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 Great formula but it LEAKS!!!
I love the actual lip formula, however, no matter what I tried (keeping it upright, only in cool conditions, making sure it was securely sealed), it kept leaking all over my handbag and stained it permanently. I returned the product. If NARS will update the container so that it doesn't leak, this is all that I would wear. But until then, I wouldn't recommend it.

This is my favorite NARS products and by far my favorite liquid lip. My go-to shade is Spin Me. Right now it makes little sense putting a full liquid lip while I'm wearing a mask so I mix it with some lip balm and I get a subtle shade. Alone I find the colors highly pigmented and they don't leave my lips dry. Always recommend, just with ULTA carried for shades.
Didn't like the color - was more of a deep purple vs a red/b
Lisa from NOVA
I like this lip product ... just didn't like this color. I returned it and got what I know ... American Woman (dame product bit different color)... and I'm happy!! : )
Spin was not the color that appeared on the color sample picture ... putting it on was more like a deep purple color (not what I wanted).

The absolute best lip product ever made! Long lasting not drying!!
Cordova from New Mexico
So happy to find this color in stock. Only to get home and open the box to see my product had the tester sticker on it!! I cant believe this was on the shelf in a box for sale. You would think with all the pandemic that this would be checked. So disappointed.
Love This Color !

I got this yesterday and wore it today, although the color is more orange red on me, I love it, this stuff has staying power. Love nars.
Transfers really bad
Chelsea from PA
It was the perfect color classic red. I didn't like the application brush as much as some others I tried. Within an hour I realized it had transferred every time I rubbed my face or rested my head on my hand, and gotten all over my face.
Best Matte Pigment Ever!!!
Veggie Grl from Richmond VA
This is my go to red matte lippie.
When I want to feel good about my self during this (stay at home order) I pull out this lippie and I'm able to face my day through my zoom meetings.
Love that this matte does not dry out a lot and I can wear it all day!
Even though it's a little pricey, I keep this matte stocked.
Much darker than virtual try on
EmmaM from undisclosed
The formula is nice, lasts a long time, and has a very nice slight scent. However, the color is much darker than it shows on virtual try on, so I was a bit disappointed.
Nars just stays on !!
Yvonne0406 from Seattle Wa
I bought this as a replacement for another color for another brand , but OMG !! this is far more superior then my other lipstcik , not only does this stay on all day untill you take it off but it does not feather , does not crossover to a mask if your wearing one , and if you eat well if you eat carefully this does not feather not a bit , I buying back ups of my favorites just in case of low stock or out of stock , by the way Im a professional baker , I always like to look amazing and Nars is the makeup that does it !
Waste of money
BASmith from Etown ky
I recently bought this and very disappointed, doesn't last long and cracks. Didn't expect that especially paying almost $30.
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.
Mena from Shreveport, La
I love this lipstick. I purchased it, because of a review Jackie Aina did on the collection. This lipstick lasted 6-7 hours, without me needing to reapply it. I was able to eat and drink with it on, which is a major plus. I cannot wait to buy more shades.
anna from New Jersey, USA
lasts all day and is very opaque. color looks very pretty!
Great color payoff
Alex from Calabazas
Just wish it last longer, it wont make a work shift or last after a meal. Great application, great formula.
Patricia Ann from Michigan
This was much bolder than I expected. I wanted a little more color than the one I had before, but this was a bit too much. I won't be using it.
E Marie from undisclosed
I never write reviews, but this lipstick is amazing. I was looking for a lipstick that wouldn't smudge or get all over my face during my upcoming wedding. I tried it out today for the first time, and I was able to eat and drink without it smudging at all. The color is still vibrant several hours later. Definitely recommend!
loooove. I wish there were more colors.
brittaniG from oh
I bought this over a year ago in the dark purple shade. Stays all day and looks so good. no lip liner needed. Love love love. . I wish there were more colors because this would be the only lip stuff i would ever buy.
NaomiR from Lawton, OK
Beautiful color and it does not leave your lips feeling dry. But it's so liquid-y that it does not dry and it is very easy to make a mistake in application if not careful. It does transfer and stains a little.
Pamela from Lodi ca
My co worker came to work and I loved her lipstick. She let me know the brand and color. I went out and purchased it. It didn't look good on me. I have a lighter complexion. She has a darker skin tone
Cbratpaq from Kentucky
I bought this less than a month ago and after 20 minutes it had already came off.

HORRIBLE!!! put it on and it transfers everywhere. Got everywhere, even after an hour of being on. Wiped it all off and returning ASAP.
