NARS Lip Glosses: Albatross, Luxor, Super Orgasm, Luster, Angelika, Oasis

NARS Sephora Exclusive Lip Glosses

…coming to a Sephora near you!  These officially launch on July 29th, and they are exclusive to Sephora and limited edition.  Each shade is designed and created after several of NARS’ best-selling blush shades that go by the same name. I showed you swatches and photos a week or so ago, but now I’m pleased to be able to give you lip swatches, too! 🙂

NARS Lip Glosses have a thinner texture, and they feel lightweight and don’t dry out lips.  They’re not ultra hydrating, but they impart some moisture into lips while you wear ’em.  I find them a little tacky but not sticky, but it definitely depends on how much you apply.  They’re scent- and taste-free, and you get a good amount for your $24 (0.28 oz.).  Colors are on the sheerer side, like most lip glosses, but they all gave lips a different look than au natural, which is fantastic.

  • Albatross is a semi-sheer champagne beige base with brighter champagne gold shimmer with a glossy sheen.
  • Luxor is a sheer milky pink base with brighter pink shimmer and a glossy sheen. It’s very similar to Albatross, just pink-toned. Luxor has a bit of an iridescent flash to it, which makes it a step up from your ordinary lip gloss.  (This shade is a Nordstrom exclusive!)
  • Super Orgasm is a light pink with golden sparkle. It has a slight milky, jelly kind ofl ook, but it gives some color, though it’s hot opaque.
  • Luster is a brownish beige with orange-gold shimmer. It’s semi-sheer, and it’s one of the shades that didn’t seem to apply as evenly as I’d have liked. From a normal viewing distance, you couldn’t really tell, though.
  • Angelika is a bright pop of blue-based pink with a slight lilac edge. Despite the strong cool undertones, it’s definitely wearable on warmer skin tones.
  • Oasis is a mauvey pink with golden shimmer and a glossy look. This one was definitely my favorite, because it gave me some color but looked really lovely all on its own. More jelly, less milky, but still plenty glossy.

  • Product: 28/30
  • Value: 9/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

Recommendation:  If you’re a fan of NARS’ Lip Glosses (or even Blushes) and see a shade that suits you, they’re definitely worth a look-see once they launch.

Availability: July 29th at Sephora

Thanks for the lip swatches! I would have totally passed on Oasis because it looks so dark in the tube but it looks so wearable on you.

Ahh! Darn you, Christine — you’ve lit a major fire in my heart for Oasis! The powder blusher looks so stunning on you, and now the lipgloss, too?! *hides wallet*

Then again, I *am* almost done my second round of finals…

When I first saw these little tubes of gloriousness, I was most excited about Super Orgasm but now that I see them on I am looking forward to getting my hands on Luster as well!

YAY! Lip swatches!! I love these! I wish they were sold as a set. I also wish the price was the price for all of them! HAH! They are so nice, but really, just SO OVERPRICED! I mean, just 2 of them racks up to $50! I can barely pay rent, dude!

Wow, they are much much sheerer then I would have liked to see. I think that Albatros is the only one that sparks just a slightest interest. I think I will stick with Mac, they have some pretty amazing collections coming out in July. Better quality for what you spend then these.

I bet Albatross and Luxor would look great layered over some lipsticks I have. 🙂 Also Super Orgasm is another lipgloss I need to get my hands on too lol. Thank you for posting the swatches and pics, they are always very helpful!

I love your swatches! And I love how you include pictures of you wearing the glosses or whatever you’re reviewing for that matter 🙂 And I also agree with a reader, I would’ve totally ignored Oasis but it looks fab!

OMG you just look stunning in all of these. Especially Super Orgasm and Angelika looks AWESOME. Your eye make-up is just right. And those sexy brows….. I am more jealous of those than of your entire make-up collection, and believe me, I envy you THAT! ha!ha! 🙂

It think what I like so much about these pics is that you look so healthy! 🙂

u r looking super cool in oasis
have to have it now….
oasis gloss on my list
nobdy does lip swatch better then u …
m i repeating??? but thats the fact n m not the only one who says this right?
love u n temptalia

Oh boy…why did I come in this post?! I see a trip to Sephora in my future. The only shade that probably won’t work for me is Angelika.

Oasis is very pretty. I swatched the blush since you paired it with the gloss one of your tutorials. This is a nice alternative to Orgasm, which is barely noticeable on my skintone. I may have to buy this duo!

They’re a little bit expensive, but fore those glosses, it’s TOTALLY worth it! I want them all..!
Atleast I want Albatross, Angelika, and I can’t decide between Super Orgasm and Oasis 🙂 I can’t remember that I’ve seen anything like Albatross before!

I wasn’t sure about some of the colours in the tube, but they all translate beautifully on the lips! Angelika looks like candy. ^_^

I just realized that you said these are scent taste free. Do they smell like the “regular” permanent NARS glosses? Because those are notorious for smelling a bit like crayons! I don’t mind though since I don’t notice it too much buy I know some can’t stand it.

I love NARS glosses! Can’t wait for these! =)

P.S. I was wondering if you’ve tried any Pop Beauty face/cheek products like their highlighters, blushes, and bronzers. I’ve looked all over online and can’t find many solid reviews or swatches -mainly blogs just having the product info taken from the site with the company’s product info listed. I just want to know if they’re any good. Thanks!

Well, to me, the way they smell is how ingredients would likely smell by themselves – which is why a lot of brands *do* add fragrance to camouflage the way ingredients come together, lol. (At least, that is what I’ve been told… not a cosmetic science here!)

But regarding these, I didn’t notice any crayon/waxy scent at all. In fact, I just got up and re-smelled Super Orgasm, and it didn’t have any scent at all. I just tried a Lip Lacquer by NARS, and the waxy scent was pretty strong, but yeah, didn’t detect in the new glosses 🙂

I think I tried them once upon a time, but I haven’t tried anything in recent years! Wish I could be of more help!

Thanks! I don’t notice a strong scent in NARS glosses either but I know some do so I was wondering if they “smelled” like the others. =P I agree. The Lip Lacquers smell super waxy and are stronger than the glosses. I prefer the waxy scent though over anything perfumey and floral like 90’s drugstore makeup.

Hi Christine,
I love your site and all of the swatches! How do super orgasm and the regular orgasm color compare? Is super orgasm the same color except with more shimmer?
Thank you!

I was wondering if anyone has a good MAC dupe for Oasis, because I love it, but don’t want to splurge on it when i may have a dupe in my collection.

Does anybody know when Luxor is going to be available? I already bought Albatross (which is incredible) Luster and Oasis, but I can’t find Luxor anywhere.
