Perfect Matte Pink!
I love this Nars lipstick! Carthage is the perfect pink. I love lipsticks with a matte finish and this one definitely did it's job. I did notice a tad bit of dryness after a few hours but other than that it was perfect. The pink stayed vibrant all day long! I can't wait to try out different colors!
I own many hot pink lipsticks but Carthage has to be one of my favorties (only second to Sakura from the Bento Box set). The color goes on smooth, is highly pigmented, and lasts for hours. The only reason I took of half a star it because it does dry my lips out faster than my other lipsticks.
