NARS 8412 Melrose Boutique

April 4, 2014

I made my first trip to the NARS Boutique in Los Angeles on Melrose last weekend (follow them on Twitter @NARS8412Melrose or the official NARS account @NARSissist). The boutique has a sleek and modern design with large wall-sized NARS prints, clean crisp kiosk displays and individual mini booths in front of large mirrors for makeup application. One of the artists helped show me how to use the new contouring powders. In addition I loved playing with the new brush line and matte multiples. The Melrose store opened in late 2012 – if you haven’t been to a NARS boutique before,  I highly recommend visiting one.

Some snapshots the store kindly let me take of their beautiful store:

Have you been to a NARS boutique before? If so, which one?

    I haven't been to a NARS Boutique but it looks so beautiful inside! I wish there was one near me.

    Hi Sabrina,

    What a great airy feel! It's fun to see how the California store compares to the original version in NYC. Definitely a lot more room here… The lounge area is a nice touch!

    I can only dream, al the Nars I have, I have purchased sight unseen from the internet because we cannot get it here in the Netherlands. And still it's my favourite brand. I shall make a pilgrimage to a store like that one day ;).

    I visited it in 2012 about a week after it opened (just happened to be in L.A. at that time) and was blown away by how gorgeous it was! I thought maybe it would start to look a little shabby in time with worn testers and such, but your pics show it's still just as beautiful and well-kept as it was when it first opened! I was surprised when I saw the Bleecker one in NYC last fall…very small and cramped by comparison.

    Thanks for the vicarious trip to NARS. It looks like you've been enjoying some quality time in the beauty boutiques of LA. Great pictures!

    The NYC store is like a tiny walk-in closet. The LA store looks much bigger & spread out.

    I've never been to a NARS. But the pictures definitely make me want to check out one. The place looks gorgeous.
