Who knew NARS could do opaque lipgloss?

NARS Strawberry Fields Lip Gloss ($24.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a richly pigmented, near-opaque shade of deep strawberry pink (but I almost want to call it raspberry–the product name makes me want to stay on track, though). It’s the most pigmented lip gloss I’ve ever tried by NARS–and I’m really quite (pleasantly) surprised by it.

Of course, not every lip gloss needs to be opaque, and there is certainly a time and place for even the sheerest glosses. I’ve just come to accept that NARS glosses are generally sheer and that’s that. Strawberry Fields is a dominating shade in comparison to the NARS range. It’s bold and bright without being too much; it will give your lips definition and zero in the focus to them, but it’s not a traffic-stopping shade.

I got about three hours of wear this shade, and then a slight stain that wore on for another hour or two. It was scent- and taste-free (not even a hint of waxiness/plastic!). I do like NARS glosses for their moisturizing properties, too. Though $24 may seem steep for a lip gloss, NARS delivers much more than the average lip gloss does–0.28 oz.–which makes them as expensive (by the ounce) as MAC lipglasses.

RECOMMENDATION: NARS is really stepping it up with their fall collection from the select pieces I’ve tried so far. If you dig opaque lip glosses and have been looking for something in a deep pink shade, Strawberry Fields may be something to check out.

this is so so SO beautiful! I’m not sure which to get dior serum de rouge in ruby or raspberry (i need to swatch in person) or this! either will be a treat so both isn’t an option. I hope if i try this it looks as good on me!

Fabulous colour!! Really beautiful!
I have one question… In the photo, which pencil/eyeliner (green olive) are you wearing on the waterline?
Thanks!

How pretty do you look with that green liner! Lovely, Christine!
This however, is not a gloss I would get for myself. I either talk too much or drink/eat too much, because a gloss usually last me about 20 minutes before it’s all gone! πŸ™‚

Lovely shade
And I’m very interested on that shade under your eyes… looks preety

Christine, when are you planning on starting the fall season series???
I’m looking forward for it =D

I’m in love… will definitely try it out. I was looking at Nars lipglosses yesterday and didn’t feel compelled to pick anything up. I think it was because I was comparing each of them to the awesomeness of Greek Holiday. I just started wearing it after getting it last year and it’s very pretty, especially when the sunlight hits my lips.

Yeah, but Strawberry Fields sounds better than Raspberry Fields, super pretty Christine! Reminds me of Strawberry Fields Forever by the Beatles. πŸ™‚

this is interesting and makes me want to go to sephora and swatch NARS lipglosses! The lipgloss in the container looks so dark, but on your lips it looks really vibrant. Love it!

I really like this gloss, because it seems so pigmented and it would compliment my skin tone well. I have a preference for highly pigmented lipglosses from Nars, like Dolce Vita or Bloodwork.

This shade looks really good on you, Christine. πŸ™‚

You’re welcome! πŸ™‚

I can totally understand why some people can be disappointed in the brand. Unless you swatch the products (or check temptalia for swatches :p), you can’t know if one product is sheer or pigmented. They should specify it in their products’ description.

Maybe you can also try the lip stain glosses (more like liquid lipstick actually). But it’s a hit or miss. It stays put on me; it just doesn’t on my sister. :p I have Sayonara btw.

Wow, I’m chatty. ^^

I just tried Strawberry Fields on today and it’s incredibly pigmented! It’s such a pretty colour and applied lightly, works great as a stain too! The lipgloss looks so good on you! πŸ™‚

ooohhh!! I like!!! b/c it leaves a stain.. and it’s a plus that it’s name is the same as the Beatles’ song which is on my top 10 favorite songs..

Omg!! That is so pretty on you! I absolutely love it. I think you have convinced me to get it, and i don’t even like gloss!!! It reminds me of like a fruit punch color. Love it!

This is so freaking gorgeous! It’s seriously one of the most beautiful shades I have ever worn on my lips. Too bad it’s limited edition. I purchased four tubes because somehow I can’t stand the thougt that I might run out of it one day. Thank you so much for making a review of this one, Christine! πŸ™‚

It looks so pretty! I looked at this lipgloss when I was in London but I didn’t have that much time and the lipgloss is a bit pricey but oh my I feel stupid for not looking a little longer because this colour looks so beautiful!

Oooh, damn, now I feel a lemming coming on for both this and Bougainville…
Why must I always fall for the LEs? *sigh*

Out of curiosity, do you think the two NARS glosses Strawberry Fields and Bouganville are to the Clinique Superbalm shades Currant and Raspberry (respectively) are similar enough to kill that lemming? Obviously the opacity would be considerably greater in the case of the NARS glosses, but I’d like to know if the hues are even somewhat close.
