For the Holiday 2015 Limited Edition Collaboration Collection with Steven Klein, NARS released three brand new Killer Shine Lipstick ($36 CAD) shades that promise intense colors with an addictive gleam. Today I have a couple shades to share with you: a peach beige called "Besame Mucho" and a plummy red called "No Shame". To see some swatches, click.......

Packaging:
The Killer Shine Lipsticks come in a matte black rectangular tube. The cap has white embossing on the cap that reads NARS and Steven Klein. The lipsticks are a tad too light and flimsy to my liking, I wish they had a nice weight to them.

Formulation:
A gorgeous deep berry red, "No Shame" is incredibly pigmented with a slick, almost buttery finish. I'm impressed with how smooth and moisturizing the formulation is without compromising the color. "Besame Mucho" on the other hand is a creamy pale beige peach. Despite this being a lighter shade, the pigmentation is still super intense.
The wear for "Besame Mucho" is pretty weak but "No Shame" is very long-lasting, leaving a strong berry tint even after the lipstick wears off.
