NARS Oasis Lipgloss

NARS Oasis Lipgloss

NARS Oasis Lipgloss ($24.00 for 0.28 oz.) is described as a “sparkling pink champagne.” Is this really what one thinks of with the description of “pink champagne”? Am I alone when I look at the swatch and read the description and feel like it’s not really fitting? It’s a semi-sheer plummy pink with flecks of gold shimmer and a high-gloss shine. This shade was originally part of a Sephora-exclusive set of blush-inspired glosses and has made a reappearance in the fall collection.

NARS Lipglosses are supposed to be comfortable, glossy, and non-sticky.  I don’t find these completely non-sticky; I wouldn’t go out of my way and say they’re sticky, but there is a little tackiness there.  They are comfortable to wear, and the texture spreads evenly across the lips.  Though in the past, these glosses have smelled plastic-like, I didn’t notice any scent or taste with Oasis.  I only achieved three hours of wear with this shade.

Classy look! Christine I was wondering, when you said there was an plastic smell to the lip glosses, did you notice the smell immediately, or did you notice the smell after it was a bit older (1 month with a couple of uses).

I have a NARS gloss that I used to really love until I noticed a smell about a month later that was pretty plastic like. I don’t know if it had that smell initially, or if it was sign that the gloss didn’t react well to being used =/

Hmm! Alright, so I’m not usually a fan of glitter in lipglosses – but this is quite cute! I still remember being SO surprised at how amazing Oasis (erm, as in the blush) looked swatched when you reviewed it last year; it looks kinda unremarkable in the pan, but applied, well

there’s something abt nars lip colors…they’re always so pretty! and yet i find, across the board, that nars products (especially lip colors and the multiples) don’t wear nearly as long through the day as mac products. but the colors are soooo pretty…argh!

Very pretty! This looks great on you! I was a little perplexed by the description as well. It is totally not my idea of a pink champagne 🙂 I think they did a nice job of matching it up with the Oasis blush shade. 🙂

I have Oasis and I agree that it’s not a sparkling pink champagne. It’s more of a raspberry, but it’s lovely. I like it a lot.

It’s a lot sheerer than I expected, which is a good thing since I can’t pull off dark colours without looking goth. I’ll have to check Oasis out in Sephora, it’s really pretty. It looks amazing on you, Christine!

I really love this color! I’m going to have to check it out this week. I was pleasantly surprised with the swatch, as compared to what it looks like in the tube.

Christine this is a random question but I really need ur help on this. Is the Mac pro blush in Taupe similar to the shape powder in Sculpt? I Just want to kno if the colors r similar or completely different hues. Plz reply 🙂

I quit buying NARS lipglosses because after awhile they start to leak for some reasoning. All of mine have and so have my sisters. I’d rather spend the money on Dior Addict Ultra Glosses

I bought Oasis blush recently which has the same shade description and it definitely doesn ‘t fit ! Oasis leans really plum on me at least , I ‘m actually waiting until fall to wear it because it just looks out of place .

Lauren Avatar

I agree. It’s definitely more of a berry-plum color. I love it though. It’s like a sheer, sparkly version of Nars’ Strawberry Fields gloss from last fall.Very pretty.

This is cute! I love it on you, Christine!

For one thing about the shade’s name… I had a pair of glasses that were this type of pink and there were some ppl called them ‘Pink Champagne’ either. I don’t know why.

I tend to like NARS lipglosses. They don’t feel hydrating when apply, but amazingly keep my lips from drying! After several uses comparing to other glosses in my stash, this is what I found. If they don’t sometime smell plasticly I would LOVE it!
