Nars Blonde Venus Lipstick

This poster just epitomizes a beautiful hollywood starlet. Did anyone watch the oscars tonight? I didn't...

I did watch the NBA Allstar Game =) Congrats West!

The poster really has nothing to do with this post other than the name 'blonde venus'. I was really happy to find this lip color. The whole nude lip is sort of hard to achieve for me because I can never find the proper color for my skin tone. But Nars Blonde Venus gets pretty close. 
It is a light tan/peach color with a satin-matte finish. I found that the formula is actually sort drying in this formula, but of course if you apply some lip gloss then that wouldn't be a problem. And the color seemed to settle into the lines but other than that it has a good staying power(that's the great thing about dry lipsticks). I believe it stayed for 3-4 hours before having to reapply.

If it was a tinge more lighter this lipstick would probably wash me out, but it's seems to work out for me. Me likey. 

This product retails for $24 and can be found at Nordstrom, Narscosmetics.com, etc.

  1. I went make-up shopping yesterday and I contemplated between a mac lipstick and a bars lipstick. Picked up Mac's 'Plink' instead. I might go and return it now after reading this post. Thanks for visiting my blog hun. You've got a new follower :) P.s, you're so pretty ^^

  2. I love peachy nude shades but you're right, it can be really hard to find the "right" shade for your skintone. I think that colour is lovely on you, subtle and pretty. I've been meaning to try Nars lipsticks but haven't purchased one yet - so many shades to choose from, hard to know which one I should start out with!

    2. You are so welcome! I can only imagine how gorgeous it is with a clear gloss on top!! A girl's got to have THE nude lipstick, period. I was thinking the same thing- since we wear the same NARS tinted moisturizer color this might work on me too!
