Nars Limited Edition True Nars Lip Pencil Set Swatches & Photos

If you follow me on Instagram, you may know I recently did a mini Mecca Maxima haul and treated myself to this beautiful limited edition NARS True Nars Lip Pencil Set. In today's post I am sharing pictures and swatches of these beauties.

True Nars Lip Pencil Set is a limited edition set from NARS and is available at Mecca Cosmetica and Mecca Maxima or from their website. This set consists of two satin lip pencils and a velvet matte lip pencil. The colors included are Luxembourg (Satin), Yu (Satin) and Provocative Red (Velvet Matte). Luxembourg and Yu are a part of the permanent range while Provocative Red is a a limited edition shade. The pencils have 2.2 gms of product each.


The set comes in this beautiful compact (pictured above) with a large mirror and a jumbo sized sharpener which is good as these pencils are not twist ups. 




 

Luxembourg is described as a bright watermelon. Its a pinky orangey red and is a perfect shade for spring/summer. This is a satin formula. This has to be my favorite of the three and definitely makes me excited for spring.

Yu is described as a shockingly bold pink. Its a beautiful bright cool toned pink shade. I don't have anything like this in my collection and am very happy with the shade. This is a satin formula.

Provocative Red is described as a fuschia rose. Provocative Red is not a shade I would usually go for but surprisingly I am really liking it and is a perfect shade for winter. Its a plummy brownish red shade. Its a matte formula but not drying at all and feels really comfortable on the lips. 

This is not a review post but more of a show and swatch post. Overall, so far, I am really happy with my purchase as I have been really wanting to try these pencils for a long time now. Individually these retail for 40 $ each. This limited edition set retails for 72 $ and is a good way to try these pencils.

Price - 72 AUD 
Available at Mecca

  10. When I read provocative Red, I genuinely thought it's a red color lol. Turns out, it's a brownish tone, yea? It looks stunning!
