I love all shades of lipstick and believe that you should wear whatever makes you feel good whenever you want to wear it, so seasonal lip trends have always passed me by…until now! My new favourite lip shade, a deep dark purple, happens to be ‘on trend’ and perfect for the festive party season! Of course I pretended this was no accident as I hot-footed it down to my local town centre to get my hands on this season’s must-have shade!
After a bit of a trawl I decided on a NARS Audacious lipstick, because I do love them so! I have six other shades from this collection and have been really really happy with their opaque one-swipe coverage that lasts and lasts. There were several dark lip shades to choose from but I opted for the cool-toned deep aubergine shade ‘Liv’. These lipsticks don’t really need a lip liner underneath them but I am a creature of habit, albeit a fairly new one. Liv is such a stunning colour to look at. The other NARS Audacious lipstick shades I have, have all genuinely been one-swipe coverage. However his one does take a few swipes to get an even finish. The application is a teensy bit patchy but trust me, the bit of extra effort is worth it for the colour payoff and the lasting power…once it’s on, it’s on! The only thing that starts to break it down when it’s on your lips is oily food. Avoid this and it could last all evening!
The Sleek Eau La La lipliner in ‘Venom’ that I’ve been using is probably slightly too pink to really match this lipstick…but it was all I had! As long as you don’t overdraw your lips you can’t tell and it doesn’t change the colour of the lipstick. The Sleek lip liners are inexpensive, apply really easily and are very pigmented. There is a darker shade available which I think will match this lipstick better that is on my ‘to buy’ list.
Let me know what lip shades you are rockin’ this season!
