Nars – Shanghai Express Lipstick Review / Happy National Lipstick Day!!!

I am in love with Red Lipsticks as so some of you may know I usually opt for a Brighter Red Lip!!!

However, I wanted to explore both ends of the Spectrum (the Red Spectrum) & Opted to try a NarsSemi Matte Lipstick inย Shanghai Express.

Before I go into talking about The Lipstick, It is National Lipstick Day, I mean how co-incidential it was, that my review on the Nars Lipstick is posted on a National Lipstick appreciation day ๐Ÿ™‚ !!!

The Shanghai Express by Nars has a Deep Dark Red Hue or also called Burgundy in its appearance!

However the actual colour of the Red is actually a warm deep Brick Red, when you apply it onto the actual lip! ( So if you are looking for a Dark Red, it’s best you apply the actual lipstick on your lips before purchasing, instead of purchasing it directly). ย < It is Still Dark, but not a Deep Deep Burgundy, only a Medium Weighted Burgundy.

Initially I was very weary about wearing a Darker red, as I thought the shade would make me appear more pale. However, after trying a few shades some Darker, some with brown undertones I saw that the Shanghai Express enhanced & complimented my quite Pale with a tinge of yellow Skin tone colour.

Here is how it looked on my Lips!

& Here is a completed Look I created with the Lipstick, just keeping the eyes simple with an earthy Brown colour on the eyes & a simple Cat eye.
