NARS G*psy is a very warm-toned, medium-dark plum with a natural finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $26.00 and contains 0.12 oz.
NARS G*psy Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark plum with stronger, warm undertones and a natural finish--glossy, lightly creamy. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, though it was part of the Sheer finish (as long as you like higher coverage, I don't think that's a deal-breaker). The color applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was lightweight, lightly emollient without being too slippery, and was comfortable to wear. It lasted nicely for four hours and was lightly hydrating over time.
Note: It was deeply disappointing to see this shade keep its name in the recent reformulation, as the shade range was greatly expanded with lots of new shades (and names), so it was a perfect time to update the name of this shade, rather than continuing to use a racial slur as a product name. Over the years, readers have commented and sent in emails about g*psy being a racial slur (here is an article from NOW about it), which is how I was first educated about it. I always try to take the time to share that this word can be considered hurtful to Romani people in hopes of helping share the message I've received from my own readership over the years.
