NARS Manhunt ($24) is a sheer lipstick, which I prefer over the semi-matte, satin, and shimmer formulations, because it is not as drying. Manhunt is still not a particularly moist or glossy lipstick, but that's just the way NARS lipsticks are; the have good traction, so they last. I like the sheers because some deliver a bold shot of color while still being natural looking, letting my own lip pigment show through. The texture is soft and silky, and when it wears off it leaves a light stain behind.
Because the formulation is so sheer, I occasionally dot a tiny bit high on the apples of my cheeks and blend.
Described as poppy red, the color leans warm overall, but I find it can be a bit of a chameleon, so it really depends on your own lip pigment. Since my lips are medium mauve-rose, Manhunt appears as an almost watermelon color on me. It reminds me of that Kool-Aid red punch, which I can't believe is still on the market.
Without any adulteration, and in direct sunlight, you can see the orange undertones, which are not too strong. I also see pink, giving this lipstick an overall impression of being coral.
Bottom line: Excellent quality and color—work having for coral lovers.
