NARS has just released the limited edition NARS Cinematic lipsticks, a new moisturizing formula with vibrant color and soft shine in five colors–NARS Last Tango, Future Red, Full Frontal, Short Circuit, and Goodbye Emmanuelle ($26 each). I’ve developed a bit of an addiction to these–especially Last Tango and Future Red, so I thought it worth featuring these.
According to the NARS line, these limited edition lipsticks include a “blend of lip conditioners and antioxidants known to hydrate, nourish and protect lips,” including Monoï butter and Vitamin E. These NARS Cinematic lipsticks do feel very luxurious and hydrating, far more like the Chanel Rouge Allure line. These are gloriously pigment rich–although Goodbye Emmanuelle is clearly Liz’s favorite, I’m having a very hard time choosing between Last Tango and Future Red (oh, Future Red is a very, very nice red!). Last Tango has been living in my Louis Vuitton for the past several weeks, I hope it has enjoyed the traveling that I’ve subjected it to, as I’ve certainly enjoyed having it along during those drying flights!
These are all creme texture (no shimmer) and pack plenty of pigment without depositing a lot of product:
Here is my favorite Nars Last Tango:

Overall, I’d say “bravo” to NARS for this lovely formulation. These have gorgeous pigment, good wear time, gorgeous gloss and a moisturizing feel. I adore the reds and the neutral Last Tango. Since using these for several weeks, I’ve upgraded this from “These are lovely and well worth a try” to “don’t miss these, they’re limited edition and you really need at least one.”
