Lip Service: NARS Mysterious Red

NARS-Fall-2013-Collection

Can you really have too many lipsticks?

I debate this question every time a ‘new and improved’ red lip color crosses my eyeline. Sometimes I resist the urge to adopt one… sometimes I don’t. In the case of NARS Mysterious Red (Autumn 2013), I lost the argument.

Like other Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, this one is incredibly easy to use, and can double as a lipliner (with careful application) and a lipstick.

Some people might find this formula a bit drying. If you’re not a fan of the ‘feeling’ of matte lipsticks, I suggest a light balm under this one, as it has the tendency to ‘pull’ a bit once its set. It goes on almost silicone smooth, but can feel a little dry as time wears on. Too much balm will change the ‘finish’ of this lip color though, from matte to satin. So use the least amount of balm possible to get the job done.

  6. It’s a neutral blue-based red. It will suit most cool and warm toned beauties.
