Muse

NARS Muse Photogloss Lip Lacquer ($26.00 for oz.) is a bright, medium gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a sparkling finish. It had medium coverage with lots of shimmer in both fine and medium sizes. The gloss could have spread more evenly across the lips, and I did have trouble with a bit of the color sinking into my lip lines. It was certainly wearable on its own but may be better layered over another lip color. The consistency was light-medium in weight with some tackiness present. It lasted for four and a half hours on me but was hydrating.

Formula Overview

$26.00/0.18 oz. - $144.44 Per Ounce

The Photogloss Lip Lacquer formula is supposed to have "saturated color" with "high-shine." All four shades had medium or greater coverage with a light-medium thickness and a fair amount of tackiness, which helped them last longer (four to five hours) and stay in place better. They did not seem to have any scent or taste from what I could discern. The formula was lightly hydrating over time.

Off Limits

NARS Off Limits Photogloss Lip Lacquer ($26.00 for oz.) is a deep fuchsia with subtle, cool undertones and lighter fuchsia and pink sparkle. The gloss had nearly opaque coverage in a single layer, while the texture was smooth, light-medium in thickness, and moderately tacky but never felt heavy or goopy to me. It lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Zambeze

NARS Zambeze Photogloss Lip Lacquer ($26.00 for oz.) is a slightly muted, medium peachy brown with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. It had great pigmentation in a single layer, and it applied fairly evenly without visible streaking, but there was color that seemed to pull around and sink into my lip lines. On me, the gloss stayed on well for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing.

Kiki

NARS Kiki Photogloss Lip Lacquer ($26.00 for oz.) is a dark, reddish burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied decently, but it could have been more even, though it did not seem to pull into my lip lines as badly as a lot of these types of shades due when in a gloss formula. The consistency was light-medium in thickness with moderate tackiness, but I found it comfortable to wear over the five and a half hours it lasted for as it was on the hydrating side.

I am loving Off Limits! Definitely a bit of an unexpected shade for winter, but I don’t really care. I’d wear it anyhow!

I like Kiki, too. But feel that I am covered in that shade range with last year’s VLG set thru Sephora.

I think I would like Muse and Zambeze on top of regular lipstick to change colors. Off Limits is great on it’s own. Kiki is nice on you but too dark for me.
