NARS, In the forum shops at Caesars  François Nars, renowned French make-up artist and photographer, has set his lens and brushes on Las Vegas. Known for his modern packaging design and provocative product names such as Orgasm, Sex Appeal and Rated R, Nars recently opened his sixth U.S. flagship store in the Forum Shops at Caesars. The boutique carries the full range of NARS products, as well as market-exclusive products showcased in NARS’ signature sleek, modern design. If all that sounds deliriously sexy and high-concept, it is — but the store is not without plenty of customer-centric perks and comforts, such as hosted makeup stations, comfortable seating for guests and a bookcase of François’ favorite things — an eclectic mix of objects that have inspired him over the years, including films, books and photographs. You’ll also get some wisdom that goes more than skin-keep: They’ve got iPads on hand to teach customers the best make-up application tips and techniques. Info: CM
