I could just pinch myself for finding NARS Cruising, it's a total stumble upon and perhaps fulfilled my need for impeccable nude lips on the cheap(er).

Cruising comes from my favourite lipstick range within the NARS world of colour -- think Autumn Leaves, Flamenco or Damage. NARS sheer lipstick delivers colour and moisturises* at the very same time. So, why Cruising? This nude pink lippie simply whispered my name and the rest was history :)

If you're after something that's easier on the wallet, Maybelline's Born With It is a slightly pinker version of Cruising; I'm just not a fan of the larger than life shimmer particles. If you can get past that, then you're in like Flint!

The Bagful breakdown:

Total amount for NARS Cruising:

Value for money spent (performance and quality):

  •  7 out of 10 bags – while I do love the colour, Cruising isn't as nearly as moisturising as I would like it to be.
