NARS Uninhibited Set: $52: A trio of intrigue and seduction – Dolce Vita Lipstick, Lip Gloss and limited edition Nail Polish presented in a sleek black lacquered box. I must admit, Dolce Vita is a perfect color for so many people. This would make an excellent gift, because these shades are so universal.

NARS Climax Set, $52: A fantasy of shocking pink in the legendary Schiap – featuring a Lipstick, limited edition Lip Gloss and Nail Polish housed in a matching pink, lacquered box. Is there a woman who doesn’t need Schiap? This entire set looks so confident, summer-ready, and beautiful.

Nars Domination Palette

NARS Domination blush palette, $49 A rush of blush – delivering insatiable glamour for cheeks, this exclusive palette features three signature Blush shades (Orgasm, Laguna and Mistinguette) and Devotee Highlighting Blush. I was fortunate enough to receive this item from NARS for review, and as usual the quality is absolutely stellar. This is a perfect palette for a sculpted cheek, with a touch of bronze, highlighter, and two beautiful blush shades. In sun:

Nars Domination Palette 4I think if I had to choose, I’d give the Dolce Vita set to my good friend (who is a bit conservative), Domination as a gift for my niece, and keep the Schiap for myself. What would you do?

  1. Love Dolce Vita….

  2. I’m so tempted by the Schiap set! I’ve also never tried Dolce Vita so may consider that as well. Do you know if these are the reformulated lip gloss formulas, Amy? Thanks!

    • I’m sorry, Carolyn, I didn’t get a sample of these and the literature doesn’t say. I’ll email my contact there and let me know if she has the information.

      • I was just at the Nordstrom pre-sale last night and the glosses are indeed the “new” formulation. I don’t think the older version is available anymore, much to my chagrin, as I loved the sticky texture! Amy, your second interior photo of the Domination palette is just spot-on and virtually actual size on my laptop. Just love your photography!

  3. I’m lusting after the trio gift boxes, partially because of its packaging. Lol.
    How does the domination palette compare to the one night stand cheek palette and the narsissist eyeshadow palette in terms of measurements? Are they the same size?

    • Hi Isabella–this Domination palette is not the same size–it’s more elongated (like a longer rectangle envelope shape) and smaller overall just by my eye-estimate. So shorter/smaller than the One Night Stand palette, which was the six-pan from Sephora Holiday, and less product (although less expensive, too).

  4. Must. Get. haha
