Because this color is so odd, I suspect that NARS will break my heart by discontinuing it. This looks like a color nobody should wear except for on Halloween. In fact, I got my first tube of it as part of a sampler set. I would not have chosen it for myself otherwise. But, this silvery beige gloss is a thing of beauty. I am always on the hunt for lip products that can do anything that comes close to helping me achieve a nude lip. My lips are quite dark. However, I love to wear this with MAC Myth to achieve a gorgeous, neutral lip perfect for cool-toned ladies. The only complaint I have about it (and it's not major) is that it is quite sticky. I wish I could have the color of this gloss with the texture of the Chanel Glossimers.

This ghostly, frozen pigment would be the crux of the ice maiden effect. I am old enough to have participated in that twiggy-shrimpton white lips image, which looked confronting enough back then. (And gosh, looked terrible on me!!)
I got this in a discontinued set.
Whatever Nars did, they nailed an almost impossible yet wearable weird, queer, beautiful, pink beige white lip paint. A theatrical marvel...Harlow the movie queen was a white blonde, with tiny cupids bow lips, imaged for eternity on silver bromide photographic paper. And Nars has captured that essence...lucky you if you can wear this classic evocative cosmetic or even experiment with it!

This just made me look ill and dried my lips out! I got this as a GWP and thank god I didn't shell out anything for it as it didn't do anything flattering for me.

Harlow is one of my favorite shades of NARS gloss, but not because of its color! I completely agree with the previous reviewer -- Harlow is terrifying in the tube, and when used as a regular lip gloss, it would look like a silvery, metallic coating on the lips -- great for a robot / futuristic space costume, not so much for daily wear. However, I love Harlow for adding depth and dimension, not as a regular gloss. It is so pretty when dabbed over lipstick or another lip color -- it can add a luminous sheen and fullness, instead of color. For this reason, it takes ages to use, too. Love!

Terrifying in the tube---kind of a silver, light purply mess, but when applied sparingly this adds amazing depths to your lips. I'd never use it all over like an actual gloss, but I apply the tiniest dab on the center of my lower lip, and blend. Really unique and compliment-drawing!
Would re-purchase, but this would take forever to use up.

This is my all time favorite lipgloss. I have been wearing this for 10 years. My highly pigmented lips love this, its sexy, nude, reflective sexy gloss. Sometimes I re-apply with Striptease so that I don't look too silvery, but this gloss is the best.

I also like this lip gloss alot! I love the color it gives my pink lips, but I can understand why it doesn't work for some. My friend has this color as well, but it really washes her face out. I like wearing this best with a tan and a purple smokey eye.

Well, it actually looks great on me!!!!, but I can imagine lots of people hate it. You have to be careful with this color.

I actually did a lot of research about which NARS lipglosses I wanted to purchase as my first ever gloss and narrowed it down to the Harlow and the Striptease. When I got to the NARS counter the MUA actually suggested that the Harlow was a better suit for me and applied it on my lips. I'm not sure if it was the lighting, the way the MUA applied it or if it was my makeup that day but the Harlow looked great. Unfortunately they had none in stock so I bought the Striptease instead (which was fabulous! I wear it every day) and came back for the Harlow later. But after trying it on again at home I was sooooo put off, my face looked completely drained out, I looked like a corpse with shimmery lips and I avoided using it for a while. However I've recently decided to make it work and teamed the Harlow with some light pink/nude lipsticks and it wasn't half bad.
Apart from the colour the gloss is very high quality but a little on the expensive side (like all NARS products)

I had every intention of rating this a big fat 1, but then I gave it another chance. When I first tried it, I just slathered it on like...well, lipgloss. The results were disastrous. I look like I died while drinking molten silver. I put it up for immediate swap, and it just sat there because, not surprisingly, no one else wanted it, either. If I'm going to have a lipgloss taking up space, I might as well find some kind of use for it. I put on Barbarella, and then dabbed the tiniest amount Harlow right in the center of my lips. Blend it out a bit, step back and...whoa. Are those my lips? I tried it again with Niagara and Dolce Vita, and the results were the same. No longer was I the silver monster - I had a kickass pout! This stuff is meant to highlight and add dimension, not gloss (thanks for the confusion, Francois). Would I repurchase? Probably not, but I don't think I'll have to, considering how little I'll use each time.

I received this gloss in a swap, and have been on the fence about it for awhile. I really like the formula (this is my first NARS gloss), it is long wearing and not too sticky. The color is definitely unusual - a frosty silver-mauve is how I would describe it. It's highly pigmented, so I only wear a little bit for a subtle silvery shine. The color works well on my fair skin, but I have been known to wear frosty blue lipstick on occasion, so if you like color that makes you look healthy and flushed, look elsewhere. I don't think I'll repurchase this color, but I will probably use it up and then buy NARS lip gloss in a different shade.

I actually likethis product and I bought this in a pacl of 3 lipgloss duos from NARS, they all worked well for me. I am NW 45, NC45. I wear this daily for work and the staying power is great. All NARS lipglosses are pretty expensive, and I might not bugy this again, unless I run into some spare money. A little goes a long way.

Well, do you want your lips to look a futuristic shade of silver with glitter chuncks, if yes than this is YOUR shade! If not, like me, you may want to pass of this. The color is very creppy and kinda reminds me of something a punk in the 90's would wear. The reason I am giving this 3 lippies is because I feel as if I may be able to work this over my purple based lipsticks and it may look ok. So then it wouldn't be a total loss. I would never go out and buy this color though. It is very unnatural and unflattering. I received this is a NARS set I purchased. I don't understand why they would put such a weird color in one of their "best" sets but whatever....I know this can't be one of their best sellers! Oh well, maybe it won't be a total loss, then again it may just get pitched...

Purply/Mauvy silver color is what I think Harlow is.
Good for nude lips under some nude lipsticks. Not my perfect lip gloss because it looks horrible by itself on my pigmented lips. I got it as a gift along with NARS Sweet Dreams lip gloss at the other end.

Fortunately this was a gift for being on the Mecca Cosmetica VIP list. Unfortunately, it is of no use to me.
I received a lip gloss duo of Harlow and Striptease. Not sure if this was made as a GWP/sample or if it was actually released as such. I did see these on the floor at Mecca though.
Personally, I think it is a pointless product - both glosses are appalling. They look like the tweenie makeup that is usually packaged in lots of pink, glitter and bedazzler bits. I digress (yet again).
- the name, I thought of Nicole Richie's adorable new bub when I first saw the name. The colour looks great in the tube. A warm frosty pink.
- it's NARS, sold at Mecca and just going to Mecca makes one feel more glam, edgy and beautiful - truly.
- applies like said tweenie makeup. Pasty, chalky and impossible to work with - ie use with lip pencil or over lipstick
- I wiped it off before I could get any further to assess wear and smudge factor.....
- pricy if you were to buy this

okay this was an impulse buy, i regret buying this.
i only bought it because Liv Tyler apparently wears it and i love it. I did try it on over lipsticks and its slightly wearable.
But with my colouring it makes me look like a valley girl or like I'm trying to be sixteen again!
But regret! I love Nars Striptease & Turkish Delight...so I will still buy Nars lipglosses. Just NOT THIS ONE!

Uhhhh... Harlow is definitely a head scratcher. The color would work better if it was more SHEER, less OPAQUE. But I haven't tried layering it, so I will try to manipulate the product to find some use for it. I have the duo wand with Sweet Dreams at the opposite end, and I like that color much better, just FYI.

Well this is a surprise. I never thought I would/could wear a colour like this as I thought it would be way too unflattering on my skin tone. This is a silvery/beige colour with a hint of lavender. Looks good alone on my pigmented lips and is great for toning down a bold lip colour. Different texture than Bloodwork as it is not sticky. A great colour to add to any collection.

This is a very pigmented lip gloss. I would not recommend wearing this color alone; it seems impossible to pull off a beige almost violet color. Also, it seems as if this lip gloss has a very different consistency than the other two NARS lip glosses I own (Orgasm and Sunset Strip) and it isn't as moisturizing. I regret purchasing this lip gloss and I will be returning it to Sephora. NARS lip glosses really seem to be hit or miss.

I have semi-pigmented/pigmented lips and sheered out this gives a pigmented silvered slightly lilacy color with a hint of beige maybe, looks weird and zombie like.What was NARS thinking selling this crap for the price? colors like this should only be allowed to be sold at drugstores for $4 what a rip-off.
