What can I say about these lipsticks that hasn’t already been said? Not much, that’s for sure! But I had to throw my own praises in with the rest. These pricey (yikes $32!) lipsticks are one hundred and ten percent worth the money.
NARS has hit it out of the park with these lipsticks.
As you can see, I went with three very different shades. I don’t have the money (nor the time) to purchase and wear the full range of shades. I mulled over each and every color for several weeks to decide which shades I should get.
I knew I wanted a classic red so I set my sights on Marlene. It’s described as a brick red with a satin finish and a warm undertone. It leans slightly more towards the orange side of red. I liked the vintage-y vibe I was getting from it and I knew the warm undertone would work well with my pale, warm undertone skin.
Janet was the first shade I picked up! I wanted something bold that would be make me feel excited, and Janet is right up that alley. She’s a fuchsia with a pearl finish and cool undertones. I love wearing this shade with a neutral eye and basic black outfit. It really stands out.
Everyone needs a nude, everyday kinda shade, right? That’s where Anna fit right in. I wanted something I could wear on a regular basis at my day job and something that would match most looks. Anna is a pinky nude with a semi-matte finish and a neutral undertone. Simply gorgeous and probably my favorite of the trio.
