Described as an orchid, La Paz is a beautiful deep plum with tiny flecks of gold glitter. The pairing of glitter against a matte base added dimension to an otherwise flat finish, turning into a slightly metallic look that is definitely unique.

Just like NARS Peloponnese Pure Matte Lipstick, this had a slightly gritty texture due to the glitter. It applied fine without being too drying but was prone to highlighting fine lines and flakes. Pigmentation-wise, it was good and lasted for 5-6 hours with a bit of staining.
