NARS Pure Matte Lipstick
Recommend moisturizer beneath
This glorious NARS matte pink lipstick called "Carthage" is as pretty in person as it
is online. It goes on even more vibrant than one might expect. The only problem is that it is indeed very matte and, therefore, very drying. Next time I wear it I shall use a moisturizing gloss beneath it to keep my lips moist. It is extremely long-lasting color-wise.
I have used other matte lipsticks in the past (mostly Chanel) and I have found this to be better. The color is truly matte and it does not dry my lips out like the Chanel matte lipsticks do. I bought Carthage and it's a beautiful, berry color that's bright but not too bright. It stays on for hours, only slightly losing intensity with wear. It goes on creamy and I don't feel my lips drying out the longer I wear it. I love Chanel, but I think for matte lip color in the future, I'll be going with NARS.
Long lasting and beautiful colors
I purchased this lipstick based on a recommendation in a magazine as I have a difficult time finding something that is longlasting. This is great, i already bought 2 other colors. Just love this product and it is not drying.
I was looking for a bold red that would not be too strong for my fair skin and dark hair. This is a great choice. Color stays on well and does not dry your lips out. NARS is always a best bet for makeup!
