Blogmas #16: NARS Digital World Set Review

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

At the end of November, I finally found myself in a Space NK store, after what felt like an age of wanting to, with the view to pick up a NARS Lip Pencil. I ended up walking out with one of their Christmas offerings, the Digital World Set, which contains five - maybe a couple more than originally thought but mission accomplished, right?!

I've now owned these glorious pencils for a few weeks now and have nothing but good to say about them! The set came with 'Torres Del Paine', 'Descanso' and 'Yu' (all with a Satin finish), as well as, 'Iberico' and 'Cruella' (Velvet Matte finish). As you can see from the photos, there is a broad spectrum of colours in the set, which I personally relished as it gives me the opportunity to try out a few shades from the lip pencil range. I especially like wearing 'Cruella' (as you can see here), a beautiful deep red.

Swatches L-R: 'Torres Del Paine', 'Decanso', 'Yu', 'Iberico' and 'Cruella'

I personally prefer the Velvet Matte finishes as I find they're so long-lasting! I also love a good ol' bold lip! But the Satin finishes are just as nice and make my lips feel so lovely when wearing, with their smooth and shiny formula. I particularly like 'Descanso', a delicate peachy nude that's my go-to for a natural or soft look.

Also, how utterly gorgeous is the packaging?! Such a wintery looking box that houses the pencils and the product themselves are sleek, simple and could be popped in to a handbag with no worries.

Another thing I simply have to mention is the incredible value for money. This set includes 5 lip pencils which individually cost £18 each and yet, this set costs only £32. It's an absolute bargain and brilliant for anyone who's wanting to try out the product or someone who is new to wearing bolder colours.

This set would be the perfect gift for someone else or, like I did, as a treat for yourself. 

Have you tried the NARS Digital World Set and if so, what did you think? Do you have any shades of NARS Lip Pencils you would suggest trying next?
