I really wanted to like this. The color is an absolutely gorgeous and rich pomegranate red, but Flair is by no means a sheer lipstick. It's most definitely opaque on my lips and trends towards extremely dry (which is consistent with my other NARS lipsticks). I don't wear it often because it requires exfoliation and a heavy slathering of Carmex beforehand, but when I do it looks amazing.
This is my perfect mlbb shade. It is not exactly a nude shade imo, it is too dark and dusky.
I keep this in my purse, because it is so easy to apply and is really comfortable on the lips. I often reach for this instead of a lipbalm if I'm out and want to look polished, but not too 'made-up'.
This is not a exciting shade, however I've already repurchase it once. I'd rather splurge on a lipstick that I use constantly, than a trend shade I only wear a couple of times.
