Eyeshadow Duo in ‘Dolmites’
|NARS velvet matte lip pencil in ‘Mandore’|
|NARS Audacious lipstick in ‘Fanny’|
There’s nothing better than new makeup, except for maybe new NARS makeup… last week I picked up a new things from the new Autumn collections, and one of the dreamy new Audacious lipsticks. My rationalisation was that I went into the Space NK very near an interview I went to last week… fingers crossed I get the job, because it’s so close to my favourite branch of Space NK – Soho.
The new Autumn pieces are looking pretty good! I picked up the Dolmites duo – one shade is a metallic plummy pink (looks particularly good over the Maybelline rose gold colour tattoo), and one shade is a rich bronze colour. Really easy colours to swipe all over lid and then smudge the darker shade in the crease. So easy. The formula is particularly good in this duo – top marks from me.
The velvet matte lip pencil in Mandore – the perfect oxblood red. I love the velvet matte lip pencils, because I find them so easy to scribble in, and they feel like a chunky crayon. Sensational formula as well. This red isn’t too orange, or too blue, but has a nice brown undertone that is different to some brighter reds that I own. I want to wear it with eyeliner and lashings of mascara.
Lastly, the Audacious lipstick. Oh. My. I need them all – luckily there are 40 (!) to choose from. Amazing, amazing formula. I chose the shade Fanny because a) the name made me laugh and b) the colour is a lovely plummy pink. I wore this all day, and it was so comfortable and not at all drying. I forgot I was even wearing it, but it also didn’t smudge all over my face. An amazing lipstick. Go now, my pretties, and buy one. You can thank me later.
