NARS Killer Shine Lipsticks

NARS Killer Shine Lipstick ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, limited edition formula designed for the collection that’s supposed to have “daring color and dramatic luster.” The texture feels a little heavier, thicker, and creamier than their standard range of lipsticks, but it is glossier and thinner than the Audacious Lipstick formula.

NARS Vengeful Dual-Intensity Blush Duo

NARS Vengeful Dual-Intensity Blush ($45.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains a highlighter and blush shade in the wet/dry Dual Intensity formula. I like this formula, but the ratings may make it appear less desirable, which is a result of NARS claiming that it is more intense dry and “translucent” applied wet–the complete opposite of reality. (Even funnier, this isn’t how the eyeshadow version of the formula is described!) I think if you tend to like this type of wet/dry formula, it’s a formula worth considering. This duo gave me a very fall-into-holiday vibe, as you have the rustiness of the blush shade that represents fall, while the more traditional shimmering gold screams holiday.

5 Faves: Satin Lipsticks for Fall 2015

I find that I actually prefer a satin finish to a matte one as a personal preference; satins have a little sheen and offer more comfort than your average matte, but they aren’t truly glossy either. Here are some of my favorites for fall!

  1. Urban Decay Backtalk — a muted rosy pink
  2. Maybelline Touch of Spice — a medium-dark rose
  3. NARS Vivien — a rosy berry
  4. Estee Lauder Unattainable — a reddish-berry pink
  5. Urban Decay 1993 — a muted brown
