Today I’m featuring one of my favourite lipsticks of all time: Schiap by NARS. Pronounced “skap,” and named for the Italian fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli (whose signature colour was hot pink), it’s a beautiful blue-based, semi-matte pink. While it’s certainly bright, I find it’s actually a pretty wearable colour. It seems to go with most of my clothes (I especially love it with neutrals — think black, white, navy, grey, and camel), and the blue tones make teeth look nice and white.
