NARS Semi Matte Lipstick | Fire Down Below
Nars Fire Down Below Semi Matte Lipstick ( $26 for 0.12 oz) The color is described as a "Pure Blood Red" which it certainly is. The shade is a rather deep rouge which leans more towards a terracotta or "brick" color. The matte texture of the lipstick is a bit difficult to work with due to its lack of slip, but once its on it will last for around 4 hours without budging while eating and drinking. It has amazing staying power and isn't as drying as other lipsticks tend to be.
You should still try to exfoliate and moisturize the lips before using a darker shade (especially a matte), but this goes to say with any lipstick really.
This formula comes in 17 different shades and is available in a majority of department stores, Sephora, and on the Nars website.
