  • "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

Great product! Very beautiful colors and very easy to apply. This product is a great matte lip priding and it doesn’t dry out the lips! Which is great because a lot of matte lip products dry out the lips. I got the colors are very pigmented and I would buy this product again!

Good lipstick not great. Fully pigmented and creamy. Main issues are staying power and transfer. Dry formula but very comfortable and creamy. Love the color it's very vampy. I use a lip brush to apply so I can be more accurate. I wear a lip liner with but doesn't require it.

This lip stick goes on so smooth and pretty. It is matte though it only last about 3 hours before getting a crusty texture on the lips, so I would most definitely recommend carrying it with you and moisturizing your lips before.

This lipstick applies so easy and smooth. This is my first time using it and omg for a matte lipstick it was amazing. I thought it would dry out my lip a little after I applied it. It is definitely worth the price. I would definitely recommend this lipstick.

If, like me, you prefer your makeup matte, you should definitely try out the NARS Pure Matte Lipstick. It provided gorgeous color without shine, and has decent staying power (although not through eating or drinking, but that's to be expected.) I picked this up in the shade Tonkin, described as a "cinnamon plum" on it's Sephora product page. I bought it as an everyday, suitable for a conservative workplace color. It adds just enough color to make me look polished, without being too much. Like most matte lipsticks, it can be a little drying, so be sure to exfoliate your lips and apply a rich balm a few minutes before applying. I like to use my wet toothbrush to exfoliate and apply a thing layer of Aquaphor about ten minutes beforehand, and then wipe off the excess right before applying.

It is a rather small lipstick for the price, so maybe not the best choice for budget conscious shoppers.

"My dermatologist recommended it to me, and it works like a charm," says one user. "I have used every lip balm ... on the planet, and I've never found anything that comes close to this stuff. It healed [my lips] in three days flat!" Another reader chimes in to say her "peeling lips" were already healing by the end of her first day of use. "It does an incredibly good job of protecting your lips (and I've tried everything)," says one reviewer. "Chapped and cracked lips are [now] a thing of the past for me."

I am in love with the longevity of this lipstick. It does not wear off easily. It has a creamy texture, and does not feel dry! The color is vibrant. I have a shade of red & it is the best shade of red ever!

I love the color of this product. But it made my lips feel a little dried out. I purchased it at Sephora. It does last a long time but like I said you will need to probably put on Chapstick which kind of wears it out.
