I like the color of this--it's a VERY bright pink, and a nice alternative to a classic red, but I absolutely hate the texture. It's super drying, like most NARS lipsticks, and I'd prefer something more moisturizing.
I, too, bought this color because Troy Jensen used this on Kim Kardashian for a georgous bright pink pout. Before this, I never would have tried it since I have a light to medium yellow toned complexion and about 4 years ago Funny Face was my staple.
This is definately the color to wear when you want to look girly and flirty and want your lips to stand out. For those that love the color, but do not like Nars formulations because of texture/smell, I found that the MUFE Rouge Artist Intense lipsticks in shade 36 is a perfect match for color/tone. I tried many different pinks at Sephora to find a match and most were a hair darker or pinker/redder etc, but 36 was definately a great match.
Love this color! =) No regrets! It's a bit pricey, but will last a long time. I love pink lipsticks and I own a lot, but this one tops my list. The color is highly pigmented, lively and bright, but still very wearable for daytime. I will always have this lipstick in my makeup bag.
Beautiful colour.. fell in love the moment I tried it in Sephora. It is a vibrant pink that brightens up my complexion. A nice alternative to red lipstick. It is also long lasting. Better than MAC's Pink Nouveau. Worth every penny in my opinion (33 cdn here in BC)!
i love love love love love love this color! its so wearable, yet vibrant and bold. it lasts absolutely forever, even through drinking and light eating. HG bold lip color
I gave it 4 lippies, because it is very drying - you definitely need to moisturize your lips well before and after wearing this. I love to wear this in the summer with a classic black sheath dress for dinner (rather than MAC Russian Red, which I wear day and night during winter) and a thin line of liquid eyeliner. This is definitely for someone who doesn't mind extra attention, though! I don't mind wearind dramatic color during daytime, but this is one lipstick I reserve for evening. The under color is very blue-toned, so I thought it may not work with my yellow-toned East Asian skin, but it works - maybe because I'm so pale or maybe because this is such a fab dark, hot pink!
Schiap is a very bright semi-matte hot pink lipstick. I find it is the perfect color for the summer, brightens my complexion and jut makes me look fresh and awake. On it's own it's a bit too bright for daytime for myself but I find if I add a touch of MAC's Perennial High Style (from their Liberty of London collection) on top it just softens the color without detracting from the beauty of the shade. Best to keep your blush and eye makeup neutral since this is such a strong shade but I will definitely be repurchasing this lipstick.
Color: bright, beautiful pink (sephora lists it as a "semi matte shocking pink"
packaging: love the matte finish, same style as other NARS cosmetics. simple, sleek, cute
formula: this was my first NARS lipstick and .. it had a weird smell to it (maybe this is their regular lipstick smell, without any fruity/candy scent?) it wasn't TOO strong, but I wasn't a fan. Also, I know this was a matte lipstick but I found it quite drying to the point where it was difficult to apply, almost. I usually wore this with a gloss on top (too dry lips? no way!) , which made my lips look gorgeous :D
NARS lipsticks are .12oz but it looked smaller than other lipsticks..
end result: I returned it because it was $24 (compared to MAC $14) and I felt that I shouldn't keep it if I wasn't completely (or at least closer to it) satisfied with it.
too bad, it was one of my more favorite eye-searing bright pinks :( .
Great perennial hot pink - it's been around a few seasons and stays very fresh and current. I'm NW25, brunette and just grew my hair out and cut bangs...so I've been gravitating toward stronger lip colors lately to make my face pop a little.
This is great with either very neutral eye or black liner/mascara. It's a Nars matte so a little dry: do a lip balm before and then Mac prep & prime protective undercoat so you don't dry out and also so it lasts. (And it lasts.) Nice.
I am absolutely in love with this lipstick! It's a bright neon barbie pink on me- definitely something I would wear to stand out. I wear it quite often, day and night. Since I have dark hair and medium colouring (NC30) it goes with both, day and night looks. I can wear this with a silver or grey smokey eye or a neutral look and both will be dramatic enough to stand out without looking trashy. It's like my alternative to a red lip. Its semi matte texture is not drying on my lips and stays on hours without end. I've worn it the whole day without having to touch up! The packaging is alright, there's nothing really special about it. It's not cheap considering how often I wear it but it was worth every penny :)
