NARS - Schiap Lipstick

I had this lipstick sitting in my stash for over a month before I finally wore. It seemed too bright and in your face to wear to work so I had to wait for a weekend that I felt like wearing it. I wish I hadn't waited that long.

Schiap is a beautiful hot pink. What used to be my type of lipstick, before I started working and became a boring lipstick wearer. Sometimes bright lips can be just too high maintenance for an on the go work environment. 

Schiap is described by NARS as a 'shocking matte pink'. Yes to the shocking pink part but I would consider it a semi matte finish. The longer it wears the more it dries down but it is not fully matte, there is still a slight creaminess to it. This lipstick is super pigmented, the swatch at the end of the post is two swipes. 

I was really impressed by how well this lipstick wore, over a full day I only touched up once and that was after eating lunch. It wore off evenly too which meant not ugly line left around the lips. It just faded evenly, so it still looked good even though the colour wasn't as strong. 

Application of Schiap is super easy, it has a very creamy texture that makes application smooth and even. I applied two layers, blotted and applied another layer to put the shine back. I didn't use a lip liner and experienced no problems with bleeding or smudging. 

Overall, I am really in love with this lipstick. It looks amazing on - really brightens up my face and looks polished. It's the type of lipsticks that you get complimented on (and I did within an hour of being out). It is comfortable to wear and looks good the whole time.

Schiap would be one of the brightest pinks I own (and I own a lot of them). None of my lipsticks are quite the same shade; they are a bit more fluro and slightly paler. Schiap happens to be one of the most comfortable too and has the best wear. 

If you are looking for a pigmented, easy & comfortable to wear bright fuchsia pink lipstick I highly recommend you check out Schiap. It is like nothing I own and I am so happy to have it in my stash. 

Schiap can be purchased from Mecca Cosmetica for $39.00.

Is Schiap a lipstick you would rock?
What's your favourite bright pink lipstick?


  1. Wow this pink certainly is bright! Definitely a stunning shade! I have a few similar-ish shades though so I couldn't justify the purchase, not that I could afford it anyway!
