A color I use all week, always adds color to my other lighter pink lipsticks. I layer this on top and instant berry pop, its semi sheer so perfect you cant see they are layered. On its own its a berry mauve color, definetly not MLBB on me, much darker than my own lip color. Im a NC25 light fair with dark blonde hair.

Love the finish, no taste and lightweight.

NARS could update the boring packaging!

Very sheer lilac-mauve with little to no shimmer. A very MLBB shade if your lips are a pale blue pink, as mine are, but this lipstick makes them just a tad more lilac. Very wearable. Very soft and moist on lips. Not very long lasting at all. No smell or taste.

This is my HG lipstick! It's basically a shade darker than my normal lip color, and it looks beautiful both dressed up and for everyday wear. The texture is a little dry, but I find that gives it staying power and I simply layer lip gloss over it if I need a bit more moisture. The price is a bit steep, but I'm willing to pay for a product that performs this well.

This is a great everyday lipstick for fall. It is a sheer cool-toned berry shade. Has an unexpected lavender scent. This replaced my previous go-to which was Revlon Berry Smoothie (was never crazy about the shimmer in that).
I'm NW10, BTW

MAC's Laugh a Lot (LE) was one of my all time favourite lipsticks and I'd read that Damage was a close dupe. While it's different in colour (not a lot but certainly noticeable), I absolutely LOVE this lipstick and think I've found another HG lipstick. This was my first (and so far, only) Nars lipstick purchase and do I ever love it. The texture is so cream and soothing. The wear isn't "the best" but it does seem to wear longer and better than Laugh a Lot. Now that I've found this beauty, I'm not so concerned about using up the last of my stash of "Laugh a Lot". A bit pricey in Canada but this is just a beautiful lipstick on all counts.

A perfect fleshly dark pink, the ultimate lips but better, would be universally flattering and wearable. Despite being 'sheer', it is silky and tenacious, moisturising; a Nars classic with the sexy edge that the brand does to perfection.

On the advice of my MUA homies, this was my first-ever NARS purchase. :) I now have a blush (Deep Throat) and a second lippie in Shrinagar. I was going for a tinted moisturizer but they were out of my color. :( I'm in love with their products and Damage. This color is a perfect daily for me. Plus, it's so smooth and moisturizing.

I'm not sure why this color is described as Grape on the Sephora site, because to me it looks like a true, blue-toned pink with no orange in it which I love. It's gorgeous on and I've worn it almost every day this summer. Definite repurchase if I run out!

I really love this color, it looks so dark and boring in the tube, but is really gorgeous once applied. It really is MLBB. A sheer, berry color. For reference I am NC35 with yellow undertones, and my lips are very pigmented. My only gripe with this lippie is that it is super expensive,but until I find something cheaper and comparable, I will repurchase.

Damage is one of my favorite NARS lipsticks -- it's a really wearable, sheer (but buildable) cool-toned plum shade. It works really well with my fair complexion (NW5-10; NARS Siberia), and it's a great every day shade -- perfect for work. Since Damage is part of the Sheer series, it is not as drying as some of the Semi-Matte shades are.
