Nars Cosmetics are a brand that I had never tried as I found them a bit too expensive and was more than happy sticking with my Urban Decay and Bare Minerals favourites. That was until I got an email from my head office stating that as a special offer all staff members would receive a discount on Nars, so of course I just had to place an order.
I had heard a lot of good things about their foundation but as I was ordering online and don’t have a store nearby to check my colour I thought it was best to steer clear and go with my top make up love; lipstick. There is an amazing range of colours in the Nars range and if you are having trouble finding a particular colour from your usual brand I would definitely recommend them for their diversity. I ended up settling on two lipsticks, in a cool pink and a crimson red, and a lip pencil in a vivid pink.
Anyone who has been on a night out with me knows that I absolutely adore a red lip and smoky eye combo so my favourite of the three was definitely Deadly Catch. Both of the lipsticks are both smooth and creamy, and don’t dry out your lips, and I’d say have a wear time of around 4-5 hours before you need to top up. The Audacious lipsticks come in a range of 40 colours, and the Hardwired Lipsticks are actually from the Holiday 2014 Collection and are stated as limited edition so I don’t know how long they will be around for.
I personally use the Lip Pencil as an all over lip stain as it has real staying power and as a general preference I don’t use a lip pencil for it’s official purpose. It’s a perfect shade coming into the Spring/Summer season as it’s so bright and fun. Although I’m a big red lip fan for a night out I do love a bright pink lipstick with just a splash of mascara for a day time look in Spring and Summer, against a backdrop of glorious sunshine… A girl can dream can’t she. Bring on Summer, or at least roll on June when I go on holiday and can really get some use out of the pinks.
