FOTD featuring NARS Schiap

I know I just posted about Schiap a few days ago, but I wanted to show how I managed to make it wearable for a day in the office. You can see my swatch of it here.

As I mentioned in my last post, this color is definitely vibrant. I don’t usually do anything crazy with my eyes at work, but I will wear a bright lip if I keep the rest of my makeup fairly neutral. That said, I was still nervous about how my coworkers would react to Schiap. I could have dabbed it on for a sheerer look, but I felt like that was cheating, so here I am with full-on Schiap.

I loved this FOTD. I wore it with black pants, a black printed top, and a black sweater so the lipstick could really be the star. Nobody at work mentioned my super bright lips, so they were clearly unfazed by it. We went out for dinner after work for my dad’s birthday so this was perfect for a night out as well.
In addition to its surprising wearability, Schiap also had great lasting power. I was concerned that it would dry out my lips given that it’s a semi-matte, but I didn’t have any issues with it at all. The photo above is after 10 hours, although I did reapply after lunch. Even more shocking is the lack of staining I experienced. Sometimes I like when a lipstick stains as it prolongs the wear time of the product, but it’s nice to have a bright lipstick that isn’t going to stick around the next day (I’m looking at you, MAC Rebel!).
How would you wear NARS Schiap? Would you consider it for a day at the office?
