NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Madere

NARS Madere Pure Matte Lipstick ($25.00) is the only product I picked up from the NARS Spring 2011 collection.  It is a pale pink-fleshy beige with a true matte finish. The coverage is quite opaque and really nudes out your lips.  This very light matte nude when swatched nearly matches my skin color right now.  What I found that I like to do is use this color as a base to wash out the color of my lips when using other nude/light colors.  It provides a great base for that. Overall a great nude to add to your collection. It can be used in so many ways with other lip products.

  1. Do you find this drying? My Pure Matte in Bangkok makes my lips feel like a prune after I put it on

  2. I always make sure that I moisturize my lips before I apply and I usually wear with a gloss over top.

  3. this colour looks great, whenever i get a nude thats too pale i use it over other lippies that are too bright or dark, i recently bought mac naturally eccentric on line and its nearly white in person so i use it in that way.
