NARS Relentless is a moderately warm-toned, very light pink with a glitter finish. It is a limited edition lipgloss that retails for $26.00.
NARS Relentless Multi-Use Gloss ($26.00 for 0.16 oz.) has a soft, warm pink tinted base with flecks of gold and pink glitter. It seemed to have a moderate amount of sparkle when swatched, but actual application on my brow bone, cheekbone, and lips proved it to have more sheer to semi-sheer "coverage" from the sparkle.
The consistency felt smooth, lightweight, and velvety--almost like a lipgloss-primer hybrid--which was most noticeable when worn as a lipgloss. As a cheek or brow bone highlighter, the gloss applied best by gentle patting or dabbing with fingertips or using a duo-fiber stippling brush, as these methods disturbed base products the least. I found that on bare skin the wear time was shorter--just shy of seven hours before it moved noticeably--while over foundation, it stayed in place better (closer to eight hours). It's not a product that worked well on the actual lid or near the crease, as it seemed to slide down quickly and get into my lashes, while causing anything else on my lid to crease almost immediately.
When I wore it as a gloss, it was comfortable to apply and to wear, and the sparkles distributed evenly, while the gloss didn't emphasize my lip lines. The shine of the gloss lasted for three hours on me and was lightly hydrating over time, though the sparkles hung around for longer and tended to travel after the shine wore down.
