Name: Nars Larger Than Life lipgloss in Tiber
Where: Space N.K counters, NARS online
After reading an article in the daily mail of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, I fell in love with a particular lip colour that my namesake had on. It was a warm beige/brown colour that looked lovely and natural – but stood out. Now, I have been on a ‘nude is good’ phase for a while now so decided to do some research on what sort of make up KK used.
I found out the brand – NARS, and found out this particular colour she had on was ‘Turkish Delight’ and, as luck would have it, there was a NARS counter in the Space NK store in Covent Garden. I get a warm and fuzzy feeling when I know I’m about to buy something new to try! Off I went one afternoon but to my disappointment, the colour did not look right on me. I tried a few other colours out and came across Tiber – a light brown coloured offering. At first glance, I decided it was not for me – brown would blend into my skin tone and I would look like an all in one tree trunk. I tried it on anyway – I didn’t have any gloss on at the time and to my surprise, it didn’t look as bad as I thought it would – I actually liked it! At £19.00, it’s a hefty price tag for sure – but I did fall in love with the colour and have using it quite alot since.
