2015 Sephora Birthday Gift: NARS (VIB ROUGE)

Each year I look forward to picking up my Sephora "birthday gift" which generally includes some form of mini makeup products. The past couple years I have been super disappointed in the selections - don't get my started on the hideous shade of MUFE Lipstick that was in last year's set (I know - total diva right now, but seriously.)

This year I was super excited to see that the birthday gift was from NARS! The VIB ROUGE birthday set includes a mini Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in "Cruella", mini Satin Lip Pencil in "Rikugien" and mini Larger than Life Eye Liner in "Via Veneto". 

-If you are at VIB status, the set will not include the liner.
I already own "Rikugien" Satin Lip Pencil and "Via Veneto" Liner. I'm not too crazy about their liners - I never really jumped on the wagon with those but I like the shade "Rikugien"! It's a soft mauve pink that's wearable for every day.

"Cruella" Matte Lip Pencil is new to me and I am super excited to wear it. It's more of a blue based red with intense color pay off.

What do you guys think about the NARS/Sephora Birthday gift this year? I'm loving it!


  1. Thank you for posting swatches of these lip pencils. I can't wait to be able to get my birthday gift! I actually loved the MUFE lipstick that was including in last years birthday gift, it's the perfect everyday lip color. I've actually never heard of anyone who did not like that lipstick, why didn't you like it? I was not a huge fan of the mascara, it wasn't terrible but its not my favorite.

  2. The NARS lip pencils are my all time favourite, they're amazing! Cruella is an amazing red shade, but I've been wanting to try Rikugien for ages now, cannot wait for September to roll around so I can get my hands on it - haha! x
