Luster

NARS Luster Liquid Blush ($30.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a medium orange with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. I expected a lot more shimmer, since the powder version of this shade has it. It had a thin, spreadable consistency that was a little runny but ended up being a lot easier to blend out and apply to the skin than I expected. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that lasted for eight and a half hours on me.

The new formula is supposed to “effortlessly glide on[to] skin for a lasting glow” where “one pump delivers the perfect amount of natural-looking color.” It’s supposed to have “buildable” coverage that’s “blendable” and “lasting.” It has a thin, almost watery consistency that spread easily, blended out well, and looked natural in finish on the skin with semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage. One pump seemed like twice as much product as necessary in my experience, though. I liked using fingertips or a stippling brush for applying the product to cheeks but would dispense on the back of my hand or a metal palette first. It dried down quickly but did not feel immovable, so a little buffing along the edges was still doable. The formula wore between eight to nine hours on me, depending on the shade.

NARS Orgasm Liquid Blush ($30.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and gold shimmer and sparkle. The pigmentation was buildable from semi-sheer to semi-opaque (two to three layers). The consistency was lightweight, thin but not so watery that it sheered out to nothingness, and spread easily across the skin without disturbing base products. For a liquid blush, I found it easy to work with, especially around the edges. The finish was more shimmery swatched than when I applied it to the skin, though there was still subtle shimmer when I tried it on bare skin as a blush. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

NARS Orgasm Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium pink base with warmer undertones and fine, gold pearl with a few larger, gold sparkles. It’s a new, permanent shade that’s part of the Satin Lipstick formula, which is described as a “lustrous, long-wearing lipstick infused with conditioners to provide comfortable wear and sumptuously, silky color.” In particular, this shade was described as “sheer provocation” and as a “pink color with a translucent touch” — seemed like code for sheer.

I found the formula to be thin, emollient but not slippery–it applied without tugging on my lips but did not slide around on my lips, though there was a smidgen of color that gathered in my deeper lip lines on my bottom lip. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was buildable to medium coverage. The lipstick lasted for three hours on my lips and seemed very lightly hydrating. There was no discernible taste or smell.

NARS Sheer Pop Multiple ($39.00 for 0.50 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm undertones and a subtle shimmer. It had medium, buildable pigmentation (up to semi-opaque coverage) that was fairly blendable, though it was easiest to use over bare skin and then easy enough to work with over liquid and cream base products. It did not work as well over powder, though.

The new, limited edition formula is supposed to be a “buildable formula that delivers sheer, high-impact color on lips and cheeks,” and it’s also said another way: “pairs vivid color with a weightless touch,” which seems to suggest that the “sheer” quality is more with respect to the feel of the product than the coverage. That being said, the coverage seems to be “buildable” but still “vivid.” The texture of this shadde wasn’t quite as emollient as the other two in the collection, but it was still thinner and wetter compared to the regular Multiple formula. As a blush, the color stayed on well for eight hours, and as a lip color, it lasted for three hours. When I tried it as a lip color, it tended to lighten and add a more metallic sheen to my lips. It was more comfortable to wear than most Multiples, though it was non-drying overall.
