Nars satin lipsick in toledé


This lipstick was rather an impulse buy.  I was browsing the Space NK store (that place always sucks me in) and i decided it was time to try a few more Nars bits and pieces. Having never head much about or tried one of the lipsticks they have on offer, i thought i'd take a risk and pick up toledé, a pinky nude shade, as i'd been looking for a new subtle nude for a while now.

Nars toledé lipstick is described as a 'pink rose' with a distinct warm tone. On me it pulls more nude than rosy but on lighter skintones it would be distinctly more pink. It has a lovely satin finish and a soft, creamy texture which glides on with ease and leaves my dry lips feeling comforatable. The colour payoff is rather opaque, but the sheen means its not too bold or overpowering, and it leaves your lips looking quite natural, enhancing your overall look, not being the centre of it. These qualities make this lipstick the perfect your lips but better shade for me, meaning its become a staple in my makeup bag. This lipstick would be perfect for a minimal makeup day, school, or to tie a smokey eye look together. With the texture being so creamy you'd think it would have poor lasting powder, but i find this lipstick lasts a good 4 hours on the lips, and survives drinking and eating relatively well. I do still tend to reapply it though as my lips feel so comfortable and hydrated with it on!

The only downside is that this lipstick costs £18.50 and you get a very small amount of product, so if you wore this everyday it would not last all that long. For me, i like to switch between bold and nude lips day to day, so it will last slightly longer, but if your on more of a budget and like to stick to just one lipstick, then it may not be for you. 

I love this lipstick and could not recommend it enough to anyone looking for a subtle everyday shade or avid smokey eye wearers looking for the perfect lip colour to pair with them. This lipstick would suit so many skintones, and i'm so happy i decided to take a risk and buy it. I can definitely see myself repurchasing!
