NARS La Paz Pure Matte Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as an “orchid.” It’s a subdued, purpled berry with silver sparkle. It’s mostly opaque applied to the lips, and the consistency felt slightly drier than other Pure Matte lipsticks. I could feel a very slight grit from the sparkle when I was applying it, but I couldn’t feel it when I pressed my lips together. It lasted six hours well, but it was slightly drying after four hours of wear. NARS Never Say Never is lighter, less shimmery. MAC Yung Rapunxel is much darker. MAC Strong Woman is purpler. MAC Dish It Up is pinker, lighter. See comparison swatches.

Peloponnese Pure Matte Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “ginger pink.” It’s a muted, peachy-brown with gold sparkle and a frosted finish. Like La Paz, I could feel the sparkle in the tube when I applied it to my lips, but I couldn’t feel it if I pressed my lips together. It also had a slightly drier consistency compared to other shades in the range. This shade appeared more frosted on the lips than the other one did, but it also had opaque color coverage. It lasted five and a half hours well, and it slightly drying as well. shu uemura OB Dream Orange is less frosted, lighter. NARS Casablanca is darker, less frosted. MAC Freckletone is sheerer, less sparkly. Guerlain Gracieuse is pinker. See comparison swatches.
