Honest reviews


my favorite lipstick

i use this one nearly every day it is amazing and the color is great. Its a sort of a natural tint and it doesnt dry out your lips! I will be buying more colors

pretty in pink!

I really enjoy this matte bright pink lipstick. as I said, it’s bright! so beware, this isn’t a pale subtle pink, it’s definitely a bright popping pink. However, the price is a little high (considering its NARS that’s to be expected) and after wearing it a few hours, since it’s very matted, the color will start to peel off your lips which is pretty annoying so.. 4 stars! 🙂

Loud, gorgeous color – great for going out at night!

This matte lipstick goes on so smoothly and doesn’t dry out my lips as much as other lipsticks. Love it!

Love it!

I love purple and I thought this lipstick was going to be "too much" but I still got it. I was gladly surprised that even though it does have a shiny purple tint it is not super bright purprle so it looks great on my skin. I am light skin but not blond. I recommend it. It is very creamy and it lasts a good amount of time.

Speedy delivery. I love, love, love this color. It is universally flattering. I am a cosmetics junkie & I am especially picky-this delivers all it promises-major staying power!!

I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this lipstick. I have big lips and tanned in complexion and usually lip sticks are either clumpy and gross or make me look like im in drag. This one however went on smooth. No shine but very moist , color is vibrant and amazing yet subtle. You dont need to paste it on and use alot and it feels divine. Def getting more in diff colors.
