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.
What do you think?

I was really tempted by this set, but I knew I couldn't get away with Stourhead. I really like Sex Machine, though, and Biscayne Park looks really beautiful with your skintone.
I was tempted by this cute set, but I still haven't pulled the trigger on it. I really like all of the colors, but Stouthead is definitely lighter than I expected. I love Sex Machine on you!
What a cute set! I love Sex Machine though I don't seem to be able to wear NARS matte lip crayons coz they dry out my lips terribly, boo hoo! Although I love the deep and bright shades on you, you can definitely pull off the neutral/light shades too!
These are gorgeous and great everyday shades! <3
Biscayne Park is my favorite of the three, it looks so flattering on your skintone!
I love the bottom 2
I thought about getting this set but I have Sex Machine so it wouldn't be a bargain. I really like Nars lip crayons in general.
I was so close to buying this, but I knew I'd never wear the pale pink. I'll be honest, I mostly wanted ithe kit for Biscayne Park, so I can wear it to Key Biscayne (my fav beach in miami) haha Such a shallow reason to buy makeup I know 😉 lol
I almost caved on this, now I'm rethinking my decision!
It's so hard to rock those pale pinks when we've got medium skin. I think you rock them all very well.
I nearly caved and bought this trio but I'm worried that they'd be too drying for me. They look great on you.
Such a pretty set of colors! <3 I like they come in a case.
I love the case (maybe more than the makeup… what?!) Great lip shades though.
How beautiful are those shades? And the packaging is amazing! All three look great on you!
My gosh – this set is so pretty and I am loving the case. Girl… you are looking fabulous in those lipies 😀
What a pretty trio! All look wearable for me too!
This is a great set. I was debating picking it up, I really like Biscayne Park.
Sex Machine is my favorite color of the three.
This set is fabulous!
