You know that feeling when you find the perfect lipstick? One that just seems to flatter you so well that you vow to wear it every single day?
I think I've found it.
Gipsy by NARS is described as a "sheer warm berry" shade, however I would say that it looks like more of a warm, earthy, brick-colored red. Either way, the warm undertones are perfect for me because I have very olive skin, and usually it's difficult for me to find a shade of red that's flattering and isn't a true shade of red.
The texture is sheer, so if you're looking for color that doesn't exactly "pop" you can wear this without lip liner. The only downfall to this is that the lipstick itself doesn't have very good staying power. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the sheer consistency so I'll throw a red lip-liner underneath ("Cherry" by MAC seems to do just fine.)
I usually struggle with lipsticks as I have a very small, curvy mouth. However the consistency of this lipstick is creamy so it applies beautifully -- I don't think I've ever applied a lipstick that was so easy for me to hit every little curve of my lips.
The entire line of NARS lipsticks come in 32 shades and are infused with vitamin E to keep lips moisturized and the lipstick's color locked into place. Each shade imparts a semi-matte finish so that lips are looking velvety and full-bodied with a sheer finish.
Have any of you tried Gipsy? Or rather any lipstick by NARS?
