NARS Ultimate Lip Pencil Kit

NARS Ultimate lip pencil set

On the 1st July, NARS is launching the Ultimate Lip Pencil Set at Selfridges. Housed in a super gorgeous case that comes with a big enough mirror to do your entire make-up. There are three lip pencils in the set and one lip pencil sharpener. You can sharpen them and use the pencils to line your lips before filling them in with the same shade.

NARS products are pretty irresistible. There's just something special about them and when you're buying something from NARS, you know that you're getting something that looks great, long lasting and comfortable to wear. This set is no different, you certainly get what you pay for! NARS lipsticks are everything you want and more!

The three lip pencil shades in the set are Biscayne Park, Sex Machine and Stourhead. Two are satin finish and the other is a matte velvet - but all three are really creamy and lightweight. It's not sticky or greasy, it's so comfortable to wear, it doesn't even feel like you're wearing a lip product. 

NARS lipstick swatches in biscayne park, stourhead and sex machine

Biscayne Park (top swatch) is a medium peach brown. Usually, nudes wash my complexion out but as Biscayne Park is a warm tone with a satin finish, I think it's a nice nude shade for olive skin tones. 

Stourhead (middle swatch) is a cool lilac toned pale pink with a satin finish. It's too pale for my complexion but if you can pull off a pale pink, you'll love this, it's really pretty!

Sex Machine (bottom swatch) is deep pink-mauve with a velvet matte finish. Like with all mattes, your lips need to be in a good condition before applying this but it's not like any other matte lip products that I've ever tried, it's so creamy and moisturising once it's on. 

I'm gutted that Stourhead is too pale for me but the other two shades suit my skin tone and they are what I describe as 'Kylie Jenner' shades. The brown, beige nudes that are so popular right now and I can't wait to get in on that trend with these NARS lip pencils!

NARS Ultimate Lip Pencil Set is available to buy from Selfridges from 1st July
RRP: £29

  1. I love the Nars lip pencils. In fact, I'm a little obsessed. I'm not sure about these colours though... As you said Stourhead looks very pale but Sex Machine looks like a winner.

  7. Love the look of Sex Machine, I've heard so much about NARS lip pencils but never tried them because I have a feeling they'd be quite drying but maybe not if as you say they're actually quite creamy, £29 isn't bad for 3 pencils either although the middle shade wouldn't be one i'd use because like you i think it'd be way too pale for me

  10. It's a nice set, but I think the only colour that would suit me from it would be Sex Machine. If they had a set with darker colours I would be all over it.

  11. The deep pink colour looks so beautiful!! I've only ever bought blushers from NARS, I might have to expand my collection with some of the lip pencils. They look fab!
