NARS Audacious Lipstick. Claudia (left) and Catherine (right)

Press SampleTime to get up close and personal with two of my favorite new lipsticks from the NARS Audacious Lipstick line, Claudia and Catherine!  Sorry for the lippie sweat in this photo.  A hazard of desert living is that if your lipsticks are shipped on a 110+ degree day, they might end up sweating like these. :-( The good news is these beautiful NARS Audacious Lipsticks are still very much usable, so click through for swatches of Claudia and Catherine, as well as buying information!

City Lips: Nude York and Sun Diego

Press SampleI’ve told my readers a million times that my skin is very sensitive. While I LOVE lip plumpers–more for their ability to smooth out fine lines on the lips than for the plumping action–some formulas irritate the skin around my lips, leaving it red and inflamed.  As a result, testing new plumping product is something I don’t do often, but when I received an email from City Lips, I decided I was due!
