Can anyone offer me a reason to choose Nars lipstick over MAC lipstick? According to cosmeticsdatabase.com (a site that rates hazard levels of cosmetics), Nars is more harmful than Mac. Mac has 0.1 oz; Nars has 0.12 oz. Mac is $14; Nars is $24. In case you're dumb, that's 10 bucks difference! You can buy another (drugstore) lipstick with that money! Not to mention, Mac offers VivaGlam which is also $14, but every cent of it goes it AIDS efforts.
