Can you believe it’s the holiday season? I feel like I’m still settling down from Halloween and how awesome my Miss Piggy costume was… and now it’s time to buy Christmas presents? And then a new year? That’s crazy talk!
Well, to help ease my nerves I went out holiday make-up shopping. It’s very therapeutic this time of year. I snagged the NARS Joyous Red lipstick from Sephora about a month ago, and I’ve been raving about it ever since.
Check out my swatches!
Ever since I got this lipstick I’ve been wearing it every chance I get. I’ve even been picking out outfits for work that will coordinate with it, I love it that much!
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m a red-lipstick-kind-of-gal. However, the great thing about this particular product is that it’s a very wearable red. I don’t feel like a street-walker when I wear it around the office. It doesn’t look like a red lipstick that you would point out and say, “hey, that girl is wearing red lipstick before noon.” It’s a deep, muted, amber red with a semi-matte finish.
NARS Joyous Red lipstick is part of their holiday 2011 collection and it is limited edition. I managed to snag one up at Sephora about a month ago, but I just noticed ontheir website that it’s sold out! Yikes!
I urge you to try this lipstick, even if you aren’t a red-lipstick-kind-of-gal. Just take a small step out of your comfort zone and you may find something gorgeous
NARS Joyous Red lipstick is available on their website and Sephora. **Update, here is the link to Joyous Red on Amazon, no longer available in stores.**
Hap-hap-happy holiday everyone!
