Review+Swatches - NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Moscow

NARS just hit us up with their summer color collection and what they call a strawberry red of their Moscow Pure Matte Lipstick ($27 @ sephora.com) I’d call more of a brick orange red. Now I’m quite a fan of these lippies and say they are worth the slightly hefty $25 price tag.

As with most matte lipsticks, they are quite drying and start to dry the lips out after about 1 hour. Not these ones. Lips stay quite hydrated for the wear and it only starts to fade after about 4 hours (without eating or drinking anything).
