|NARS Digital World Lip Pencil Coffret|
So what did you get over the holidays? The NARS Digital World Lip Pencil Coffret was probably one of my favorite things from the previous holiday season. For $49, you get 5 lip pencils in various finishes. The NARS lip pencils do cost a bit when bought individually but they are nice. To get to try a variety of shades for roughly $10 each, it's worth it. I can't say each color was a win for me but there was enough variety in the coffret to mix shades in case there was one or two that I just didn't love. And that truly was the case.

Cruella and Descanso were my two favorite shades. Cruella didn't need to be mixed with other shades. It's a beautiful matte red. A little high maintenance, but what red isn't. Descanso feeds my need for a neutral. Yu, intensely pink, also needed no alterations, in my opinion. But you have to love a fuschia lip to go with it. The last two that I haven't mentioned, Torres del Paine and Iberico, I don't think I could wear alone. Iberico is orange and I don't do orange. Torres del Paine is coral but a little too fake peach coral to wear by itself, I think. I topped it with a neutral brown MUFE lipstick to get a shade I much prefer. I did the same to Iberico, to tone down the orangeness and it worked.

All in all, a pretty good set at an acceptable price. It is still available to purchase too.
