Brand Documentary Magazine No 36 NARS 

The cosmetic brand Nars was founded in 1996 in New York by French makeup artist Francois Nars. At launch, the brand offered only 12 shades of lipstick, but the inimitable colors offered were an early demonstration of the brand's strengths. Nars was also among the first to make unconventional choices of models for commercial beauty campaigns, boldly suggesting a new idea of feminine beauty.

Brand, balance, and perspective. 

B Magazine dedicates each issue to the story of one specific brand, which is one of the well-balanced brands that JOH. discovers from around the world based on four standards: beauty, practicality, price, and philosophy. And each issue is packed with B's unique insights and in-depth analysis. 

Brand Documentary Magazine receives no advertising profits or financial support from the brands it introduces.
