Zou Bisou Bisou

I did it.

I took the plunge.  I dared to be bold, to reinvent myself… slightly.  I dared take a leap I’d been afraid to explore for so long.

I bought red lip color, and I wore it.  In public.  Twice.

In my teeny-weeny micro universe, this is kind of huge.  Since I recently became a parent, I’ve been making a career out of wearing yoga pants and hoodies.  It’s not quite fashionable.  Given the amount of baby drool and spit-up in my life these days, I often opt for comfort over style when à la maison. Nothing flashy.

Yet, sometimes I want a little more.  I don’t want to always feel like a walking potato sack.  Especially nowadays, where it’s easy to get sucked into that vortex of doing everything for everyone else but myself.  I often neglect those minuscule gestures of self-care that make me feel good.  We owe it to ourselves to invest in and prioritize our well-beings too, to keep life fun and exciting.

Buying some red lip color seemed like a perfectly logical way to treat myself.  No regrets!

Little tube, big results.

Lip lovers, take note: Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment is everything you’ll ever want in a lip color.  Long lasting. Light.  Most importantly, being a matte, it did not dry my lips like other matte lip colors. The pigment is rich and intense. However, I was able to remove it with a few swipes of a cleansing cloth easily. I opted for the ‘Under My Thumb’ shade, which is a deep burgundy that looks great against my translucent… err… fair… skin tone.  Also, my usual thinned pucker was quite voluptuous. Impec!

I had a fun time practicing my best smoochy face for this post, as you can see.  When you feel great about yourself, and the lighting is perfect, just run with it.

I love Nars, and not because of its French origins or because I pretend that I’m Vanessa Paradis when I wear it.  Well, that helps.  This color really brings renewed life to my pout.  On those big nights out, I feel sassier.

Now, how many bisous can it withstand?  I guess I’ll just have to continue the research!

Bisou, bisou! Don’t let the stoic expression fool you, he loved every second.
