Nars understands how to make a damn great lip color. That’s not some type of brand-new discovery or anything, however I’m simply here to state that if you believed it the very first time you got your makeup done at an outlet store beauty counter as a teenager, it still is true. For the brand name’s 25 th anniversary, it relaunched its whole lipstick line with 70 tones (consisting of the 12 initial ones it debuted with years ago) and an upgraded formula.

After overcoming my preliminary “if it ain’t broke” confusion, I in fact attempted the brand-new formula, and can confirm that it’s genuinely excellent. The satin-finish variation goes on efficiently and produces a cushiony, soft swath of pigment that has remarkable remaining power, however does not feel dry at all. My go-to shade for the minute– and for the foreseeable future, as I am positive it’s the perfect fall shade– is Dressed to Kill, a brick red flecked with gold shimmer.

It’s an unforeseen and remarkably flexible shade, and I’ve required to using it anytime I desire a little color and drama. I might likewise see using it to dress up my try to find among the wedding events I’ll be going to in the fall, and I like that the satin-finish formula sits tight (on lips, not teeth!) for hours on end without producing that dry, shriveled impact some lower lip colors might trigger.
