The other day, I met up with my mom for the sole purpose of helping her find some new shoes for work. I tagged a long as she tried on pairs after pairs of black booties, but none of them did the trick.
Then as we were leaving The Bay, with the intention of hitting up another store, I saw the NARS counter in front of us. At the time, I only owned one NARS lipstick, but it was by far my favourite one (Deborah in the Audacious line). I had been wanting to purchase a second for a while, but just couldn’t bring myself to spend the money.
So I bee-lined it to the lipstick set up, and immediately started swatching new colours. My mom, never one to be left out, quickly joined in. The make-up artist found us soon enough, and encouraged my mom to try on something a little bit more red, especially since she is so often drawn to purples.
Then my mom asked about foundations, because she has been struggling to find light coverage that suits her skin tone. The makeup artist introduced her to their Sheer Glow Foundation… and to primers, blush, and contouring. Meanwhile, I found Mona, one of NARS’ newest Audacious Lipsticks, and I fell in love.
