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.
