  1. I wonder which plays a bigger part in its pricing… The fact that it’s limited edition/quantities, or the fact that it’s NARS. Hm.. will you be getting one, Phyllis? :]

  2. Sounds great and the colours looks fab, but can you imagine carrying the entire thing in your purse? These are purely for collectors, I think… Not very portable for personal or professional use.

  3. I went to the Nars counter today and it’s selling for HKD 1250 but needs to be ordered in advance. Also, Francois Nars is coming to Hong Kong in November and he will sign it if you buy it. I’m kind of tempted now but the sensible side of me knows I will never use it and it will most likely collect dust on my shelf :/
