NARS Chelsea Girls and Belle de Jour

I recently bought NARS Chelsea Girls lip lacquer and NARS Belle de Jour lipstick. The top swatch is the Chelsea girls and the bottom swatch is the Belle de Jour.
I really really love this lip lacquer. For me, it is the perfect nude clour and looks great on, but it does have a few things which let it down..
1) the cost - at £17.50 it is not cheap
2) it does not last AT ALL. You have to keep re-applying, so i can see this running out pretty quickly
3) the taste - it has that weird lanolin type taste, which is not particularly nice
4) the pot is teeny so if you are out and don't have a lip brush with you, you have to use your finger - which is virtually impossible if you have long nails.

But other than those things, i do really love this product and would buy it again.
The Belle de Jour lipstick - hmmm i am not sure on this one yet. When i first opened it, i was shocked at how orange it was. It kind of reminds me of those really garish American Tan tights. But saying that, i haven't really given it a chance yet, so i may get it to work for me.
Love NARS packaging!

This is the Chelsea girls lacquer. It seems a bit washed out in this picture maybe? it is a really gorgeous colour.

All in all, i will definitely be re-purchasing the Chelsea Girls (even with all it's bad points) but probably not the Belle de Jour - even if it's meant to be Kim Kardashian's favourite!

Until next time



  1. Oh wow I really love this one. Love natural/pink colors on lips.

    I have a question for you! Maybe you can help me to choose the right hair color and leave a comment on my blog

  2. I've never heard of this, but I love hearing all about new make up products. I get stuck in a rut, so keeps me inspired. I might want to look into this as it sounds great! xx

  3. If you are worried about your hair style then you can try our different types of hair extensions which would make them more stylish. Like Wholesale Hair Extensions and Flip in Hair Extensions. It would not only make your hairs look extended but also give it a volume with the help of the best clip in hair extensions or Remy Clip in Hair Extensions.
