Review: NARS Pago Pago Lipstick

Described as a "shimmering pink" lipstick, Pago Pago is part of the NARS Sheer Lipstick line. According to Sephora, each NARS lipstick is "enriched with vitamin E to increase wearability and keep true color intact." Pago Pago was released with the summer line and I believe is a permanent color. NARS lipsticks retail for $24 USD.

The lipstick itself is easy to apply and has a balm like feel to it. Due to the fact it is part of the sheer line, the opacity is minimal. Once applied onto my lips, it muted the pigmentation slightly but also gave of a hint of pink and shimmer. The translucence of the color may attract many people since it's easy to apply and will flatter most skin tones, however; the shimmer may deter some since it may be deemed "not work appropriate." I only found the shimmer to be very noticeable up close and also when it was close to reapplication.

The wear on this lipstick is about 3 hours. If you are a lip licker, it may be shorter. The smoothness of Pago Pago allows for more slip and less staying power. You will be left with remaining shimmer. However the shimmer particles are not gritty on your lips, which is a plus.

For me, this is a great lipstick for a lunch date, running errands or for those who wish to have a natural feel with a little kick (the shimmer). Those who wish for more opacity should stay away from Pago Pago.


  1. Sounds like a really pretty lipstick. I really like the shimmers, it brings life to the office :)

  2. Pretty!! Natural lip colors are always great for everyday wear. ^^

  3. that lip color is really pretty!! ohh nars is always right on the ball :D

  4. It's too bad that men almost never buy lipstick for their GF's or wives--"shimmering" is a great word to get a guy's attention.

    I hope you're doing well.

  5. That looks like a perfect neutral colour just for everyday use :D


  6. that lip color is gorgeous!! i love it and want it!!
