NARS Embrasse Moi Lip Cover ($28.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy orange with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightweight, smooth consistency that was fluid enough to disperse easily across the lips but did not feel watery or overly emollient, though it seemed to be slightly oilier compared to other shades. The color went on evenly, but there was a touch of product that sat in my deeper lip lines. It wore well for four hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$28.00/0.22 oz. - $127.27 Per Ounce

The formula 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 Hot Tin Roof Liquid Blush

Hot Tin Roof

NARS Hot Tin Roof Liquid Blush ($30.00 for 0.50 oz.) is a deep, coral-red with warm undertones and a natural, matte finish. It was richly pigmented and a little went a long way–that’s the big “downside” as it was not what I would consider “buildable” as the formula was described. One pump of product might be enough to blush the entire face! I used the merest press of the pump on the back of my hand and then used even less than that to get semi-sheer coverage.

The formula itself was lovely–thin, spreadable, and quick to dry down and set but with enough play time to blend and diffuse the edges without lifting up one’s base (and it worked well on bare skin, too). It stayed on well for nine hours on me before fading slightly. I think as long as you don’t mind working with a very pigmented liquid blush (or you prefer high pigmentation in your blush!), it’s well-worth checking out.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.50 oz. - $60.00 Per Ounce

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.
