Review for: Dolce Vita (dusty rose - sheer finish) more...
I got this product in a mini size with another NARS lipstick. Although the lipstick is not bad, I was a little underwhelmed. This lipstick is a gorgeous color but it is very sheer on the lips, more like a tinted balm than a traditional lipstick. I have a blush in the same color and I was hoping they would go together, but the lipstick is definitely best for light makeup days. The color on the lips is pretty, but not what I was looking for.

I have this lipstick but in the shade Dolce Vita, it is much more like a tinted balm than a lipstick, not much pigment. Which I guess makes sense because "sheer."

Mitzi is my perfect "my lips but better" shade. It's great if you just want a touch of color and shine to look polished at the office or grabbing dinner with friends. It's pretty sheer, and I've heard it doesn't show up very well on highly-pigmented lips, but it's exactly what I need on mine (not very pigmented on their own). For reference, I have fair to medium skin tone without tanning (Bare Minerals "Fair" is just a bit light on me; Burberry Trench No.01 is almost a perfect match) with neutral undertones.

This is a holy grail. I’m talking ‘could be one of my favorite makeup products of all time’ holy grail. One of the main struggles I encounter with ultra-pale skin is finding a lipstick that does not look too clown-y on me without being so light that it makes my lips look lifeless. That’s where nars sheer lipstick comes in. “Cruising” is the perfect “my lips but better” shade for me. I feel great and confident after swiping this on. The sheer formula is great for me, as I am a student and only wear light, natural makeup. There’s nothing like the confidence you get after putting on the perfect lipstick shade! I don’t think I will ever stop buying this product.

Review for: Shrinagar (metallic raspberry - sheer finish) more...
I love this lipstick shade, it goes on smooth and its also very pigmented, It lasts awhile too. I bought it from Sephora awhile ago. The lipstick is easy to apply, and its also very moisturizing to the lips. I would definitely buy this product again and in other colors.

Review for: Cruising (nude pink - sheer finish) more...
Yesssss!!! I love this color! This is A great staple lipstick. The nude sheer color is what every make up bag needs! It glides on the lip, but is not too heavy of an application. I purchased mine at Sephora! They had plenty of shades to choose from.

Review for: Cruising (nude pink - sheer finish) more...
Light weight. When I wear it I almost can’t tell I have it on due to the color or my lips and the color of the stick. Like that it’s supper creamy. Feels super hydrating almost like a lip balm. Wear time not bad for a cream lipstick

Review for: Roman Holiday (delicate pastel pink - sheer finish) more...
This pink is to die for, so cute! It makes me happy just putting it on! The formula is slick but not sticky, sheer and buildable. Very flattering with my fair skin. The packaging is so chic, love the velvety texture on the case.

this lip color would be a worthy addition to your kit, especially red is being one of the hottest lipstick color trends at the moment. It works with all skin tones but pops out the best in a medium is worth buying. It last long. I love it’s creamy texture.

This product in the shade dolce vita gives the perfect amount of a flush of light pink on the lips and a decent amount of moisture. It is the type of lipstick you can just throw in your purse and put on without a mirror.

Is it bizarre that in addition to the texture of this lipstick, I also am attracted to the scent? It reminds me if vanilla ice cream in a waffle cone and just makes me smile! And what a beautiful smile I have with this shade on.

I think this is a pretty color. Would it go well with a dark complexion? Also is it a bold color or a more subtle color when applied?

How is the formula for these? Do they last all day or do you need to reapply throughout the day?
