Nars Holiday 2018 Collection - Hot Tryst Cheek Palette, Little Fetishes Set, Defiant Lipgloss Coffret and Sheena Spiked Audacious Lipstick


Hi Beauties!

Nars holiday collection is all about attitude and will release your inner rebel.  Inspired by punk fashion of the 70s the coveted collection is covered in studded packaging and embossments.  The edgy collection features a graffiti Nars logo spray painted design on red boxes.  I’ve always been inspired by the fashion of the punk era and the metal and studs on the packaging had me in awe.  The collection consists of array of face and eye palettes, lipsticks and glosses.  Not to mention the iconic Laguna bronzer.   The thing I love most about Nars’ holiday collections is their gifting collection.  The various sets are perfect for gift giving or travel and are very reasonable priced.  Today I will be sharing a few pieces from this rebellious line along with swatches.


Hot Tryst Cheek Palette - $74 CAD and $59 USD

The studded graphic packaging on this palette is absolutely gorgeous. The geometric embossing on the inside is just as stunning. I almost didn’t want to touch it. The palette features six brand new limited edition shades. Four blush and two highlighting powders to highlight, contour and add a natural flush of colour to the cheeks. The formula is sheer to buildable and applies semi-opaque on my tan complexion. Each shade can be worn on its own or layered for a custom glow. The powders can be applied dry for a natural glow or wet for more depth. I really enjoy Nar’s blushes and this palette does not disappoint.

Little Fetishes Bronzer & Highlighter Set - $32 CAD and $24 USD

This mini duo contains the popular Laguna bronzer and newly released Fort De Frances highlighter. It is encased in a keepsake tin that would make a perfect stocking stuffer. The tin can also be reused to store small items or jewelry. There are other blush/bronzer/highlighter combos available in the Little Fetishes. The powders felt stiff and it was hard to get the pigmentation to show up on my arm for the photo. However, I didn’t have any issues with applying them. The highlighter is a beautiful champagne shade that gives a luminous sheen. It has a cream like texture and can give a wet glow look if applied with a wet brush. This set is great if you don’t want to splurge on the full size items.


Defiant Lipgloss Coffret - $39 USD

A trio of sultry glosses in the brands cult-favourite formula. All three glosses provide a luminous shine. The formula is comfortable to wear and non-sticky. It contains sea lavender to protect against aging and hydrate the lips. In other words, it makes your lips look supple and doesn’t settle in the lip lines. The doe-foot applicator helps the gloss to glide on smoothly with precision. Shades Big Trouble and Bite make great toppers as they have some shimmer. I didn’t think I would like the shade Noise but it’s lighter than it looks in the bottle and is really pretty.


  • BIG TROUBLE (Shimmering caramel)

  • BITE (Shimmering burnt copper)

  • NOISE (Crème bordeaux)

L-R: Big Trouble, Bite, Noise and Sheena Audacious Lipstick

Spiked Audacious Lipstick - $41 CAD and $34

There are three new limited edition shades of the Nars Audacious lipsticks. Designed with a studded silhouette inspired by the rebellious fashion of the 70s. Each shade is exclusive to a particular retailer. I have the Shade Sheena which is Burnt Coral Nude and is available at Nordstrom. The formula is on par with the Audacious formula that I love. It’s creamy and comfortable to wear. The pigmentation is rich and opaque delivered with one single layer.


There are over 30 limited edition pieces in the Nars Holiday 2018 collection. There’s definitely something for everyone with great gifting and individual items. My top picks are the Hot Tryst Palette, Sheena Audacious Lipstick, Defiant Lipgloss Coffret and the Fort De Frances highlighter.

The collection is available at major retailers including Sephora, Nordstrom and
