It was Anita who saw my tweet about it, did some digging and found out it was Schiap by NARS. Thank you my dear friend, for now I am $30 poorer and my heart has been stolen yet again. Here's what it looks like in daylight on a normal person:
Along with MAC's Toxic Tale (from the Venomous Villians collection) this has got to be one of the brightest lipsticks I own..and I love it! It reminds me of Vasanti's France, but this is the ultra sexy, jacked up version. Here's the FOTD:
And then I did a little photo shoot with my iMac. The lipstick doesn't look as bright in these photos, but I think you get the point:
Everything about this lipstick is hot, hot, hot! The most important feature is that it's LONG-LASTING, I'd say a good 6-8hour wear...in fact, I had to use makeup remover to get it off at night. This was officially my first NARS purchase (no, I have not jumped on the Orgasm band wagon...yet) and I am very impressed. I foresee many more NARS lipsticks in my 2011 makeup drawer mmm-hmm!
Do you have any NARS lipstick recommendations for me?
I rocked Schiap at the office, and then at a trade show my company was participating in. It was awesome - I love the confidence boost a simple shade of lipstick can give a girl :) Because the lipstick is so bright I paired the look with this simple black dress and black tights combo (the photo below was taken on a different day) - this helped Schiap get the center-stage attention it deserves:
Now it's your turn...what do you think of Schiap? Would you rock it?
And don't give me any excuses about not being able to pull it off...instead read this post about wearing bold lip colours :)
Thanks for stopping by!
