A little while ago some of you may remember I posted about a NARS haul that I did, a little bit overdue, but here's the post on the lipstick I picked up that day.
NARS Barbarella is a peachy, glossy lipstick. It's one of the 30 shades that come in the sheer formula. I'd had my eye on this lipstick for a while after seeing it whilst on a shopping trip with a friend down in London, after trying it on I wasn't sure, as I have lots of peachy lipsticks but the colour totally grew on my and I bought one as soon as I got back home.
You can see from the swatches that it's a gorgeous, subtle peach/pink and that the formula is very sheer, it glides on and feels really smooth on the lips. As it's sheer, I would say that you have to reapply more often than you would a matte or stain formula but I found that applying it over a nude lipliner (applied lightly over your lips) helps the colour cling a bit more. I prefer just wearing the lipstick alone for a soft glossy natural look.
