Perfect orange-red, good lasting power, fades evenly. Doesn’t dry out your lips. Does bleed a little if you don’t line carefully.

A fiery red-orange matte that is incredibly flattering despite my muted coloring. Normally I can't pull off super bright lipsticks but this is one of the exceptions. It lasts hours and hours even on a compulsive lip licker like me, and although it is drying, it's no more than should be expected for a matte. This is a high quality lipstick for sure. I won't repurchase because it was …Read more

A perfect lipstick. Bright orange-red but perfectly balanced. Most of the original Nars lipsticks, especially the semi-mattes, are flawless. I have Heat Wave, Funny Face, Jungle Red, Niagara, Senorita, and they're among my absolute faves, to the point where I'm like "how did they do this" whenever I wear them.

Back to Heat Wave. It's just stunning, a …

MUA Top Picks - you've done it again. This lipstick is incredible. In the tube, it looked a bit more orange/coral that I usually like, but I saw a blogger wearing it blotted lightly on her lips over lip balm and it looked so nice I had to try it. It looks amazing worn this way! It is the cherry popsicle-pink stain I've been searching high and low for for years. It's just so …Read more

This is probably my favourite red lipstick of all time, I literally panic whenever I can't find it. I would describe the colour as a punky red. It is bright and punchy, and it's definitely on the orange side, but it has a hint of pink, so the overall effect is not what you get from a normal orange red (for example, for me that means the pale skin orange lips trend look, or the luscious …Read more

OK, short of writing the same review - see my 'cut-n-paste' review below, which I had written for another colour 'Jungle Red'.

I've now acquired 'Heat Wave' and dare I say that I really cannot decide which I will repurchase when I'm done with either colour.

Let's just say i find Jungle Red beautiful, but I find it a tad too dark …

This is an incredibly flattering orange/fiery red color that I was surprised actually looked good on. It's true to the Nars semi-matte lipstick formula, goes on smooth and stays on relatively well. I usually pair with Urban Decay Ultimate Ozone Multipurpose Primer Pencil so it stays put a little better, but it does dull the color a tiny bit. One application usually lasts until lunch, then …Read more

This was too orangey with my olive skin, but it is a beautiful matte color and looked great on my friend (which is why it still got 4 lippies).

confession: I read that Jenna Lyons (J. Crew creative director) wears this shade. I would have never looked at it - it's way outside my usual comfort zone -and as I get older, I shy away from strong matte lipsticks, b/c they can be aging. The HG lipstick must look great when you have NO OTHER makeup on - that's the test. I put this on and bangpow! instant fabulous.
I'm fair …

This should have been the lipstick that started my obsession with NARS semi-matte lipsticks. It has so many raves in magazines and blogs! Unfortunately, this shade was always out of stock in my country (PHL), so in frustration, I picked up another red in the range (Jungle Red), and ended up completely falling in love with it. But of course I still needed to see and experience what the hype is …Read more
