NARS Releases Lipstick Film With Heather Marks

Nars Releases a Short Film About Lipstick

To promote its new line of Pure Matte lipstick, Nars tapped filmmaker Tim Richardson to direct a short film starring model Heather Marks. What starts with a nod to The Lady From Shanghai's most famous scene ends up in a kaleidoscopic take on Marks's face. It's a more arty take on lipstick than your average promotional campaign. Do you like it?

Bella, so very true. I was just ranting cause I just got to liking the gloss so much and it's so much easier to maintain than lipstick. As usual, I'll be wearing the matte lipstick too!

It's out tomorrow, Psychgirl. Then you can matte away 'til your heart's content. Lizlee -- Rita's amazing in that movie, right? Orson ain't too shabby himself. Amber -- all trends come back eventually. Imagine how I feel about my junior-high fashion disasters showing up on college kids. "No, don't do it," I want to tell them. "You will regret pairing lace leggings with a floral fit-and-flare dress."

I like it a lot; I'm a big fan of The Lady from Shanghai - it's my favorite Rita Hayworth movie and performance. This is beautiful, though; and it kind of makes me want to buy the lipstick (which is wierd because usually ads don't work on me)...

It does nothing for me. I would like to comment on how the beauty (and fashion) industry is consistently changing it up - I remember (yes, I've lived a few years) when matte lipstick was "IN" and you couldn't find a gloss or shiny lipstick on the planet; then high shine lipstick came, eventually gloss (lipstick was out) and it stayed for a long time. Now that every woman is totally stocked with high shine lipstick/gloss, they bring in "MATTE". Just one more b*itch - as a lipstick queen, I've totally become a lip gloss person and now it's back to lipstick. It took me about 2 years to gloss my lipstick and then about 1 year to go gloss only. Oh the humanity! :makeup:
