Today, I’m reviewing NARS’ Dragon Girl Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and I can’t believe it took me that long to do it. It’s a perfect red color, that comes in the form of a lip pencil. It’s a very vibrant, cherry-red, with cool undertones, which I love. It’s super easy to use, and gives you precision, since it’s a pencil rather than a classic lipstick, but it’s creamy and quite opaque. It’s not drying, but it’s not moisturizing either. It lasts a long time on your lips, without having to re-apply it’s perfect for summer or winter, and it’s almost matte without too much of a transfer when drinking/eating. I really like its color, so if you don’t mind the hefty price tag, go for it!
Let’s talk about Nars’ bronzing powder in the shade “casino”. I got it a couple of months ago, when the brand officially entered the Greek market, through Sephora, and I immediately liked its shade. It’s a very natural and warm color, that works great for light skintones such as mine. It’s easily blendable, and you can build the color for a more intense look, or if you have a darker skintone than mine. You get that beautiful bronzed look we all want for the summer days in a very natural way, and it’s my go-to product these days. So say bye bye to contouring, and hello to bronzing, because summer wants you more natural and radiant. Check it out at your local Sephora or online.
This month’s wishlist is gonna be less of a wishlist, and more of a summer essentials list. I’m writing this post in advance, because, as you already know I’m in Chios island for my cousin’s wedding, and I’m already in a summer holidays mood. Since we have hot summer weather here in Greece, all I can think lately is the beach, summer cocktails, and beautiful items to make my summer vacations more special. This post is a bit different from the usual wishlists I do, and I hope you welcome it with excitement. hehe
