Here’s lookin at you kid- NARS Casablanca lipstick swatches and review

NARS Casablanca is one of my favourite lipsticks, but one that has been neglected for a long time, probably due to my recent lip product buying spree. Whenever I ‘rediscover’ my NARS products I always fall in love all over again. NARS makes some pretty amazing lipsticks with a great colour selection, which manages to be unique but so flattering at the same time.


Casablanca is described as ‘classic full bodied coral’ on the NARS website, but I feel it is more of a creamy orange with terracotta undertones. It is around medium opacity. When it wears off it leaves a lovely peachy stain on the lips which counteracts the purplish tones of my lips and gives them a healthy ‘I’ve-never-even-heard-of-red wine-or-cigarettes’ look.
Casablanca is a satin finish lipstick, which is neither moisturizing nor drying on my lips. It has excellent staying power for a light coloured lipstick, around 4hrs on me.

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  2. awards and nominations for acting, writing and directing. So far, the show has received three Emmy awards. In 2010, Grey’s Anatomy was the fourth-highest revenue
