NARS I Will Survive Kit

After having purchased and fallen in love with the NARS Danmari Palette (blogpost forthcoming), I decided to try my hand at a few other products.  I found the I Will Survive set through beauty.com and they included a free deluxe sample (2g) of NARS Soft Touch Eye Shadow Pencil in Aigle Noir.

The set includes three products: (1) Deep Throat Blush (4.8g); (2) Sex Machine Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (2.4g); and (3) Deep Throat Lip Gloss (7g), for a retail price of $55.

Deep Throat is a bit deeper than NARS' best-selling blush in Orgasm.  It has just the slightest hint of shimmer and is a nice coral shade.

Sex Machine Velvet Matte Lip Pencil is mauve/pink neutral shade.  I love the texture of the pencil.  Kind of wish that the set included a sharpener.

Deep Throat Lip Gloss has a nice smooth finish and brightens up the lip pencil with a nice peach/gold tone.

Here are some swatches:

Top to Bottom: Deep Throat Blush, Sex Machine Lip Pencil, Deep Throat Lip Gloss

The Soft Touch Shadow Pencil has a nice soft texture and I describe the shade as a nice black velvet shade with a hint of gold shimmer to it.  I think it's a great shade for smokey eyes and the gold shimmer makes it ideal for holiday looks.  A nice little freebie, I'd say.

Here's a swatch of the pencil:

My overall rating: Booyah! 

Have you tried any of these products?  What are your thoughts on these or other shades?


  1. I haven't tried these shades, but think they're gorgeous on your skin. :))
