NARS Get Dirty & Overheated Lip Covers

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 Summer 2016 Dual Intensity Eyeshadows

NARS Deep End Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “shimmering teal-green.” It’s a muted, medium-dark teal with subtle, cooler undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage dry, while damp application yielded mostly opaque coverage that had a stronger, smoother sheen. The texture was fairly smooth but slightly firm in the pan, and I had trouble getting true-to-pan, opaque coverage out of this (even when used with a damp brush) as it kept fading down and didn’t blend out evenly. It lasted for six hours before creasing on me. NARS Bavaria (P, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). Hello Kitty Kawaii (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Shoshanna (414) (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Venezia (LE, $12.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Steamy (P, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Glass Slipper (P, $6.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Flower Shop (LE, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Milani Bella Teal (21) (P, $4.49) is warmer (85% similar). Makeup Geek Pegasus (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Inglot #413 (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes #11 (P) is lighter (80% similar).

NARS Sexual Content Dual Intensity Blush

NARS Sexual Content Dual Intensity Blush Duo ($45.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, limited edition duo for summer. Both shades had sheerer, softer color and shimmer applied dry and richer, deeper, and more metallic color when applied damp. The shades work well together, if one wants to layer or use the lighter shade as more of a highlighter and the darker shade to define the cheek.
