Product Review: NARS Lipstick

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: NARS
Name: Lipstick
Size: 0.12 oz / 3.4 g
Price: approximately $24 USD

Shade Tried: Honolulu Honey (satin)

This is my first NARS product review and I'm really excited to be able to try this popular brand.

Their lipsticks come in 3 different formulas:

- Satin: moist, longwearing lipstick containing micro-bubble spheres to continually release lip conditioners which yield creamy, silky color that wears for hours.
- Semi-Matte: a highly pigmented matte, non-drying formula that provides a long-wearing, full-bodied, velvety finish.
- Sheer: long-lasting colour pigments have been suspended in this translucent formula to provide a sheer, natural tint to the lips.

Nourishing and Non-drying, with Vitamin E.

I had a lot of trouble picking out a shade to try because there were so many great colours. I finally chose Honolulu Honey because I'm still searching for that perfect nude lipstick.

To Purr About:
- stunning natural nude shade
- long-lasting shade but isn't drying
- doesn't dry out my lips
- full, rich colour
- the lipstick tube has a slightly rubbery feeling, which is kind of nice and different

Claws Out:
- although it's a "satin" finish, I find it slightly matte

Final Comments:
I have found my perfect nude lipstick. The moment I put this on my lips I was in love. The shade is beige, but not dull or flat and goes well with my tanned Asian skin. The lipstick is pretty moisturizing and goes on easily, but has a slightly matte finish, which I love.

I have fallen in love with this lipstick and can't wait to try out other NARS products!
