NARS Lip Pencils


If you saw my Sephora haul then you know I recently picked up my birthday gift. This so happened to be my first NARS product. Below is my review on the lip pencils.

Packing: Two lip pencils came in a rectangular box that had a birthday message on the outside of the box. The box itself is really nice and cute. The product was not a full size instead a sample. The full sized pencils themselves twist to get more product. This sample product does not twist so you just get the tip of the product.


Color: There are two pencils that are included in the sets. One is Rose Pink and the other is Scarlet Red. I personally love the colors! The colors are highly pigmented.

Wear: The longest I wore the scarlet red pencil was for 8 hours and only applied once after the first time. I was not expecting the product to last this long. Very shocking! I only have tried to wear the rose pink pencil once and did not have a good experience with it. I felt as if it did not work as good as the scarlet red. However, I only tried it once and its not fair to give a full review on it.

Price: The product I received was free through Sephora’s Birthday Gift. Both lip pencils are priced at $26. I would pay around $18 for this product. In my opinion these lip pencils are very similar to NYX Cosmetics lip products. The formula and texture of the two brands are similar in my opinion. I don’t really see anything special about this product. Its a very nice lip pencil but not worth the hype.

Overall Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Elf Eye Shadow

*For Christmas I received a 32 Piece Eyeshadow Palette I.Edition from ELF.
FullSizeRender (2)I have had nothing but positive reviews about ELF. ELF probably was the first makeup company I started with. The prices are great! You can basically find ELF products at your local drugstore.

My favorite eyeshadows are the dark color ones, I’m just more prone to darker colors than lighter colors. I recently tried the lighter colors and actually have come to like them thanks to this palette!

Only problem I had was when I used an ELF eyeshadow brush to apply the ELF eyeshadow, I felt like I had to reapply a few more times.

My overall review is 4.5 out of 5 I would defiantly repurchase and recommend!FullSizeRender (1)
