NARS Casablanca Lipstick

NARS Casablanca Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “classic, full-bodied coral.” It has a satin finish (so it’s part of the Satin Lipstick formula), which is described as a “lustrous, long-wearing lipstick infused with conditioners to provide comfortable wear and sumptuously, silky color.” Casablanca is a softened tangerine orange with a natural shine and just about full color coverage. Chanel Sari Dore is more vibrant, while MAC Made to Order is glossier and has some shimmer in it. Bobbi Brown Soft Coral is lighter, while CoverGirl Delish is just slightly lighter.

NARS’ Satin lipsticks are creamier than some of the other formulas, though they’re not super creamy or soft. Because they’re not too creamy, they don’t apply too thickly either–you get a nice lightweight feel with your more opaque color. Casablanca wore for around five hours, and it almost stretched to six, but I felt it needed reapplication by the sixth hour. It’s not drying, but it’s not really moisturizing over the duration of wear. I didn’t detect any scent or taste.  As far as oranges go, this is a more wearable one, especially for cooler complexions, though it’s still warm-toned.

I loved it! Can’t wait to try it out, I simply adore orange lipsticks (MAC’s Ravishing is one of my all time fav).

Also, I must say: this color looks beautiful on you, Christine!!!! 🙂

Thanks for the review

This is such a nice, soft orange! I love the way orange lips look on others, but they’re too bold for me. NARS lipsticks are my favorite, I will have to look at this; a good, true coral that doesn’t lean too pink is definitely something I can get down with!

Love NARS lipsticks – this colour is beautiful!

Totally off topic – how did you get your eyebrows to grow back in after plucking them thin?? I’m struggling to get the outer half of my brows to thicken again….note: been plucking since I was 16, I’m now 31. Thank you for all you do!!

I didn’t do anything special – just let them grow 🙂 I only had about 1-2 years of tweezing, though, so it may be different with 15 years of consistent plucking!

I love orange lipsticks and this looks awesome, but I’m not sure how well this would show up on me. I’m fair-skinned, but I have really pigmented lips so when I wear orange it has to be ORANGE.
