I just had to gush about the new member of my makeup family: I introduce Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage.
It has the matte consistency that, until now, I thought was only available in Mac. But Mac doesn't have many vibrant pinks in Matte; they tend to be very tame.
I love the tube, that it is tall and thin. It provides accuracy with applying, meaning I don't need a lip brush. Carthage is a color more appropriate for the summer than winter, so I am having fun with it now.
