A couple of months ago I passed by my nearest Sephora to claim my birthday gift. If you are a Sephora Beauty Insider every year for your birthday the beauty store gives you a little sample treat as a gift. This year Sephora gifted me with two of the sample size versions of Nars’ Lip Pencils. Along with my purchase I also redeemed some of my points and scored a great mini fragrance.
Elizabeth and James Nirvana in White Mini Rollerball
This perfume smells strong when it’s applied but once it blends onto your skin it leaves you with a beautiful musk scent. The main notes on this fragrance are peony, muguet, and tender musk. The fragrance makes me feel sophisticated. Plus this is the perfect size to carry with you on the go. I also would like to try the black version of this fragrance which I took a whiff of at the store and it smells less musky and more sweet.
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella
This lip pencil goes on smooth and the color is very vibrant. It’s such a deep red that I’m not entirely sure I can pull it off. I actually always go for rosy lipsticks so this color in particular was too much for me. Also this version is matte so the color stays put for quite some time. In addition, I’m not really a fan of matte lipsticks since they can sometimes feel dry.
Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien
I love this color! The rosy pink color is perfect for me; not too dark and not too light. I fell in love with this lip pencil and unlike the one above this version is satin so it feels super soft and smooth. I’ve actually been using this one so much lately and unfortunately the pencil is almost done. I’m definitely going to buy the full size version of it because now I can’t see myself without it.
