I made a bit of an impulse purchase today — I was cold, and bored, and I went into Sephora. This is never a good thing. I have a tiny fascination with Nars, and I have been looking for a deep, non-traditional color that is still fashionable.
Today, I found it.
This is a lipstick in pencil form, something that I have not used before. I like it, and I feel that it gives me more control during application. I would not recommend using this as a lip liner, because it is too thick and seems to lack the consistency.
As a lipstick, it is beautiful. More magenta than red, but deep and luscious in a grown up way. Purple, without being grapey. I love it.
I would not recommend wearing it with large amounts of dark shadow/liner, but with a bit of mascara, black liner and beige shadow it works out beautifully.
It is a tad pricey at $24, but I think that it will be worth it.
