NARS is a cosmetics brand founded by French makeup artist Francois Nars in 1996. When NARS was first sold at Barneys, it only had 12 shades of lipsticks. Today, though NARS is still not quite as huge and widely distributed as the big cosmetics brands, it has earned a reputation for offering some of the most revolutionary cosmetics and color palette enjoyed by many professional artists, celebrities, and general public alike today.
Currently, NARS Cosmetics is owned by Shiseido, and is available over-the-counter in major markets other than the United States, including Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.
What NARS Lip Gloss is?
Lip Gloss perhaps was invented because lipstick is not very easy to put on nor to keep on one’s lips. If that was the reason, NARS Lip Gloss provided a solution: effortless style you can wear easily, day in until day out! The other big thing with NARS Lip Gloss is that it gives your lips a sophisticated and striking look as it deeply moisturizers your puckers. NARS Lip Gloss is enriched with Vitamin E that lets you forget altogether how it feels like to wear lipstick that leaves your lips dry and chapped.
Available in 32 shades, a major chunk of the NARS Lip Gloss palette is toned down and best for everyday wear. There isn’t a lot of striking colors that are out of the ordinary or that you can play with just because it happens to be the day when you feel like experimenting on color. Most colors are too safe, and that said, the color palette does not offer a lot of excitement, compared to its counterparts.
For a natural finish, those with lighter skin tones might want to go for Striptease or Orgasm which leave your lips with a kiss of peachy pink. For a darker finish, old rose tint, Sweet Dreams and Istria are perfect. Those with darker skin tones may go for Orgasm and Gold Digger, a little bronzy, almost neutral shade for a seemingly no makeup finish. If a darker pigment is desired, Eternal Red and Sixties Fan will work well for both fair and dark skin tones. For those who are seeking more adventure and bolder look, try Priscilla, a hot pink shade, Wonder, a shade in sheer mandarin orange with pink and gold shimmer or, Burning Love, a bright ruby finish with subtle shimmer.
What are the ingredients in NARS Lip Gloss?
NARS Lip Gloss is infused with natural moisturizing ingredients that include Vitamin E, castor seed oil, jojoba seed oil, and seaweeds extracts that hydrates lips naturally. Each tube also contains palmitoyl oligopeptide which further enhances the softness and suppleness of your lips, and helps fight aging lips. However, NARS Lip Gloss is also made with Silica and Mica which can be skin reactive and cause skin allergies.
What are the benefits of NARS Lip Gloss?
NARS Lip Gloss gives your lips color, medium amount of shine (good news to those who don’t like too much shimmer on their lips!), and superb pigmentation that lasts for longer periods of time compared to its competitors. What’s more, it helps keep lips moisturized even as it helps liven it up with color.
Is there any downside or side effect to using NARS Lip Gloss?
Some ingredients may cause allergic reactions in some people although there are no officially reported cases of health risks associated with product use.
Users are praising NARS Lip Gloss’s non-sticky, well-pigmented, long-enduring formula. However, clients are ranting about the unpleasant product smell and taste, and the very expensive cost of each tube which, many agree, are overpriced.
How to apply?
Use on its own or, top on a lipstick. Use with lip liner or use a lip brush for defined edges.
How long does the NARS Lip Gloss last?
NARS Lip Gloss can stay on from three up to five straight hours.
How much does NARS Lip Gloss costs?
Earlier this year, NARS reformulated its Lip Gloss to address criticisms pertaining to the uneven texture and eventual caking of product on lips after wearing for long periods of time. NARS Lip Gloss costs US$26 for each 0.18 fl. oz. tube.
