NARS Artistry Brushes Stylized Group Shot

Nars Artistry Brushes are a new series of lovely tools that I will be examine over the next few posts. Given the breadth of this collection, I’m going to proceed by first showing pictures of all of them in detail. I will be offering some thoughts about the brushes in some later posts.) These are available at, Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nars Cosmetics online.

Here is the entire set (click to enlarge):

Nars Artistry Brushes All LabeledThis post will cover the Nars Artistry #30 Precision Lip Brush ($26). This was way, way cooler than I imagined a lip brush could be, and the price is quite modest given the ingenuity of the design. This slim, elegant little brush comes capped to ensure that product doesn’t migrate throughout your purse or elsewhere.

With the cap off, the bristles remain hidden inside the slim case:

That is, until you put the cap onto the back. The pressure from the cap on the back of the handle pushes the bristles upward. The action is quite smooth and intuitive. Awesome! And you can use your brush in your gorgeous bag, which can stay clean.
