Hello lovely Luuuxers!
During one of my most recent strolls through Nordstrom Rack, I of course stopped at the makeup section! I had low expectations, especially since my local Nordstrom Rack tends to be pretty picked over most of the time. But for once, the makeup rack was fully stocked and had some amazing things!
There were a *ton* of NARS products featured, including the Dual Intensity Eyeshadow Palette (which I think is still being sold at Sephora for full price!), a smokey eye palette, a third eye palette that was at one time exclusive to Nordstrom, and then these various sets of lip pencils. I remember when these palettes were released for Nordstrom`s Anniversary Sale many months ago, and I considered purchasing this set at full price. I am so glad I talked myself out of it. It was a good deal back then, and with the discount at Nordstrom Rack, it was a complete steal that I couldn`t walk away from!
This boxed set is called the `True NARS` lip pencil set, and it features three full-sized lip products:
1. Satin Lip Pencil in Yu (a `shocking pink`...it really is beautiful and bright on the lips!)
2. Satin Lip Pencil in Luxembourg (a `vivid watermelon`)
3. Satin Lip Pencil in Provocative Red (a `fuchsia rose`)
Both Yu and Luxembourg are a part of NARS` permanent line, while Provocative Red is exclusive to this set. Satin Lip Pencils retail for $26 at Sephora individually, but I purchased this beautiful set of three for a total of $35, or just a little over $11 per pencil. Those are drugstore prices, folks!
There was also a second set of lip pencils at my Nordstrom Rack called the `Ultimate NARS` set, which featured three lighter, more nude shades. I passed on that one, though, because the shades were not really my style. I recommend checking it out though if you enjoy pastel nude shades!
The formula of these pencils is absolutely top of the line. The pigmentation is incredible and true to color, and they condition my lips and last a long time without bleeding out. They do have a satin finish, but it isn`t glossy, so they just make my lips look healthy and vibrant. I really enjoy wearing these and I can`t wait to wear them more in the warmer months. It is so difficult to pick a favorite, but right now it has been Provocative Red, just because it is the most appropriate looking shade for winter months. I am really excited to get some more wear out of Luxembourg and Yu!
