Dang, it’s hot right here today…
Like, fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk hot right here today (incidentally, have you ever tried that?).
Or, sweat-until-you-have-a-major-life-revelation hot right here today.
Basically, it’s sticky-back-of-the-knees, crook-of-the-elbows, middle-of-the-booty-cheeks hot right here today (oh, as well as my air conditioner isn’t working).
The only things keeping me from melting into a puddle of sweat are 1) the truth that it’s a dry warm (it DOES make a difference), as well as 2) this tube of NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Lodhi ($26), since it’s viileä.
Kissat ja meikkipaita?
GURL, you’ve most likely seen me wear this satiny coral lipstick on my pout before (I used it on my trip to NOLA). It’s one of my all-time summer faves, as well as I bust it out every year. If I were to listing my top five summertime corals, it would be top three.
The long-running Unsung Heroes series right here on makeup as well as appeal blog features a few of my all-time preferred long-term collection products.
How do I like Lodhi? let me count the ways…
The pencil packaging. one of the long-term collection NARS Satin Lip Pencils, Lodhi is a pigmented, smooth lipstick with a satin finish, as well as the pencil packaging is one of its strengths. A great deal of the time with brights lipsticks, I requirement to utilize an extra lip liner to keep my edges from looking wonky, however since Lodhi already is available in a pencil, I just line the edges with it, as well as then fill in the rest of my lips. So it saves a step.
THAT FORMULA, THO! It’s absolutely on point. The creamy formula glides across my lips (there’s none of that irritating tugging, bah!) however isn’t so soft that it melts in extreme heat. I’ve taken Lodhi with me on summertime trips as much as Redding, California, which gets well into the triple digits (it was 110 there today!!), as well as it has never melted in my purse. The unscented, unflavored formula is likewise moisturizing as well as extremely forgiving of my flaky, textured lips. Plus, it lasts from four to five hours as well as plays well with gloss (try it with NARS Orgasm Gloss sometime).
The intensity! The color is just timid of bright neon — ideal where it needs to be to stay classy, rather than costume-y. however it’s absolutely bold, which indicates that when I wear it I can get away with using less makeup on other parts of my face. This is available in helpful in summer, particularly on freakishly hot days when I don’t want to stack a ton of product on my skin.
I’ll do my brows, apply water resistant mascara, a bit tinted moisturizer as well as a touch of under-eye concealer, then Lodhi, as well as I’ll be set. as well as if you do feel like using something sophisticated on your eyes, Lodhi pairs well with browns, golds, greens, olives, khakis taupes as well as purples. using it with a thick black feline eye as well as well groomed brows is truly pretty, too. extremely vintage, pin-up glam.

Lodhi may be a great choice for you if you’ve been providing matte lips a sneaky side-eye this summertime however haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet. Its satin surface nearly appears like a matte, however since it does have a faint hint of shine, it doesn’t look totally flat.
I hope you autumn in like with Lodhi this summertime (or any type of time of year)! as well as if you do, as well as you feel as much as it, please send me a photo of you using it, or identify me on Instagram.
