I rarely wear red lipstick. It’s because I’m not used to seeing myself in it and I feel rather clownish. A few weekends ago, my friend Courtney let me try her NARS Heat Wave lipstick and I fell in love. It’s red but more of an orange red, a bright orange red 🙂 It’s one of those shades that looks good on everyone. So I made my first red lipstick purchase this week and wore it out last night. I got a few compliments on it so I must not look like Bobo the clown.
NARS lipstick is semi-matte, a little creamy and goes on really easily. I think Heat Waves looks best on me with my hair in a high messy bun and minimal makeup. Wear blues or whites to really make the color pop.
Try it for yourself. Sephora is great for testing makeup. Purchase online, get 3 free samples and return it to the store if you need to!
