  • "I am a BIG FAN of NARS lipsticks. I have the Semi-Matte Lipstick in 'Fire Down Below'. Very long lasting. I don't think I'll be wearing any other lipstick that's not NARS. Awesome stuff and perfect for everyday use. " in 55 reviews
  • "Have the color Scarlet Empress and I love it. The lipstick has a creamy formula that does not dry out the lips as much as other lipsticks do. High pigmentation and a pretty long staying power. I recommend that you set the lipstick however, just to make sure it stays in place for a longer period of time. All in all, I think this is a great lipstick that is worth its rather expensive price (compared to drugstore lipsticks)." in 39 reviews
  • "I have the Nars lipstick in Dolce Vita! Totally in love with this shade. Where it almost every day! It is really moisturizing and requires little touch up throughout the day. " in 27 reviews

Review for: Jungle Red, Scarlet Empress (rich blue-red - semi matte finish), Shanghai Express, Fire Down Below (blood red - semi matte finish) more...
Love all three of these colors, it goes on my lips smoothly and the product is pigmented. It also does not dry out my lips. I like to put a glossy put a matching glossy color on top sometimes and it looks so good. I bought this from Sephora and I would definitely buy it again. It wouldn't let me add the picture for Fire Down Below cause you can only have three pictures but I love that color too.

I am such matte fan so a semi matte isn't really my holy grail but the quality is definitely great. I actually got this one for my sister but I ended up sharing it with her just because of how great it it, very full. If you ever looking for a lipstick that looks cute af on a napkin next to your number, THIS is it

This lipstick is amazing! I have the color fire down below and it’s the perfect red, orange, brick color without too much blue tone in it. I wear it to go out and it lasts the whole night. It can be a little drying but you have to remember that it’s a matte lipstick.
Review for: Fire Down Below (blood red - semi matte finish) more...
The packaging is great. Very simple yet you feel the great quality. I was satisfied with the shade luckily. The semi matte” fits very well because it’s not too creamy but not to drying. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for new lipsticks!

Review for: Schiap (shocking pink - semi matte finish) more...
I absolutely ADORE this lipstick. It's such a fun punch of bright pink/fuchsia; I can't find a color like this anywhere else! It goes on nice and soft, and it lasts for hours. I usually only need to reapply after meals. As a bonus, the square, matte-black lipstick tube is really chic. I love how the "NARS" logo wraps around the cap. I would definitely recommend NARS Semi Matte Lipstick in Schiap.

Really love this formula very creamy but dries down pretty matte. I would say with the darker color it tends to move around a lot and get into your teeth more often! But I do love NARS products but not so sure I love the dark shade range!

Very pigmented and for a lipstick does last a long time on the lips but occasionally have to re apply but it is still very good and I like the range of colors and is easy to apply it is on the pricier side but is still very worth it having allot of product and nice packaging

I bought this from Sephora. I went in and told the sales associate that I was looking for a red lip. I hadn’t exactly found my color yet and was somewhat nervous about the red lip. She told me that every person who tried on Red Lizard always loves it. She made me a believer because I absolutely love that lipstick. It was about $36 but it had long wear, smudge proof, moisture and looked great for about 8 hours before I went to bed.
