Sometimes its pure fun and little excitement to find that what you bought recently is a big time hit somewhere and most of all you happened to get a dupe without even knowing !!
Jenny Smith, lead makeup artist at NARS, created the look for Dannijo's Jewelry Presentation in which she used Nars Volga Pure Matte Lipstick on Brunette Models.
Here's the pic from Dannijo Jewelry Presentation posted on Instagram recently ~
Now the best part, i own a dupe of this gorgeous dark hue and it is NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Vixen.
Here's pics ~
NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Vixen is pretty much the closest dupe i found to Nars Volga Pure Matte Lipstick, except that Nars is matte and NYX is glossy. This lovely color can be build up by layering more for a much darker hue (i used 2 swipes in pic).
While NYX Jumbo Lip Pencils (currently not available on Nykaa too) cost around 425 INR, Nars Volga Pure Matte Lipstick costs around $26 and not yet available in India. So i guess i am pretty much happy that i got a dupe (atleast) for this gorgeous color that models rocked at Dannijo's Jewelry Presentation.
So do you own NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Vixen yet? Are dark hues your fav?
What do you think of Vixen?
