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, vibrant lip colour!!
Jo Baldwin from Litchfield County, CT
I love this lip stain. I wear a mask with a 'window' and it doesn't leave lipstick prints on the plastic. I was also pleasantly surprised at how perfect the color is, since used the computer to pick a color - I didn't see it in person. Perfect match!
Don't do it
Chrissye from Texas
This lipstick was such a beautiful color, but it's performance was lacking. It went on patchy on first swipe, but after a second coat; it was opaque. It felt comfortable to wear too. Note, I didn't have anything else on my lips. 10 minutes after wearing, I noticed that the lipstick started to bleed, and then it seemed to start to melt, and got everywhere. No, don't buy this.
Not what I expected

Did not care for the color. It was too runny.
Lisag from Newark
I love the color of this lipstick. Even the name screams power!
Nery from Clark, NJ
Although a bit pricey for a lip pigment, it's well worth it! It last for hours, and it's silky. It's perfect for a natural look or a natural lippie for bright, popping makeup. American Woman is the color I purchased. It's the color I wore on my wedding day and I wish I had bought it then for touch ups. Add gloss to it for some shine, but it's also an excellent matte choice.

All in all I love it and it's perfect for me
Just what I needed

My first time buying this brand. I was not impressed with the pigment at all. Sadly dissatisfied
mrsshulick from Seneca, SC
I am not typically a lip color person, but I received this in an Ipsy bag, so why not try?! I am IN LOVE! I've gotten so many compliments today that I may just rotate this look a bit more often.
Make a statement lip colour
Nan M from NJ
Legit, a GORGEOUS colour! pigmented, stay power, the works. I'm in love! which means itl'll be discontinued soon.
Not for mask wearers
Clictoship from Phoenix AZ
So disappointed this did not work for me. Even when dry, it did smear in my mask and bled outside lip lines. Would recommend if not wearing mask.
Best liquid lip color!

Love the color American Girl
A True Lip Stain
Saint Britta from San Diego, CA
Excellent product. No color transference, velvety soft application that feels lightweight. A slight tackiness to the inner lip, which is fine by me. Supple matte finish! Gorgeous and practical.
DO NOT BUY
deb from TX
This purchase was a BIG MISTAKE and it's expensive. So sorry I bought it.
Sticks on the lips not the mask
Georgiegirl 77 from undisclosed
Love the lip pigment. Especially now with wearing a mask sticky lipstick doesn't work. Pigment stays on on doesn't rub off.
I feel like a star
Blueskeyes from Houston tx
Love this lipstick. Feels good in the lips, easy to apply no liner needed. Lovely blue toned red- makes teeth look whiter, with a Semi matte feel and semi transferable. Easily lasts a long time. LOVE IT!
Ali from North Carolina
I got this to wear for my wedding in the shade walk this way (also a huge Aerosmith fan so I love the names) I thought it might be too pink at first but it dries down to a pretty medium pink. It does make your lips feel dry because it is really matte so I'd wear something under it. Otherwise this is my favorite matte liquid lipstick. It is similar to the smashbox liquid matte. It does take a bit to dry down but once it does you're golden.
Masks and lip color!

New mask rules smudge other brands all over your face.
Nars lip pigments stay put!
Why didn't I know about this magical lipstick before?
Angel aka Miss Panda from Minnesota
Omg this lipstick is amazing!! The lady at the store told me to make sure I shook it really well and to never tilt it sideways otherwise it will leak. I was so use to Anastasia and have all the shades but I wanted to try something new. This didn't dry my lips like Anastasia can do from time to time. It went on so smooth and lasted. It lasted through dinner (a burger and fries), through one strong margarita, some crown peach and sprite (tastes like summer) and through some late night pizza. It also is kiss proof. That lipstick isn't going anywhere!! I would highly recommend this. I plan on going back and buying more shades because I am sold!'
Sara5309 from New Jersey
I got a sample of this product in an Ipsy bag. I'm usually not a fan of reds, doesn't go well with my skin tone... but this is perfect! Velvety smooth, stayed on through dinner and still looked lovely. Ordering more soon!
Goldie from AZ
This is easily one of the prettiest reds I have ever worn. It's long lasting in the sense that you don't need to reapply, but it smudged and transferred easily. This is definitely not kissable or something you would be able to eat with.
Elizabeth from Virginia
I used don't stop, a deep red. at first I honestly didn't care for it but I gave it a second chance and fell in love. stays on for a bit
Meesh from undisclosed
I was so hoping this would be more moisturizing than others, but at least it's less drying than other long-wearing lip color. I like the selection of colors and applicator is easy to sort of line my lips with.
Long lasting lip color

Great staying power but made my lips feel dry
