Heat Wave - A true orange red matte lipstick that doesn't feel uber drying on the lips. It's definitely a whip at special occasion lip stick for me. Its little darker than MAC's Lady Danger, which you can take a look by clicking on the link. One of my most daring coloured lipsticks, and one of the best formula's from Nars.

Belle Du Jour was my first Nars Lipstick and I love it. It has to be on the top favourites for nudes. It is a pretty mid tone brown that leans a little on the pink side. It is not as opaque but still gives good coverage and sheen on pigmented lips.

Honolulu Honey was another nude I like especially because it leans more on the peachy side. It is much more opaque than Belle du Jour and will be most flattering on warmer skin tones :)

Schiap is the in your face, oh em gee hot pink that is a little more on the purple side, although not so obvious. It is very pigmented and does not dry out my lips! It is not quite as red as Girl About Town or as Purple as Gladiola, almost in the middle of the two. It is almost identical to MAC's Something New but not quite.

Roman Holiday is a very wearable mid tone soft pink that is a little bit on the cooler side. It is so pretty and delicate and a little on the sheer side compared to the others but I just love it. It is the perfect pink for the spring.

Finally back with another swatch post huh guys! I was just starting to bore you with all those other unnecessary posts! :D

P.S Did anyone take a look at MAC's Quite Cute collection? To be honest, I am not feeling the pastel pinkness because it does not look women of coloured friendly at all, unless some else would care to digress?
