I have to admit, when it comes to choosing the garments i wear I've always stayed true to minimal prints, and rich solids... mostly a trend i admire so much about my mother. When i decide to fuel my obsession with ANY product possible in the cosmetic universe- i do the same. For me, it's not so much about the price of such products, but the quality- the way you feel inside when your wearing it!
I can barely go to the drug store without helplessly finding myself scoping the aisles hoping, praying i will get my hands on a new lipstick or nail polish that is comparable or exceeds the 'trendy' name brand price tag. Don't you?
When i found this little number by NARS a few years ago, my whole thrifty aspect on product shopping took an extensive Roman Holiday. The color is semi-matte, smooth, and an an indisputable shade of velvety pastel pink. This is one of those throw-it-on , instant gratification type of deals. So loud and passionate, you wouldn't mind going nude.
Since that day, i have yet to find a substitution that can compete with the rather pricey $24 NARS price tag. Don't cringe-it's beyond worth it; quite possibly for any of their effortlessly luxurious products.
