My last post was about cult and classic lipsticks.  We can all agree NARS Schiap belongs on that list, but did you know I was inadvertently seeking it out for three years?  I had seen a picture of Kim Kardashian (I know, what is with me lately…first contouring and now this) wearing the most perfect shade of pink lips.  At the time I couldn’t find any information on her makeup, but I recently came across the same photo…and info on exactly what artist Troy Jensen used.

A quick search through the wonderful world of the Internet will tell you Kim was wearing NARS Semi Matte Lipstick in Schiap.  A shocking pink that anyone can wear, I certainly didn’t doubt that Troy used it for the look.  But the finish in the photo was clearly glossier and the color a touch deeper.  Enter Hot Wired Lip Lacquer.

A glossy fuchsia with slight blue shift and a nourishing formula, Hot Wired takes Schiap to the next level.

I get a raspberry tone from the Lip Lacquer on my skin and when worn on my lips, they look incredibly full without needing lip liner.

For this look I kept the eyes neutral with taupe shades, went for black liner as in Kim’s picture, and I love the finished look.  Hot Wiring Schiap is my newest addiction and was well worth the wait!
