I've swatched my collection below. They do appear sheer on my skin, however the colors are more pronounced on the natural pink of my lips. Each tint is quite different from the next. NARS does a really good job of describing them, so forgive me if my description is similar. NARS Love devotion lipstick is a really pretty guava. It's perfect for summer; I've been pairing it with all my warmer toned and peach/orange based looks. Can you believe I didn't have a pinky coral lipstick before this? Was I living under a rock? NARS Belle de Jour lipstick is famous for currying Kim Kardashian's favor. The girl knows makeup, because I love it too. It's a beautiful peachy beige nude. I've worn this more times than I can count. NARS Pago Pago lipstick is a light pink with silver sparkles. It's actually quite pale on the lips and I'd prefer no sparkles even though they make only a miniscule contribution. I wore this a lot the summer I first got it. I haven't worn it much recently, but I still like it. NARS Mayflower lipstick is a strawberry pink with a small amount of silver sparkle. This is perfect for naturally pretty pink lips. It's a fresher my-lips-but-better alternative to Dolce Vita. NARS Dolce Vita lipstick is so many beauties' holy grail color, and rightfully so. I wasn't too fond of this when I first reviewed Dolce Vita (see here). It's too dark when I have flushed lips, but when I have pale healthier lips it does look pretty. That said, this is probably still more of a fall season color for me.
Thanks for reading! Now that it's summer I'm especially favoring sheer lips. When it comes to lips and other cosmetics, I'm pretty focused and brand faithful. Me, a NARS fan? Nah, more like a fanatic. When I find something I like I stick to it because I know I'll use it! Do you have a favorite lipstick formula or brand? What are you favorite NARS lipstick colors?
