Nars Mayflower Lipstick

It may look easy to the untrained eye, but when it comes down to the nitty gritty, make up is a damn tricky thing to review. Take Nars Mayflower for instance, a creamy raspberry shade plucked directly from the sizzling 2011 summer collection:

For me, it was love at first swipe. Happily playing at the counter for a few self indulgent moments, it was clear from the word go this masterpiece was coming home with me whether my bank balance liked it or not. Ok, so it doesn't look vaguely interesting in the bullet - or even the swatch for that matter - but there's something about Mayflower, a certain je ne sais quoi if you like, that seems to have got me completely and utterly hooked.

And that's when things start to get a bit tricky...

Mayflower swatched

Why? Because Mayflower looks completely different on everyone. You know that picture of me wearing it on my lips below? Yeah, it's kind of pointless, because I guarantee it won't look anything like that on you. The sheer pigment and glossy finish marry together to provide each and every wearer with a completely unique shade, inevitably creating a perfect 'my lips but better' tone in the process.

Mayflower applied to heavily pigmented lips

Whilst the tiny flecks of silver glitter mightn't be everyone's cup of tea, Mayflower works effortlessly at providing a gorgeous, delicate and subtle effect. The consistency is creamy and hydrating, sitting comfortably on the lips without sinking into cracks or highlighting dry patches. Whilst the staying power is relatively modest, the sheer formula enables the colour to fade without any embarrassing lines, making this ideal for a fuss free make up choice.

It mightn't be the brightest or boldest colour, but it's certainly one of the prettiest - and lets face it, who doesn't love a pretty lip? Versatile with an absolutely cracking formula, here's hoping it transforms into something equally as gorgeous on all.

Nars Mayflower is available from stands worldwide and for £17.50

I bought Mayflower as well but honestly it does not look anywhere near as good on me as it does on you.

omg on you this looks like the strawberry lip color I have been wanting to get, but everything i have tried is either too matt, too opaque, too red, too pink, too cool etc. I will definitely go check this out, thank you! although my lips are definitely not as pigmented:(

Have you ever heard of Clinique's Black Honey Almost Lipstick??? It is supposed to be universally flattering on everyone, while looking different on everyone! I love it!
