My Desert Island Lip Pick

Salut mes amis,

If you could only choose one lip product to wear for the rest of your life, which one would it be? Say, if you were stranded on a deserted island? Today's post is my very first tag ever, passed over by the lovely Nancy of the Dark Side of Beauty. Here's my lipstick pick, can you guess what it is?
Read more to find out!!

My "desert island lip pick" is Nars lipstick in Niagara *shocker*. I love this color so much, I can eat it for breakfast. The shade is very flattering--it is both bright and easy to wear and the formula seriously lasts all day. I don't know of any dupes for Niagara, and I want to thank the NARS color specialist that came up this one. This lipstick never fails me and I always feel like a million bucks when I have it on; regardless of what I'm wearing or how my hair looks. Hence, it is the perfect choice for my deserted island trip :))

Here's the scenario / tag:

You are going to be cast away on a deserted island, but you must maintain your fabulousness. The trick is, it can only be a lip product. What ONE lip colour could you happily live with for the rest of your days? This isn’t about your favourite or what’s haute at the moment. It should be something that doesn’t require lip liner or mixing with some other colour to make it look good. This should be a colour that you don’t have to think twice about because you know it will never fail to make you look flirty, bold or seductive every time you wear it. What would it be?

The Rules

  1. Choose your ONE Desert Island Lip colour (lipstick, stain, lip pencil, OR gloss) 
  2. Tell us why you’ve picked it (what makes it special, timeless, or the bomb)
  3. Post a photo of yourself wearing the lipstick (full face)
  4. *You may only use these other types of products in your photo:

  • foundation/concealer/powder
  • groomed brows
  • mascara
  • Desert Island Lip Product
  • Tag 3 other beauty bloggers
*No paintpots, eyeshadows, eyeliners, blush, contouring, highlighters or additional lip liners

Sorry, I didn't quite follow the rules--I wore eyeshadow... sue me :)) I took these pix after I read the rules and wasn't about to wash off my freshly done ojos. If you want to see me without any makeup (mascara only) click here.
I tag: Lilit, Meredith, Sonia :)))

  3. i love the color. i recently bought CG spellbound. i love the color so much, i am not sure if i look good on them but i just adore it.

  5. That last picture of you is like omg UH-DOOR-A-BLE. I die. Great choice for a lifetime lippie as well. Seems appropriate for day or night and would go well with lots of looks.

    I feel like this tag will be really challenging for me (though thanks so much for the shoutout!) as I only just started really wearing lipsticks and my collection is ... lacking to say the least. I'll have a root through them though and see which one I couldn't live without.

    I hope you're never actually stranded on a desert island though - cause then no more posts!
