Everyone has their favourites. When it comes to makeup, my favourite brand is NARS. By a mile. I am obsessed with everything in their collection. Some of my favourites? Their fantastic range of blushes, bronzers, and lip glosses.
During my trip to Los Angeles, I did a fair bit of shopping. I was even able to check out the NARS store. Yes, there was an entire store stocked full of different NARS products. I swear, my credit card was dying to be used! While I was there, the Limited Edition Guy Bourdin Fling Holiday Set immediately caught my eye.
They only had two of these holiday sets available...and they weren't supposed to sell them until the following week. Luckily, the saleswoman took pity and broke the rules. (So long as I promised not to post about it until after the set was officially released, that is!) Leaving the store with this limited edition set in my hands made me feel like a million bucks. I couldn't wait to try everything out.
So, what does the set include? Let's take a closer look:
It includes (Right to Left): Damage (Lipstick), Roman Holiday (Lipstick), Baroque (Velvet Gloss Pencil) and Dolce Vita (Velvet Matte Lip Pencil).
There are so many great things about this set. First of all, let's talk about the super cute packaging. Those killer red lips aren't just for show - they actually are a really sturdy case. You can use it to hold makeup or any nicknacks you have laying around. I'm obsessed with how cute it is! Definitely a good addition to the vanity.
Now for the lipstick shades themselves....love! I especially like that there was a real range of shades in this set. You have a light pastel pink, a wearable berry shade, a deep raspberry, and a sheer rosey shade. You can easily use these shades for either day or night. I just love that there was such a versatile collection of both colours and formulas. You've got two traditional lipstick shades, a matte lip pencil, and a gloss. Perfection!

Even though I love each and every one of these shades, I do have a favourite. While all of these lip products are beautiful, I find myself reaching for Roman Holiday all the time. (And I mean, all the time. I seriously can't get enough of it.) The colour is so pretty, feminine, and just a little bit bold. I really like that the colour makes a statement without being too over the top.
Since I am loving this set so much, I thought I would do a makeup look based around Roman Holiday. Here is how it turned out:
So, there you have it: my thoughts on the NARS Limited Edition Guy Bourdin Fling Holiday Set. I am absolutely loving these new lip products in my makeup collection. Thank goodness for NARS!
What do you think about this set? Which lipstick shade is your favourite?
