Apologies for being away from the blog for so long…I’m trying to get back into blogging again but my time is limited so we will see how it goes! Today I wanted to talk about one of my favorite Fall/Winter lipsticks. Of course you can wear this all year round but I usually wear it during the holidays. 🙂
Lipstick is usually the first thing I use to rev up the drama when fall & winter hits. I love the dark, rich colors that are featured during this season, my favorites are dark reds, plums and berry shades. One of the lipsticks I reach for often during this time is NARS Fanny. The name…is odd, especially for the Brits out there. On a side note, I dated a British guy once and he was horrified that Americans wore fanny packs. But aside from Fanny meaning something entirely different to the British, I find it a funny name for a lipstick!
Fanny is a gorgeous rich berry shade, it pulls towards the fuchsia on my fair skin tone which I absolutely love. I would say it’s a satin finish, its not incredibly shiny but its not matte either. The texture is creamy and its easy to apply from the bullet. I also like how NARS is etched into the bullet too, it’s a nice touch. The lipstick is housed in a matte black container that is magnetized to close back together completely. I love this feature, its functional so your lipstick doesn’t dry out but its also fun to play with lets be honest. Gadgety!
I will be wearing this shade tonight for a Christmas party, it also works great as a stain, which is what I will be wearing it as since we are eating dinner. I am going to wear a matte brown eyeshadow in the crease with winged out bronze liner, and maybe some glitter on top because… CHRISTMAS!
Thats all for now folks, I hope you are doing well!
