Let me tell you something serious. I’m afflicted with severely untreatable LO, lipstick obsession that is! Haha, gotcha ladies. So did you get anything yet from Nordstrom anniversary sale? of course I did and part of my small online haul is this Beauty Exclusive lip set from NARS. A steal at $49 ($81 value), Ultimate NARS Lip Pencil Kit features three full-sized neutral lip crayons nestled in artsy case plus a sharpener. Scroll down for for more deets and pics!
The case although made from plastic is hefty and lovely. Click- open and you’re greeted with ginormous mirror as big as the case itself. Tossing a cutesy pencil sharpener is a smart idea, not groundbreaking by all means but c’mon girl, we do need it!
A great lover of bold hues, it’s quite a surprise that I settled for something neutral. So what convinced me to walk the unfamiliar path? well I’ve been hunting for the perfect matte nude that will transport me back to the 90s, my heyday. Sex Machine (pink brown) sounds like it. But buy one when I can have three, greed is the answer my friend.
There are two satin pencils and one matte from the kit. Stourhead is pasty pink, the dud because it doesn’t match my medium skin tone; Biscayne Park is peachy nude; Sex Machine is pink brown with micro shimmer, which isn’t entirely matte in my opinion. All three are creamy and glide without resistance. While Sex Machine didn’t give me the 90s vibe, I still like it overall.
