Most Helpful Positive Review Pigmented and longwearing
I first purchased Light My Fre (bright orange red) and I loved it so much I bought two more more neutral shades (and have my eye one a few more shades). What impressed me about this product is both the applicator and of course the formula. I've had a chance to try many different liquid lipstick formulas and must say that if you enjoy a pigmented, longwearing, matte lipstick you should give this guy a shot.
I have found that for the most flattering outcome, it's important to have hydrated, non-flaky lips (but I would say that's the case for almost all matte lipsticks). One coat is more than enough, otherwise it can feel drying. The amount that is on the wand is enough to cover my entire lips! It took me a minute to get used to the applicator because it's sort of pointed. Once I did, it quickly became my favorite liquid lipstick applicator because I can be precise with it. I don't find that I need to use a lipliner because it's just that precise and the formula doesn't bleed on me.
One thing to note is that the formula is very thin and can actually spill and stain, so please be careful. Another thing is that Nars recommends shaking the bottle before use. I've forgotten to do this a couple times and I think the product separates a little.
One of my colors transfers the teeniest bit after it has set... One quick blot and then it seems to be fully matte/transfer resistant. As with any makeup, oils remove this lip product so eating greasy foods does wear it down. That being said I've always found these guys to last me through an entire work day.
Overall, I'm extremely happy with all the shades I've picked out and would recommend to anyone who loves a lightweight feeling, fully pigmented matte liquid lipstick.
Most Helpful Critical Review I'm giving it a two...
I'm giving it a two stars, I'm in love with the color "dont stop" beautiful color red. I've gotten so many compliments on it. Only down fault is that it does stay as it suppose to. It transfer to pretty much everything on your coffee cup, food etc and it bleeds so I must be checking my lips all the time just so I don't look like the joker from Batman movie.

Long lasting and unbelievably comfortable. I never thought i'd ever find a matte lip color that wouldn't dry up my lips. I stand corrected.
Love the color
CeEee from Woodland Hills, CA
I was a little worried about this. I went to the store to check how the color would look and the texture. I put some on my hand and found it to be runny. Something told me to just get it.
Well I applied it and oh my goodness. It didn't go all over the place and it look great. The color wasn't an orange or a deep burgundy red, this was the perfect red. It stayed in place and don't get me wrong the color did transfer to my fiancés lips. Cleaning off the color didn't stain his lips. So this was great. I love this lip product and will be purchasing more.
Note: as mentioned, reapplying will be needed.
*** This did not dry out my lips ***
I used a lip scrub every night and apply lip balm during the day. Vaseline lip therapy works just as good as higher end lip balm.

Love everything about this lipstick. Color. Staying power. So awesome!
Great matte lip pigment
Grace face from Odessa, TX
First time using and I love it, true matte look, doesn't cling on too much but also doesn't disappear quick when drinking. Would love to buy more colors.
Best lipstick ever!
Lilipawes from Portland, OR
I ordered Starwoman for a my first powerful red lippy. I'm in love! The color is gorgeous, it goes on smooth, and you don't need a lot. It will last a long time, so it's worth the extra upfront. I also have a lip deformity on my cupid's bow from a dog bite and it stays on where I put it and doesn't move. No lip liner needed. It's unbelievable.
Jesprini from New York
This is the exact color I've been looking for! Long lasting, moisturizing yet still matte and no need for lip liner! PERFECTION!

American woman is the exact color I've been searching for!! Long lasting, moisturizing while still being matte. Easily application, no need for Lip liner. PERFECTION!
Sana from Merced
it's a nice lipstick nice formula but the picture is not true to color. I have another red in the same one.. I love the formula and pigment but this just not my color..
Love this long wear matte lipstick! Beautiful colors!
Jess from Wildomar, CA
Stays in place for longtime wear, very minimal touch-ups throughout the day!
Best all day liquid lipstick
Audrey from Portland OR
No mask transfer, survived an entire day wearing my mask after eating and drinking and I never had to reapply. I forgot I even had it on my lips, it feels very velvety even when dried down. I'd say worth the price, 10/10 recommend!
My friend loved it!
ShelStar from EDMOND, OK
I gave this as a gift to a good friend who is a big fan of long wear matte lip products. She loves it! She told me it was the only lipstick she wore the week after Christmas. That says a lot because she is a lipstick queen and always has a perfect lip. She ordered a few other colors for herself. I'm so happy my gift went over so well!
LOVE American Woman!~ ,But watch out if you have lip wrinkle
American Woman is such a pretty shade from TX
First of all, I love the color American Woman. Got introduced to it when Noze wore it in Street Woman fighter. The color is so beautiful and I really liked how it looked in my skin color (something I have trouble with).
But I did have to return it because it makes my wrinkle lines in my lips more visible. :(
Before returning, I did try to search the internet for what I could do to make the lip lines less visible and only limp plumping was recommended *cries*. When I put lip balm on top of it, it smeared my lipstick to my teeth and straws.
I'm still quite sad about the return.
But for anyone who is young, remember to put on SPF in your lips because I am so sad I had to return this lip stain.
Katie_Rose from Melbourne, FL
I recommend application over very hydrated lips or perhaps layering it onto a lip balm or primer of some sort. Rather dry, but not drying to the lips. Gorgeous pigment that certainly lasts for hours, lovely shades!
One rugged lipstick…
LauraLeeB from undisclosed
This photo is the "after," after a 4 hour, 5-course dinner! So comfortable on the lips, and the staying power is simply incredible! I love the bold color, too.
Njam from Chicago
Had been using for more than a year now. It doesn't dry on lips like any other liquid matte lipsticks I have tried on. It actually stays on the whole day.
FIND MY PERFECT NUDE
roseza from VA
The shade Le Freak is the perfect nude for me. It's not too beige not too pink. The formula is also nice and creamy. Not too drying like a liquid lipstick and not like a regular lipstick which doesn't have a long staying power.
love this color
bebeautiful from massachusett
This is my go to color all year round.
Love it, long lasting !
Jan93 from Salinas
I love this formula. It's a bit expensive but worth it. I've tried cheaper matte lipsticks like Maybelline and those did not work for me. This one stays put and long lasting. Love the formula, non-drying
nice color but just ok
brielle from ohio
beautiful color but did not stay. it easily smeared. i
Molly E from Annapolis, MD
Love it! Some drawbacks: hard to remove mistakes like where it smears onto skin and dries out lips. Perfect color!
Staceyp from Boston
This has to be the most comfortable lightweight formula I have ever tried. The color payoff is gorgeous and even. I don't have a bad thing to say.
A lip stain that REALLY stays put!
Ciel from California
Great pigment! and it stays!!
Love the color, but not long lasting
MulberryBlues from TN
I remember using the color "Rock with You" a lot a few years ago. It's still a very lovely color, but I swear I remember that it didn't budge and it actually dried down.
This formula doesn't seem the same to me. It smears off and isn't consistent. I wish it would actually dry down because I miss how it applied and worked a few years ago. It was the entire reason I bought it in the first place. Missing that. :(
Great pigment, but my shade was discontinued!
flame from Kingsland, Georgia
I love this lip pigment, but I am so annoyed NARS discontinued the SPIN ME shade! It was my signature color. Please bring it back.
I LOVE THIS LIPSTICK
Jelli from Las Vegas
I have super dry lips and lipsticks usually start peeling or don't stay, but this one goes on SO smoothly and doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything at all! I always highly recommend it to my friends because it's worth the price point to invest in a lipstick that will actually stay and feel good!
My only qualm is that I wish they would expand their color range!
