I do love NARS. Its up there with one of my favourite make up brands. Their Sheer Glow foundation is my all time favourite out of any foundation i've tried, so much so i don't feel the need to try another one ever again, extreme? Maybe.
The holiday gift sets that NARS bring out around the festive season are in my opinion out of this world and beat MAC and any other make up brand offerings. I scoped out the Space NK website as they sometimes have NARS christmas gifts that are exclusive to them and literally could not take my eyes off the Virtual Domination Cheek Palette. I mulled this over and ummed and arred about it for a fair few days before finally purchasing and boy am i so glad i did! In the past i've missed out on stunning NARS cheek palettes that i knew this time i just couldn't pass this one up! For £45, this palette contains 3 blush shades in Final Cut, Deep Throat and Sex Fantasy, Laguna Bronzing Powder and also Miss Liberty Highlighting blush. The best thing being that i don't own any of these shades, score! The combined retail of this palette is £117 so quite a bargain if i do say so myself, lets just call it an early Christmas present to me from me. I love the packaging, its a far cry from the rubbery black packaging that NARS use for their blushes and bronzers and in a white, plastic compact which i must admit i definitely prefer. You get 4.5g of product of each of the blushes and 10g of the bronzer, which correct me if i'm wrong i'm sure is full size.
Onto the next NARS purchase and this is the set that out of the two i would have left behind, which would have been the worst mistake ever! To me the Digital World Pencil Set had my name written all over it. The colours all looked wearable, i knew that i would not let any of the shades go to waste and for £32 for 5 travel size pencils, I knew that it was quite the bargain. I must admit, the colours don't last too long and they do fade quite easily so a top up is required, but they feel soft and creamy on the lips, have a good colour pay off and are just quite dreamy. The shades included are Torres Del Paine, Descanso and Yu which are all satin lip pencils and also Iberico and Cruella which are velvet matte pencils. The only one i am yet to try is the dark pink, the others are beautiful.
If i had to choose a favourite? I'm not sure i could! They are both as equally stunning and great value for money. I'm sure it depends on if you are a cheek or lip girl. Me personally? both!
