Lipstick Diaries #8: NARS Michiyo and Urban Decay Native
You can tell we're getting to the end of the line here with the Lipstick Diaries: I'm only posting about stuff I know I love.
First up is NARS Michiyo, one of the new Audacious lipsticks. It's clear why this formula was instantly popular on its release: it's pigmented, creamy, and has good wear time without being uber-matte or excessively drying. It does, actually, dry my lips out a bit, but only a bit; I can wear Michiyo for a good 6 hours with minimal fading, no smearing, and bearable dryness/tightness at the end of the day. What I really love about Michiyo is its bright, saturated, cool-toned goodness. Yes, it's very similar to Viva Glam Miley Cyrus, but Michiyo is more purple and a hair darker and shut up let me have this.
Next, Urban Decay Native, one of the only nudes I've ever loved! Don't let the blush (which isn't supposed to be that color) fool you: this one truly suits my skintone. It's a soft, delicate pink in a creamy, comfortable formula. This one isn't as long-wearing as Michiyo or MAC Faux, but it's less drying. When I wear a dark eye look, this is my go-to shade.
