NARS recently released a huge line of lipsticks with a brand new formulation that has been getting a lot of buzz in the beauty community. This range boasts 40 shades that promise long lasting, full impact color all while giving a luxurious feel to the lips. Sounds great, but for $32 each, are they worth it? I purchased 3 shades to test out so that I could let you know!

Loreal recently released 2 new types of lipstick, the LaLaque and the LeMatte. These new lip products are thinner than the average jumbo lip pencil and are pretty much the size of a crayon.

I love bright lipstick! Everytime I wear something bright on my lips, I feel happier and more pretty! I know, lame but true. Today’s look is showcasing Candy Yum Yum by MAC. This look can be done with any lip color, but I really wanted to show just how wearable CYY can be. Keep reading for more pictures and a video tutorial!
I finally found my perfect red lip! Red lipstick has always been very intimidating for me. Lately though, probably due to all the holiday makeup looks that I have seen, I really wanted to try a red lipstick. I looked all over the internet for swatches and pictures to try to get an idea of one that would suit me. Finally, I came across a video that mentioned NARS Dragon Girl and they described it as being very similar to MAC Ruby Woo, but not as drying. That intrigued me because Ruby Woo seems to be loved by women of all ages and skin colors. Unfortunately, I was not able to find many swatches for Dragon Girl on women of my color. That is one of the main reasons I wanted to share my views and provide some pictures for you!
