Here's an unexpected must have for Summer, the new NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Moscow.
I thought for sure the matte finish would be too heavy for Summer and that the loud shade would be unwearable.
You NEED it.

It's not the most moisturizing formula I've tried, but it's definitely one of the more hydrating matte (or nearly matte) lipstick formulas. I've had the best luck with the darker shades in this range, while lighter ones tend to be a little less forgiving.
NARS Carthage Pure Matte Lipstick
my thoughts on the formula:
Pure Matte lipsticks have a matte finish, and while they're not moisturizing, they don't rob my lips of moisture. Mattes do, however, last longer on lips, and NARS' Pure Matte lipsticks last between four and five hours on me,...
" This is an orange-red coral with a natural sheen that reads mostly matte from afar. Guerlain Habit Rouge is redder. Guerlain Sheer is a bit glossier, a touch lighter. NARS Joyous is a browner, more muted version. Moscow has incredible pigmentation with opaque color in a single pass.
They're mostly matte without being drying or uncomfortable to wear and deliver excellent color coverage with little product. It could be a touch more moisturizing over the time it wears, but for a matte, achieving "not drying" status is good.

I picked it up during a recent Sephora haul and I sure am glad I did.

used my Rouge Coco lipstick in Leyende only once, because I realized too late that I already have lots of lipstick in a similar color. It felt a little weird for me to use designer lipstick on a daily basis too. See beauty blogger Karen of makeupandbeautyblog.com rock her own Leyende...
These two lip products that I will review feature matte shades of lilac and bronzed red for a statement lip look.

Again, NARS proves to me that matte's aren't all evil. A superior formula, a gorgeous shade of color for Fall, and a long, strong comfortable wear time makes this matte shade and this matte lipstick in general well worth the purchase.
