Ladies, I have done it! I have finally found lipstick colours that work. Reds, plums, nudes (I have been looking for these for-ever!), even fuschia!!!!! Where did I find these delectable delights? Why NARS, of course. I am loving NARS lipsticks. Let me describe the dizziness that was caused by so much choice. I tried most of the colours available at the Bay and more than half of them worked for my skin tone. Now ladies, how often does that happen? I haven't even had that luck with MAC! I tried on a colour (Dolce Vita) that the salesgirl said that she only wears--she is blond and blue-eyed--and it worked for me. Talk about versatile.

I also revelled in the moisture-locking formula. I must have tried about 15 lipsticks and my lips were not left raw and scaly because of the addition of Vitamin E to the formulation. This lasted a few hours later when, after I had awoken from a nap, I felt my lips and they were still moistened. Gotta love that.

Here are the colours that I can't get enough of:

Afghan Red (fab red)

Russian Doll (I almost bought this one)

Mindgame (a great nude)

Shanghai Express (another beautiful red)


Porte Vecchio (deep, sultry plum)

Funny Face (think Rihanna-like fuschia)

Tutti Frutti (pearly nude)

Hindu (sheer plum)

Spanish Red

Corinthe (sheer almond)

Damage (muted grape)


Dolce Vita

I am sorry that these reproductions do not reflect the brilliance of colour and the smoothness of texture that infused my lips. I had almost given up on finding a good lipstick; I had reserved myself to a life of glosses. NARS changed that.


The Dolce Vita is pretty. I tend to like the lighter colors on my lips. xx

Yeah they are. In my opinion NARS blushes are unparallelled. Have you tried their shadows? They are rich in colour.
