I gotta give props to Francois for his ability to think outside the beauty box, this time with a twist on traditional summer lips.
Described as a sheer apple brandy, Coup De Coeur Lip Gloss ($24) reigns supreme as the lone NARS lipgloss for summer 2010.
Gosh, it takes me back… To the ’90s! And Buffy the Vampire Slayer, baby t’s, spaghetti strap dresses and those little black backpacks of days gone by.
On me I think it looks like a creamy reddish brown (maybe a little more fall than summer?) that lasts about three hours on the lips, and it shares the same smooth, non-sticky feel of other NARS glosses like Supervixen (LOVE! ).
Ya know, I like it … but I’m undecided on how I feel about about it for summer. It makes me think “responsible,” and my heart is telling me it wants — even though they’re more typical of this time of year — fuchsias, hot pinks and corals.
Wearing Coup De Coeur
That said, I’ll always make room for another practical brown, especially one that’s hydrating and easy to wear. If you like neutrals, check out Coup De Coeur. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B
