Big Hair = a Bold Red Lipstick

It was a big hair day the other day, and what goes better with big hair than a bold red. Yes? This one is from NARS, and it’s a Velvet Matte Pencil. The colour is Mysterious Red, and it is one of my new faves this Fall.

I used to be afraid of matte colours because I had bad memories of the 1990s matte formulations. The formulas then were drying and not at all attractive or comfortable to wear. The formulas today, including this version from NARS, are amazing. They are comfortable to wear and look stunning on.  I love the ease of application of the pencils too.

Are you sporting bold reds this fall…or big hair for that matter?

    Wow! You mean business, love the look! So true about the new formulations, I used to love a matte from Lancôme called Mocha which was a gorgeous deep brown red but it did a number on my lips. I haven’t tried NARS crayons but the l/s I’ve been wearing this summer (NARS) was just perfect & pretty matte but so comfortable to wear. :)

      I was all about Tolède! I kept comparing other colors to it and ended not buying any. It was just perfect! :)
