Hi ya’ll! I’m debuting a new series today on the blog called The Favorites. These semi-regular posts will be single-product focuses on my favorites pieces in my collection, the ones I reach for and wear time and again. The Favorites are all products I’ve purchased myself and are considered permanent items in their respective brands (basically, I won’t be featuring anything that is limited edition or discontinued).
To kick it off, here’s one of my very favorite lipsticks from NARS – Dressed to Kill. NARS describes this as a “fuchsia rose with gold shimmer.” I see it more of a neutral rose, but the gold shimmer is definitely there. It’s a little chunky when applying, but it’s not an in-your-face shimmer. Just enough to give your lips a little dimension to the satin finish and isn’t really noticeable unless you look really closely.
Dressed to Kill has buildable sheer-to-medium coverage, which combined with the neutral tone pinky-red, makes this an easy lipstick to throw in my purse no matter what else I’m wearing on my face. I’ve worn this during the day, evening, as a bridesmaid, to professional events, even a job interview. It’s a lipstick that will flatter and brighten for any occasion and one I consider a ride or die. It has about a 4 hour wear time, but wears evenly to rosy stain.
NARS Dressed to Kill is available to purchase at Sephora for $27 (non-affiliate link, just wanted to make it easy to find!)
