NARS – Short Circuit Lipstick

My love affair with NARS cosmetics is never ending. By the time that I had decided how much I wanted the Guy Bourdin palette it had sold out (always the way) so I decided to pick something else out of the collection.  The ‘cinematic’ lipstick range promises “intense colour saturation with a gorgeously glossy shine” and definitely delivers. Normally one to sway towards a matte lip, I have developed a new love for a glossy finish. It sits more like a balm and feels incredibly light when applied. It is described as a ‘fire coral’ which I would say is accurate but it also has a slightly orange undertone. When it comes to pigmentation you just can’t fault NARS which never disappoint with their colour pay offs. There’s something about red lipstick that makes me feel ready to take on the day. After all, a girl can never own too many lipsticks, can she?

What do you think of this colour? Would you wear it?

Lydia Rose,

    This lipstick is beautiful!
    I'm normally so weary of orange shades, as I'm pale and they can look so naff on me. This is lovely though, best get saving 😉

    You write a great blog btw!
