Today’s post is a review of NARS Semi Matte lipstick in Funny Face. I already have a NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl (a bright red) which I love, it’s definitely my favourite matte lipstick – but mattes do tend to be drying on the lips due to the high pigmentation. So I thought I’d try out a semi matte to see how it would feel…
This lipstick was £18.50 from ASOS, and arrived in a black NARS box.
The lipstick casing has a lovely velvety soft matte rubberised feel, if you own NARS products you’ll know what I mean!
The lipstick itself is a beautiful intense fuchsia pink. The colour has a slight iridescence to it, which I think makes it more of a wearable day to day colour than if it was a full on matte shade. The colour is rich and opaque, and If you like bright lips like I do I think you will love this!
I would say this is on a par to the Velvet Matte Pencil, but for someone with dry lips like me, I’d say this is actually a better formula. Some lipsticks cling to dry skin and emphasise it, which the Velvet Matte Pencil tends to do, but this Semi Matte lipstick didn’t at all. It felt comfortable to wear and lasted a good few hours before I needed to re-apply. Also there was no bleeding, which is often a problem with more intense colours.
If you’re a lipstick lover looking to treat yourself beauty gift this christmas (as I have) I’d definitely recommend you give this lipstick a try! 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx
