NARS Joyous Red Lipstick

NARS Holiday 2011: Joyous Red Lipstick

Described as an “amber red,” NARS Joyous Red Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is an opaque, orange-red; it’s almost more of a coral-orange than it is a genuine take on red. MAC Drive Me Wild has a more apparent golden sheen, as does Lancome Groupie.

The finish has a very subtle shimmer and sheen, but it’s barely noticeable–but it is there, very fine gold micro-shimmer that catches light beautifully. Joyous Red has a creamy consistency that glides on easily and deposits rich, even color in a single pass. NARS lipsticks are scent- and taste-free, and Joyous Red wore for five hours on me before it started to fade (and needed reapplication after six hours, including a meal).
