Finding the right lipstick color is not unlike that one pair of jeans you reach for every time you get dressed. It’s usually a process – trying on different colors, brands, finishes, until you land on that one that’s exactly what you were looking for. The ever-elusive colors for me are the perfect holiday red and a great nude that doesn’t make me look like a corpse. Color me thrilled when I found them both in one set. The NARS Free Your Mind Mini Lipstick Set is a four-pack with the perfect red, a pretty nude, a plum, and a berry-colored lipstick. The Inappropriate Red is a striking red lipstick with a poppy-undertone, which is flattering for my fair skin. I love the matte finish, but that it’s still very comfortable to wear.
Here’s a look at the four colors on me:
One way that I love to test out new lipstick colors is by purchasing a set like this. I like that I get to try a few different options in one fell swoop, offering up any colors that don’t work for me to family or friends. This set would also be a great holiday gift! You could keep all the lipsticks together or break them up and add them to four individual gifts as an add-on.
Speaking of holiday gift ideas, here are a few more options from Nordstrom, which is a great place to buy beauty gifts. They always have good sets from some of the most popular brands every year!
