NARS Lip Lovin'


Another one of my amazingly thoughtful and much appreciated Christmas presents came in the form of the NARS Tech Fashion Lip Gloss Coffret (£25)
I was so excited when the little white box fell in to my lap - boy done good! I'm not normally a lip gloss kinda gal and am much more loyal to a bold matte lipstick instead but I'd been thinking about adding some gloss into my collection for a little while, so this was perfect! The set contains 4 shades, all of which are to die for and definitely more in my colour range. I took no time at all in trying them out and immediately opted to wear the gorgeous red shade (shade IV) that same day. What can I say other than I have been converted! The pigmentation is fantastic and the wand applicator makes applying them so easy!

l-r: Shade III, Shade IV, Shade II, Shade I

I've found in the past that lip glosses are far too gloopy and messy for my liking, as I like to avoid the hair-stuck-to-lip situation as much as I can, but there's something about these little badboys that changed my opinion for the better.
The colours are gorgeous to wear on their own or over similarly coloured lipsticks to add a bit of oomph and to be fair, the staying power is great which I was not expecting. Obviously it doesn't last all day, but a good couple of hours passed before all sign was gone and I had to reapply! 

My favourite shade, surprisingly, is the lightest peachy toned gloss (shade I), which is great for wearing as an alternative to lip balm to dress up those barely there days.
Any downsides? For me, I just wish these were bigger, but I can't really see them running out any time soon! They are a bit on the pricey side too, which isn't ideal if you're buying for yourself, but they're perfect as a gift like in my case! The packaging more than makes up for it though, even the outer box is beaut!


All in all, a jolly good job by my other half and I'll definitely be on the look out to add more lip glosses to my stash now that I've started...any recommendations in the comments below would be fab!

  3. Oh I'm not normally a lipgloss girl either. It's great that you found one that's not gloopy as that's my pet hate!

  4. These look lovely, I'm not a big fan of lip glosses though, especially in windy weather.

  6. Wow this set looks stunning, Shade III looks lovely :) I'm the same when it comes to lip gloss I tend not to wear it very often, and I kick myself for doing so because whilst I love a bold statement lip I also like some gloss hehe.
