Baiser de Feu features three of NARS' prettiest plum lip colours, with a variety of matte, sheer, and glossy formulas. You can really mix and match to customize the depth and finish of the look!
To start, the kit comes in a matte, black box that depicts its iconic lipstick tubes on the front:
And the back features the details and ingredients of each of the goodies inside and a little picture of them on the bottom right:
On the top is a cheeky little quote from Francois Nars himself, expressing just how alluring a vampy lip can be!
Peeking in the box, you can see the tops of the three lip products, and a little pouch for the included tote bag. Got to love the consistency of the sleek, matte black packaging!
As for the products themselves (the best part, of course!), Baiser de Feu includes a gloss, Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in Como, a rich, matte lip pencil, Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned, and a glaze-finish lip colour, Sheer Lipstick in Damage.
Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in Como is a semi-sheer, shiny berry colour with subtle gold shimmer. It feels rich on the lips without being sticky or greasy. Looks great on its own or over top of the other two colours in the kit!
Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Damned is a bold, cool-toned burgundy scarlet that is perfect for a matte statement lip. Pair it with a pinch of blush and a couple swipes of mascara and you're good to go!
Sheer Lipstick in Damage is a subtle raspberry plum shade. It looks quite deep in the tube, but the beauty is in its sheerness. It leaves a lovely wash on the lips, which is perfect for work or those who want to try a plummy shade without committing to a full-on formula.

As you can see from the swatches, the shades work incredibly well together, so you can really customize your look depending on how saturated, glossy, sheer, or matte you want your lips to be!
Plus, the kit comes with a chic little black tote bag, with the brand's logo on the front (see below) and a cheeky quote on the back (see the first pic, above):
Here's a photo of me wearing Damage. It's sheer, plummy goodness!

And with a touch of Como on top, it adds a glossy dimension that kicks things up a bit:

I haven't included a shot of me wearing Damned, but I'm planning a Look of the Day with it soon, so stay tuned!
I really couldn't be happier with Baiser de Feu- it's a fool-proof set to create the perfect Fall lip! The variety of textures and finishes is so handy and I can see the shades, though bold, as being pretty universally flattering. So if you're a lover of plummy, burgundy lips, you definitely have to check this out!
Have you tried any of the shades in the Baiser de Feu kit? What are some of your favourite Fall lip colours?
