Preview: NARS Sephora Exclusive Lip Glosses

On July 29th, NARS will roll out five limited edition lip glosses at Sephora. Each will retail for $24 and is named after one of their best-selling blushes. The shades include: Albatross (luminous glow), Angelika (cotton candy pink with gold and silver sparkle), Oasis (sparkling pink champagne), Super Orgasm (peachy pink with gold glitter), and Luster (sheer golden apricot).

  • Albatross is a sheer white-gold with pale gold shimmer.
  • Angelika is a semi-sheer brightened blue-based pink with very subtle silver shimmer.
  • Luster is a sheer muted tangerine-peach with copper-gold shimmer.
  • Super Orgasm is a sheer played down pink with gold shimmer.
  • Oasis is a plummy mauve with gold shimmer.

NARS Lip Gloss has a thin, slightly tacky texture.  I found these a little stickier than the average NARS Lip Gloss.  Though I’ve only tried Albatross on my lips, they seemed on the sheerer side (which is standard for the brand’s glosses), so don’t expect a big pop of pigment.  They’re all easy-to-wear, everyday kind of shades.  Angelika is the brightest, but it sheers out quite a bit–it has a creamier, jelly-ish look in comparison to the other four, which definitely have more of a shimmer finish.

(I would happily do lip swatches for you, but these photos were taken at a NARS preview event that I attended in San Francisco yesterday, so all I got are swatches for now! Apologies!)

I always think NARS glosses look lovely in the tubes but the price tends to put me off trying them. Super orgasm is very pretty though!

Angelika and Super Orgasm look quite pretty, but I’m not sure I would feel comfortable having a lipgloss called Super Orgasm! XD

Hi Katrina,

Did you see the note at the end of the post? The photos and swatches were taken at the products at the event – I do not have samples myself, so I couldn’t do lip swatches. I’m really sorry!

Lovely. All of them. Angelika and Oasis are really pretty! I just really dislike sticky glosses, so I no matter how pretty they are, if I detect a wee bit of stickiness, I don’t wear it.

Looking forward to the Angelika being that the blush is my absolutely favorite blush ever. Hopefully I can pull of using the blush and the lipgloss at the same time.

I love the look of luster…I’m still debating about getting the blush, but since I’m really pale (NARS Siberia/NC10), I’m worrying that it’ll look weird on me. Unfortunately I also don’t have the chance to try it on at a counter. Do you think Luster could work on pale skin, Christine?

Well, it IS a luxury item. When you buy brands like NARS, it’s pretty much a given that a lot of what you’re paying for is the brand.

I gotta say, I love Angelika, Super Orgasm and Oasis! I’ve used samples of Nars glosses before, and I love them! Opaque and non-sticky! Heaven! I just wish they weren’t so spendy!!!

angelika and super orgasm look beautiful, but the price tag is too much for lipgloss for me, unless it was out of this world awesome. but i do love Nars blushes.

Oasis looks pretty but reminds me of Smashbox’s stand-alone hi-shine gloss in a tube. And the amount of pink in super orgasm surprises me…but I still look forward to some lip swatching before I take the plunge.

Oooohhh..super orgasm and angelika look lovely! I wouldn’t buy the blush counterpart of angelika tho but i would love to try the gloss..
