  • "If you want good quality lipstick I suggest you get it from NARS not only is it long lasting but it is also very light on your lips. Even though this lipstick is matte I love how it feels on my lips and it looks great every time I apply it especially in pictures!" in 33 reviews
  • "This lipstick is beautiful. It is true to what it says; it's very matte. It has a creamy consistency that will last long on your lips but does not smudge. Worth it." in 24 reviews

I have had this lipstick in 2 colors. I loved one and the other was just ok. The quality was decent but not wonderful. I noticed after awhile that they got a little crusty and hard. Once this happened they were near impossible to use. A disappointing feature for a higher end product.

Lipsticks are seriously the only thing that I will gladly spend more money on than other beauty products because getting a cheap lipstick that you have to keep reapplying or smudges easily, is NOT SEXY at all. Ever since I tried Nars, I've never looked back! I love how the colors are matte and classy and they don't smudge at all. My boyfriend loves it too because he can kiss me when I get all dolled up without me yelling at him for messing up my makeup lol

Very dry and hard to apply (think Mac Ruby Woo) and sticks to any and every dry patch. The color is lovely but in my opinion this lipstick is not worth the money.

NARS is the best place to go for matte lip color. It stays on all day long, until you want to remove it at night with a removal wipe (it is waterproof ). I can eat, drink, kiss, etc. without this lipstick even smearing. Once the matte effect kicks in it leaves your lips feeling dry, but that's how all matte lipsticks are. You can put some gloss over it so it doesn't feel so uncomfortable.

THe color is very pretty. It feels a little odd when you first it put on. And if you put on gloss it will come of easily. Takes a little getting use to but I️ do like it. And they have some great colors

I love this color! Bars has amazing pigments in all their products! The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because although the color is nice and the formula has a nice satin-matte finish, it transfers A LOT! Now that's not to say that the color comes off of your lips. It just shares it with anything else it makes contact with too!

Review for: NARS Pure Matte Lipstick, Valparaiso more...
What can I say...this shade is gorgeous! It looks so good on my medium olive skin and it's so sexy. The formula is smooth, not drying and feels very luxurious on your lips. It wears like a dream throughout the day. I can't get enough of this shade and formula. I wear this for date nights and special occasions and I love the way it makes me feel. Highly recommend!

My loves! This is such a classic color, so why not splurge on it?! It stays true to how matte should be and it doesn't flake or dry your lips out. It has some staying power and was made for goddesses!!!! I do believe in bargains but I also believe a good splurge is well deserved every now and then.
