I was told today by Nordstrom associate that this gorgeous lipstick is being discontinued and that I was lucky she still had a tube. It is an absolutely stunning perfect red. It is perfectly matte, which makes it so sophisticated looking. Amazing coverage and lasts forever.

I am a huge red lipstick fan, so I like this red. It's not a "classic Hollywood red" like red lizzard (which is probably my favourite of the two), but it is a true red and I really like it. Great staying power.

The current lemming for "old Hollywood" continues to Jungle Red. This is matte, very pigmented and last and last so well thru drinking and food. It fades gradually so no need to touch up but its a tab bit dry for my preference. I have to swipe balm on a couple times thru out the day. This is blue based and makes the teeth looks white and pearly... a tad bright for my office so going to use this at night only.

An absolutely stunning red. This is perfect: matte, red (as opposed to pink, orange or brown), long-wearing, and easy to apply and wear. This lipstick does not bleed on me, and fades very nicely. I hardly have to retouch all day, which, considering how lazy I am about re-applying, is fantastic. The NARS quality is phenomenal. My search for the perfect red is over, although I will probably buy the other NARS reds for the fun of them. I also have the lipliner, but I find that the lipliner has a brown undertone of which I am not very fond. I prefer not to use that.

The best red-- and it doesn't turn pink after you put it on. Wears well and is fairly matte, yet moisturizing. Every now and then I can't find it and I panic. I hope Nars never stops making jungle red as I have finally found the perfect red.

The perfect bright retro bombshell red! Intense color, no shimmer but not dull matte. Stays put, and has some moisture but not too greasy. A bit on the bright orange side of red, as opposed to the blue side. My favorite lipstick for a darker, more blue-red lip is Chanel's Shanghai Red. (I'm NC40, Asian.)

This semi-matte red lipstick is my total HG, and I live in fear that they will discontinue it! I am on my 7th tube right now, and I wear it every day with the matching Jungle Red lipliner. I buy them 3 lipsticks and 2 lipliners at the time, and they are not cheap but they ARE worth it! I work in sales, so I need lipstick that doesn't constantly need reapplying, has a color that stays true all day and won't feather; this answers all those criteria. I have very, very fair skin (I am #2 in Giorgio Armani, Shell in Estee Lauder Double Wear, Porcelain Ivory in Laura Mercier), blue eyes, and dark brown hair if that's any indication. This is my very very favorite EVER.

This lipstick is not, as someone here wrote, 'bright red' - on me it's more orange-red, it has a tone of terracotta which I did not expect nor want. Someone also wrote that it makes her teeth sparkling white, but unfortunately it does not do that to my teeth :)
But all and all, it's a nice lipstick and a nice color!
The staying power though is unbelieveable, it lasts almost all day without any touch ups!
One lippie off for not living up to my expectations.

I'm not sure if I would buy this again, I think (besides the color) that it's a little too matte, I wish it was more creamy and shiny.

The chase for the perfekt lipstick continues!

Great formulation, just not the right red for me. Bright orange-red, very matte.

Jungle red has an accompanying lip liner in the same exact shade making the perfect red lip that much easier. This red is blue based and is fairly bright, definitely the classic screen siren red. If you prefer something a little bit more subdued but still very red, try Red Lizard, which I think is infinitely more easy to wear and flatters most skintones, Jungle red will not flatter everyone, but those who it looks good on REALLY look good in it.
