the one

finding “theeee one” is know to be rather difficult, and some might argue impossible… but i can safely say that i have found the one. the one that has it all! of course we are talking about lipstick here…

nars velvet mat lip pencil madeau.001

nars, velvet matt lip pencil in dragon girl is the perfect not-too-pink, no-too-dark, saturated red. even though it has a matt finish and is extremely long-lasting, it does not dry out the lips, and conveniently leaves them kissable for when the one (human) does happen to come along. the “pencil” aspect of it might require sharpening, but on the other had can create a defined look without the need for a lipliner. and you guessed it…. it has a permanent spot in my make-up bag.
