NARS Guy Bourdin Promiscuous Lip Pencil Set

My love affair with NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl has been documented in the past, so when a set of mini's was released with the Guy Bourdin Collection, I knew this was the perfect way to get my hands on a selection of colours. I believe this set is sold out now, however, all of the colours are from the permanent range so you can easily get your hands on them individually all year round. 







This set comes in a beautiful cosmetic pouch adorned with some glossy blue lips. I would have bought the pouch alone, it is gorgeous. There are four Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in the colours Sex Machine, Never Say Never, Dolce Vita and Cruella, and a Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in New Lover.

The Velvet Matte Lip Pencils have a dry-ish matte texture. The dryness isn't uncomfortable on my lips, and it's not moisturizing in any way, shape or form. My love for the formulation has only grown with the addition of this kit to my collection. These pencils look like velvet on the lips and the wear time is phenomenal. These lip pencils will still be lingering even after a long night of drinking and the greasy burger at 3am.

The Velvet Gloss Pencil's texture is... interesting. It kind of feels like a thick balm. I don't know if it's the colour or the formula, but I'm not a huge fan of this one. Can't put my finger on why.


Sex Machine - Nude Mauve


Never Say Never - Rose Purple


Dolce Vita - Terracotta Nude


Cruella - Deep Scarlet


New Lover - Pink with Peachy Gold Shimmer


Sex Machine, Never Say Never, Dolce Vita, Cruella and New Lover

Overall, I loved this set! My favourites are Sex Machine and Dolce Vita.

My favourite place to buy NARS online is HQHair - free shipping and cheap prices for Australians!

Do you like prefer matte or glossy lip colours?

  1. The matte ones look a lot nicer, the glossy doesn't look like anything special. I seriously need to get my hands on some of these though, after your original review I've been lusting hard!

  2. The colours are gorgeous on you...but I do find the matte pencils a bit drying on my lips (I do have chronically dry lips though)!

  10. I really like the red on you! Never tried this formula - but I think the Satin formula is phenomenal. I had a terrible experience with HQ Hair that put me off ordering from them ever again - but their prices are always tempting (especially when they have their sales...).
