NARS Bilbao Lipstick Swatches and Review - Spring 2012

With all of Francois NARS' Collections, I love how each piece has a story behind the inspiration.  It's not just a NAME.  Bilbao Lipstick from Spring 2012 is "...named for the
Basque region of Spain, which has been revitalized by the Frank Gehry–designed
Guggenheim Museum."

The lipsticks having a story make them more interesting.  Like you're wearing a piece of history rather than just a color on your lips.






Bilbao (shimmering topaz, $24.00) is a rosy nude, semi-frosty lipstick.  The shimmer is extremely subtle.  While this lipstick isn't super moisturizing, it doesn't dry out your lips either (it's listed as a Satin formula under their website).  The shade is something I normally gravitate towards, because it can be worn neutrally or with a smokier look.

Bilbao is great to wear alone (as shown above) or with a coordinating gloss (try NARS Como Larger Than Life Lip Gloss!).

This looks like quite a wearable nude shade! I find nudes hard to wear but this one certainly looks do-able for me. I like that there's a subtle shimmer to it, as well. :)
