I think that that the Kudoki Kabuki set does have more wearable colors compared to the Bento set from last year. The quality of the lip colors were similar~very pigmented with a soft creamy feel. They are not the most moisturizing and since my lips tend to be a bit dry, I do like to prep with a balm before applying these colors. The shades in the Kudoki Kabuki set do seem to have a touch of shimmer to them when you look at the bowls but the shimmer does not show up when swatched. The Kudoki Kabuki set is currently available at online at Nordstrom.
Oh, that's super cute. I really want something from the new NARS collection.
I remember the bento from last year. This set is extremely wow! :) Gorgeous!
Very pretty! I think that most of the colours are too bright for me, though. Thanks for the pics!
This is actually my first time seeing NARS lip product like that!Thank you for sharing and the colors look pigmented.
Well these look kind of weird but interesting...
I think I'd rather make these myself with cheap lippies and bowls from the Chinese restaurant supplier XD They do look so nice in the packaging, though! Definitely a collector's item.
I love all the shades and the presentation is gorgeous! But why so expensive NARS?!
oh this looks super good.! (: the colours are beautiful!
wow, it looks really pretty and awesome!!! :)
but i'm still thinking whether i have to buy it cuz i already have a bento and schiap, carthago, cruising and dragon girl.
besides, i don't use red and nude lippies a lot, so that's why i'm still agonizing.:(
(i'm a pinky lippy-maniac btw.lol)
btw, is Botan similar to funny face or carthage?
and how about ougi? what's the difference between dragon girl and ougi?
is takebue similar to cruising? is it a pink nude color?
it looks like pretty redish nude when i just saw your pic.;)
@Jennifer Sorry I didn't reply back sooner. I don't have Funny Face or Carthage but I think Botan is a deeper pink and not quite as bright as Carthage, as well as not as matte.
I could not find my Crusing lipstick but from what I can remember, I think that Takebue is more pigmented and a bit more on the brown side than Crusing.
Hope that helps!
These are just too adorable! I don't think I could even bring myself to touch them!
And like Vicky, I agree...NARS charges an awful lot for them. They are beautiful though! And the swatches are lovely! This set does look a lot more wearable!
I wish I could get this! $125 feels a bit steep though .. how's the brush?
@cynthia The brush is quite nice. I did my swatches with it. It lets you be very precise in applying lip colors but isn't too stiff.
