I've bought a few red lipsticks, but so far none compare to this! My preference for the perfect red lip is a red that's bright - but not overly bright; orange undertone (instead of blue) and matte. Jungle red ticks all the boxes! I think it makes a cute AND sexy red. The only 2 things I have to complain about is the amout of product that you get. To me, you don't get as much product as other lipsticks - the bullet is slightly shorter and it does dry out my lips even though I put a lip balm before I apply this, as well as on top after application. Other than that, staying power is good, it lasted a few hours after eating a meal (although I was being careful), and it fades evenly which is another plus. Will be buying this again!!!
I've been looking for a red lipstick that I can wear both for special occasions and for normal, every-day wear, and this is it. The color is an orange-ish scarlet and is not too bold but not too dull...it's just right, and it's lovely. It did not dry up my lips, and I could wear balm underneath it. It lasted about 6-8 hours with minimal fading, and I was able to eat a meal, have a snack, and even shower, and it was still mostly there, but it came off easily when I needed it to. I'm so glad I discovered this lipstick!
This is my "office" red because it's not very bright or bold compared to blue-based reds. It looks a bid orange-y on me which is fine because it looks good with my warm yellow undertone. I love the texture of NARS lipsticks, it feels very luxurious.
This is warm red with a satin finish. Can be swiped on over balm for a red stain, or more carefully applied with a brush for a classic look. I'm a warm-toned, pale-skinned sort, but don't find this an alarming, loud red at all. I have no problem wearing this in the day.
I am pale (117 in MUFE HD) and most red look garish on me, they either look blue and clown like or orange and radioactive. This is perfect. It has a coral-ish base, which makes it soft instead of harsh. It looks like a true red on me, but it doesn't overpower my face. My HG red. I'm on my 2nd tube.
I love this lipstick! Especially if you will be shopping all day and would like your lips to be lovely all day long through kisses, snacks etc! This is the one I love to wear. My wife borrows it all the time and she loves it too! Definitely one of the best red lipsticks around!
I've been craving the HOT RED lips lately and purchased the set of l/s, n/p and l/l. I'm in love. This l/s does not dry me out b/c I put my chapstick on prior to using. I apply carefully and do my plucker finger trick b/c it's very pigmented and I don't want it to end up all over my face and teeth.
NARS is has become my favorite MU line thus far.
imo, THE greatest lipstick. i am a mac girl forever & always, but this product's color, staying power, packaging, etc trumps ALL other lipsticks. lifelong user & advocate! <3 continued >>
If you are tan/olive skin tone and want to rock a sexy red, this is the one u need to have. WONDERFUL product, a little bit dry, but I prep my lips before I use any dark l/s shade. I exfoliate with a soft toothbrush and apply lip balm and let my lips absorve it, I line my lips with reversible lip liner then I apply l/s and WOOALA!!! it lasted all morning, no bleeding at all ;-) when retouching I reapply balm, lip liner and l/s.
I will recommend this to anyone that loves a perfect sexy red lips and don't mind to take a little time to prepare their lips or have already smooth lips.
Jungle Red is my perfect red. Just putting this on completely brightens up my face, and I can't stop smiling!
No need to put on much other makeup with this. I curl my lashes, put on some Diorshow and voila-- instantly awake.
I recommend getting the Jungle Red lipliner, and if your lips have any pigment, putting a bit of foundation on them to even out first.
This red is gorgeous!
