High-End Lipstick Birthday Haul

I turned 40 a couple of weeks ago, and then proceeded to have an almost constant migraine. I guess I won't be outgrowing those any time soon. On the positive side, my most generous husband indulged my love of lipstick by treating me to these lovelies for my birthday. I have to say that Nars Audacious lipsticks are the BEST lipsticks I have ever used. Pigment forever. Gorgeous colors. Packaging that is beyond description. For Christmas, Henry gave me Anita - a beautiful antique rose (according to Nars' website). He has watched me panic as I have used it so much that I am already into the "Nars" embossing on the bullet. That is undoubtedly why he escorted me to the Nars section of Sephora on my birthday. How lucky am I? In any case, I was agonizing between Jane and Brigitte when he grabbed both and headed for the register. Again, how lucky am I? (Images are from Nars' website)

Depending on your monitor, I realize that they might look the same, but on my NC15 skin, they are completely different. Did I mention the magnetic caps? These lipsticks are awesome.

But that's not all...Marc Jacobs just released a new line of lipsticks called Le Marc Lip Cremes. Oh. My. Gosh. I don't like them *quite* as much as Nars, but it is darn close. I also ended up with this beauty.

Infamous is a gorgeous deep rose shade. One swipe will seriously last for *hours*. Again, super luxurious magnetic case.

I know some people will think that these gifts are a complete waste of money, but all I can say is that some women like jewelry - I like makeup. I'm lucky enough to have a husband who understands that!
