NARS Audacious Lipstick in 'Lana'. I swatched this radiant orangey-red color a few weeks ago and promised myself I'd buy it only if I finally got my act in gear and started tracking every day in #weightwatchers. Two weeks later, I was down three pounds, just in time to pick up this (and a few other lovely goodies) in the Sephora Friends & Family sale. I guess if anything will get me motivated, it's a seriously sexy red lipstick.
NARS Audacious Lipstick in 'Grace'. The last of my 3 Audacious colors, this one's not quite red, not quite pink, not quite coral, but quite entirely fabulous. Each of the Audacious colors are named for a certain Hollywood starlet, and I'm assuming this color's namesake is Grace Kelly. Speaking of Grace Kelly, have you all heard of a podcast called You Must Remember This? I heard Sali Hughes mention it once and checked it out for the first time last week, and discovered it's the most incredible resource for Old Hollywood Gossip Junkies like myself. I listened to the stories on Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, and Grace Kelly, and I learned such delicious dirt about all three women that I didn't know before. Highly recommended listening, especially while wearing your vampiest red lipstick.
NARS Audacious Lipstick in 'Greta'. I know what you may be thinking: Exactly how many magenta lipsticks does this girl need? The answer: As many as it takes.
This is my lovely friend and colleague Erika wearing 'Greta' on a snowy day in NYC. Erika had been sent to NYC on a business trip where logistics went terribly awry due to Winter Storm Stella. To cheer her up, I sent @postmates to the Midtown Manhattan Sephora and had this little lippy delivered to her hotel room. As I had hoped, it was quite delightfully received. ✨🎁💄😁The only thing better than buying yourself a lovely, luxurious lipstick is gifting one to someone else and seeing her fabulous smile get even prettier when she wears it.👄😘
