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 fairly pale and cool toned, and this color is enlivening without being brazen. It brings out the green in my eyes better than all manner of purple eyeliners. Great for …Read more

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 traditional reds and they just looked hideous on me. Back to this one and tried on....beautiful. Per other reviews, this isn’t like any other color I’ve seen and wears much more red than you might think …Read more

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 that it was Afghan Red. Why? It looks nothing like the posted photo, and I expected Afghan Red to be ... well, red. It isn't. It's more of a deep rose, but that description is woefully …Read more

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 people as well as olive and darker complexions and it GLOWS on everyone.

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 comes off as a muted red with a hint of berry on my pigmented lips. Creamy, pigmented and doesn't suck the life out of my already chap-tastic prone lips. It lasts for a fairly decent amount of …

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 type shade...kind of deep raspberry but not as much pink as that brings to mind. However this shade is done in a way where even the most fearful of bolder shades can wear this. I am nw20, deep …Read more

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 is by far one of my favorite colors of theirs: it's a standout. Not too dark, but deep and bold and oh-so-elegant. It's a rich, blue-based red, the kind that tends to complement …Read more

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 this weather. It lasts me hours, even after meals it is still on my lips. My skin colour is stromboli in Nars, and it just looks gorgeous on me.

It doesn't have a matte look, it …

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 decided to give it a go and I am in love. The texture is smooth, it looks gorgeous on my lips. It doesn't feel dry to me.
I was afraid the colour might be too mauve and look a bit drab …

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 well with my coloring. The only problem is it's a bit dry but I put a little aquaphor on top to help. Attached is a picture of me wearing it …
