Reviewing Popular Nars Products: Dolce Vita Lipstick, Nars Orgasm Blush and Nars Orgasm Gloss

I have been finding all sorts of new favorites recently. Fortunately, it seems like everything I try lately is a quality item. My recent Nars purchases were really no surprise in that department, since I purchased a couple of Nars’ most popular and well received products. Plus I tend to just love Nars all around anyway! NARS Sheer Lipstick, in Dolce Vita (pictured right) is a wonderful color for me.

This particular lipstick has often been touted in the magazines and from the PR folks as the most universally flattering color available, and I agree that it is pretty close, at least for my pale complexion. The shade is a neutral pinkish mauve that is not too opaque and not too sheer. And the Nars lipsticks always feel comfortable. There are no issues with caking or drying.

I also love the packaging of Nars products. Their containers have a soft, almost spongy feel to them, and the black tubes and cases look quite nice. My only complaint is that I don’t think the Nars lipsticks stay on quite as well as some other brands. I tend to find myself reapplying it a bit more often. I have had the same problem lately with Smashbox lipsticks, and hope it isn’t becoming a trend across my otherwise favorite brands!

NARS Lip Gloss, Orgasm (pictured below/right) is the lip gloss version of the hugely popular, cult classic NARS Orgasm Powder Blush (pictured left). Like the blush, the gloss is a peachy pink shade (more peach than pink) and it is gorgeous! I find that the gloss is a bit less shimmery than the blush, which is a bonus for me, since I always found Nars Orgasm blush to be a bit too much on the shimmery side for me. Plus, I like to avoid overly shimmery glosses and add a separate shimmer product if I want more. There is just more control that way. But if you are looking for a fully matte gloss, be warned, this one still is frosted/shimmery, just less so than the blush in my opinion.

This is quickly becoming a favorite gloss for me. I have read some complaints that it is thick or sticky. It is a bit stickier than some glosses, but I have been OK with it in that department. I would not categorize it as moisturizing though, so if you lean toward the moisturizing glosses, this one likely isn’t for you. If you like the blush, trying the gloss is a must do! Even if you don’t like the blush, the gloss is worth a look.

Want to try several of popular Nars’ products? Take a look at the NARS Artist Palette Compact, Cool, which I came across when putting together the links for this post. It has a nice selection of shades.

Finally, one more piece of useful info: If you are making an online beauty purchase anytime soon, right now you can get a free Beauty.com Train Case and samples with your $100 purchase - while supplies last (important note, drugstore.com purchases do not count toward the $100 threshold). The case includes a number of high quality samples, which I think makes it a pretty nice deal. It is tempting me to shop anyway!
