NARS Provoke is a slightly cool-toned, dark plum with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition lipgloss that retails for $28.00.
NARS Provoke Killer Shine Lip Gloss ($28.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a "deep iris-purple." It's a muted, medium-dark purple-berry with subtle, warm undertones and fine violet shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly, but it could have been a little improved on that front. The texture was light-medium in weight, comfortable to wear with moderate tackiness after an hour of wear. It lasted for four hours in total.
