NARS Spring 2013: Dressed to Kill

NARS Dressed to Kill Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “fuchsia rose with gold shimmer.” It’s a subtly pink-tinged rosy-red with a dusting of gold sparkle. It’s just barely cool-toned; it almost reads neutral to neutral-warm against my warmer complexion. I suspect it will look a bit pinker against cooler complexions. shu uemura Rouge Luster is warmer. Giorgio Armani #406 is redder. Dior Nocturne is pinker, less red.

The texture of this is lightly creamy, and it glides on fairly easily and smoothly, but there is a noticeable texture from the gold sparkle. It provided full color coverage, and the color lasted six hours and left a pinky-berry stain behind for another hour or so. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating, but it was comfortable to wear for the entire time I wore it. I didn’t have any problems with the color feathering or bleeding. There was no distinguishable scent or flavor. If you like the idea of a muted, rosy red, you’ll like Dressed to Kill. It’s bright enough that it’s still a bolder color choice, but it’s not as bold or as bright as your traditional red.
