It's all in the details. When creating an outfit, I find the greatest satisfaction in finding that "finishing touch" element—whether it's in matching prints, colors, or the unexpected statement piece. Sometimes the finishing touch comes in the form of a luscious lip color.

This season I was searching for a Sangria red to add to my lipstick wardrobe. I experimented with YSL Rouge Volupté (12) and Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Intense (44) but found my perfect match in NARS. The NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Palais Royal is a beautiful shade of deep maroon with berry undertones. I love the pencil's long-wearing pigment, but most of all the moisture behind its vitamin-enriched formula. Although creamy, the lip color never feels heavy or overwhelming. Pair this shade with some bold accessories, and your look is complete.
What are some of your favorite lip colors for the season? I'd love to hear your recommendations! Thank you for visiting, and I'll have a winter-inspired look for you soon!
