nars train bleu

A woman who I did not know, at the fancy Beefsteak fundraiser, told me never to wear my powerful witch lipstick color ( NARS Train Bleu). She said I was too pale to “pull it off”. An ex-friend of mine told me that I should stop smoking because it was creating lines in my face that made me look old. The unwarranted, hurtful opinions of unhappy bitches are the small ways women make other women feel less than. Drunk, sober, friend, stranger, this behavior is inexcusable. In retaliation, this is now my SIGNATURE color. I also tracked down her email and sent her this.  Please steal this and reuse the next time you get told by another woman that your fashion/food/makeup choices are wrong. 


Hi {NAME},

I met you at BeefSteak on Saturday. You were a little drunk, so let me refresh your memory -  I’m the person you told not to wear the lipstick I had on. It’s NARS Train Bleu, and you told me it was too dark for my skin.

Look, it’s just not ok to do this to other women. We all have different opinions of what looks good and what doesn’t, and it just does nothing but make other women feel bad about their choices to insert your opinions. It’s not your duty or job and it’s not helpful - it’s always hurtful.

Hollywood is hard enough for women, and it has been my goal as I’ve become more successful to help other women and I hope you’ll hop over to the “build up” side of Hollywood instead of the “tear down.”

It feels way better.

Oh, and NARS is sending me a bunch of Train Bleu and I’ll be giving it out to anyone who likes it. Hope it’s not your nightmare to see a bunch of translucent Irish bitches in dark lipstick.

Intense highlight / contour on my friend, Karen!

No filter. Taken with my Sony nex-6 & a ring light from Amazon. I know this looks like a lot of makeup, but after the blending & setting process, it sheers down a lot and ends up feeling super light but still looks flawless!

Hi! Do you happen to know a more affordable dupe for NARS' Train Bleu? I love the color, but I can't seem to find the shade in stores near me, and I'd much rather buy a similar color from a drugstore brand. Thanks!

You might have to adjust the color a bit using a darker lip liner or mixing a dark purple lipstick and a little bit of red lipstick to get an exact color but i’ll list some close alternatives! :)
