NARS Lipstick in Tolede: Summer 2013 Collection

Mornin' lovelies! I'm sure many of you have heard about the NARS Summer 2013 Collection by now. It includes eyeshadows, a lipstick, and a few other products. I only picked up the lipstick, Tolede, but judging by how much I love it, I may end up buying the rest of the collection as well!

Tolede is a gorgeous, soft, neutral pink. Perfect for everyday wear, and perfect for just about every skintone.  As you can see from the picture, I've already worn it quite a bit, it goes with almost every eye look I've tried in the last couple of weeks because it's so incredibly versatile.

Despite the neutrality of the color, it is very well pigmented. It shows up fabulously on my lips, and has a slick, non-greasy feel. It's not drying, but not especially moisturizing, either. It has a slight sheen upon application, as you'll see in the next photo, but it dries down to a matte finish as the day goes on. 

Here's a swatch on my lips. As you can see, the color is very natural looking and has a hint of shine. It lasts a good 4-5 hours on me if I don't eat or drink anything, which is fine by me as it's not advertised as a longwear lipstick.

This was my very first NARS lipstick and I was extremely impressed by it. The packaging was gorgeous and expensive looking, the quality of the product was great, and though it is contrary to all the bright lip colors that are in this season, the color is in my opinion perfect for summer looks. I will be wearing it often and since it will be a part of the permanent line, I will be repurchasing.

You can find NARS lipsticks at Sephora or the Nars website for $26 USD. 

Have you tried anything from the NARS Summer Collection?


  1. This is a really pretty color! I've never tried any Nars products sadly.

  2. I really like the look of this lipstick, it's a lovely colour. I love Nars!
