Poison Rose

NARS Poison Rose Erdem Strange Flowers Lip Powder Palette ($49.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a new, limited edition lip palette that features one lip balm and four powder lipsticks. Per the brand, the Lip Powder formula is supposed to be “buildable, blendable” and can be used “with our without balm” and “worn alone or layered on lips” (per the press release). I recommend using the Lip Powders with the balm or some sort of creamy base, because they are, as one might expect, rather powdery and dry, so alone they tended to emphasize every single imperfection on my lips along with my lip lines and gave me a painfully tight (I could feel my lips protesting when I tried to smile in photos) lips as the formula clung and clung and clung. With the balm layered underneath or on top (I preferred on top for easier and more precise results), it was a lot more comfortable to wear and more forgiving on my lips.

Moon Orchid

NARS Moon Orchid Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft pink with cooler undertones and a soft shine. It had a milkier quality to it, and there was noticeable color that slipped into my lip lines from the get-go (and continued to worsen as time went on). It had semi-sheer coverage (as expected based on the brand’s description) that covered fairly evenly in a single layer. The consistency was lightly emollient but adhered well to my lips and did not feel slippery while worn. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating, while the color itself lasted for two and a half hours on me.

Wild Phox

NARS Wild Phox Multi-Use Highlighting Pencil ($29.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a pale lavender with cooler undertones and a pearly sheen. It’s supposed to be a highlighter that works for “eyes, cheeks and face” for “fresh-faced radiance.” It sounded like it was designed to have sheerer coverage based on “how to use” information provided by the brand.

It had medium coverage that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. The consistency was creamy with moderate slip and a touch of tackiness, but it seemed to dry down within 15 to 25 seconds. I used it to highlight the inner tearducts of my eyes as well as on my cheeks, and it was easy to work with in both places. It wore well for eight hours on eyes and cheeks for me. I’d say the biggest “con” of the product was actually how little the pencil contained–0.04 oz.–which is more like a typical pencil eyeliner than a jumbo-sized pencil like this.

Night Garden

NARS Night Garden Erdem Strange Flowers Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a new, limited edition six-pan eyeshadow palette with a smoky set of shades. It was decent, but it definitely need a good eyeshadow primer underneath to maximize pigmentation, blendability, and help extend wear. The color combination definitely gives me “night garden” vibes, though I wish the deep brown (Fauna) wasn’t quite as dark (it was too close to Matira from a functional perspective).

Loves Me

NARS Loves Me Powder Blush ($30.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of gold pearl and micro-sparkle. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a firmer, thinner texture that was a touch dry in the pan, though it blended out without too much trouble. I did feel like the texture wasn’t as luxurious or as well-done compared to the more recent blush releases from the brand, unfortunately. On me, the blush stayed on well for eight hours before fading slightly.
