As you know, I've been experimenting with lipsticks a lot more and loving it. My go-to brand right now is NARS
because I love the texture of their lipsticks and they stay on all day with barely any help. For fall, I wanted to branch out a little bit and try something new so I got this dark purple, almost black, lipstick. It is definitely more aggressive then what I normally wear, but it is perfect for transitioning clothes. This outfit for example, I wore this exact outfit in August and it felt very summery and appropriate. However, with the dark lipstick, it is immediately a fall outfit. The dark purple complimented the navy of my blazer and my green necklace so well and makes the white perfectly appropriate for a warm October day.
Other than making my outfit the perfect transition piece, this lipstick
is also fabulous. It did not fade at all throughout the day. and went on very smoothly. My biggest problem with dark, matte lipsticks is that they typically dry out my lips and mouth throughout the day and you end up with a dark line around your lips and no color in the middle. This lipstick has a surprisingly amount of moisture so my lips didn't dry out at all. Plus the color didn't move whether I was eating or drinking. So far, my experience with NARS has been so amazing product wise and customer service wise. I would really highly recommend them and I'd love to hear what y'all think about them. Until next time, XO
