Good gosh! Another perfect lipstick from NARS! The color says it all - goes on a soft, delicate purple, or can be applied thicker for a deep, goth-chick touch. Perfect shade for a job interview, or a night at the club.

One of the few lipsticks I own. (I seriously do not wear them anymore, so I got rid of almost all of them.) Damage is such a great color. It is described as a "Muted Grape" by the NARS website. I think that is a great description. This is just a shade or two deeper than my natural lipcolor. It looks very natural on me. I love the sheerness of keeps it from having that lipsticky look. I apply a coat of Aquaphor over it and it gives a bit a shine. Would rebuy this again and again. It is my "everyday", Holy Grail lipstick.

Not great but not bad. Will keep but probably wouldn't have purchased if I'd tried it in the store. I am cool toned, green eyes, dark brown hair, light-med. complexion. It's pretty but not amazing enough that I would ever repurchase. It is very dark on me, gives me a Scarlet O'Hara from Gone with The Wind look which is pretty but not my favorite look.

First lipsticks that I actually use. Used to wearing pale, shimmery, pink-y lipglosses, but wanted something with color and the SA recommended this over Dolce Vita for me and I love it!! My lips are quite pigmented alone, and this just adds the best oomph to them, so they're a bit more intense but quite naturally. It's a great way for me to wear color without it being too obvious or "too much." I loveee it!

This is a wonderful mauve berry color that can go pinkish on some people. Nars describes it as muted grape. That can mean so many different things as the color range of "grape" is pretty wide. It is a muted color so that could be why it washes out some people.

I personally loved the color as I don't wear bright colors on lips often. My only problem was the lack of moisture. It applies nicely but not enough moisture to keep the lipstick on my lips. It didn't dry out my lips.
If you want something in a similar color but leaning more towards the berry go for MAC plumful. Almost exact color but it has more berry to it and it's a lustre so plenty of moisture.
I put that I would buy this color again because after all I did like it and would get again if MAC discontinued plumful.
My coloring varies but I am mostly NW25 in MAC and LLL for the foundation chart.

Damage is a lovely pink for summer on my very fair "cool" toned skin. However, one of DHC's pink pallettes offers similar options for less $$$. And, you can buy severl tubes of SPF lipstick at Avon and make your own pallet, which is why I won't be repurchasing.

This is a lovely berry sheer lipstick that works well with my deeply pigmented lips. It's not nearly as dark as it it seems as a stick, and gives a nice non-glossy tint that compliments my olive colouring. It is slightly drying though, so I use a balm underneath if my lips are feeling dry.

I love this. I have fair, yellow-undertoned skin and I recently went from golden-brown highlights to a darker reddish brown hair color. I needed something more intense on my lips and this was gorgeous on me. I worry about my teeth looking yellow and this isn't a problem with this shade, very cool I guess. I'm not sure why I look good in cool colored lipstick when I have warm coloring, but that just seems to be true in genereal. I didn't like Dolce Vita on me at all, so I tried on this one and it's gorgeous.

I swapped for this, but I would've bought this! Damage is a sheer grape-berryish shade. I like this with a cool toned blush. As with all the NARS lipsticks this is packaged very well. The case is very chic and sleek. There is no unpleasant smell or taste to NARS lipsticks which is very nice.

Love this color. I bought it before reading the reviews. It looks very natural with my olive skin, dark hair, and dark eyes. Like my lip color, only slightly oomphed up. I wish it were less expensive, but I'll definitely repurchase, no matter what the cost.
