Nars Cruella - the perfect red lip?

I have never owned a red lipstick before because I have never found one that I thought suited me, however I felt that Christmas was the right time to try to find the right red. I am a big Nars fan & I really love the formulation of the Velvet Matte Lip Pencils (I already own Damned), so I thought I would try a red from that line. I think when you are new to a colour range that you are unsure of, matte is the way to go because gloss can be very full-on. There were a few to choose from, so after doing some research, I decided on Cruella.

It is a blue-toned red, which eases the worry of making teeth look yellow as I think a lot of reds have a tendency to do that. I think is the type of red that would suit pretty much all skin tones. It is a not too bright, but not very dark. The formula is perfect - very pigmented & non-drying. It is very comfortable to wear & is very long-lasting.

I am so happy that I bought this and know that I will wear it loads over the Christmas period!

  1. Sounds like a lovely shade - bonus if it makes teeth look whiter!

  5. I was thinking of you when I tried this because I remember you saying before that you hadn't found the right red for you yet - the same as me, but I am so happy I took a chance & bought this. Definitely swatch it & see what you think. I love that it's matte, but not flat & a very flattering shade! xx

  6. ASOS sell it & have 20% off until tomorrow morning...... #justsayin! xx

  7. I'm actually in love with this after picking up the Digital World Set (which I've reviewed today actually, at: http://amyscornerblog.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/blogmas-16-nars-digital-world-set-review.html). 'Cruella' is my favourite from the set and I can't stop wearing it, it's beautiful! Glad you've also managed to find a red to suit you as you've mentioned before you didn't really have one :) x


  8. I just spotted that on your blog! I think you should try Damned next!
