Read these lips: Revel in a quarter of a decade of artistry
Evocative. Groundbreaking. Rulechallenging. Nars has always embodied make-up that’s made for artistry, selfexpression, and living your boldest looks. The brand celebrated its 25th anniversary and with it, they brought the revolutionary vision of founder and creative director François Nars and launched their largest range of 60 lip shades in addition to their existing 12 shades (you’ll see these now encased in an exclusive 25th anniversary red packaging). Colour choice aside, try the textures and fall hard — there are shades in matte, satin and sheer finishes that are lightweight, sensorial and go on evenly. Passionfruit seed and moringa seed oils work to help preserve and enhance the colour’s vibrancy. With tongue-in-cheek names like Sexual Healing and Start Your Engines, there are #norulesjustlips. Pick one (or two, or a few!) and pucker up!
"Nars lipstick in Roman Holiday"
WHEN IN ROME
Every woman wants to feel a little bit seductive, a little bit naughty. Before you catch flights, transport yourself to Rome with Roman Holiday — a pink in the sheer family that’ll give you a just-bitten look.
"Nars lipstick in Banned Red"
LIFT THE BAN
Banned Red is at once exquisite in its hands-off name and unexpected colour. Signalling what’s offlimits, this is a nude red that’s in the brown spectrum but matches to lips perfectly as a look-at-me shade. A real surprise.
"Nars lipstick in Jungle Red"
THE WILD SIDE
Swatch Jungle Red and no other lipstick will ever compare. It’s so close to true red with blue undertones, so it suits all skin tones and really pops on any pout. Try it and set your heart aflutter.
"Nars lipstick in Soul Train"
Wear the dark lip trend of the season and be a little more than boyish — Soul Train is a seductive deep purple that’ll rock anyone’s socks. We’d match with wild hair, shimmery eyes and glowing skin.
