I don’t know your skin tone, but I know mine and how lucky I am to know that almost all shades of red look good on me. I said almost, ok?
Now let’s talk about the velvet lip glide from NARS. Since I got it at a Sephora event last month, I never took it out of my purse. Yes, you are reading correctly: I received this lipstick in a goodie bag, but that doesn’t mean I am going to talk about it in a flattering way as a way of saying thank you to the brand. NO, not at all. I was honestly obsessed about it, and that is why I am talking about it.

This is a shiny red, with a creamy finish, that gives the feeling of a smooth texture, soft like velvet. It slides like a gloss but the finish is like a lipstick, non sticky.
I think this red is mixed with warm shades of orange, although the characteristics tell you that it is a “bright yellow red”. Costing around 27/30EUR, this piece of red is a great investment.
