Francois’ Insight :

I have a real love affair with lipstick. It has such strong impact on the face. You feel immediately elegant and chic and it gives the face a lot of strength. It gives you more power.

Shade description :


Wonderfully fun fuchsia
Artist’s Tip No. 1 –
In addition to giving an amazing burst of color on the lips, I like to use Schiap or Funny Face Lipstick underneath concealer or foundation to knock out dark circles or bruising!

Artist’s Tip No. 2 –
An easy way to apply a Semi-Matte Lipstick is to apply it from the center of the lips and move outwards, then fill in the edges with lipliner moving from the corners to the center of the lips. Both lipstick and lipliner will glide on easily for a smooth, matte finish.

Artist’s Tip No. 3 –
When you really want to give your lips focus, go with a Semi-Matte Lipstick or a Pure Matte Lipstick. Wear alone or with a tiny bit of gloss in the center of the pout to enhance the color.

Price : USD 26

Available in 16 shades



My Experience with NARS Funny Face Lipstick

NARS lipsticks come in a beautiful black plastic, long and squarish, rubberized case, with an outer cardboard box with white printing. This lipstick shade is described as ‘wonderfully fun fuchsia’, and I would go even further to describe it as a bright berry-magenta. The texture is fabulously rich and smooth, pigmentation is full coverage, and it comes across as non-drying, even on my very dry lips. I like how it instantly brightens up the face with just one swipe, makes the teeth look whiter, and looks great on all complexions, mainly fair complexioned beauties. The staying power is great too, on me it lasted all evening, even through a meal and some coffee, and later it faded to a beautiful dark pink stain, but it didn’t vanish completely, and I loved how my lips still looked as if I had lipstick on, even though it was by then just a stain.



Having so many pinks and bright fuchsias in my stash already, this shade immediately caught my eye by being so unique – neither plum, neither purple, neither shocking pink and neither maroon. Just a perfect blend of all those colours together, I would say. I’ve always received compliments and questions whenever I wear this and one lady told me she had never seen such a unique shade before and asked me if I knew a dupe for the same. I didn’t of course! May look a tad bright for office wear, but it’s absolutely awesome for evening and party wear, and goes well with a light baby pink blush and black eyeliner on upper and lower lashline, topped over a subtle wash of light beige eyeshadow. This lipstick makes a statement in itself and definitely knows how to announce it’s arrival anywhere!



Pros of NARS Funny Face Lipstick

• A beautiful bright, though not shocking, shade of berry magenta, bordering on a deep fuchsia.
• Awesome smooth, rich, and completely full coverage.
• Soft smooth texture.
• Does not feel heavy on the lips.
• Stays for at least 4 to 5 hours.
• Fades evenly to a dark pink stain.
• Classy packaging.
• Suited for evening wear or for special occasions.
• Would suit most complexions, especially fair complexions.


Cons of NARS Funny Face Lipstick

• None (except non- availability in India).

IMBB Rating : 5 on 5

Would I re-purchase NARS Funny Face Lipstick ? I want ALL the shades in this range, and if I could, I would keep at least 2 back-ups of this shade.

Coming soon, a review on another shade in this range.
