I am still playing around with my NARS gift palette and I am loving the selection of reds that are included (all permanent): Red Lizard, Fire Down Below (both semi-matte) and today's featured color Manhunt (sheer).

(top row - Baby Doll lacquer, Red Lizard - bottom: Manhunt, Fire Down Below)

This is a poppy red and frankly, I can see myself using this throughout the year. In the palette it looks bright tomato red but it goes on sheer and lovely.

It's like a cherry stain - like a cherry tomato stain actually. I have a fondness for cherry glosses and stains. Since it's a sheer finish, don't expect long last wear time. I reapplied after my 2 cups of morning coffee (yes, 2) but it does leave a really nice stain on the lips - no unattractive red lip lines in the crevices. If I'd have to guess, I'd say that I got a good 2 1/2 hours of wear time. I applied a little before 6:30 AM and reapplied again around 8:45 AM after eating breakfast.

I am really pleased with this red and I can't wait to try out the other two. I even like the Baby Doll lip lacquer - not only is it on the thick side but it's also a baby pink that works well on top of the reds!

  1. You look and smell line fineness. I want that feeling!

  2. Ha - Bootch - I'm sure regular Yoga sessions can fix that!
