Playing It Safe

I'd been trying to put off this purchase for as long as possible, or simply avoid it altogether, but you know how I am with sales. And lip products. This was one of my two purchases during the Sephora VIB Rouge sale last month: NARS Audacious lipstick in Anna. Of all the possible choices, this one is delightfully boring, but it's right up my street and I've already been wearing the heck out of it. 

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anna - a smokey rose

The subtle purple tone isn't really coming across in the tube, but while being quite "safe", it still has a bit of interest to it. Lately I've been layering it on top of MAC's Soar lipliner and they pair together really beautifully. The formula is creamy and hydrating and it stays put for a decent amount of time. That is, unless I've been eating or drinking, and then it's nearly all rubbed off and in desperate need of a touch-up! But I love the way the colour plays against my fair skin, so I'm willing to forgive and forget on that one :) 

I've seen a couple of the more vibrant shades on some other blogs, namely Buy Now Blog Later, and I'm very very tempted. The price point is holding me back though - these babies are not cheap! I think I need to hold out for another VIB sale, and maybe start thinking about using up some of the (many) (mostly abandoned) lipsticks I already have...

As for how often you'll be seeing me on here in the near future - I'm really hoping to have a productive December! I have a lot on my list for my YouTube channel (including some giveaways, so make sure you're subscribed!) but I also want to keep busy on my blog. I have a lot of fun taking photos and writing posts, so hopefully I'll be having some extra special brainwaves of inspiration (whatever that is) this month!

Love to you all, and I hope your Decembers are filled with joy and love.
