NARS Guyane Lipgloss
NARS Guyane Lipgloss

NARS Guyane Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “seashell pink.” It’s a very light beige with a hint of pink and subtle shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff but settled into lip lines noticeably, and it wasn’t completely even. The texture was lightweight, lightly tacky, and lasted three hours but the color settled more and more into lip lines as it wore on. The formula was hydrating while worn. Maybelline Sandy Sensation (115) (LE) is sheerer, warmer. NARS Spring Break (P, $26.00) is similar. MAC Orange Tempera (LE, $15.00) is pinker. MAC Emancipation (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Cut Loose (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. MAC C-Thru (P, $15.00) is warmer. MAC A Quiet Roar (LE, $15.00) is warmer, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

NARS Vent Sale Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “silver highlight.” It’s a brightened shimmering white gold with very fine multi-colored pearl and white shimmer. The base color settled somewhat into lip lines, but the shimmer seemed to reflect back and distract from it to some degree. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage, primarily through the shimmer. It lasted for three hours on me and was hydrating. MAC Clear Water (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery. MAC Softly Lit (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery. MAC Boundless Beige (P, $19.50) is sheerer. MAC Girl on Board (LE, $15.00) is more opaque. MAC A Quiet Roar (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery. MAC Little Rock (LE, $20.00) is sheerer. Guerlain Sable Show (LE, $32.00) is sheerer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Don’t like the 1st one – I can see every lip line, ugh! The 2nd one looks ok, but I prefer a more refined shimmer, probably better layered over a lipstick

Vent Sale….dirty wind? Very odd name for a shade. These both lok lovely on you on the full face shot, but then, what doesn’t? Thanks as always for your hard work.

it means “salty wind”, not dirty wind, if it means “dirty wind” it should be vent sal, as vent is a masculine word and shouldn’t have e in the end of sal.

Sale is always spelled sale, it’s never without an e. I think the confusion is because of the accent – salΓ© would require an e if vent was feminine. Nars was probably trying to allude to some kind of salty ocean breeze, but it’s still a bit of a weird name.

Not a fan of these glosses but I just wanted to say that your eye makeup is super flattering here! Looks great on you and makes your eyes look greener.

I’m sad that other people aren’t digging this collection as much as I am! I have Vent SalΓ© and I wear it over top of YSL’s “Blanc” as well as wearing it solo. I’ve gotten loads of compliments on it! πŸ™‚
