What Does Your Lipstick Shape Say About You? NARS Lipstick in Niagara Review and Swatches

When I was a teenager, I remember taking a fun, silly magazine quiz called "What Does Your Lipstick Shape Say About You?" The premise was that how you wore down the tip of your lipstick said something about your personality. Lipstick astrology, basically.

For example, if your used lipstick retained most of its original, slanted shape, it meant that you were a careful, reserved person. If you wore down your lipstick to a flat tip, you must be the quick-thinking, adventurous type.

Me, I always wear down my lipsticks so that they are slanted, but concave on one side. I think the quiz said that meant I was talkative, energetic and creative, which isn't a very accurate assessment of my introverted personality.

It was a fun quiz, but I don't think my lipstick shape can actually reveal great truths about me. That is, with one big exception: this slanted, concave tip shows that I love NARS Lipstick in Niagara

I've featured this heavy hitter in a few other posts, so you might have already figured out that it was one of my favs. NARS Lipstick in Niagara ($24) is a pink-coral shade that veers strongly to the pink side. I love how I look in warm, pure coral shades, but this is the lipstick that I bust out if I want my lips to read more "pink."

NARS Lipstick in Niagara has a creamy, satin finish that is comfortable and non-drying. It has strong pigmentation and good coverage. I usually apply two layers to get an opaque finish.

Like all of my most-worn lipsticks, NARS Lipstick in Niagara strikes that sophisticated balance between brightness and subtlety. This shade is a perfect choice if you want to stand out a little, but not too much, at work or school.

Have you tried NARS Lipstick in Niagara? What do you think? Let me know how you wear down the tip of your favorite lipstick!
