NARS AFGHAN RED Lipstick : Review and LOTD

nars afghan red lipstick

NARS AFGHAN RED is described as “RICH GARNET” and is from SATIN FINISH range. AFGHAN RED is soft rosy burgundy red shade. If you are scared of full bodied red and still need a shade for evening wear, do give this a shot. It looks so classy even when you have bare minimum makeup on eyes.

This is the fourth lipstick I am trying from this range, earlier shade I reviewed are – Christina, Niagara and Casablanca. I love how versatile NARS Lipsticks are, they are not close to MAC anyway but still the colour range which they offer is out and out winner for me. I am diehard fan of semi matte range and satin finish is also not bad. The only finish which is still to impress me is – SHEER. I have some shades to show you from that well, have shared swatches here!

The finish like I have mentioned in my earlier reviews, it is soft, smooth and glides easily. They feel pretty moisturizing and when it fades I don’t get dry lips. It is not opaque in one swipe; I do need 2 – 3 swipes to get enough coverage which stays on my lips for 3 – 4 hrs.

On scale of 1 – 10, I would give this 8 – it is great shade for everyday lip colour which is bright but still is easy to wear. I find semi – matte range more long wearing so I wouldn’t recommend this to someone who likes their lipstick to stay for more then 5 – 6 hrs. I get good wear time but still not exceptionally great plus if you want to explore this range I highly recommend shade like – NIAGARA.

    Nice shade Rashmi! It does feel more sheer on the lips. Honestly, prefer to see your FOTD rather than just LOTD coz it also gives us an idea on what eye makeup or blush colour would go with such colour. But, i know you are pressed for time coz of your travel plans. Hope to see you in Mumbai!

    And excited to see that your Flamenco has reached you!! Looks like a promising colour!
