Besides 5 new Cinematic Shadows, the NARS x Guy Bourdin Holiday 2013 Collaboration brings us a new, limited-edition lipstick formula, Cinematic Lipstick.
The Cinematic formula promises to deliver intense color saturation with a gorgeously glossy shine. It is also enriched with Monoï butter and Vitamin E to provide moisture. There are 5 colors to choose from:
Future Red is a cherry red.
Short Circuit is a bright orange. MAC Morange is brighter.
Goodbye Emmanuelle is a bright hot pink. MAC Outrageously Fun is more vibrant and just a tinge more purple.
Full Frontal is a a muted violet with pink undertones. MAC Riri Boy is more purple and less bright. MAC Violetta and Dolce & Gabbana Violet are similar.
Last Tango is a muted my-lips-but-better pink with brown undertones. MAC Modesty is a very close dupe.
The lipsticks went on like butter and coated my lips evenly with intense pigmentation. They also felt GREAT on my dry lips – lightweight yet moisturizing – and left behind a slightly moist, shiny finish. Handsdown my favorite lipstick formula from NARS! PLEASE make this in more colors!
NARS Cinematic Lipstick is available at narscosmetics.com and Sephora for $26.
