NARS Force Speciale is a very cool-toned, dark red with a matte finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $26.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
NARS Force Speciale Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep red with strong, cool blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which adhered evenly and didn't emphasize my lip lines, though the actual product tugged slightly during application (though not painfully). The consistency was lightweight, very thin but not prone to clingy, and was comfortable to wear. The color was still going strong after six hours of wear and left a fuchsia stain behind, while the formula felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.
