Rated 4.3 out of 5 stars
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.

Beautiful but not nap approved
Lonemom0406 from Alfred Maine
I love the color and application. Found out that it does smear a little with mask use and smears alot with a nap.

The perfect lip pigment. Works very well with masks. I'll buy more.
DINDY from BOSTON, MA
I am a total lipstick fiend and very particular. I saw this demonstrated on a Nars web event and was encouraged to buy it. I was worried it would be a sticky gloss, not last, or simply creep into lip edges. It does not of these things. It has staying power and looks very polished.

This lipstick goes on smithy and has a vibrant, beautiful color. It does last for 8 hours without cracking or clumping on the lips. However, the color transfers to everything. When taking a sip of a drink, the glass has a red imprint. When eating, the lipstick smeared outside the lip. When giving my husband a quick peck, he had red lips left behind. For these reasons, this is not an going out or long event lipstick. It would be great for work from home Zoom calls or sorter events where you won't be eating or drinking much.
This is my new favorite color!!!

A little goes a long way
GhalzarHime from Mishawaka, Indiana
I usually use Stila liquid lipstick but wanted to try something new so I wore this over to my in-laws for Thanksgiving! It didn't budge at all! I had two plates of food, wine, kissing my husband and did plenty of talking. It still looked beautiful by the time I was getting ready for bed and had to take it off!!
The color is amazing

Great pigmentation and lasts.
Dark too dark
MarMar from undisclosed
The color on the web is totally different of the real lipstick that is why I returned it. It was too dark. Besides that has great package.

Best lipstick ever, holds all day and doesnt smudge!!
Best Matte Lipstick
Tashina M from Apple Valley CA
I have American Woman, Rock With Me, Under My Thumb and Starwoman. I love every one of them. They are the best matte formula I've tried. The colors are amazing. American woman is such a pretty neutral pink nude color. They wear for a long time. The applicator is perfect for coating your whole lip and the getting the precise edges. If you like Fenty Uncuffed this is almost the exact same color but it is less runny and the applicator is way better.
ELLEMARIA from St. Louis
This is the best liquid matte formula! And I have tried every brand out there. Not drying at all, but still remains matte.
Stands up well to mask wear
JulesT from NY
Very solid matte color. Does well under a mask, though needs a touch up after wearing a mask for a few hours. Put it on clean lips, (without pre-moisturizing) otherwise it won't dry properly. Love this pigment. Lasts all day.
The PERFECT red lip!!!💋
XrayTray from Whitesburg, Ky
This formula is the most comfortable matte liquid lipstick I have ever tried. It didn't dry out my lips and stayed on and true for 10 hours!!!! Even after eating and drinking only the center of my lips needed a slight touch up. The wand has a pointed precision tip so no liner is needed. This color has a slight blue tone so if you are fair it will make your teeth look pearly white. Also, it didn't bleed out into the fine lines near my lips. So glad I purchased❤️
Best Matte Lip Out There
anonymous from Texas
Starwoman is the best red I have ever bought. The color is stunning on all skin tones and the staying power of these matte liquid lip is like no other. It does not come off and does not flake. Keeps a powdered look all night.
Lightweight and comfortable
Flamingo from Washington
So comfortable to wear! Not drying and not crumbly. It's like I'm not wearing anything on my lips. Transfer proof but sadly not greasy food proof. They need to continue to come out with more colours! Honestly, the best liquid lipstick in the prestige brand category.
Brenda from Houston
Little transferring, beautiful color

This product lasts all day, even when wearing mask periodically throughout day!

I have used this lip stain for several years now. I wear it all the time. It's long lasting, matte finish and not drying.
Smudges with Mask
anonymous from undisclosed
Purchased this "pigment" based on the reviews of a non-smudge lip color. I do like the feel and ease with which it glides on my lips but a bit disappointed when wearing a mask, it does smudge. I had applied it hours before and bought this product specifically for its non smudge reviews, an almost lip stain property. It is a nice product but did not serve my needs.
