When it comes to buying lip products, most of the time I opt for the nudes and the pink shades, I love the everyday neutral shades; but lately I have been loving the dark vampy shades more, so when the NARS Summer 2015 Gifting Sets becomes available on Mecca Cosmetica, I purchased True NARS instead of Ultimate NARS.

There are three full sized lip pencils included in the True NARS Lip Pencil Set, two of these shades are from the permanent range and one is a limited edition shade.

PACKAGING
True NARS Lip Pencil Set comes packaged in a plastic rectangle shape case, on the cover it has a pretty colour combination of blue, red, purple and white splatter design and when you open the case there is a big full sized mirror, which explain the heaviness and the bulkiness of the set. Inside the container there is three specific slots to hold the lip pencils in place, the slots are not removable, so the case can't be used for other purpose.

LIP PENCILS INCLUDED
True NARS Lip Pencil Set comes with three NARS Lip Pencils in two finishes. Yu and Luxembourg are both from the permanent range and both are a Satin finish. Provocative Red is a limited edition shade and it is a Velvet Matte finish. The set also comes with a mini sharpener and all the lip pencils included are Made in Italy.

PROVOCATIVE RED

NARS Provocative Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
NARS Provocative Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

NARS "Provocative Red" Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is described as a limited edition fuchsia rose, it is a brownish dark red plum shade with a non-drying, neither hydrating matte finish. Provocative Red is very pigmented, it does not stained the lips and it is easily removed with makeup remover. The colour worn well for five hours and it wears comfortably, it did not drag during application as the texture was smooth and creamy.

Provocative Red is my absolute favourite out of all three shades and I am talking about its colour, its texture, its formula and I especially love that it doesn't stained the lips and it is easily removed.

NARS Luxembourg Satin Lip Pencil
NARS Luxembourg Satin Lip Pencil

NARS "Luxembourg" Satin Lip Pencil is described as a vivid watermelon with a satin, glossy finish, it is from the permanent range, so it is available to purchase individually. The colour is a bright pinkish red, the texture is very creamy and it has an amazing pigmentation. Luxembourg leaves a heavy stain and it is a little difficult to remove even with waterproof makeup remover. Luxembourg worn for seven hours on me and it felt lightweight and comfortable to wear, it was neither hydrating nor drying during wear.

NARS Yu Satin Lip Pencil

NARS Yu Satin Lip Pencil is described as a shocking pink, it is a darker version of the Barbie Pink, it is very creamy, it glides onto the lips smoothly and its full pigmentation covers the whole lips with one swipe! Yu offers that not-over-the-top glossy look, it was a little hydrating during wear and it worn well for six hours on me, it is also another lip pencil that is not easy to remove and that stains badly. Yu is from the permanent range and it is available to purchase individually.

MY THOUGHTS?
I went from a non jumbo lip pencil fan to a complete lover of Provocative Red, that's saying NARS is definitely doing something right, right?! As for Luxembourg and Yu, I am not too crazy about the colours and the texture, both are too creamy and I mostly dislike that it stains heavily and is hard to remove.

  1. I've never tried them, but the colors are gorgeous on you. The shades are very unique. They are not your flat reds or purples. Very FESTIVE! I like that. I think all of them look great on you. I'll have to give NARS a try.
