I love the wear of the lipstick; it applies like a matte would but it doesn't sink into your lips in an unflattering way. The color is vibrant and pigmented for 4 hours before it starts wearing off! I honestly love this formula for lipstick, I find it a lot better than the original Nars lipsticks which usually give me 2 hours of wear before I need to reapply. This color is perfect for summer and for hot months as I don't see it budging while you play on the beach! Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do :)
I love the applicator stick. I like it a lot more than the rectangular tubes for the regular Nars lipsticks!
Nars Carthage on my lips in direct sunlight. Extremely wearable in both day and night settings!
