NARS Combat is a slightly cool-toned, dark berry with a metallic finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $26.00 and contains 0.18 oz.
NARS Combat Powermatte Lip Luster Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark plum with cooler pink and violet pearl. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single, fluid layer, which applied evenly and smoothly over my lips. The texture was slightly creamier than other shades, and it took longer to dry down; even after it seemed to do the bulk of its drying down, it had a touch of shine, in additional to the metallic finish. The liquid lipstick remained tacky when I pressed my lips together but did not lift any color away, and it did not slide or move around. It stayed on well for six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.
