NARS Do Not Disturb Lip Cover
NARS Lip Cover ($28.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is a new, limited edition formula that is supposed to have “rich and lustrous” color with shine. They are a liquid lipstick, but they are not the type that dry down to a fully flat, transfer-free finish. They stay emollient and can slide around, and they transfer a lot–but they are also pretty pigmented so despite color being left on coffee cups and the like, a lot of hangs around. They’re comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating, but they wear no longer than four to five hours. There was no discernible scent or taste to the formula. I didn’t have issues with the color feathering or bleeding on me, but the formula definitely has the slip that may make it a possibility for those who tend to experience that with their lip products!
NARS Get Dirty Lip Cover ($28.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a “desert rose.” It’s a muted, medium peach with subtle, rosy tones and a natural sheen. It had opaque color payoff with a creamy, light-medium consistency that applied evenly to the lips, but there was some emphasis of lip lines. It was comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating, and non-tacky. The color lasted for four hours. Colour Pop Rayezor (P, $5.00) is less glossy, darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty Caramel (P, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Peppermint (LE, $5.00) is less glossy, cooler, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Naked 2 (DC, $22.00) is warmer, lighter (90% similar). MAC Naked Proof (LE, $17.00) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Skinny Dip (P, $22.00) is less glossy, lighter (85% similar). Givenchy Beige Mousseline (101) (P, $36.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
NARS Overheated Lip Cover ($28.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep dusty rose.” It’s a muted, medium peachy-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy shine. This shade had the most slip of the four shades, which also made it appear the glossiest–the texture was a little thinner and watery. It had good coverage, though, but it seemed to move more even when just talking and I noticed a little color on my teeth even after an hour or two of wear. It lasted for four hours in total. Maybelline Touchable Taupe (940) (P, $7.49) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Too Faced Chocolate Honey (P, $21.00) is less glossy, warmer, darker (85% similar). Bite Beauty Honeycomb (P, $26.00) is less glossy, lighter (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Marion (P, $18.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Too Faced Melted Chihuahua (P, $21.00) is warmer, brighter, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
