Happy Fall, y’all!
Although here in sunny California, it’s definitely still feeling distinctly summery.
Well, it’s been FOREVER since last I blogged, and there’s no excuse – but if there were a good excuse, it would have to be the fact that I’m not-quite winding down one of the busiest wedding seasons ever AND in the panicked throes of obsessing about my own wedding (gulp). Can you blame me for going MIA? Well, maybe you can…
But fear not! Just because I’ve spent the last few months at the mercy of a mess of fabulous brides (seriously, it’s been a great season!) as well as my own neuroses, doesn’t mean I’ve neglected my main obligation as compulsive beauty buyer. It’d take more than an onslaught of work to slow down my shopping habits, gang.
And just in the last few weeks I’ve fallen in love with a handful of new lip products (I’m SO predictable) that I’d love to share with you – the first of which is the much anticipated NARS Audacious lipstick line.
It’s no secret that I’m a NARS junkie (#narsissist) already – if you were to peek in both my kit and my vanity, you’d find a slew of blushes and a shocking number of eyeshadow duos. They offer a huge array of colors and I find their pigment payoff to be consistent – pretty much across their whole product line. And to my delight, these new lipsticks are seriously amazing!
Each shade bears a different woman’s name (spoiler alert: there’s a Catherine and I had to have it!), a crazy amount of single swipe color, and a long wearing, almost gel-ish finish that even stands up respectably to eating and drinking. They are seriously SO good. Since my namesake is described as a “sunny guava” and not a shade I’d usually gravitate toward (although it has totally grown on me), I ran back and had to pick up Charlotte as well. I’ve got a whole shopping cart ready to go full of girls like Ingrid, Audrey, Fanny, and Greta.
The packaging is lovely, too. These sleek, chic angled cases are matte, black, and magnetic. They feel like something special even before you open the tube.
