You may/may not remember me harping on about a NARS bronzing trio over the summer – it came in an identical zip-up compact just like the one above. What an amazing idea! A zip-up compact! I honestly do not know why more people aren’t making them – there’s no chance of them flipping open and ruining the inside of your handbag and they look ever so chic. It’s modern but the way that modern should be done; practical yet covetable.
Inside there are four gorgeous lip shades and two ‘multiples’ (if you’re not familiar with NARS’ multiples, they’re a multi-purpose creamy-textured tint that can be used on lips and cheeks as well as for highlighting, depending on the particular shade). I cannot wait to have a play about with this one – I know that it doesn’t look particularly exciting, but who uses all of those wacky greens and bright purples anyway?! I’d much rather have a selection of shades that I’ll actually wear.
Don’t you think that this would make the most excellent stocking filler? Hear that men?! Just a hint…
