Overall assessment: This is a gorgeous color with great color pay off that is comfortable to wear. My two complaints are that I would prefer a twist up applicator to one that requires sharpening, and that it causes my lips to become chapped after prolonged use when I don't wear it over a lip balm.
$24.00 wherever NARS is sold. I picked mine up at Sephora.
