Friday Favorites: Lip Pencils

My Favorite Lip Pencils

It’s finally Friday again so I have my Friday Favorites for you again (previously just called “My Favorites”) and this time it’s my favorite current lip pencils. Was that enough “f’s” for you?

I’ve pretty much been partial to lip pencils since age 16 when I discovered my first bright red. I cannot remember the brand, but I know it was some super cheap pencil that I found at a drugstore. I wore that red constantly, despite the fact that it was super drying. I also vividly remember that I didn’t have a fat pencil sharpener at the time, so I would either use a knife or my fingernails to peel back the wood to expose more of the product. Oh yeah, I needed that red on my lips badly, haha!

Luckily now most brands have lip pencils out and they are much better than back in the 80’s. Oh, I also finally have a great sharpener for them (the Urban Decay one is my favorite.) ;)

NARS Lip Gloss in Angelika recently became yet another pink lip gloss shade I simply could not live without.

There are about 30 shades in this line now, which were reformulated for a summer 2014 release. There were 7 news shades, some of which I reviewed here. Angelika is one of the older, but newly reformulated shades.

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Angela

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Angela

Back in the beginning of September I wrote about the brand new NARS Audacious Lipstick line that came out for the 20th anniversary of the brand. They came out with a whopping 40 shades and they have a superb creamy, full-coverage formula.

I had been wanting to check out more of them in person since the range was so huge. At Sephora recently I tested a few out and decided to buy one that I just couldn’t stop staring at. Her name is Angela.

NARS Holiday 2014 Nail Polish Swatches and Review

NARS Holiday 2014 Nail Polish

There are three beautiful new shades in the NARS Holiday 2014 Nail Polish collection, which comes out today.

These don’t come in any ordinary NARS polish bottles though. The custom design on them is by architectural designer Chris Kabatsi. The print is a digitally-rendered Nebula print. The web-like black gloss on the front is his modern take on lace, and the bottle caps, which come off, have a soft, velvety feel.

NARS Audacious Lipstick Swatches and Review

NARS Audacious Lipstick

NARS Audacious Lipstick is a brand new line which coincides with the 20th anniversary of the brand.

These lipsticks come in 40 shades, all with a full-coverage finish. They have “nutrient rich” ingredients inside which provide lots of moisture and a very creamy, smooth formula. The new packaging is a black metal case with a magnetic closure, and the lipsticks themselves are embossed with the NARS logo.

Ten of the 40 shades are exclusive to Barney’s New York and those ones are Vanessa, Julie, Marisa, Kelly, Carmen, Dominique, Silvia, Vivian, Sandra and Ingrid.
