Promiscuous Lip Pencil Coffret | NARS






The Nars Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection has been a bit of hit within the beauty community over the past few weeks with a number of limited edition products that have had people getting a little bit excited; myself included.

The majority of the collection is available to buy from the Nars website however Space NK (my all time favourite beauty haunt) has had exclusive items in store and online. You probably all know about the gorgeous blusher palette that was available a few weeks ago, setting you back £45 it was pricey but very much worth it! I'm beginning to regret not ordering it now so hopefully it will come back again soon, the main reason I didn't is because I already own one of the blushers featured in the palette.

So, I held off on the blusher palette but once I saw Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup post a picture of the Nars Promiscuous Lip Pencil Coffret I have to say I made my mind up there and then that it would be mine. Nars is my favourite high end brand despite me being quite new to it, it's cruelty free, luxurious and the products simply work; they also last really well on my skin too. To say I have wanted to try the lip products from Nars would be a bit of an understatement, therefore as soon as this was highlighted to me I popped in a very cheeky order....that's me done now until that January pay packet.

Within this set you receive five lip products and a beautiful little make up bag to keep them in. Four of the lip products are Mini Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in the shades Sex Machine, Never Say Never, Dolce Vita and Cruella; the remaining product is a Mini Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in the shade New Lover. They're all mini versions of the full size product but to be honest they're going to last me a long while and do give me chance to see how much I like them, this will help me to determine whether I purchase the full size in the future as they do retail at £17.50 each, ouch!

The Velvet Matte Lip Pencils are my first experience in using matte lip products and they do not disappoint. I don't find them drying in anyway although I do use a lip balm before hand just in case. They last extremely well on me, they're probably the longest lasting lip products I now own; I have to say Cruella is something else!

I guess the only downside to these is that you have to sharpen them which is a bit annoying, hopefully NARS will look at other brands which have gone down the twist route with similar type products.










It's rather crazy what different lighting can do to a picture, however here above I've tried to show what each shade is like. If you're on the verge of buying this then I fully recommend you to do so, it is a truly wonderful gift for someone or indeed for yourself; you will not regret it.

I adore each and every one of these shades and I know that I'll be getting a lot of use out of them; my personal favourites are Cruella and Sex Machine. At just £30 I know I've picked up one of the best beauty releases this year, I've absolutely fallen in love with it.

Remember this is exclusive to Space NK so get your orders in quick if you want one of your own.


NARS are a cruelty free brand.

  1. Ahhh, so lovely...all of them! I really wanted the "Yu" colour that came out this year, but the price made me think again. I actually considered it for a while and then found out that the pencils aren't even twisty so you actually have to sharpen them which is a) a pain in the arse and b) a waste of product! I'm so damn frugal sometimes.

  29. Their color are so gorgeous! The sex machine is my favourite one cause it is a evergreen (i use nude all day and all night)! It is the first time that i found something about Nars which isn't too expensive, like it. :)

  32. Cruella is my favourite on you! This set is very lustworthy and a great way to sample lots of shades that you might not ordinarily have been prepared to shell out full price for :) NARS is definitely one of my favourite high end brand as well.
