NARS Valparaiso Lipstick

Valparaiso is a city in Chile. Thanks to Francois Nars, it’s now a raspberry matte lipstick.

Unlike the square-ish lipsticks tubes in the regular NARS line, Pure Matte lipsticks come in a slim round tube.

This is making me want to try out more Pure Matte lipsticks. I love sleek packaging!

I swatched it in natural light:

With flash:

I took a photo of it on my lips, but the photo does not do it justice. I have to tinker with my better camera later this week to try and get a decent lip swatch.

On my lips, it’s a deep raspberry with slight purple tones. I love how the yellow in my skin brings out the purple. I wore it today with winged eyeliner (courtesy of Jordana FabuLiner)

Who’s willing to take a trip to Valparaiso….in Sephora? 🙂
