Finally after one million light years (translated to turtle-slow-over-three-weeks-in-transit), Dominique and Catherine arrived, desperately seeking for their mama’s interminable love and attention. Impatient mama welcomed both dehydrated babies with mixed emotions: glad that they are home but swearing in high notes never to order again direct from NARS website. Boy at this day and age, any big time company that utilizes Smart Post isn’t smart. And please, Hawaii is part of the United States, ever heard of USPS flat shipping rate? #endrant
Okay let’s focus on my new girls. I purchased both primarily because of their names, Catherine is moi albeit spelled differently, and Dominique, chic and mysterious. Color is out of the question because I like bold and unique lippies in case you don’t know yet.
Audacious Lipstick ($32, 0.14 oz/ 4.2 g) is a new collection in celebration of NARS’s 20th anniversary. Available in forty shades, it boasts of rich pigmentation, hydrating ingredients, and luxurious sensation.
Dominique, a Barneys and NARS exclusive, is spot-on lilac. Feeling adventurous and artistic? this shade is made for you.
Catherine is peachy coral. Tired of red or pink? it’s the perfect shade to rock at any given time.
Housed in magnetic tubes, these lipsticks feel creamy and ritzy. They are opaque in one pass with slight luminosity. They are moisturizing with decent five-hour wear time. I love both so much that I intend to add few more shades to my stash. But I’m on a lipstick no-purchase month….said the woman who cried wolf.
Have you purchased any of these girlies?
