NARS Lipstick in Vendanges: Review, Photos & Swatches

Hey Sweeties, how are you guys doing? :) 
Vendanges is a sheer plummy brown lipstick with a slightly glossy finish. It was just released as part of the NARS Summer Collection but you can also find it in their range of sheer lipsticks. Its long lasting color pigments have been suspended in this translucent formula to provide a sheer, natural tint to the lips.

Vendanges is the French word for “harvest” which is the perfect description of this sheer plummy brown lipstick. Keep reading if you want to know how I feel about this product from NARS :)

I love that Vendanges is sheer, because that makes it more wearable for people with different skin tones. You can apply it with a light hand for just a wash of color or you can build it up and make it look deeper, it all comes down to personal preference.

I do like how soft Vendanges feels on my lips, but I feel that it gets a little dry after a while. But that little ''problem'' can be solved with adding a little bit of a lip balm before you apply the lipstick or a lip gloss after.

I'm a huge fan of the NARS packaging. The lipstick comes in a nice and dark tube which is matte and has the NARS logo in white on the lipstick cap. I think the black, matte packaging makes their products look really classy, sleek and well put together.

I really like that NARS decided to add this lipstick to their summer collection, because its not your typical summer shade. To me, this is more of a fall/winter shade and a color that I usually don't wear during the summer, but I have to admit that it works.

My Opinion: 
Vendanges is a beautiful and very wearable lipstick that you can use in the summer as well as in the fall and winter. Vendanges is a lipstick that I think is going to look great on a lot of different skin tones because of how sheer it is. You can apply it with a light hand for just a wash of color or you can build it up and make it look darker, it is all about your personal preference.

Overall, I think Vendanges is a beautiful lipstick. If you are into deeper lipsticks, I highly recommend that you check this one out. I will definitely be wearing this lipstick in the summer as well as fall and winter :)
