Pulsion

NARS Pulsion Lip Gloss ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a soft, rosy plum with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which applied without visible streaks but pulled into some of my lip lines. I didn’t notice the settling in person as much as I could see it in the close-up photos, though. The gloss had a lightweight, smooth consistency that was thin and had minimal tackiness. It stayed on well for four hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.18 oz. - $144.44 Per Ounce

When NARS launched their reformulation of the Lip Gloss range, the coverage was described as "sheer shine to bold luster," but as of February 2019, the brand simply describes the coverage as "sheer intensity." That's not really accurate, as the range does, actually, range from sheer to more opaque--it greatly depended on the shade. The formula is also supposed to be "smooth" and "nourishing." Some shades applied evenly, while others pulled into lip lines or looked streaky. The consistency was thinner, lightly tacky (with some additional tackiness developing over time), but it was comfortable and lightly hydrating over time. I wish the applicator pulled more product out per application, which would make it a bit easier to spread the product out overall.

There did not seem to be any taste or scent to the formula.

No Regrets

NARS No Regrets Lip Gloss ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a muted, medium brown with warm, rosy undertones and a cream finish. It had medium pigmentation with a smooth, lightweight consistency that was thin without being clingy. It didn’t emphasize my lip liens and helped to smooth most of them out. It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Sexy Time

NARS Sexy Time Lip Gloss ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) has a translucent, orange-gold base with flecks of copper and gold sparkle. It had sheer color coverage, which was actually as expected based on the description of the formula, that had good dispersikon of the sparkle/shimmer on my lips for even “coverage.” The consistency was lightweight, thin enough that I could feel some of the grit from the sparkles coming through–if you’re particularly sensitive to that, I’d opt out–but did not find it uncomfortable. It lasted for just over three and a half hours on me and was lightly moisturizing over time.

When are those going to launched? I also noticed that there will be a new liquid blush called sex appeal online (on Trendmood and a Korean blogger’s Youtube video), but it wasn’t featured in your post. Is that not going to be released in the US?

Both No Regrets and Pulsion look like perfect “lip pencil and gloss” types of lipgloss for me to use for days when either my eye look is OTT or more casual days, too. No Regrets has less of that “tomato soup” effect that I have had some trepidation for PMG Flesh 6 LUST Gloss potentially having on me. So there’s that, too.
