NARS Autumn Leaves Lipstick

NARS Autumn Leaves Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “translucent glistening brandy.” It’s a reddish orange with a subtle golden orange sheen. Sort of like a rusty orange, or the melding of the colors of the sunset. Chanel Sari d’Eau is brighter, more shimmery. Guerlain Orange Euphorique is lighter, peachier. Cle de Peau Danse du Feu is richer, more opaque. MAC Powerful is glittery and more orange.

This shade is part of the Sheer Lipstick range, which is, not surprisingly, on the sheerer side. From my experience with the range, though, it’s more semi-sheer with translucency but not really barely-there color. That’s something personally appeals to me, but if you were actually seeking subtle color, they may still be too pigmented for you!  It has a really great lightweight feel on the lips; thin with a natural glistening sheen.

Autumn Leaves delivers semi-opaque color coverage with that translucency NARS was talking about; you can see the natural lip color coming through.  I wore Autumn Leaves earlier this week, and it wore exceptionally well–it lasted for six hours and felt hydrating the whole time.  NARS lipsticks come in black, rubberized square tubes and are scent- and taste-free.  They contain a little more than the average lipstick (0.12 oz. vs. 0.10 oz.).
