NARS Pierce Powermatte Lip Luster Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had rich color payoff in a single layer, and the liquid lipstick had a thin, lightweight consistency that was very fluid and spread easily across my lips. It dried down within 30 seconds and was mostly dry, but if I pressed my lips together, there a bit of tackiness, though the color didn't pull away when I did so. This shade stayed on well for six and a half hours, left a very faint stain behind, and was non-drying.
