Sometimes when I buy a new shade of lipstick online, I like to know how it will compare to other colours, especially by the same brand. So this is a quick post to help anyone trying to decide which of the Nars semi-matte reds to purchase, or just trying to see how the colours differ. You can also read a full review of Nars Heat Wave to see more about the texture etc.The Nars semi-mattes are my favourite lipsticks for colour and wear, you can’t go too far wrong with one of these reds. But which one is the one for you..?
|L-R: Heat Wave & Jungle Red|
As you can see, Jungle Red is slightly darker and is more blue-based than Heat Wave’s orange.
|L-R: Swatches – Heat Wave & Jungle Red|
In bright, natural light
So, as you can see, these are fairly similar colours on, but Heat Wave is a touch brighter and on me it looks more of a brick red, whereas Jungle Red is pinker and darker. I have pale skin with warm undertones – if you are cool-toned you may want to try Jungle Red instead.
Or maybe buy both like I did 😉
