NARS Lipstick All-Star Shades

Lately, it seems every time I compliment someone on their lipstick, it turns out to be NARS.  Not surprisingly because the man behind NARS cosmetics built his brand off 12 lipsticks, initially sold in Barneys.  And so I was off on the hunt for my perfect, bright NARS lipstick.  The contenders were:

  • Heat Wave: a semi-matte, orangey red
  • Jungle Red: a semi-matte, bright red with slightly more blue undertones
  • Funny Face: semi-matte, true fuchsia

The semi-matte finish has the perfect shine that wears into a more matte, stained look. But the color stays true: Nars Lipsticks are enriched with vitamin E to increase wearability and keep true color intact. I definitely get a solid four hours of wear out of an application. The creamy formula is insanely pigmented.

Honestly, I love them all. But Jungle Red looks best on me. If you try these shades out, I would love to know what looks best on you. If you love a nude lip, check this out.
