Let’s get real for a moment, it doesn’t take a whole lot to persuade me to go out and buy beauty products. The nudge from reading a rave review from a blogger I like, the pages of a glossy magazine; I’m an advertiser’s dream I tell you! But an endorsement by one of my absolute favourite musicians/people in the world, that’s a whole different ball game. Want levels reaching an all time high.
It all started when I found myself browsing through Taylor Swift style blogs (which is totally how all cool kids spend their evening) and stumbled upon extracts from interviews discussing Taylor’s signature red lip. All led me down the road to the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl. I happily skipped down to a NARS Counter the following day and it was easy as that.
I’m sure you’ve heard the usual spiel about these pencils. They’re about as matte as can be and long lasting which are two crucial checkpoints on my list of bold lip requirements. D.G. is a vibrant red shade that borders on fuchsia making it a unique addition to any lipstick stash.
D.G. is one of those shades that can be paired with barely-there makeup to create a polished look in a matter of seconds. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, liquid eyeliner at the ready of create a feline flick in true Taylor style.
Now I have the Red Lip, Classic thing Taylor likes (I’m so sorry!), I think it’s going a shade that I’ll be wearing all summer long.
What do you think of Dragon Girl?
