NARS Lovin’ Lips Lipstick is a muted, medium, rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and was comfortable to wear. There was a smidgen of product that sat in my deeper lip lines, but it wasn’t noticeable in person and didn’t get worse over time. The lipstick wore nicely for four and a half hours and felt just barely hydrating over time.
NARS Hot Kiss Lipstick is a muted, medium rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, but it didn’t adhere as well to the inner area of my lips. The consistency was very lightweight, thin, and firmer in the tube, so it dragged a bit during application if I tried to apply in one, fluid stroke. Despite that, it actually felt comfortable to wear as the thin texture didn’t feel clingy. It lasted well for four and a half hours and felt non-drying while worn.
NARS Erotic Adventure Lipstick is a muted, dark reddened plum with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was firmer in the tube and quite thin, though it didn’t feel clingy (almost weightless, actually), so it didn’t apply fluidly in a single stroke; it was best applied with shorter strokes. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, and the color went on evenly and didn’t sink into my lip lines over time. This shade stayed on well for five and a half hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.
