NARS Schiap

Product Critique: Nars Schiap
Semi-matte Shocking Pink (accdg. to Nars website)
(photo from www.meccacosmetica.com.au)
Subjective Judgment:
My boyfriend gave this to me as one his gifts for Valentine's. (aawww. =])  yeah since it's a haul today, I also got Gina, which I will do a review on, soon, and a mini lipgloss duo as a freebie! :) It was funny. When I asked for Schiap, the SA was like "Oh, the popular Schiap!" I guess my rave is late, but oh well, better late than never! :) So enough about personal stuff. This the perfect HOT pink, and when I say hot, I mean sizzling! I'm so inlove with this I'd marry it if I could. :P Thanks to sis wednesdai of GT who was such a B.I. with Schiap, hope she gets to read this! :)
Here is a photo wearing my new love ♥ :

Pro's:
- the color is looove!
- great staying power. long-lasting
- not hard to blend.
- not messy if you're not used to applying lipsticks, unlike MAC reds, which tend to be so if you're not used to it, IMO.
- uhh. HOT! :P

Con's:
- a bit drying.
- doesn't come in cheap. :(
Rating: still a 5 over 5 for the very very lovely color. :)
Where to Buy and How Much: Nars, Rustan's. 1250php.
Re-purchase: If this one expires, definitely! This one's gonna be with me for a long time though, only gonna use it for night outs or special occasions. :)

Oh and sisters, HELP! Still can't make it look like MAC Nouveau, or a barbie pink shade. tried it with pale pink gloss, and my gloss just doesn't seem to do anything but gloss it out. Any suggestions?

@sis soapaholic. Thanks! =) I find myself on the same ground, reds make me look like I got into mom's into make-up. =P

@sis Sush, well I'd expect it too, even suits and complements Rihanna's skintone. ;)

sis, you can try putting NARS turkish delight lipgloss on top to make it look like MAC Pink Noveau. Or you can mix Schiap with Roman Holiday. I did it one time and my friend who is actually wearing pink noveau thought that I was wearing the same lippie.
