Please say hello to NARS, Hot Vodoo, a semi-matte described as a molten copper, frost
Here's a picture I took of it with my other recent go-to NARS item, South Beach (shimmering apricot) multiple.

On my lips without an additives: Lip pencil or gloss
And here it is with MAC Chestnut Lip Pencil (a rediscovered old favorite!) and NARS Sweet Revenge gloss (pink grapefruit)
After many years and seasons of wearing nude pink/beige, this is a refreshing look for me. It really helps define my lips. I also like wearing this with a defined eye (smoky brown or gold shadow w/black liner) and a coral blush (Gilda, of course).
Like all NARS lipsticks I have encountered in the past, this does not disrupt my uber sensitve lips and it has a staying power of up to 2.5 - 3 hrs, depending how much you are drinking while wearing and intensity of color. The scent (or lack of) has been described either plastic to herbal. Scents are so subjective, aren't they? All I know is that it really doesn't bother me none as long as they keep my lips smooth during continuous wear.
This is part of the NARS permanent collection. Why haven't I found this sooner? I guess I was too busy trying to hoard all the sheer pink, beige glosses I could get my grubby paws on!
