The Summer Season: NARS Hot Wired Lip Lacquer

NARS Hot Wired Lip Lacquer ($24.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a jelly textured raspberry pink with bright, iridescent fuchsia micro-shimmer.  NARS’ Lip Lacquers are incredibly moisturizing and feel very slick–but not sticky–on lips.  The color pay off yields a nice semi-opaque look.  It works well on its own or layered over a lipstick, too.  The only thing I have to note is that the scent was like crayons/wax–a scent that has plagued more NARS’ lip products than I’d like.  It doesn’t linger, but it was quite potent in the jar.

Is this the right pink for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.
