When it comes to my makeup collection you will find boxes of eyeliners, base products and shadows hidden away under my bed where I hope it eternally escapes Paul’s eagle eyes. However, when it comes to lip products you will find only one or two (ok maybe fifteen or twenty) stowed away in my cabinet…
… Another item on my NYC wish-list last year (my may-as-well-be-in-laws went on a short break there and lucky me, brought some of my Christmas & Birthday gifts back with them from Sephora) was the NARS Steven Klein Killer Heels Lip Coffret.
My lip product collection is all over the place and until this little package arrived in my life on January 14th, had a few gaps in it. Especially if I was looking for something uber glam or subtle, however, this lipstick collection has got every occasion covered and will make the perfect travel companion this Summer.
Each of these five mini-lipsticks sport the rubberised NARS packaging that we all know and love (or hate as the case may be, I can understand the frustrations with the texture looking ‘grubby’ fairly quickly) and they look great on the bathroom shelf, spelling out the NARS brand name in striking white lettering.
As I mentioned above, this little collection has every occasion covered; Little Darling (above right) is a very light and sheer beige that looks lovely on no-makeup-makeup type days, Mayflower (above left) has become my go-to ‘my lips but better’ everyday shade, Jungle Red (below centre) will be a contender for my shade of the Summer thanks to it’s vibrant and punchy orangey red tones, Joyous Red (below right) is a more muted and rusty red that looks great with a Smoky eye and finally Fire Down Below (below left) is the vampy, blood red that my collection has been missing.
As with other NARS lipsticks, you can trust these to stay around on the lips for a few hours without having to touch up, particularly the semimatte, darker shades and they don’t seem to dry out my lips as quickly as other lipsticks can either.
I am so pleased with my latest edition and unfortunately I can find the set online anymore, however you can find some of the shades in full size bullets on the Nars website.
Did you get your hands on this coffret? What do you think?
Let me know below and I’ll catch up up with you again soon, until then though x
