If you ask me, the biggest thing about NARS Guy Bourdin collection for Holiday 2013 is the introduction of a new lipstick formula . The new Cinematic Lipstick line is everything I ever wanted from NARS lipsticks and never got until now: a comfortable and moisturizing formula. The lipsticks are enriched with Monoï butter and Vitamin E, making them very creamy. They feel great on the lips and seem to simply melt into them as time passes, instead of feathering like some of the regular NARS lipsticks. Let's just say that if NARS was to replace the old formula with this one while keeping the classic colors I'd have a serious problem on my hands.
The glossy finish of the Cinematic Lipstick as well as the pigment have a medium-low longevity, at least in the color I tested, Last Tango. I don't mind in this case because of the superior texture- I get to moisturize my lips AND add color. Last Tango is a dusty rose with a mauve leaning. It's a very neutral and healthy color that goes everywhere.
Bottom Line: Finally.
NARS Last Tango Cinematic Lipstick from the Hoilday 2013 Guy Bourdin Collection ($26) will be available beginning October 15th at NARS boutiques and narscosmetics.com. The product in this review was sent by PR.
