The Beauty Bible: Lipstick Of The Month… ‘Jane’ NARS Cosmetics
Hello gorgeous ones, happy Friday! We come this morning with our feature: Lipstick Of The Month, and it’s one that we know you Summer brides are going to love. Of course, this lippy’ is not just made for Brides, it’s the perfect holiday companion, one to swipe on before you head to work or, to pair perfectly with a gorgeous smokey eye. We have painstakingly sourced the glossiest magazines, clicked through pages of beauty blogs and flicked through runway images for a lip colour that not only is pretty, but too last until the early hours of the morning.
Hand’s up if you wan’t to know more?!
Introducing the rather gorgeous Audacious Lipstick – ‘Jane’
Duty free is a dangerous place, especially when it comes to lipstick shopping. On returning from sun, sea and sand, you need a post-holiday blues pick-me-up. When could be better to find oneself at the beauty counters whilst bored, burnt and with some leftover foreign money in your purse. This to us seems like the perfect time to do your pre-wedding lipstick shop. After all, who can resist slightly discounted make-up?
We have fallen one hundred percent in love with NARS‘ new line of lipsticks. After fluttering back and forth between the mirror and their section at John Lewis, We’ve found a shade that you’ll probably stick to forever. “Jane” in our opinions is an an earthy salmon-rosy colour. NARS actually describes this colour as a true terracotta, peachy with a slight hint of orange, too. The pink/rose undertones add a touch of femininity which is lovely for that romantic look on your wedding day, without going full-blown pink.
Ultimately, this mean’s it’s a flattering colour for both paler and tanned completions. So, for any of you getting married in warmer climates, this could be just the hue for you.
You will also be glad to know that the pigmentation is rather something of dreams, too. You will only need a couple of swipes to get the full blown lustrous colour. This is great as it in no way looks cakey or creates dryness.
No one wants from a lip colour, especially on your wedding day.
Jane glides on the lips as a satin, then within an hour or so gradually turns more of a subtle matte with an oh-so creamy texture. It’s hard to describe the texture but whatever NARS are doing, they are doing it right. Of course, there is no feathering either.
This beauty will not budge through the many glasses of bubbly, food and kisses. It lasts a whopping 5-6 hours, meaning that a top up may not even be required.
The lipstick come’s in the superior gorgeous cult packaging… It’s sleek, stylish and iconic to NARS. This lippy actually has a magnetic closure on it, too. Meaning that this little beauty is travel friendly and super secure to pop in your handbag, wherever you may be going.
Apply Audacious Lipstick directly to the centre of the mouth blending outward for full, creamy coverage of high impact colour. For a more controlled application, apply using the NARS Precision Lip Brush #30. Finish with a hint of Lip Gloss on the centre of the lips to add dimension and create the illusion of fuller lips, if this is the look you aim to achieve.
For a more precise look we would always recommend using a lip pencil to go with a lipstick, too. Especially for your wedding day. Their Velvet Lip Liner would do just the trick to defines lips with precision pigment-rich colour depth that perfectly frames, fills and prevents feathering against all lip colours. The smooth creamy formula glides on comfortably, stays sharp and lasts even longer.
Costing £25.00, these lipsticks sit somewhere in the middle of the high-end cosmetic spectrum, being more expensive than the likes of MAC, but a few pound of the likes of YSL and Chanel.
