This summer’s (Selfridges only) limited edition collection from Nars is a godsend for nude-lip lovers! Billed as the “Ultimate Lip Pencil Set”, the bright and lovely box contains three nude lip pencils in Stourhead, (satin formula) a lavender nude which is limited edition to this collection only, Biscayne Pink (satin formula), a browner pink, and Sex Machine (velvet matte formula) which is a more mauve nude:
And you also get a Nars-branded sharpener for the pencils.
Some long-time readers may remember that I’m not much of a nude-lip lover, but this is a cute set for anyone who is, having a range of pale lipshades, two of which aren’t too scary. The lavender pink of Stourhead however, on me, is one of the scariest lip colours ever.

I do love the NARS Velvet Matte formula, owning quite a few pencils already, and the satin formula has been a very nice discovery too, being shiny, but not too sheer, and feels quite moisturising in wear:
|Top to bottom: bare lips, Stourhead, Biscayne Pink, and Sex Machine|
For my colouring however, both Stourhead and Biscayne Pink contain a bit too much white for me to be entirely comfortable wearing them, but Sex Machine is a pretty good (if pale) “my lips but better” shade.
It’s a pretty collection, housed in a great and sturdy box, and if you like nudes, for £29 then this is a difficult collection to beat. You can see more at: Selfridges Nars Ultimate Lip Pencil Set
