With summer approaching, it’s perfectly natural to love lips kissed with NARS Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatment ($25). The new line of six sheer little lovelies delivers natural-looking color (for that coveted “nude” lip look), subtle shine and sun protection just in time for summer.
NARS didn’t just add SPF 15 to these and call it a day. They also made them hydrating by adding wild mango butter, Acai oil and Vitamin E.
I’ve been wearing Aurore, a light pink nude, practically nonstop for a few days because I love how creamy it feels on my lips. I’d also like to thank NARS for not loading it up with any funky flavors or scents. When I see a product for the first time, I usually make assumptions about how it might taste or smell, ya know? Don’t some products just look like they’re destined to have a fragrance? In this case, the moment I saw Aurore, I thought, “Please don’t smell like strawberries.” And it doesn’t, so yay!
Now what about wear time? I’d estimate it lasts about 2-3 hours on my lips, which isn’t too shabby for something this sheer. If it weren’t for the price, I’d rub it all over myself and shout “NARS Pure Sheer!” from every rooftop. Still, $25 for these isn’t unusual for NARS. At least I know I’ll wear it down to the nub. If you like the “non-makeup” makeup look, check out all six shades at your local NARS counter, Sephora store and/or NarsCosmetics.com.
Marshall’s must love cat ladies
Was I just late to the Marshall’s party? The store near my house is like discount shoe heaven! Not only does it carry high-end brands like LAMB, Gucci and Prada, but I’ve also seen some budget stuff that’s pretty darn cute. Case in point: these leopard print sandals on sale for $15. They’re by a brand called Coconuts, and I think they feel more comfortable than $15 should.
El Hub took one look and dubbed them “cat lady shoes.”
What did ya wear on your feet today? Bonus points if you snagged it on sale.
