Do I Have Mug Tattooed Across My Forehead Nars?

Hey Ladies,

So I was having a browse at the Nars Holiday collections & cooing over the beauty & lusting after them all & I came across the super limited edition Bento Box & so off I clicked.


"A limited edition set of two Kabuki cups that were hand-poured with a new exclusive-to-NARS lipstick formula in highly pigmented shades containing Vitamin E. Housed in a handmade bento box, the set also comes with a Kabuki lip brush, designed for precise application by dipping the brush into the cup and blending until desired coverage is achieved."

So this set basically consists of 2 lip colours & a brush for ... £95! I'm being serious as well. Did no one notify Nars of the recession & the idea of being cheeky.

I think this price tag takes the piss, just because you slap the word limited edition on something doesn't mean you can hike the price up, seriously they must think we have no brains to work out that this isn't the best value item, or even bloody practical I mean are you gonna be carrying round this in your handbag for £95? I certainly wouldn't, I'd be storing it on a bejeweled cushion where no one can touch it.


Buck up Nars, does anyone else agree with me on this? The colours are probably very dupable within Nars itself let alone a cheaper brand like Mac. If you're stupid enough to want it fill your boots by all means, they are very limited edition & you can still get it off the Nars site & counters!!

  2. £95? Jesus shitting christ, that really is taking the piss. I've never used nars before as the brand doesn't appeal to me at all but I'll be steering even clearer now. Cheeky bastards! Anyone who buys that has clearly got more money than sense.

  3. Totally agree, some of their gift sets are way too expensive too as they give tiny half size versions! xo

  4. I saw it at the press day, they look nice, I'd say they only look around £20-30 in value though, the actual RRP is completely ridiculous! Anyone who has £95 to spend on that needs to lendme a fiver ;P
