NARS Laguna Afterglow Lip Balm ($28.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a light-medium, caramel brown with moderate, warm undertones and fine copper pearl paired with a balmy, lightly luminous finish. The texture was lightweight, emollient without being too thick or slippery, and it felt thin on my lips after an hour or so of wear.
It had sheer to semi-sheer color coverage, as expected based on the claims, that covered my lips evenly and dispersed the shimmer/pearl well. It didn’t seem to emphasize my lip lines and was comfortable to wear. It wore well for two and a half hours and felt very lightly hydrating.
