The Autumn Lip

As I have darker skin, I always love it when Autumn rolls around. In the summer time I find it so difficult to find a light pinky shade that doesn't make me look a little drag queen-y- it's not a good look. So as the days get colder and I feel myself getting (a little!) paler, I get very excited at the thought of reaching for my dark lip colours.

There's something so glamourous and sexy about a dark, bold lip. It makes your teeth look whiter and draws attention to your mouth which I think (if you've got good teeth!) it's such a gorgeous body part. Step in, Nars. What did we ever do without Nars? The purveyor of creamy, soft, long lasting colour.

I picked up this shade last month in Vegas. It's the Satin Lip Pencil in the shade, Palais Royal. It's bold and bright and surprisingly easy to wear. At £18 it's hardly a bargain but you get what you pay for. It practically melts as you apply it and it has great staying power. It's quite moisturizing too so you don't get that dry, cracked colour effect. All in all I have to say, bravo Nars!


  1. Love NARS. Love that you are blogging more now. LOVE YOU!

  2. I love the Nars lip pencils, they are really good. I was looking for a new colour and this is looks right up my street.
