The Sultry Season: NYX Violet Ray Lipstick
NYX Violet Ray Round Lipstick ($4.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep raspberry red with fuchsia sheen. it’s semi-opaque and goes on a touch streaky, but it’s a great affordable option for a sultry lip this season. It wears about three to four hours, but it’s not drying at all. I like how there is some glossiness in the finish, which helps to make it look smoother. This is a versatile shade that works for the vampier fall lip but also as more festive holiday lip color.
Is this the right berry for you? Would you wear it?
The Sultry Season is a series of posts featuring deep, rich shades of brown, berry, plum, and wine lipsticks and lipglosses — just right for autumn — that runs through October 2010.

NARS Bento Box for Holiday 2010
Throughout all of his extensive international travels, Founder and Creative Director François Nars has always found Japanese culture to be a great source of inspiration, specifically the concept of Kabuki makeup. Years ago, after traveling to Japan, François brought back a small, porcelain pot with a red film of color– Kabuki makeup for the lips.
Debuting this holiday season after years of development is the NARS Bento Box Set – a limited edition set of two Kabuki cups that were hand-poured with a new exclusive-to-NARS lipstick formula in highly pigmented shades containing Vitamin E. Housed in a handmade bento box, the set also comes with a Kabuki lip brush, designed for precise application by dipping the brush into the cup and blending until desired coverage is achieved.
Fusing two inspirations together, François chose Daphne Guinness to once again be the face of NARS with her evocative portrayal of classic theatrical Kabuki makeup.
Only one thousand sets were created for sale in the United States and will retail for $125, and just over two thousand in total were created worldwide.
Availability: November 1st, 2010, but there is a notification list available at NARS.
