I have officially found my new favorite bold lipstick. Actually, it’s been one that I’ve been eyeing (and borrowing from Faith) for years now! Better late then never, right?NARS’ “Schiap” is the perfect blue-toned pink lipstick when you want an extra pop. It is a semi-matte formula so it’s such a nice blend of being hydrating without that extra shine. Also, I find that the formula allows the color to fade nicely – no worries of having that awkward ring around your lips. As someone who’s “going out” wardrobe is ENTIRELY black, this is my favorite way to introduce color. I apply it straight from the bullet for a gorgeous flush of color. If I’m wearing it during the day, or want a more subtle coloring, I’ll create a stained effect by just putting some lipstick on my finger and pressing it onto my lips. You can also add a small dab of gloss in the center of your lips for added dimension. Basically, no matter how you apply “Schiap” it’ll make a statement.
I find that the color does wear a bit differently depending on your skintone: check Emma Stone vs. Alexis Biedel vs. Kim K for reference. Regardless be ready for a spurt of happiness when you apply this lip!
