Splurge vs. Steal: NARS Hot Wired Lip Lacquer and Zoya Hot Lips

Rocking a statement lip often means bold color. For many women, this isn’t a statement you make every day, therefore shelling out the higher price tag isn’t always ideal. I stumbled across a fantastic Splurge vs. Steal that involves a day-glo bright fuschia lip — most definitely a statement. Zoya’s Hot Lips in KissKiss is a dead ringer for NARS Lip Lacquer in Hot Wired.

The colors are a near perfect match, although KissKiss has some shimmer.  Zoya’s Hot Lips will set you back $6 and NARS Lip Lacquers are $24. Whether it’s hot pink or bright coral, there’s plenty of statement lip options in the Hot Lips line. The formula is very smooth and sticky (a postive thing in this case = staying power) and even contains lip therapy ingredients and a light berry scent. In this case, we’d opt to “save.”

  1. Cindy – thanks for the recommendation!

    Sophia – I think the trends for fall are leaning vampy again and a bold lip is definitely coming back! I often tend to do a lighter lip since that’s more in my comfort zone — especially light pinks:)
