NARS VIP Red Lipstick ($27.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a "dark brique." It's a medium-dark red with soft, warm undertones and a satin finish. It's not strongly orange-toned--it has deeper, almost orange-brown tones to it that keep it from being a brighter red, but it isn't a dark burgundy either. The finish will wear to more of a traditional matte finish within an hour of wear. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
A pure, creamy lipstick formula for bold color. Nars Lipsticks are enriched with vitamin E to increase wearability and keep true color locked into place. They impart semi-matte color so that lips are left looking velvety and full-bodied with a sheer finish.
