Weekend Wear: Lips

If you know me, you will know I have quite a bit of a make up buy addiction, but you will also know I don't tend to use alot of my collection. It's quite rare for me to buy something and rip the packaging open to use right away. I usually buy something for the long run and put it away for months before it ever get's any use. Now sometimes, just sometimes, I come across a product, that just has to used, right now, every day if I could, but for this new obsession, weekend obsessed and routine it has become.

NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square
I own a few of these little guys and this is the only one I've ever taken out of it's box, ha!
My random splurge purchase during the Sephora chicweek haul period. I said 
"No, don't go back into that store this week. You don't need anything." - This was after my first few visits...
I somehow ended up in the store, I ran across NARS, and left with this baby.

The shade is a red orange, the pigmentation is intense, the lasting power is decent, and the impact is high.
When I tried this on in the store I was wearing my brown framed glasses and it was a winning combination. I doubt I'd ever wear my specks with this but it's always nice for that book look I suppose.

It doesn't matter how you wear it or when you wear, sometimes you just gotta smack on some red lips and call it a beautiful day.

Fun Fact: This is my 500th post!
For those of you who have read and stayed with me all this time, let me say: THANK YOU!


  1. 500 posts! That's quite the accomplishment! Congratulations :) You're right, sometimes the day *does* call for red lips and then it is definitely a beautiful day. Red Square looks lovely and despite my already-too-large collection of reds, this one would fit in nicely!

  2. Hi J, I have not tried Red Square yet, but you can't go wrong with a NARS Red!

    Congratulations on 500!!!!!! :)

  3. That is a really pretty shade, I'm curious to see what other shades from the line you have now!
    Congratulations on 500 posts, keep 'em coming!

  4. Grats on your 500th post!! And the color looks lovely on you =)

  5. Wow 500 posts!! Congrats! :) This orange-red looks very good on you! Are these lip pencil drying?

  6. Congratulations on the big 5-0-0!

    I'm a huge fan. Keep up the great work!

  7. Beautiful, and yes I totally know how those "you dont need anything" visits go! It's okay though, look at that beautiful colour! ;)

  8. I think that colour really compliments your skin tone :) And I also love wearing reds for just a casual day.
    My latest addition has been Revlon Strawberry Suede, but maybe... I'll also pick NARS Dragon Girl this month (There's a tempting discount in the store which retails NARS in my city!).
    I've been trying to restrain myself from buying more red lipsticks, but it's been a long long time! hahaha

    Congratulations for those 500 posts! I don't usually leave a comment, but always read all your updates! <3
