Honestly, I bought this lipstick mostly because of the name- I was in French riviera and I thought it would make a nice souvenir, because BB (not as in namesake creams, but as in Madmoiselle Bardot). Yeah, I also bought it because I am always on a quest for a new, perfect nude lipstick, I only wear matte formulas and Nars has never been a dissappointment so far.
Turns out- omen est nomen indeed, as it is absolutely stunning! Creamy, rich, which equals "matte but not drying" holy grale, perfect peachy pinky nude that complements smoky kohl-ed eyes (hey, I am living out my BB fantasies here!) like a dream. Subtle color that lights up the entire face- it is exactly what I was looking for all these years. It is amazing how all nude lipsticks looks very similar, often almost the same in the tube, yet many of them just make you look dead (in my case- the entire range of Mac nude matte lipsticks; I once dedicated a good portion of an afternoon to try them all, always ending up as a Corpse Bride stand-in), or "lipless". This thing rocks- it is subtle, yet warm and sexy.
I also love the packaging- a solid black metal matte tube with very handy magnet- a nice touch, Nars!
I've been wearing it every day since I bought it a week ago and see myself spending the rest of the summer with the peachy nude Brugitte pout. It is expensive, but I will definitely buy it again... and again.
