The covetable smokey eye is one of my favorite looks to rock for a night out.  All that smokiness and come hither vibes...I'm just shocked Ryan Gosling hasn't knocked on my door yet.  But as alluring as a smokey eye can be, it can be tough to find the perfect lip pairing.  You want to go nude, but not too nude and you want something subtle because we all know a bright lip with a smokey eye can look clownish...not a good look on anyone.  Well I am pleased to announce the hunt is over and I am here to share with you the perfect lip color to pair with a smokey eye.  Enter NARS lipgloss in Striptease.  This peachy nude beauty has subtle gold shimmer and looks just stunning on the lips.  It seriously pairs so well with a smokey eye, especially for us fairer skinned gals.  And besides the color, the formula of this gloss is a dream.  NARS re-formulated their lip glosses last year and the new formulation offers gorgeous shine that isn't sticky, long lasting color, great pigmentation, and a formula that won't dry out the lips.  (Some of my other favorite shades in the range are Priscilla, Super Orgasm, and Salamanca.)  These glosses can be purchased at Sephora and most major department stores and retail for $26 a piece.  On the pricier side I know, but to me the quality and pigmentation of these glosses is worth the money.  I know for me, being so fair with pink undertones, it has been so hard to find a great nude that doesn't wash me out and I couldn't wait to share my find with all of you.  I hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful and that everyone has an amazing weekend and a great Easter if you celebrate!  I will be spending the weekend with a girlfriend in Sarasota and can seriously not wait.  Ahh, I can see it now on the beach getting lost in a good book and soaking up those rays.  Hopefully come Monday I will be a bronzed goddess!  Hey, this pale Irish girl can dream.
