NARS Vivien is a moderately cool-toned, medium-dark plum with a satin finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $34.00 and contains 0.14 oz.
Vivien is a medium, rosy plum with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The lipstick had excellent color payoff in a single pass, which covered the lips evenly and smoothly. It was creamy without being too slippery, thick enough to keep out of my lip lines but never felt heavy on, and felt comfortable to wear. This hue stayed on well for six hours and was lightly hydrating.
