Don’t you just love it when a store you regularly visit; finally rewards you for your loyalty? Well this happened to me yesterday! I love Space NK in the UK; it’s our closet comparison to Sephora. I am forever nipping in to browse the Nars counter. Now on the brink of first name terms! I hate it when that happens; it affirms the ‘addict’ status of which we all hold. Anyway, I went in to get my belated birthday treat, that the Ndulge loyalty programme was kind enough to give me. This treat entails a free Eve Lom lip balm; a very kind gift I must admit. As I handed over my Ndulge card for the pain free swipe; the lovely sales assistant spotted her moment to earn some commission, no matter how small. She casually dropped into the conversation of Mulberry handbags that I had £10 to spend. Well as you can imagine that was it, over I went to the Nars counter, perusing until something caught my eye. Surprise, surprise a lip product gleamed at me and it was love at first sight. So this is the little product I’m going to share with you. A lovely Nars Lip Lacquer, that enhanced my ‘I’m robbing Space NK today’ high!
I give you Sweet Charity, a beautiful soft purple toned lip sheen. It looks so easy-going and natural on the lips, adding sheen rather than colour. The scent is not overly pleasant, but the consistency is lovely. It’s not too sticky, and is perfect for minimal makeup days. Tub presentation aside; I wouldn’t suggest that this is overly moisturising; no more so than a lip gloss, however it wears much more effortlessly than a gloss. I often find glosses hard to wear throughout the day; it’s tough to get the balance of gleam just right. I feel like a little girl when the sparkle is OTT. This is the first lip lacquer I have tried from Nars; but thanks to this little number, I may investigate further.
So go into Space NK and check your loyalty card goodies, you never know how much you might have!
Thanks for reading.
