I love Autumn/Fall, it’s by far my favourite time of year. I love all the new smells and how the colours of leaves change and the crisp air you get in the early mornings.
Another thing (a big thing) i love is how companies come out with new lipstick colours that just suit Autumn/Fall so perfectly. One company I know I can always find the perfect Autumn/Fall lip colour with is NARS and today I want to share some of my favourite colours with you.
I’m currently having a bit of a love affair with these. Something that looks so strong and bold in the tube yet glides on as a translucent formula leaving a beautiful hint of colour and shine on the lips really gets me hooked (what’s not to love?).
As I say, the NARS Sheer Lipsticks really do glide on the lips, they are smooth and hydrating and you can really feel them nourishing your lips while wearing them. They feel so beautifully lightweight and sit so silkily on the lips without smudging or creasing into the lines.
Something I really love about these is how easy it is to build the lip colour up, with an extra swipe or two you can go from sheer to opaque in seconds.
As with most sheer lipstick these won’t be lasing 8 hours on your lips but I’m happy to report that they will go for a good 3 hours before you’ll need to re-apply (well, on me anyway) which is better than a lot of other brands.
Two colours I have and love are:
Autumn Leaves – described as a Shimmering warm brandy
Outsider – described as a Shimmering burnish coral
For the moment when you want more a statement lip, these will have you covered!
The NARS Semi Matte Lipsticks have the same Patented blend of conditioners and antioxidants hydrate, nourish and protect lips and the NARS Sheer Lipsticks do and again (even though matte) you can feel your lips being kept hydrated and nourished while wearing them.
I love to wear a matte lip and love it when the lipstick can look matte without making your lips look like they’ve been dried out in the cold weather (nothing looks good about chapped lips). I’m happy to say that these are spot on with giving the result.
The NARS Semi Matte Lipsticks apply really nicely, they go on smooth and create a stunning veil of colour onto the lips without settling into lines or smudging out over the lip line (even without lip liner).
These beauties have a really good staying power of around 6 hours but that’s the longest I’ve gone so far. Once applied they seem to set onto the lips and become pretty close to non-transferable (perfect for date night as they don’t leave a trace on a wine glass – I know, I tested it out!).
Two colours I have and love are:
Hot Voodoo – described as a Fiery molten copper
Morocco – described as a Warm cinnamon with a trace of pink
Last up we have the Bright, bold and perfectly matte. OMG these are AMAZING for us full on matte lip lovers.
The NARS Pure Matte Lipstick are so so SO very highly pigmented that it only takes 1 layer to see its full colour which may I say is an extremely even colour. As well as being super high payoff in the colour department they are also really long lasting. I have been wearing this today for the past 5 hours and it still looks like I’ve just applied it.
For totally matte lipsticks these just like the others, they glide on smoothly and feel really lightweight but I do like to use a lip scrub before applying as they can catch on dry lips a little more than the NARS Semi Matte Lipsticks which can be understood with such a matte lipstick.
The NARS Pure Matte Lipstick has got to be THE MOST moisturising and comfy of matte lips I have worn so far. Just like the NARS Semi Matte Lipsticks they don’t make your lips look or feel as if they’ve been dried out.
I have this is just the one colour at the moment:
Tonkin – described as a Cinnamon/ plum
As an extra little note, all of these fantabulous lipsticks come in a variety of colours and are ONLY £19.50 each!
What will you be wearing on your lips this Autumn/Fall?
