Chaos

NARS Chaos Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Duo ($29.00 for 0.16 oz.) includes two full-sized jumbo-sized lip pencils in dusty coral and deep berry hues. Depending on one’s tolerance for slightly non-drying to slightly drying products, the set may or may not be worth putting on the wish list. I think that these two are not the best of the brand’s formula, though they are not the worst.

A full-sized Velvet Matte Lip Pencil retails for $27.00 and contains 0.08 oz., so this set contains two full-sized Velvet Matte Lip Pencils giving it a total value of $54.00.

Heartbreaker

NARS Heartbreaker Holiday 2018 Cheek Trio ($42.00 for 0.36 oz.) includes three blushes from the brand’s permanent range. Oddly, the brand’s often-released Orgasm blush fell short here; it was firm and stiff to work with, heartbreaking really… Luster was dustier in the palette than it has been in its standalone format but was easy to work with, just not quite the same in finish. Amour seemed fairly consistent with the last version I have, though.

Shredded

NARS Shredded Powermatte Lip Luster Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium pink with strong,w arm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation, though it wasn’t quite opaque in a single layer, that covered my lips evenly. The texture was lightweight, thin and fluid without being watery, but the dry down did emphasize my lip texture and some of my deeper lip lines. When I smiled, the color stretched comfortably and looked quite smooth and reflective. It wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.18 oz. - $144.44 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "full-coverage color in one swipe" with an "ultra-flexible, lightweight feel" with "brushed-metal" finishes and "lasting, smudge-resistant wear." The pigmentation ranged from semi-opaque to opaque, depending on the shade, with fairly even, smooth application with a very smooth, fluid texture that was rather thin but not watery. After a few applications using this formula (or the original Powermattes), I don't have any issues navigating along the edges of my lips, but the first few I ever did gave me the sensation that it was too fluid--too easy to spread. They dry down to a transfer-resistant but not transfer-proof, finish, where if I blot, I get a touch of color coming away, but the lip color doesn't move or slide around on my lips. They lasted between four and six hours on me and were, generally, non-drying. There was a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Scandal

NARS Scandal 6-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($49.00 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday release featuring six shades exclusively available at NARS. This palette will be most versatile when paired with your go-to neutrals, as the inclusion of both a deep brown and rich black made it harder to get anything but an intense, smoky eye out of it, though I gave it my best effort to use this palette and only this palette for a cohesive look! The quality was good overall with Stage Dive being underwhelming.

Hardcore

NARS Hardcore Powermatte Lip Luster Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a light-medium, golden copper with warm, rosy undertones and a frosted, metallic sheen. The lighter color seemed to make the shimmer/metallic finish really pop in this particular shade, as a lot of the shades in the formula have been deeper. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and it applied better with more even, more pigmented coverage on my lips than when I tried swatching it on my arm. A second layer can be applied for full coverage if preferred. The consistency was lightweight, thin, and a little more watery than other shades in the formula. It dried down to a transfer-resistant finish, and it didn’t slide around, but I could tell it wasn’t 100% flat/dry after the initial dry down. This particular shade did emphasize my lip lines/texture a bit more after it finished drying. It lasted for four and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Laguna and Fort de France

NARS Laguna and Fort de France Little Fetishes ($24.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains the brand’s iconic Laguna bronzer along with more recently-released Fort de France highlighter. The bronzer performed poorly for me–very stiff and dry in the pan, which yielded product in clumps and was difficult to apply and build up. The highlighter performed well, but the bronzer was so disappointing that I’d give this set a miss myself.

A full-sized Bonzing Powder retails for $40.00 and contains 0.28 oz. or costs $142.86/oz. A full-sized Highlighting Powder retails for $38.00 and contains 0.49 oz. or costs $77.55/oz. This set contains $11.43 worth of bronzer and $10.08 worth of highlighter for a total value of $21.51.

This set is exclusive to NARS and Sephora.
