NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection Limited Edition Cinematic Lipstick in Future Red - Review, Swatches, Pictures

NARS-Guy-Bourdin-Cinematic-Lipstick-in-Future Red-on pinksith


Someone asked me how many red lipsticks I own.  This is not a difficult question for most people.  But for me...with all of my red lipsticks scattered around my house.... I have no idea how many I own. I don't know if I have 14 or 40. I know I have more than 3, which is probably 2 more than the average woman owns...but I can't help it. Red lipstick speaks to me.  When NARS came out with its Limited Edition Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection Cinematic Lipstick I honestly did not really want it. Cherry Reds are nice and all, but rather bright for the day time and I don't really go anywhere at night.  Perhaps I have too many bright reds. Perhaps I am too shy to wear a bright "in yo face" red.  Or perhaps I was suffering from Red Lipstick Burnout Syndrome. (RLBS). Either way, I finally came to my senses and ordered the NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection Limited Edition Cinematic Lipstick in Future Red during the Sephora VIB sale. I am so glad I did!

I know I have written several times about the pure beauty of an unadulterated red lipstick bullet. How the pristine surface combined with the red hue makes for an almost delicious treat for the eyes.  I'm sure I have mentioned it. I know this because I'm quite repetitive about certain things.  New lipstick is my weakness and new RED lipstick is my fetish.

Just look at it.  Isn't it splendiferious?!  I might have made that word up. But it is splendid and wonderful and magnificent all at the same time. That is what Splendiferious means.  The pigmentation on this lipstick is absolutely insane. It's quite opaque and quite long lasting.  HOWEVERs we all know, the higher the pigmentation, the drier the lipstick.  NOT SO! Not so I say. for the genius that is Francois Nars has added in Monoi Butter and Vitamin E to condition, hydrate and nourish the lips.

The NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection Limited Edition Cinematic Lipstick in Future Red applies like buttah! No seriously. it practically melds into your lips with the ease of a quick swipe. It has wonderful slip (That's how easily it spreads on your lips. No tugging = good slip). It is creamy and lush and velvety and .... I have run out of synonyms for creamy...but it's all those things.

The color. It's a cherry red. It's a slightly blue based, bright cherry red.  This color is not for the faint of heart. But with the right skin tone you can certainly make this color your own. You will wear the color, the color won't wear you.  WTF does that mean anyway?  I guess I really mean to say is...If you are confident and apply it properly with a lip brush and use a liner, you too can have knockout drop dead amazing and splendiferious lips too.  Wouldn't you like to walk into the board meeting at Pepsi Cola and tell the members that this isn't your first time at the Rodeo!?  Of course you would!  NARS Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection Limited Edition Cinematic Lipstick in Future Red is THAT color. Future Red will give you the strength to tell those execs at PepsiCo to F***Off!...if you are so inclined to do so.

Do you NEED this?  Well you have to be the right person for such a bright red. But if you are that person, OFCOURSEYOUNEEDIT! It's a) Red, b) Limited Edition C)Great Quality d) Under $30!  If you are more of a "sometimes I wanna wear red, but not sure if I really need THIS red" kinda person, I'll be quite honest, you probably don't.  You may be able to duplicate the color with other products. However, you probably won't be able to duplicate the formula or the pigmentation for that is what makes this lipstick unique.

  4. Wow, this looks gorgeous! I'd be willing to bet that you definitely wear the color, it doesn't wear you. :)

  5. Oh no! You're now convincing me to get Future Red, I thought Full Frontal was going to be my only purchase from the range since I already own too many reds (I can use a different one for more than a month) :p

  13. Oh this is interesting. It looks orange-based in the swatch, but on your lips not that much! I haven't had the best experience with NARS lipsticks (maybe I just picked the wrong ones to try), so I haven't looked into them for a while now. Maybe I should pluck up enough courage and give this a go ;)

  14. And I did get it!!! It's really nice and I love the formula, it's so moisturizing -I wish all Nars lipsticks would be like that, wait, no... I would be in bankrupcy if so. Anyway, getting some pictures with it up later today :)
