NARS Sheer Lipstick in Porte Vecchio
This is a lovely dark sheer that gives darker girls a nice neutral effect with a bit of a “kick”. Porte Vecchio (fabulous name by the way!) is a med/dark brown with a red/burgundy undertone to it. The formula is extremely moisturizing and has a nice sheen to it! I love NARS and this is just one more favorite to add to the pack! This color is perfect for tones from actress Gabrielle Union to fashion model Alex Wek.
I love the strong berry shade, and despite the fact that it’s matte, it goes on easily.

I was as pleased as I thought I would be. This was the perfect product to use in the morning when I needed to get out of the door quickly or on the weekends when I just needed a basic look. I used this on my eyes, cheeks and lips and find it excellent for all three. The texture is a little dry (so if you have very dry skin a moisturizing primer is essential!) but I that's why it's so long-lasting. I applied it with my fingers, blended well and created a nice stain on my lips, and a nice flattering color on my eyes and cheeks. With this and a little liner, mascara and powder and I was ready in five minutes! This shade is a dusty, pinky peach, the perfect shade for me! This shade has enough red to give a me fresh looking cheeks, but also enough orange/pink tones to really warm it up in a sophisticated way. I just looked really healthy and glowy when I wore it. Also it seemed to bring out my eyes dramatically. It’s incredibly flattering and also very versatile. It has a great stay-put texture without being drying or cakey – my color didn’t fade at all during the day. This particular shade will work very well up to a Beyonce complexion.
