Review: Nars Lipstick in Schiap

It's very rare for me to wear a lipstick 3 days in a row, most especially now since I have an abundance of unloved lipsticks. NARS Schiap was definitely love at first wear. Schiap (ski-ap) is considered as a "shocking matte pink," and the word "bright" is definitely an understatement. It isn't for the faint hearted and it takes a while to get used to the color. It wears VERY well, around 6-8 hours w/ eating and drinking.  It's described as a semi-matte, but I did find this drying to my lips and I somehow needed to use chapstick on it after a long period of time. Though it is very drying, the color all the more makes up for it.

For me personally, this color is worn best when everything else in the face is very simple so as to give the lip color the attention it deserves. Now on to the pictures! :)


Until Next Time! :)

Like the way you put it together with the eyeliner...I love it too! I was looking for more of a neon but I love that it's not too pale and doesn't make my teeth yellow. Generally find pink scarier than red, but this doesn't seem as statement-y as some. Have to disagree with you on the wear, though: for me was more like an hour with eating.
