I really wanted to like this lipstick. Probably the only reason that I don't like it is because my lips are too pigmented for it to show up properly. On me, it just looks like I'm wearing chapstick. But, like my other NARS lipsticks, it is very moisturizing and even someone with dry lips could wear it without balm underneath.
I am a blue eyed NW10 (NW20 when tanning from a bottle).
I freaking L-O-V-E this lipstick. my HG. Creamy formula. gentle wash of mauve color that matches my cool pale complexion. Never fails to get compliments. I love carrying around the NARS lipstick packaging, and have used this product every day since I purchased in the summer, and after 3 months, it is still halfway there.
Love it. The best MLBB shade I have found to date. The perfect nude lip. I will definitely repurchase.
This is a nice nude lipstick. It is not too pale, not orange , not brown. It looks wonderful with Nars Chihuahua lip gloss, thanks to izzybella's review. I have a cool skin NW20 and pigmented lips, usually nude l/s do not work for me, they wash me out. But I love this one.
A very subtle pink-ish/nude color. Perfect for everyday wear with minimal makeup looks. Also, a great bridal color if your going for a natural look.
I was a bit disappointed with this colour, it just looks so average and like 'nothing' on me. The soft mauve isn't a lot different to my natural lip colour so you can hardly notice when I'm wearing it. I think that because it's so sheer I end up using more which in turn uses it up quicker, which annoys me and makes me want to use it less anyway. I don't use this much now and I probably wouldn't repurchase. Very average.
This is a nice MLBB color for my pigmented lips. It looks very natural and it is slightly sheerish and perfect for a no makeup look or date night as the color won't smear all over your man when you kiss him hehe. I like the fact that this is also very moisturizing as well. I have no need for separate lip blam underneath as I do with matte lipsticks. The color is a nice warm pink neutral and brightens my face up subtly. I had to deduct lippies though because even though it is quite moisturizing it emphasizes dry flakes on my lips, does not last long at ALL and overall just not not very impressive for the price. Average product.
This lippie works with pretty much any color eyeshadow. It's pink but not TOO pink. It's a great neutral every-day color that gives just enough color to liven up my lips but still look natural.
This shade Cruising is defiantely one that I kept trying on over and over again at Sephora, never thought of actually buying til the 15% off thing this week sephora sent out. I finally broke down got it and LOVE it. It is nuetral which means it pairs well with most to all makeup looks I manifest. It looks good and natural pale..In MAC my complexion color would be NW45..it is stunning..I get lots of compliments on the dirty,pale,nude color...
I have gone through several tubes (which is rare for me!) of Cruising -- it is definitely my go-to, everyday, "my lips but better" shade. It's a lovely nude pink that looks great on a variety of complexions -- my own is very fair and cool-ish (NW5-10; NARS Siberia), and Cruising just enhances my complexion and pulls everything together without adding a noticeable pop of color. Some find NARS lipsticks to be drying -- and the Semi-Matte series can be if not layered with balm underneath. Cruising is part of the Sheer series, though, which I do not find to be drying at all. I will definitely buy this again, as it is now one of my staples!
