NARS Chelsea Girls & Baby Doll Lipglosses

NARS Chelsea Girls Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink beige.” It’s a slighly muted, light-medium pinky-peach with a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly, but I found the color to pull into lip lines. It wasn’t too noticeable from afar, but it did gather more gloss as it wore on. The texture is light-medium in weight, is comfortable to wear with a light tackiness. It stayed on for four hours on me and was hydrating while worn. Several readers mentioned Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer, but unfortunately, I don’t have that, so I cannot compare the two! NYX Tres Leches (P, $6.00) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Bardot Beige (P, $22.00) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Sweet Stiletto (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted. NARS Chihuahua (P, $26.00) is cooler. NARS Giza (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer. Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is lighter, warmer. Bobbi Brown Nude Pink (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, more muted. MAC Persistent Peach (P, $19.50) is lighter, cooler. MAC Everlasting Nude (LE, $19.50) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Pasiphae & Telesto Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows

NARS Pasiphae Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “shimmering peacock burgundy.” It’s a muted, medium-brown with lighter olive green shimmer-sheen; it seemed like a duochrome, but it doesn’t really shift noticeably. On the eye, it mostly looks like an olive green over a warmer, murky brown. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to apply to bare lids, and the color wore for seven hours dry, eight hours damp before fading. Damp application yields much more opaque coverage, whereas dry application is sheer to semi-sheer. Giorgio Armani Green Iron (06) (P, $38.00) is darker, cooler. Gucci Beauty Fumé (Left) (P, ) is lighter, cooler. Too Faced Don’t Settle (LE, $16.00) is cooler. Kat Von D On the Road (P, $16.00) is cooler. bareMinerals Flicker (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter. Make Up For Ever I628 Reptile (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer. Kat Von D Hexagram (LE, ) is warmer. theBalm Runaround Rebecca (P, $16.00) is more shimmery. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #1 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS VIP Red Lipstick

NARS VIP Red Lipstick ($27.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “dark brique.” It’s a medium-dark red with soft, warm undertones and a satin finish. It’s not strongly orange-toned–it has deeper, almost orange-brown tones to it that keep it from being a brighter red, but it isn’t a dark burgundy either. The finish will wear to more of a traditional matte finish within an hour of wear.
