That's My Name! NARS Christina Lipstick Review & Swatch
Sorry readers, this one has been sitting on the backburner for awhile. Oops, my bad! That aside, who wouldn't you want a lipstick with your name on it? NARS Christina lipstick has been sitting in my stash for awhile and only gotten a little bit of love.
It's a frosty golden raspberry shade that applies smoothly and evenly. It has some resemblance to an old friend in my stash, MAC "O" lipstick. To be honest, I've gone through at least two and used a good chunk out of it in a MAC lip palette. Christina leans more pink in the raspberry spectrum, while "O" moves a little deeper and a hint to the plum side of the spectrum. It doesn't run too cool or too warm, so I would be able to match this up with many looks.
From the handful of times I've used this, its lasted to at least 3 hours before being eaten away.
My only complaint is that NARS lipsticks have a bit of a crayon smell after awhile. So far, Christina hasn't turned that way, but I am concerned that it will. My hope is that it won't because I love that I have a lipstick with my name on it :)
