Nars Schiap | Revlon Sultry Samba | City Color Cosmetics Pucker Up
I included City Color on the swatch because obviously these babies look like sisters.
Nars - offers medium to opaque coverage in one swipe.
Revlon - you need to swipe it 2-3x to get an opaque coverage.
Honestly, Revlon is the most long lasting among the 3 brands with minimal fading when worn after 4-5 hrs. I highly recommend applying a lipbalm prior to lipstick application because of the semi-matte and matte textures.
Though in the staying power game Revlon is the winner, but what I love about NARS is that it is very creamy upon application and dries to a matte finish. It still feels comfortable a few hours after application and doesn't dry out my lips compared to Revlon.
Till next time,
