NARS is a brand that I look at as a luxury and the products are well worth the money. Well, I’m talking for their eyeshadows. I have the Loaded eyeshadow palette and it’s one of the best palettes out of my collection. They’re pigmented, gorgeous shades and also you get a good mixture of mattes/velvets/shimmer shades.
But let’s talk about these Lip Pencils. This is The Kiss Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set.
Before we get to the pencils, can we just talk about this make up bag that comes with this gift set? It’s a sealed pouch which is holographic gold with 3D lips. 1. I am obsessed 2. It’s different and 3. It’s small and secure to go into your handbag.
Spell Bound | Looking for a shimmery/pale champagne shade? Spell bound is your match. Not so much as a nude, compared to Wild Ways. This one has more of a pink undertone which isn’t heavy at all. This would make the perfect lipstick for the ‘no make up look’.
Endangered Red | The deepest shade out of the four, a shade I’d use more in the colder months. Bringing out the deep berry/burgundy shade. It’s more of a reddy/berry shade and it’s the perfect for that vampy make up look.
Toundra | A deep brown to add to the collection, with a shimmer of bronze. More of a deep brown, which you could easily go from an everyday shade to evening wear.
Wild Ways | A gorgeous nude with a light shimmer/shine. A perfect everyday lipstick which will go with any make up look. You can never have too many nudes within your lipstick collection. This one has to make the cut too with the way it’s so creamy and just glides onto your lips.
I love the shades and I love NARS as a brand itself, but I have to say these aren’t long lasting what so ever. I’d say it doesn’t even last up to an hour on my lips, compared to other Lipsticks and Liquids – pencils aren’t as powerful, especially these ones. I love all the shades, they’re such a gorgeous range with them coming as a set. However, they’re not something I’d go out and purchase again which is really disappointing as I’ve heard such good things about NARS Lipsticks – that I thought the pencils would be just as good.
