I received what appeared to be a used and/or tampered with eyeshadow palette. I went ahead and emailed customer service within an hour of receiving my order and included a picture....They said No problem, just send it back and attach the included prepaid return label on the item. I was totally satisfied with the ease of this and wasn't even that upset about receiving my makeup like that in the first place. Well it's been a month now and there is no refund AND they have no record of a return. Zero. Without tracking it's my word against theirs. I suppose I am partially at fault for the fact that I didn't write down the tracking return number but I mistakenly just assumed that they would have record of the tracking number they provided since it was a prepaid label. I didn't realize there was no record of that. Soooo, it appears that I'm out almost 50 bucks and I don't think I'm ever getting it back all because I was sent a USED product. I have never returned a single item there prior to this so it's not as if I'm a problem customer and they're regulating. Photo shows condition of item received. I've spent a LOT of money on their products since I was in my early 20s and this is how I'm treated as a loyal customer. Never again

I'm a beauty fanatic, obviously. I'm fascinated with everything beauty-related - all the new products and brands that come out, application methods, etc. Yet they always stereotype me into a creep who doesn't know the difference between lipstick and lipgloss. It's pure racism, lookism, and stereotyping. And I know much more about NARS and makeup than those "beauty advisors."

I've gone to various NARS counters and stores a few times. I'm SHOCKED whenever I'm asked, "Have you EVER worn makeup?" And they don't ask that to anyone else, even if they're more poorly dressed/groomed than I am. I have plenty of NARS and other prestige cosmetics, and they actually ask that - as if their stupid brains can't process any more.

I'll even come in wearing a FULL FACE of NARS or other upscale brands, and be dressed my best, and they still assume I won't buy and know nothing about trends, beauty, and fashion - when I know a million times more than they do.

My experiences at NARS and other makeup counters/stores have been horrifying, so I definitely don't do that anymore.

-1000 stars for the incredibly dumb, stigmatizing, stereotyping, judgmental, racist associates, at both NARS counters and NARS boutiques.

I give this 2 stars overall because most NARS products are quite nice - it's built itself a very nice, luxe, cool image - perfect for the affluent beauty-obsessed yet edgy Gen X crowd. NARS has plenty of good products. Their whole vibe/image is just so good. Francois Nars even has that perfect creative hipster look.

NARS has great liquid blushes, good lipstick, lip pencils, tinted moisturizers, a nice but little-known skincare line, and much more.

It's too bad the judgmental, condescending associates really ruin the NARS experience.

Their blushes, concealers, and foundations are very nice. I haven't tried much from them, I hope to try more.

I love the complexion products from Nars!! The concealer is so full coverage. The only downside is that they're about $30. If you color matched incorrectly, you're stuck using it for a while, like I did

They have foundation for any type of skin concern. They also have an amazing shade range. Yes I am very fair and I can usually find things my shade or very similar but shade range in products are extremely important so that everyone can get it

Blush is one of the makeup products I go through very fast. Using Narss blush, Ive been taking awhile to finish because the shades are so pigmented that you dont need to use a lot. Overall Nars is great!
