Nars Modern Odyssey

The Fall 2007 Nars collection isn’t going to be on counters until September, but I got a peek at the whole thing. Now Nars is one of those brands whose product you either already love and will buy them or you won’t. Nars customers, I suspect, know exactly what they want and exactly what they’re […]
