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.
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
