NARS x Christopher Kane Lip Glosses

NARS Glow Pink Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “sheer fuchsia.” It’s a sheer, fuchsia-tinted gloss that looks more like a stain once applied. For as sheer as it seems, it actually darkened and altered my natural lip color considerably, though I suspect those with naturally redder lips may not find the effect as noticeable. The gloss has a light-medium thick quality that is mostly non-tacky and smooth, but the way it stains/applies looks a bit uneven. The glossiness lasted for two hours, and it had worn down to a very subtle stain at that point that was gone by the fourth hour. I found the formula to be neither drying nor hydrating.

NARS Mezmer Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “sheer neon pink.” It’s a brightened, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a glossy shine. It is a darker, brighter take on Glow Pink. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that didn’t cover evenly but did stain. The texture was smooth and mostly non-tacky, and it was comfortable to wear. It lasted for three and a half hours on me. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Nebulous Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “neon coral.” It’s an orange-coral with warm undertones and a muted quality to it. I was surprised it wasn’t also described as sheer like the previous two shades. It is fairly sheer but produces a noticeable stained look to the lips, and despite looking completely different when swatched on the skin, the resulting stain (on my lips) is surprisingly similar to Glow Pink. It had the same slightly uneven result on as well. It lasted for three hours on me. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

NARS Nucleus Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “seashell pink.” It’s a light, pinky beige with cool undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had a milky quality to it, so there was some settling into lip lines, though it went on more evenly than a lot of similarly hued shades. It lasted for two and a half hours on me, and the formula was neither drying nor hydrating, but it was comfortable to wear. Get comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

I was surprised that every single shade had a pretty comparable dupe within the permanent range of NARS Lipgloss, so you may want to check your stash if you have a lot of their permanent glosses in your stash.

Meh, these are too sheer for me. My lips have very little color, so I need something that has some pigment or I look washed out. And disappointing to hear that many of these LE shades have dupes in the permanent collection. But then again, NARS has so many glosses that I guess you run into similar colors.

Exactly! The packaging is nice, the color is nice… in the tube. But… it’s still too sheer to justify me purchasing it. Because I’d literally just be paying for packaging. The colors are non existent on me.

I had a feeling none of these would be opaque lol. The pink and orange ones are still very pretty though

I know most wont like it, but i think nucleus makes you look so youthful!! Its not the trendiest shade but if you compare the overall effect it has on your face to darker shades you look years younger. My ex always used to say ,when id put on a lipstick darker than my natural lips “you just aged 10 years”
