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.

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.

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…

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.

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!
Amborg from Rancho Cucamonga
I got shade Starwoman. It does dry down and smears. What a nightmare! I thought this was a liquid lipstick. Why doesn't it dry down? It was on my teeth and smeared before I even got to my party. Never buying this again.
too liquid it drips
camilav from San Diego
i tested it at the store and it was so so so liquid that the bottle dripped while i was applying and got stains on my shirt, suuuper super difficult to remove. I'm not sure about durability on the lips though
Michelle from Lake Elsinore
This lipstick is absolutely beautiful, the color after it dries is very pigmented. I did noticed it gets on your teeth before it dries, so you want to avoid getting it near in the inside of your lip. Got so many compliments and my boyfriend loved it on me. I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a matte finish similar to the KVD lipsticks.
LipstickLady from Farmingville, long island ny
Hi will you be coming out with a purple?
You have many shades of brown n berry?
Absolutely Luv, but!
YveH from Atlanta
I love this product, the color stays on and looks great! My but is that it is not made to be carried in your purse or make up bag because a lot of the product leaks around the
top of the bottle. Although it doesn't get into my purse or makeup bag, I wish the bottle design was different so that so much product isn't wasted because of the price point.
Bring back London calling please
Monica4444444447777777 from Iowa
It's only color I wore daily no one makes dark mauve purples anymore. It's a shame I really only enjoyed that color cause it wasn't a basic color. I feel all brands sell the same exact shades. So that's why I enjoyed the shade London calling. It lasted very long and been buying for a a while now. So I'm extremely disappointed but hopefully it comes back.
all day wear
Ang from TX
lasts through the day
Gorgeous Color 😍
M from Austin, TX
This is a beautiful shade of matte red lip color. I wish it was long wear and didn't rub off, but I like it so much, I'm ok with having to reapply!
Love this lipstick!
Kathleen from Ohio from undisclosed
Stays on all day and the colors are beautiful!
