NARS: Jungle Red Lipstick


A few weeks ago while browsing the NARS display over at Sephora, I decided to finally purchase the very much raved about Jungle Red lipstick from NARS ($24.00). And honestly, I think this may just be one of my new favorite red lipsticks. It could not have arrived in my life at a better time, too, with the holiday season approaching and all.

Check it out!


NARS Jungle Red Lipstick

NARS Jungle Red Lipstick


Jungle Red is a showstopping, vivid true red that packs a punch in the pigment department. My swatch pictures do not do this beauty any justice. It's a super rich shade that adds a lovely classic feel to any makeup look. When I first saw the color in the tube, I thought that it would for sure contain a pure matte finish. So imagine my surprise when I first applied it, and discovered that the finish was more of a semi-matte. It has the best of both finishes-a matte base with just the right amount of creaminess, that makes for a very pleasant texture. Speaking of texture, Jungle Red has a smooth consistency that glides on effortlessly. It feels so smooth and lightweight on-even all throughout the day. Also, I love how this lip color doesn't enhance any dry bits my lips may have. But of course as with any lip color, I always suggest prepping the lips prior to application, to obtain the best looking results. 

As in typical NARS fashion, this gorgeousness is housed in a sleek, matte, rubberized tube, that just embodies sophistication. Gotta love that. I am really impressed with the lasting power of Jungle Red. This lipstick definitely has the strength to hang on for hours, with very minimal, even fading, and only one touch-up required throughout wear time, if desired. I did eat and drink a beverage with this lip color on just to see how well it would fare, and I am happy to report that it held on pretty well. I experienced some light fading but for the most part, the color still looked really good on my lips. Almost like a stain effect, but more saturated.

Overall: I only have a handful of red lipsticks in my stash, but Jungle Red is definitely one of the better reds that I have tried so far. The quality is there, it's a suit-all kind of shade, and it's a red that will work not only for night-time looks, but it's pretty wearable for daytime wear too. This lip color is a winner and the raves that Jungle Red receives are very well deserved, I think. I highly suggest giving it a try!
