I got this NARS lipstick a few weeks ago. But, have been wearing it every other day since I did. I love that these NARS lip sticks are sheer (like the name suggests) but they are easily buildable. Cruising is a beautiful everyday color. That can be worn with very bold makeup or it can just make a neutral look very clean and sleek! The packaging is the standard NARS packaging. I love that it feels sturdy and secure so I do not have to worry about the top coming off if I throw it in my hand bag while I am out for the day. The wear time is very nice with this lipstick. As far as formulation I love it! This lipstick never leaves me with a dry sensation as the day progresses. It goes on smooth and I do not even apply a balm underneath it.
