I was in search of a new red for my collection when i stumbled upon Nars Shanghai Express. A deep semi-matte red, this specific red was said to be designed at the hand of Francois Nars for Asian skintones. The remarkable thing about this lipstick is how it is able to pull the gold from the skin to really warm up the face. This is the perfect red for women who tend to lean yellow with their skintones. As are other Nars lipsticks, Shanghai Express is a touch on the drying side. If your lips are dry be sure to wear a balm underneath this lipstick. I personally love the semi-matte finish. It gives the lips a very retro-glam feel. Retailing at $24, Shanghai Express is a little pricey but well worth the pennies. This lip would pair quite nicely with a bronze cheek or a dark black cat eye. Pictured below is my LOTD using Shanghai Express. What is your favorite red lipstick? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
