Last year Nars released Promiscuous: Lip Pencil Coffret which was absolutely stunning but it sold out before I managed to get my hands on it! I was absolutely devastated and after searching high and low on ebay but coming up with no joy I decided to sit it out and wait until this years holiday collection…boy am I glad I did.
This year Nars have released their limited edition Laced with Edge Holiday 2014 Gift Collection with each item packaged in translucent acrylic with digital lace designs printed on which definitely make a statement. The collection contains a range of palettes, lipgloss sets and a Kabuki brush set but the first piece from the collection which made its way to my door was the Digital World Lip Coffret. I first saw the collection mentioned on twitter and no sooner had pre-orders opened that I whipped out my credit card and secured a coffret for myself. The set is still available but I would recommend picking one up ASAP as this will 100% be a sell out like last year!
Inside the keepsake box are a mix of 5 satin and velvet matte lip pencils with a mixture of rich, sensual colours perfect for the holiday season. I absolutely love the formula of these pencils, they are so pigmented with a very long lasting finish. I prefer the velvet matte pencils as I find the formula more wearable, but overall I love the easy application of these, especially for a make up rookie like myself. The set contains:
Satin Lip Pencil in Descanso: Tea rose
Satin Lip Pencil in Torres Del Paine: Peach coral
Satin Lip Pencil in Yu: Shocking pink
Velvet Matte Pencil in Iberico: Intense coral
Velvet Matte Pencil in Cruella: Scarlet red
Cruella is by far my favourite, I do love a deep red I find it very easy to wear in Winter and it just finishes a look perfectly! I was also surprised at how quickly I fell in love with Iberico and Yu as these are not shades I would usually go for being outside my comfort zone but I will definitely be giving these a go! I was a bit disappointed in the other two shades as they don’t really show up on me, I’m not sure whether its because of the formula or the colours but these just don’t do much for me! 3/5 isn’t bad though and I will 100% be picking up more of the velvet pencils come payday. As for the rest of the collection, I’ve definitely got my eye on the Virtual Domination Blush and Bronzer Palette and can definitely see this being my next purchase!
What do you think of the Nars limited edition collection?
