NARS Adriatic is a slightly cool-toned, light beige with a frost finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $26.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
NARS Adriatic Hardwired Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a "glistening soft cream." It's a light, pink-tinged beige with metallic shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but this one didn't apply as evenly as the other two. It didn't seem to have more slip, but it sure looked as if it did. The color pulls into lip lines over time, so it is a very high maintenance color to wear. It lasted for three and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Kat Von D Agatha (P, $21.00) is more matte, less shimmery. MAC Peach Beige (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, more opaque. MAC Strip Poker (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, more opaque. MAC Siren Song (LE, $16.00) is sheerer. Maybelline Bare All (910) (P, $7.49) is lighter. NYX Fortune Cookie (P, $4.00) is more metallic. MAC Annelie (LE, $22.00) is darker. MAC Crème d’Nude (P, $16.00) is less shimmery. Buxom Nudist (P, $21.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
