Nars Pure Matte Lipsticks will be hitting the counters at Saks Fifth Avenue on 1 September. The new lippie will be exclusive to Saks, for now.
The range of mattes will include shades in Volga (a deep aubergine), Bangkok (a soft rose), Tonkin (a plum), Tere De Feue (a blackish cherry), Tashkent (a nude beige) and Vesuvio (a bold red) — the unscented, unflavored line conditions lips with hydrating vitamin E, wild mango butter and acai oil. All essential ingredients for smooth and plump lips.
Francois Nars is a makeup genius! Here are some of Nars’ tips for wearing lipstick:
- For a modern matte look, choose a lip color close to your natural skin tone, or pair a darker lip color with simple face makeup
- For full, hard-to-miss lips, go with an audacious color spruced up with a dab of gloss or shimmer applied in the middle
- Use lip liner to fill the shape of your lips, but make sure you blend out any obvious edges
- Avoid over-applying your lipstick; the more you wearing, the heavier it looks (and, interestingly, the quicker it wears off)
