Oh my gawd, I thought as my eyes set upon this red hue by NARS - it's daring and it's captivating. However, Flamenco does not scream lady of the night; it's far more subdued thanks to it being grouped within NARS' "sheer" family. NARS even defines it as a "sheer candy apple red." I've officially fallen head over heels in love with NARS lipstick; I have three tubes to call my own and they've all been non-drying and long-lasting. Although, I've found eating negatively impacts the optimal wear time thanks to constantly wiping my face and licking my lips.
Okay. Not quite Sir-Mix-A-Lot, but wearing red lipstick commands and draws attention. Red lips speak before they even begin to move and you should be mentally prepared for compliments, looks of envy and that nagging question: "What are you wearing?" Since finding Flamenco in my stocking, I have taken this shade out for a spin several times. Flamenco happens to be the perfect shade for girls who aren't quite ready to make the commitment to this or this.
