Mini-Review: Nars Lip Glosses

I really do enjoy using lip glosses in colder autumn and winter months as lip glosses are able to provide enough moisture and care to my lips, protect them from cold air and prevent them from getting dry and chapped. The renewed Nars Lip Gloss formula is a favorite of mine and I have two beautiful shades to show you today!

Nars Lip Gloss ($26.00) – serious shine and sexy color in sheer, semi-sheer and creamy formulas. Extremely wearable and versatile shades may be worn alone or over other lip formulas for added dimension.

Nars Lip Glosses come in 40 gorgeous shades with different undertones, finishes and effects so everyone can find something to one’s liking. All lip glosses are supposed to have ultra-smooth and non-sticky formula for even more comfortable wear. Nars states that these glosses are ‘enriched with Vitamin E to help lips feel supple and hydrated‘.

Nars Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight Review

Nars Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight is officially described as ‘pink sherbet‘ and is a light milky pink shade with creamy and glossy finish and no shimmer. It is one of the best-selling glosses Nars has ever created. Due to neutral undertones and light shade this lip gloss suits a lot of different skin tones from the fairest one up to medium ones and looks very flattering both when layer and applied alone.

Due to its milky texture this particular color may settle into lip line a tiniest bit but smoothes out in a couple of minutes and it is barely visible from distance. It has a semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage that makes it wearable on its own but I personally prefer using it in combination with a lipstick of a corresponding color. It  works wonderfully when layered! I really love this particular shade for how light and neutral it is – a very nice lip gloss for everyday wear. It lasts for at least four hours on my lips with minor fading.

Nars Lip Gloss in Dolce Vita Review

Nars Lip Gloss in Dolce Vita is officially described as ‘sheer dusty rose‘ and is a muted medium-toned pink shade with strong plum undertones and with creamy and glossy finish and no shimmer. It is another famous shade from Nars line of lip products. Due to its neutral undertones this shade can easily compliment any skin tone.

This particular shade has an almost opaque coverage as it is intensely pigmented. It goes on smoothly and applies evenly – like a liquid lipstick. It is distinctively pink but looks quite dark on the lips, almost plummy in some lighting. It is a very interesting shade and I love how opaque it is! You can also use it over a lipstick but I prefer Dolce Vita on its own. It wears for at least four to five hours on my lips.

You can see how lightmilky and sheer the Turkish Delight is in comparison with the darker and more opaque Dolce Vita. Both lip glosses are different but both perform nicely. I always use Turkish Delight in combination with lipsticks (like MAC Angel, Urban Decay Native and Clinique Fab Pop) and I prefer the Dolve Vita on its own. Both lip glosses are quite hydrating and have a very nice wear time. I totally recommend checking the line of Nars Lip Glosses as there are many more beautiful shades to choose from.

Let me know if you have already tried these lip glosses and what your favorite shades are. Leave any questions, thought and ideas in the comments down below!

Thank you very much for your attention.

Have an amazing day!

Hugs and kisses,

Dorothea
