NARS 'Final Cut' Satin Lip Pencil & Blush

I believe that this collection is still available at Nordstrom's so it's okay for me to talk about it right? I ordered a couple products from the NARS 'Final Cut' collection which is being exclusively sold at Nordstrom (in the US - I think Selfridges in the UK?).

I got the blush in the shade 'Final Cut', which is actually a pretty difficult shade to explain. In some lights it looks peachy pink whereas in others it definitely appears to be more of an orangey coral shade. I think this is why in the top photo it looks pink and in the swatch it definitely looks more peachy/orange. Either way, I will say it looks like a peachy pink when it's on my face. It's almost comparable to NARS Deep Throat, although it has absolutely no shimmer and Deep Throat is rather shimmery.

The other thing I got was the NARS Satin Lip Pencil in 'Villa Lante', which I saw on The Beauty Milk and fell in love with. I usually go for a nude lip but 9/10 when I do fancy a bit of color I will go for a pink. I love the ease of application with this and the color payoff is excellent (as to be expected with NARS products). I also think the satin finish is really nice because it's not drying but it's also not shiny -- I like a glossy nude lip but a glossy bright lip is not really up my alley.

I actually wanted basically everything from this collection but I thought that would have been a little excessive...

  1. I love NARS blushes! The only one I own is deep throat however this looks gorgeous! The lip pencil looks like a really fun bright colour too :) Your life 'British born, Parisian bred girl living in New York' sounds absolutely perfect to me! You're so lucky! Rachel x

  2. Love those NARS lip sticks, that color looks awesome, too!

  3. Both of these came out differently swatched than I thought they would but they're still gorgeous! I think I prefer the shade of the lip pencil though as I really can't say no to a pink lip.
