$25 Saks gift certificate (means a trip to Biltmore Fashion Park in Phoenix) had to buy just 1 thing & I bought NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Bangkok. Is this telling me something? :) <3

Here’s what some of them had to say:

“For red lip color, my new favorite product is NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Vesuvio. It delivers a bold deep color and stays put for hours.”-Lake Bell

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick

Ladies and gentleman the new NARS Matte Lipstick in TASHKET is legendary. It gives the perfect nude lips and match my very light olive complexion. The shade is a pale peach-cream.  Marta Walsh LOVES!!! I like to layer it with MAC Dazzleglass is smile (lipgloss first then NARS Pure Matte lipstick in TASHKENT). Only sometimes I wear it pure matte because I’m clearly addicted to a glossy finish. Expect to see NARS Pure Matte Lipstick during upcoming New York Fashion Week SS 2011, and the red carpet. The hottest thing:)

NARS Cosmetics introducing Pure Matte Lipstick. “A matte lip is very modern, whether nude or deeply pigmented. Try a color close to your skin tone for a universally flattering look. Pair darker hues with a fresh complexion and little makeup. But, always choose a formula that has hydrating ingredients to condition lips.” -François Nars, Founder & Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics

Before its release there was a TON of buzz over NARS Pure Matte Lipstick- it was used as a staple backstage at New York Fashion Week and has graced the faces of celebrities all over the red carpet (see the most recent coverage from the Emmys here) !

Christina Hendricks At The Mad Men Season 4 Premiere

NARS Cosmetics worked with celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali to create the makeup look for “Mad Men” actress Christina Hendricks at the Season 4 Premiere last night, July 20th, 2010. NARS’ NEW Pure Matte Lipstick was key in creating her look along with other products from NARS’ Fall 2010 Color Collection.

“Christina’s sultry Dolce & Gabbana dress inspired a softer version of the “La Dolce Vita” makeup look. We kept it modern by using Bangkok Pure Matte Lipstick, which is a soft matte rose color for her lips,” says Vanessa Scali.

Christina Hendricks’ makeup look was achieved using the following NARS products:

Lancôme Color Design Matte Lipstick

Lancôme reinvents matte lipstick with their NEW Color Design Matte Lipstick, $22. The new formula is soft and creamy, glides effortlessly and comes in eight dreamy colors. The credit goes to the new formula; its mattifying agent isn’t a dull powder but a light-diffusing gel. High pigment levels ensure that it wears for hours, while soft waxes and emollients deliver modern slip.

Makeup artist Daniel Martin used the Bronze Show shade at the Chris Benz Fall 2010 presentation for the perfect update on the 90’s lipstick.

Lancôme & Chris Benz Go Gothic Chic for Fall 2010

New York Fashion Week Fall Winter 2010: Seattle native and downtown New York denizen Chris Benz saw all of his influences collide in a spectacular way on Monday, Febuary 15, 2010, for his Fall 2010 presentation. The collection mixes the patterns, textures and utility of clothes made for the Great Outdoors as worn by the renegade, Outward Bound Debutante.

Makeup Tutorial: Lead makeup artist Daniel Martin (who helped create the Chris & Tell shade with the designer for Spring 2010) wanted a “makeup” makeup look, so he and Chris settled on what they’re calling Gothic Chic. The eyes and the lips were given equal attention. The eyes were smoky in gradations of shimmery charcoal and chocolate. Daniel used the new Ombre Magnétique, a mousse-like cream shadow, in black, layered with Color Design Eye Shadow in Guest List, an opaque espresso shade. For the lashes, several coats of Hypnôse Drama Mascara in Excessive Black, and for the eyeliner, Le Stylo Waterproof EyeLiner in Noir along the waterline, completed the look.
