This set includes two new, limited-edition shades and two existing shades. The golden cosmetic case is inspired by the electrifying art of modern master Man Ray. Each jumbo pencil provides the application of a lipstick with the convenience of an artist pencil. The tapered end is perfect for lining, defining, and filling in lips. The non-drying formula is enriched with vitamin E and emollients for a creamy texture, while a combination of unique silicones ensures long-lasting, seamless matte color for hours. It also makes it easy to pair with another lip product for added dimension or as a tinted base. Whether it’s soft and neutral or bold and edgy, this lip pencil is ideal for making a lip statement. Available at Sephora.

UD’s proprietary Pigment Infusion System™ gives each shade its super creamy texture, rich payout, and superior color dispersion. Each shade comes in a smaller version of UD’s faceted Vice Lipstick case. This time, the case is gold with a black base. And just like UD’s full-size bullet, the teardrop shape provides a precise application every time. Available at Sephora.

NARS Altiplano, Naxos, Sorrento Kohliners

NARS Altiplano Kohliner

NARS Altiplano Kohliner

NARS Altiplano Kohliner

Altiplano

NARS Altiplano Kohliner ($26.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a muted, medium gold with warm, brown undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff in one layer, which built up to nearly full coverage with a second layer. The pencil had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that felt more waxy than wet or creamy, and it glided across the lash line without tugging as a result. It lasted for five hours on my waterline and eight hours on my lower lash line.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.02 oz. - $1300.00 Per Ounce

The Kohliner formula is supposed to be a “creamy eyeliner that is “buildable” and “blendable” that can be used on the lash line as well as on the waterline. The description seemed rather apt, and I like that they described it as buildable. It was definitely an eyeliner that could be smudged if done so shortly after applying (I would apply it to one eye at a time, if you wanted to smudge or diffuse the edges). On me, the color wore well for six hours on my waterline and eight hours on my lower lash line.

NARS Hydra & Titania Dual Intensity Eyeshadows

Hydra

NARS Hydra Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, smoky teal with subtle, warm undertones and a pearl-to-metallic finish. It had medium coverage when applied with a dry brush with a more pearlized finish, and then the coverage ramped up to completely opaque with a more metallic finish when applied with a dampened brush.

The Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow formula is a wet/dry one where dry application is supposed to have sheerer coverage (and that’s typically true) and damp application is supposed to have opaque coverage (again, typically true). Hydra is one of two limited edition shades for fall (the other is Titania, which follows in this review). The eyeshadow had a soft texture that was a touch dry in the pan but was fairly blendable on the eye, but I noticed that it had a tendency to look a little patchy as if it darkened from the natural oils on my eye and not so much from issues with blending. On me, the color stayed on well for eight hours both dry and damp.

Linda

NARS Linda Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark, coppery orange with warm, brown undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, while the lipstick was moderately creamy and had noticeable slip on the lips. The color went on evenly and did not appear streaky, even along the edges. It lasted for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.14 oz. - $242.86 Per Ounce

For those unfamiliar with the range, the lipstick is supposed to have "full-coverage, creamy wear" that's "long-lasting" and hydrating. I tend to find most of those claims to be true except that not all shades are hydrating (usually lightly hydrating to non-drying) and wear has been between four and eight hours depending on the shade with richer reds and the like wearing longest.

Blissful

NARS Blissful Blush ($30.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with warm, rose undertones and flecks of gold, plum, and teal shimmer that yielded a luminous sheen. It might be one of the more complex blushes that NARS has released in awhile. According to the brand, while it’s new for fall, it wasn’t marked limited edition so we should expect to see it as part of the permanent line going forward.

From NARS’ website, their blush formula is described as “beautifully pigmented” and “soft [and] blendable.” Blissful was fairly soft–it could have been more finely-milled–but had good pigmentation that was semi-opaque in a single layer but buildable to full coverage with a second layer, which I tend to find makes for a more versatile cheek color and gives the user more control over application. There were finer and larger flecks of shimmer but they stayed largely in place throughout the day. The blush blended out well on the skin, and the shimmery finish did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. On me, the color wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

NARS Aya Audacious Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep, chocolatly brown with subtle, warm undertones and a creamy finish paired with a soft sheen. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across the lips and never tugged. The lipstick felt moderately creamy, not too thin or too thick, and sat fairly well on the lips, though there was enough slip that it was noticeable on the lips. I did not experience any feathering over the five and a half hours this shade wore for, and the formula was lightly hydrating overall.

Formula Overview

For fall, NARS released six new shades of NARS Audacious Lipstick, one of their more luxurious, but bestselling, formulas. For those unfamiliar with the range, the lipstick is supposed to have “full-coverage, creamy wear” that’s “long-lasting” and hydrating. I tend to find most of those claims to be true except that not all shades are hydrating (usually lightly hydrating to non-drying) and wear has been between four and eight hours depending on the shade with richer reds and the like wearing longest.
