I've been drawn to this color for literally years, but had silly thoughts like, "Oh, but I can't do red. I'm not exotic enough for a color called Afghan Red." If only I'd read the reviews! I'm...

I got this rec when I posted on the Makeup Board asking for wearable red suggestions. I read reviews of this one and when I swiped it at Sephora, it didn’t look red to me! But then I tried on some...

I was browsing in Sephora and saw a gorgeous shade among the testers. When I picked it up to check it out (I was sure it had to have been a NARS lipstick I'd owned before), I was astonished to see...

Gorgeous! It's such a departure from just a red, super chic on its own with nothing else. As usual, the NARS texture and pigmentation is impossible to beat. I've recommended it to fair skinned...

Holyfreakingsht. This lipstick is one of my all time favorites. On my NC20 skin it brings my face to life, giving me a very polished look even though I wake up looking like a troll doll. It...

Afghan Red caught me off guard and frankly changed the way I am starting to look at lipsticks. Let me start with the color. It is nothing you haven't seen before, a really pretty garnet berry...

I can't say enough about NARS lipstick -- it's hard not to consider it the gold standard. Smooth application that doesn't smudge, feather or wear off. Beautiful, complex, smart shades. Afghan Red...

I love this colour! It is a gorgeous fall colour. Heck I might even be wearing it after that. It has become my signature colour. It has vitamin E built in, I often get dry lips especially in...

I can't believe how beautiful this colour is! I had tried a couple of Nars lipsticks and the dry texture and the look on my lips had put me off. I wanted a lovely semi-vamp shade for Spring and...

STUNNING GORGEOUS COLOR It's a deep rich garnet raspberry. It's vibrant but not distracting. It's unique yet classic. It's very flattering and really does make my teeth look whiter. It goes very...
