What it is:
A soothing lip gloss that supports antiaging and imparts long-wearing, sophisticated shine as well as stunning color for subtle, everyday fascination.
Makeup artist. Snapper. Iconoclast. Creative visionary François Nars launched NARS Makeups with 12 cult-favorite lipsticks in the year 1994, inspiring self-expression, imagination, and artistry with the uncompromising pigment clarity and imaginative color.
What it does:
NARS Lip Gloss supports with antiaging and lavishes lips in a full range of shades. Nourishing constituents moisturize, leaving lips smooth as well as soft. The doe-foot applicator slithers smoothly with comfort and accuracy for long-lasting wear. NARS has reformulated their lip gloss with nurturing and hydrating ingredients to preserve lips soft and supple while Sea Lavender aids fight the signs of aging. There is an entire of 30 shades which consist of 7 new shades as well as 23 iconic favorites. The gloss has an outdated doe-foot applicator which makes me a happy girl as I am not a fan of brush wands for lip gloss.
This NARS lip gloss is countless because it’s super easy to apply and comes in an infinite array of colors. I even love using the clear gloss on top of a matte lipstick. The formula is creaming, non-sticky, and lasts a good long time, even after eating and consumption. And more, the gloss comes in a nice portable tube, making mid-day touch-ups.
The NARS Lip Gloss is what I would call a more traditional gloss ($29 CAD$26 US). Sheer color with a glossy finish and shorter wear time. The formula is pleasant and lightweight and non-sticky. With all the newfangled hybrid and extensive wearing lip products hitting the market occasionally it’s nice to see a well formulated more “traditional” product with an inspiring shade selection to meet any need.
Nowadays, NARS’ boundary-pushing approach demonstrates from the pigments to the products to the photographed campaigns, shot by the François himself—bringing high-fashion and forward thinking to beauty.
