NARS Sexual Content, Mythic Red, Fever Beat Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches

Sexual Content

NARS Sexual Content Lip Gloss ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a smooth, mostly non-sticky texture that was lightweight and thin, which made it a little harder to spread out evenly during application. It didn’t highlight my lip liens too noticeably but could have gone on more evenly overall. It lasted well for four hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

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.

Mythic Red

NARS Mythic Red Lip Gloss ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with soft, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly with very minimal product that sat in my deeper lip lines (wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance). The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and comfortable to wear with very slight tackiness. It stayed on well for four hours and was lightly moisturizing.

Fever Beat

NARS Fever Beat Lip Gloss ($26.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had a smooth, lightweight consistency that spread without too much difficulty and felt mostly non-sticky. I find that NARS’ glosses tend to have a thinner texture, and part of that might be due to how little gets picked up on the doe-foot applicator for “one swipe.” This shade had nearly opaque pigmentation that went on evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip lines, though there was a little room for improvement still in overall application. If you’re someone who prefers more pigmented gloss, this might work for you, but the brand touts their glosses as “sheer intensity.” It wore well for four and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Arrrgh, FN! Stop with the Asian habit of calling pinks ‘red.’ He did it before with the Mustang lip pencil set. IIRC, the two reds had single names and the two with ‘red’ in the name were pink. That annoys me to the hilt. You expect that with Peripera, and many other KB lip brands, but not Nars. As a non-pink person, I HATE being deceived like that.
