The Favorites: NARS Dressed to Kill Lipstick

Hi ya’ll! I’m debuting a new series today on the blog called The Favorites. These semi-regular posts will be single-product focuses on my favorites pieces in my collection, the ones I reach for and wear time and again. The Favorites are all products I’ve purchased myself and are considered permanent items in their respective brands (basically, I won’t be featuring anything that is limited edition or discontinued).

To kick it off, here’s one of my very favorite lipsticks from NARS – Dressed to Kill. NARS describes this as a “fuchsia rose with gold shimmer.” I see it more of a neutral rose, but the gold shimmer is definitely there. It’s a little chunky when applying, but it’s not an in-your-face shimmer. Just enough to give your lips a little dimension to the satin finish and isn’t really noticeable unless you look really closely.

Dressed to Kill has buildable sheer-to-medium coverage, which combined with the neutral tone pinky-red, makes this an easy lipstick to throw in my purse no matter what else I’m wearing on my face. I’ve worn this during the day, evening, as a bridesmaid, to professional events, even a job interview. It’s a lipstick that will flatter and brighten for any occasion and one I consider a ride or die. It has about a 4 hour wear time, but wears evenly to rosy stain.

Swatch! This is about three swipes, so you can see it isn't totally opaque.

NARS Dressed to Kill is available to purchase at Sephora for $27 (non-affiliate link, just wanted to make it easy to find!)
