Nars Satin Lipstick & Nars Precision Lip Liner

I don’t really go for bold lip colours, I am always worried they don’t suit me.  I was lucky enough to try these lip products out at the Glamour Beauty Festival, without having to fork out and find out I didn’t like them.

First up:

Nars Precision Lip Liner – Rouge Marocain

What is it?

“Daring definition. Unstoppable colour. Relentless glide. Put it all on the line with new Precision Lip Liner. Moisturising formula saturates with budge-resistant colour. Highly pigmented colour glides on smoothly. Wooden, sharpenable pencil provides laser-focus precision and a clean, well-defined application”

How to use it?

I have to admit with brighter colours, I am not the best at getting lip liner to look flawless and draw the perfect shape.  I found this surprisingly easy, the pencil didn’t drag on my lips, which made it a lot easier to correct any mistakes and follow my lip line. I made sure my lips were flake free and moisturised before applying.

Initial Thoughts

A great colour, easy to use and genuinely one of the best lip liners I own. I tend to colour in my lips as well as line them to make the colour of the lipstick last longer.

PROS:

  1. Smooth application
  2. Great colour and range of colours available

CONS:

  1. Very expensive

Next up:

Nars Satin Lipstick – Afghan Red

What is it?

A lustrous, long-wearing lipstick infused with conditioners to provide smooth ultra comfortable wear and sumptuously, silky colour with a patented blend of conditioners and antioxidants hydrate, nourish and protect lips

How to use it?

Think it is pretty self explanatory, however with bright colours I do tend to add a little concealer around my lips after application just to make the lines look cleaner. This lipstick is great alone or over other shades.

Initial Thoughts

I genuinely love the colour, which is unusual for someone who is addicted to nude lipsticks! Its a smooth application, it didn’t dry my lips out, like a lot of lipsticks out there. It was long wearing when paired with the lip liner (even survived burger & chips). The shade range available for this lipstick is great too, so if Afghan red is a bit much, there are plenty of others to choose from.

PROS:

  1. Easy to apply
  2. Great range of shades available
  3. Perfect alone or with liner/other lipsticks
  4. Long wearing without drying out the lips

CONS:

  1. Again an expensive lipstick (I actually picked these up from Fabled.com where you can get 15% off your first order…bonus!)
