Putting on a Pout
This isn’t just any nude lip–it’s a nude nude lip. Although I’m a committed hoarder of nude glosses, stains, pencils, and rouges, I have a very specific preference—nude with a rose base. True nudes—those without any color to warm the shade—bother me more than I would like to admit. After all, there’s a strong correlation between poorly matched nude shades and folks wandering about that look like walking corpses or Tyrone Biggums. It’s a good thing that this shade from NARS’ new satin lip pencil collection—Floralies—felt right and looked great. If you have darker lips like me, use a liner to ensure a vibrant pout.
