NARS Lippies: Dolce Vita x Orgasm

Though I’m still a huge fan of MAC lippies, I couldn’t resist the urge to sample ones from NARS. I’ve been hearing and reading great reviews on the brand (esp the lipsticks) so on one of my trips to Rustan’s in Alabang Town Center late last year, I decided to grab a couple of tubes. I opted for the popular lipstick shade, Dolce Vita, and another popular shade, Orgasm, but a lip gloss this time.

I noticed that Dolce Vita is a good choice for an everyday lipstick. Once applied, it appears natural and with a great moisture balance. Not too sticky nor did it render my lips chapped or dry with continued use. Good sign.

One of the things I’ve been attached to lately, when it comes to makeup, is a lip gloss. I can’t seem to get rid of this new habit of applying lip gloss after the lippy. The other thing that I picked up (last year, to be exact) is using a lip liner but let’s save that story for another post.

I’ve always been a fan of NARS’ friendliest shade to any skintone, Orgasm. It didn’t disappoint. It neutralised the already “safe” Dolce Vita shade and made the over-all lip makeup look soft. Exactly how I want my lip makeup to look. Natural, soft, and dewy.

So far, I’ve been wearing these lippies more often. I’m quite smitten, save for the occasional lippy transfer on my teeth (price you sometimes pay for dewy lip makeup). I can’t wait to try other NARS lippy shades in the future.

NARS Lip Gloss in Orgasm retailed for Php 1,350.00 and NARS Lipstick in Dolce Vita retailed for Php 1,250.00.

How about you? What do you think of NARS lippies? What shades do you own? Any recos?

  1. Hi Sasha :)

    I also believe that Dolce Vita is a great everyday lipstick shade. While NARS is quite pricey for my budget, it feels so light and pigmented on the lips, and I finish a tube quite quickly. The Orgasm lip gloss looks great too. I’m a fan of their blush.

    You might like Niagara. It’s my favorite lipstick shade. It’s coral pink, but not too bright.
