. You do need to be careful when washing not to wet the handle etc. I’m afraid it will unravel so I am very cautious).

  28. Jasmine

    Its in stock on Bloomingdales!! just ordered
