My favorite "red" lipstick from Nars is Flair. It gives the pop and wow factor of red lips without being too harsh or garish. Flair is definitely a 'cool' red, with the tiniest bit of berry, and a little bit of shimmer, but it is still rich and deep. I think it would be lovely with your coloring.

since you are a bit older, you don't want to have a red that is too dark or pigmented. Try something a bit more sheer like Nars' "Flamenco" or if you don't want something sheer, try "Trans Siberian." Always wear a lip liner before and after your lipstick application so the lipstick doesn't bleed into the wrinkles around your lips.
I suggest using Nars' Velvet Matt Lip Pencil instead of a Nars' lipstick because you get a more precise lip application with it.
i hope this helped!

Go with one of the more coral reds. Those look better with your type of coloring than a blue red or deep red. Nars has good descriptions of the colors to help you stay away from the undertones (like blue) that you don't want.

A good red lipstick from Nars (for those with fair skin / light eyes) would be either Viridiana (rich burgundy), Gipsy (sheer warm berry) or Fire Down Below (semi matte pure blood red). Those colors are deep enough to contrast really well with fair skin, yet add a hint of warmth to the face as well. Avoid orange reds and choose reds with either a bluish undertone or a warm golden undertone.

Because of your hair color and your eyes, you might want to try more of a sheer berry. This will give you the pop of a reddish color, but not the harshness of an actual red lipstick. Dior and MAC make some really good sheer reds that are not too overpowering. Also being blonde you should look for colors that have a bluer undertone and are a cooler hue.

RED LIZARD - it's a great red for fair skin - not too orange, not too blue. It is very intense, but for a softer look you can just pat the color into lips with your finger and then apply a gloss on top.

I really think it depends on what kind of statement you're trying to make with your lips. If you just want the lipstick to accent the rest of you I would recommend a light peachy shade such as the Barbarella, if you're going for a little bolder look you should try the Catfight.

Flamenco is a really nice red to start with because it's sheer and very flattering, and the texture is to die for. If you want to take it up a few notches, there are more bold reds, like Red Lizard, or deep reds, like Fire Down Below, but those have a matte formula which is a bit harder to work with.

There are so many shades of Nars lipstick that would work for you! If you have a cool undertone to your skin, which is probable if you have dirty blond hair (not golden). Here are a few suggestions: Catfight, Dolce Vita, Klute, and Mitzi. I was "color draped" in the 8th grade, and I absolutely love picking out colors that compliment people based on skin undertone, hair color (golden, reddish, or ashy), and eye color.

For fair skin and light eyes, you want a color that will pop, but that won't be overwhelming. Try the new Urban Decay lipstick-- it's sheer, so you can control the level of pigment, and also seriously moisturizing for a supersoft pout. For your coloring, try "Lovechild" a delicate, Scarlett Johansson-worthy pink for day and "Wanted", a beautiful berry, for a sexy, sassy nighttime look.

With dark brown eyes and very fair skin, you have to be one of two seasons: Autumn or Winter. If you look better in browns and earth toned clothing, you would be an "Autumn", and should look for "warm" lipstick shades such as terra cotta, tomato and brick red (warm), peach, and browns. If you look best in clothing such as hot pink, blue red, navy, and purple, you would be a "Winter". Lipstick shades that would be complimentary will have a "cool" undertone: pinks, fuchsia, berry, raspberry, true and blue red, and mauve. A particular shade of lipstick cannot be recommended until your skin undertone is determined.

You might consider Dolce Vita in Nars lipgloss. Great all year color for daytime. It has a little more pigment for daytime and great staying power.

I forget that when I buy quality (Nars) lipgloss/lipsticks apply it and forget about it! Great product.

I haven't tried Dolce Vita yet. I went to check out the new Sephora one day and I tried on Bella De Jour and fell in love with it! It is a great nude to wear alone or under a nude lipgloss (like striptease). At first I thought it was too good of a nude effect but with dark smokey eyes this lip color would pop.

Even more important than your hair/eye/skin color is whether you have warm or cool skin tone... if you have cool skin tone (the veins on the inside of your wrist are mostly blue-ish) and attempt a warm color, it is likely to go a little to brick-y or brown on you, and won't look right... if you have warm skin tone (veins appear more green), and try cool colors, it will probably turn blue or grey-ish, and won't be very flattering. Just remember to give it a little while (at least 15sec) to let it warm up to your lips first before you judge it.

The great thing about Sephora is that they have a fantastic return policy, so go ahead and try it, and if it isn't what you are looking for, return it.

Have you ever searched the Reviews to look for a specific Nars Lipstick shade?
Most Sephora gals will tell you they love 'their look'', "don't like it" or ''like the way it feels'' -
Then leave out the most important part of their review: "The Color"!

That's what the Sephora Review forum is for.
On the side bar you have your eye color & skin tone listed so Online buyers can judge 'what shade would work for them'
If you've left out your NARS Lipstick Shade and a description of it: Then You've Wasted Our Time & Yours...
A lot of women are online buyers. It's elementary to list THE SHADE OF ANY COSMETIC you've purchased.
Don't Abuse Sephora's Review Forum with Nonsense.

Nars color for African American women?
Can you please recommend colors for African American women? I am the same complexion as Queen Latifah, if that helps.

It really depends on what type of effect you're going for.
If you want that deep and Classic effect, you would like Afghan Red.
If you want a deep but neutral look, go for Corinthe.
If you just want a sheer wash of color, try Napoli or Niagara.
But then again, its your choice.

it depends on what you're looking for: are you looking for a nude? Something more bright? I'm a little lighter than you and really like Pigalle for a pinky nude, and Fire Down Below for red. Corinthe is nice too (if a little coral). hope that helps!

PURPLES!! Beautiful on African American women! PERIOD!!... for blush try to stick with like a mauve/pink like NARS BLuSH in DOLCE VITA or bronzer that has a little bit of pink tone... i think the NARS bronzer in Casino would be beautiful as well! try it out!! you'll love it!!

It is indeed a soft pink shimmer, like a sheer tint. I really liked this lipstick-it reminds me a lot of the Orgasm gloss without the sticky nature and is more pink than peach. It is perfect for everyday and doesn't make that unnatural ring around you mouth as it fades.
