NARS SS2011 Pure Matte Madere 5.18.11

This one has been reviewed to death already but I wanted to add my 2 cents to the conversation, NARS Pure Matte is Madere. Yes, this is a semi difficult shade to wear. It is a true flesh color that pulls slightly pink. This color is very reminiscent of MAC's Fleshpot. It is very matte, so that means your lips need to be in tip top condition to wear. It would be very hard to wear if you have dry or cracked lips. However, I do not find that the actual lipstick dries my lips out.





I apply this in a patting motion and I usually put a clear balm underneath or on top. I do not find it changes the color at all. It does change the longevity of the lipstick. The lipstick alone will last for hours, with a balm underneath is lasts a little less, but I rather re-apply than have the look of dry lips.

What I love about this lipstick though is how natural of a nude it is (if applied right), it really is truly beautiful. I love love the color, definitely one of my favorite nudes right now. I like to use mattes because you have a lot of options with mattes. You can make it creamier with a gloss or balm or use it as a matte as is!

Oh yeah, and this lipstick has no stinky NARS smell. Good job NARS! I will be repurchasing this over and over, for sure!

Here is a crappy swatch on my arm and lips. The lighting looks a bit yellow.





Have you tried? Thoughts?

  2. I still own some Mattene MAC lipsticks which i adore, i may try these when mine are done. This shade may be a bit toooo nude for me, a matte pink would look so good.

  3. I swatch this every time I pass by it, and it looks so pretty. I'm kind of scared to wear it on my lips though cuz I always have dry lips =/
