Two Lipsticks Obsessions // A Nars Love Story

Hey there,

My boyfriend always says that from the moment I began to buy lipsticks, I kept upgrading, going from Kiko, to Topshop, to Mac, to now Nars or even Estee Lauder. I know, I know... my credit card should be taken away from me... Don't get me wrong, I do not spend a hundred of euros in lipsticks in a month, I usually allow myself one lipstick every months or so. But yes, in a year my obsession has grown and has became unstoppable but we're not here to talk about that. Nope, today I decided to talk to you about two lipsticks that I'm terribly in love with. 


In the beginning of September, I came across Nars' lipsticks, they just caught my eyes while I was shopping at Sephora and I decided to give it a go, even though the price didn't really attract my credit card. The first one I got was the Anita, and it was pretty amazing, so I decided to keep going, so I got another one (Vera) and another one (Charlotte), and another one (Walkyrie) and another one (Luxembourg)... I won't talk to you about my whole lipstick collection here, instead, I'm going to talk to you about my two absolute favorites from Nars: Charlotte and Walkyrie. 

The Charlotte lipstick is from the Nars Audacious lipstick collection, which has around 40 amazing shades named after great lady. And since the formula is amazingly great, I'm thinking about writing another post just about those, but we'll see. This lipstick is the prettiest color I own, and it's funny because the first time I got a dark shade lipstick, it was from Topshop, and I was not so sure I could pull it off, but since that moment, I never let go of my dark shades lipsticks, and they are my go to for Fall time and Winter time. 


It's a creamy formula but it has a semi matte finished, it's so nice to apply and feels so great on the lips. The color is just so gorgeous and lasts a very long time, even when you eat or drink something, or kiss someone (let's be honest), it stays on, the color may not be as great as when you first applied it but you still have a little bit of shade of your lips. The packaging is very minimalist, as I love, plain black, with a little bit of Nars going on, but it's so subtle, you can't really see it. But what I truly adore about this packaging is that it's magnetic so it just closed perfectly by itself, which is always good when you put your lipstick in a makeup bag. 

I've got two other lipsticks with a similar dark burgundy almost purple shade, which you can't really tell due to the lights in the picture, the first one is the Wicked from Topshop, and the other one is the Diva from Mac, but the Charlotte is my favorite, even though the price really hurts. The formula is just brillant, it's so easy to apply and as I said it's a long lasting semi matte lipstick, definitely a killer. 


My other lipstick obsession is not truly a lipstick, it's still from Nars, but it's the Walkyrie lip pencil. It's a Velvet Matte lip pencil and the shade is a light brownish almost corail shade, which reminds me of the Velvet Teddy shade from Mac, but darker. It's described as a burnt coral red on the website, and the formula is quite creamy, with a truly matte finished but it's not dry on the lips. It's easy to apply since it's a pencil so you can really draw the lines of your lips, and it's long lasting. I love the color, even though I'm not very into nude shades but I really like this one, and I've worn it every single day this past week. 


It goes great with a bold eyes look or even with a simple, nude look. Basically, it works with everything, and I feel like it adds a very 90's vibes to a look. I love how it feels on my lips, and I love to apply it. The only bummer is that it's a pencil... and I'm not a big fan of pencils as lipsticks since you have to trim it, so it makes it smaller and smaller... But I really like this one, and I will 100% buy this again once I run out. 


That's it for today, I hope you liked this post! I'll see you soon, but until then, you can follow me on Blog Lovin so you'll know exactly when I post something here, and if you want to know what I'm up to on a daily basis you can follow me on Instagram.

Love,
