"With some of the most famous faces in fashion represented, the visionary behind NARS Cosmetics tells his story in beautiful close-up color, with snippets of remembrances and inspirations. He includes the communion looks of both his parents and makes it clear beauty begins with beautiful skin."
"The overall physical presence of the book is astoundingly beautiful, which, when combined with its visual chronicle, almost guarantees the book to become a complete hands down standout among its genre. What is also quite apparent within is the influence that all of his "idols" had on him especially when Nars took a greater interest in his work as a photographer. To say that Fran ois Nars displays his feast of talents might be an understatement, but rather than an ode, the book reads much more like diary of his career."
--New York Journal Of Books
"The book is an aesthetic trip down memory lane, a voyeur's peek, if you will, into the creative force who helped shape beauty. Bold, beautiful imagery, and stunning typographic solutions purposefully mirror the NARS cosmetics brand. Every page magnifies the depth of the ever-inspiring artist behind the name, who says, 'My work as a makeup artist, creator, and photographer is very connected... my goal is to make people look beautiful and bring out what is on the inside. I truly believe that beauty lies within our characters.'"
"This bold new book is like a visit to Nars' library, where he shows you all his photo albums, his portfolios of Vogue covers, his snaps of model makeup, and his years of inventing new eye make-ups working with favorite models (Naomi)."
