Editor's Review

Risky Business is described as a "warm raspberry." It's a muted, coppery-red with pink and white shimmer. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, and it noticeably darkened the natural lip color and added a lot of shimmer. The application was mostly even, though I could slightly feel the texture of the shimmer. The color lasted for three and a half hours on me. MAC Flash of Flesh (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Dior Ambre Lumiere (227) (P, $29.50) is darker, warmer. Chanel Daydream (P, $29.50) is redder.

I'm a super busy mom of 2 and am MAC shade N4. I've been a die-hard MAC fan for years, but after getting a Nars gloss in a different shade a while back and loving the light, relatively non-sticky feel of it, I went in search of a shade that was close to my holy grail Viva Glam VI lipglass. This isn't exactly the same (on me, the Viva Glam VI is a smidge more toward the browns and Risky Business is a bit more pink) but they are pretty similar. I love that I don't feel like I have to layer this with a lot of lip balm to thin down the stickiness. The Nars Risky Business gloss is definitely in hot competition with my Viva Glam VI for the only one I carry in my bag for day-to-day. I get a lot of color payoff with it, more than I would usually expect from a gloss, and lately I've been loving it to just throw on by itself with a casual eye look and I'm usually good to go.
