Éphélide

NARS Éphélide Lip Tint ($26.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It’s a new, limited edition formula described as a “natural hint of color with extremely comfortable wear.” It medium pigmentation that applied fairly evenly across the lips. The product had a thinner, wetter texture going on that immediately developed into a smooth, non-tacky, and gel-like consistency on the lips. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating. There was no discernible scent or taste to the formula.

Double Decker

NARS Double Decker Lip Tint ($26.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a soft, medium red with warm undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on evenly and made my lips look stained and glossy. The consistency was smooth, non-tacky, and not too thick or too thin, so it didn’t move around a lot but still felt comfortable to wear. It actually felt more like balm than a gloss, despite having quite a bit of shininess. This shade lasted for four hours on me and was moisturizing.

Promise

NARS Promise Lip Tint ($26.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a dark berry with cool undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had medium pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips and didn’t settle into my lip lines. The consistency felt thin and creamy as I initially applied it, but as soon as I spread the gloss across my lips, it felt smoother, more gel-like, and rather plush. This shade stayed on well for five hours and was hydrating over time.

These look infinitely better applied to the lips than the arm swatches ever would have indicated! I’m loving the stained glass jelly effect these have. Enough to say that I will be checking out Éphélide and Double Decker!

I love this concept — hydrating, balm-like, comfortable, rich color. Ephelide catches my eye; I need to check it in person, it may be too dark. And, happy to see the names aren’t offensive; perhaps they’ve heard the customer concerns. Hope Nars makes the line permanent if they’re well received.

I hope NARS will add the formula to their line-up! It was pretty cool in terms of texture, and it was comfortable to wear.

These look really nice! Would you say the formula bears any resemblance to either the Velvet Lip Glide or NARS’ regular lipgloss formula?

I was really hoping I wouldn’t like these, but daaang I love all of them. Especially Double Decker!! Do you know if this will be in Sephora by the spring sale?

Are these like the YSL glossy stains? Your description sounds similar (the thin texture when it first goes on that then becomes more gel like.)

These look nice. They sound very comfortable to wear. I like Promise a lot, but Double Decker isn’t far behind.

I don’t typically go for a gloss but Double Decker and Promise are gorgeous. I’ll definitely swatch when I hit Sephora next weekend for the sale. ?

Really like the color of Double Decker & interested in how the product is “…non-tacky, and gel-like” in consistency after applied. Sounds nice.

Are the shade names correct? I looked these up on the NARS website, and Ephelide looks like Double Decker in your review and vice versa. Just asking. Thanks!

It looks like they’re not, though I’m not sure why (I photograph in alphabetical order to avoid these things happening). Ephelide is definitely the lightest/more mauve shade. I’m so sorry and I’m glad you were able to catch that before purchasing and thank you for letting me know since I just mislead and caused so many problems for everyone here. I’m really, really sorry for making such a horrific mistake.

Oh my gosh, no worries! I just went to NARS’s site to look at them (because I want at least one!) and noticed that their names/swatches looked very different. It’s certainly an easy mistake given all you review every day! Don’t beat yourself up, and thank you for being so gracious in your reply.

I am so excited about these!! I knew Promise would end up in my buggy, but ephelde is now also looking super promising! I am ALL for this new sheer balmy trend, it makes me SO HAPPY after months of being sooo sick of matteness! so yay! lol 🙂
