All About Nars (A hodge podge of Nars tidbits!)
Read all about the inspiration behind the new spring collection at the Nars website:
From the site Beauty Marked:
Another of my favourite combinations, that epitomizes the concept of Makeup Wardrobing, is the Iceland Duo eyeshadows," recalls Uzo. "Iceland looks white in the compact. On, Iceland Duo has a slightly lavender blue side to it and the other side has an almost mint green look to it. So when you place either of these shadows on top of a colour that is in a a similar colour family to the shadow, it tones down the colour without taking anything away from the richness of the pigment. It's an amazing Duo. I think every NARS client should have this one. This older, classic, member of the collection works perfectly with all the newer, bolder colours too. Iceland Duo is so useful if you want to take your colour down a couple of shades, if your not ready for full on colour."

The trivia question:
What store did Nars launch his collection?
Sidenote: I feel bad that these trivia questions have been so lame. It is practically impossible to find trivia goodies on the man or company.
It is like a secretive society.
Like a Knights of Templar of Beauty.
