NARS Andy Warhol Larger Than Life Lip Gloss Candy Says

Nars lip gloss candy says £19*
This beautiful shimmery gloss is part of the Nars Andy Warhol range which is a really lovely limited edition range out in time for Christmas! This is Candy Says named after a Velvet Underground song, who were produced by Andy Warhol, I've been getting a music history lesson from my boyfriend *he even has a book about it*. It's described by Nars as a shimmery strawberry pink, I think it's really wearable shade either on its own or on top of darker colours to add a hint of shimmer.

The consistency is lush, it smooths on really easily and is the perfect level of opacity to be worn by itself (this with the revlon eyeliner reviewed here makes a perfect 60s/ Adele make up look) but it's still sheer enough to go on top of my darker lipsticks to add luminosity. It's not too sticky so your hair is safe, normally my biggest lipgloss bug bear. The gloss lasts pretty well too but I'm more than happy to pull this out of my bag for reapplication as the packaging looks beautiful and I've had a fair few people ask about it.
The brush is teeny tiny which worried me at first but it's actually really good and makes application precise and smooth. Another plus to the small brush is to use it just in the centre of my lips and blend out a little which makes them look all 3D and huge.
This is it on by itself but I'm definitely going to include it in another post on top of lipstick as that's how I mostly wear it. The more I look at this photo the more I like it like this too. It's just so easy to wear and I'm usually a lipstick girl so I'm surprised how much I like it. I have a few more Nars/Andy Warhol bits on my Christmas list (Penny Arcade & the Edie set namely!)

Have you checked out this range yet? Are you a lipstick or lipgloss fan usually?

    1. Thanks! I didn't think I could either but I really liked this, I think I was flicking up too much before this direction is more wearable x

  3. This looks beautifully done, I might actually try some gel eyeliner because I am MUCH too shaky of the hand to do anything (other than a wiggly line!) with liquid eyeliner. Is this much easier?

    1. I found it lots easier to get this thick line, it wasn't so easy for a subtle look though x
