Wow! Now THIS is Lipstick! : ) Love it!

HOLY GUACAMOLE! I redeemed this as a 100point perk and I am SO GLAD I did! : ) Boy is this PIGMENTED in the most awesome way possible - you don't even need to re-dip the wand a single time even if you have more voluminous lips. I just love, love, love this formula. You can apply two layers for a deeper darker red or just one for a poppier more vibrant red as well so that is kind of cool - this formula is so opaque and pigmented that you can wear the lightest of layers and have full blown colour and because of the intensity of the pigment a "normal" amount of liquid lipstick (aka 2 layers) allows you to darken the tone if you want to play with the colour a little bit. The want is really well shaped and easy to use - I prefer it to any other lipstick wand/applicator from the other liquid lipsticks I have tried because it's much easier to do a precise application with this shape/pointed wand. Normally I always have to overline my lips with lipliner but with this formula I am able to use the lip pigment as both liner and lipstick! : ) Here is a photo of the first time I tried it on - I did a terrible job with the application but it shows that I have two layers on in the full sunlight (and allows you to see the darker colour you can get by putting a bit more formula on the list). Another member of the Beauty Insider community posted a beautiful picture of herself with only one layer and on her the colour really popped brightly so it is like you have two-options bolder or darker with this formula. It feels light and I found that for a liquid lipstick it was not dehydrating - it was nice and flexible and comfortable. I will definitely be purchasing more of these in other colours and as Christmas gifts. I would imagine that a tube also lasts forever since my 100-point deluxe sample size will likely last me a year at least. Now THIS is lipstick!!! Performance is fantastic - lasts all day.

I'm Shookethed.. excellent formulation

NARS doesn't play! I love matte liquid lipsticks despite the fact that my very own lips hate them.. I have tried a number of brands from sephora and nothing preforms quite like this. It's incredibly lightweight, highly pigmented, very opaque, and super long wearing!! Like whut?!? Best yet, it doesn't dry-out or bother my lips one bit. Doesn't give me ANY problems what so ever! No pigment/product buildup in creases and no need for constant touch ups. A little bit of product goes a looong way so ultimately I think you're getting a good bang for your buck. Also can I mention the applicator?! fine and precise at the tip, great for shaping the lip. OMG and the shades... The list is endless! I love this baby!!

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.

Not practical

Nice color but not a practical product, more like the name suggests it’s a pigment and in my opinion just great for photos. I used it on a regular day it dried down matte as usual stayed on considerably for about 2hours then I drank water from a cup and was appalled at the fact that the rest of my water turned red full of pigment!!! I got scared for my health so had to return it. Gave 2 stars because I like the color

Does anyone have a red lip color that isn’t too bold? I just want something chill enough to wear to class or out for lunch. I’m chill with any form: stick, floss, liquid, etc.

Can anyone recommend a lip color similar to hers? I’m assuming it’s blue red. I feel it would best suit my skin tone! Thanks beauties. 💛
