Last year to celebrate Nars' 20th anniversary a collection of 40 lipsticks was released. The line is described on the Nars website as "Modern lipstick so shamelessly seductive in touch and texture the
sensation is audacious. Unadulterated luxury glides on like satin across
skin with single-stroke coverage. A spectrum of 40 shades for
unstoppable impact". The collection is permanent, but a few of the shades are exclusive to Selfridges and the Nars website.
I currently own two lipsticks from the line; Claudia and Dominique. Both of the colours look so much more vibrant in the bullet than on the lips, but I prefer the colour on the lips.
Claudia is a cool toned pink, and probably the most Barbie pink I have in my lipstick collection. This was my first Nars lipstick so I wanted something different to what I normally go for. I tend to rock this when I'm feeling very girly.
Dominique is one of the exclusive to Selfridges shades. I swatched this shade back in December and fell in love. At the time though Selfridges was sold out. Last week I noticed that it was back in stock on the Selfridges website and so of course I had to go and buy it. It's a very unique Lavender shade, which is why I was drawn to it in the first place. I feel like I need to be careful with this shade though, because on a grey day it may make me look a little dead.
Review in short: Both shades are fully opaque, smooth to apply, and long lasting. They have a matte finish, but don't make the lips feel dry. Nars really know how to make a good lipstick! If only they didn't cost so much.
