Surprisingly, I have somehow forgotten to review this gloss, despite the fact that it's an everyday staple for me. Easy Lover is a gorgeously shiny, sheer fuchsia gloss that offers the perfect amount of color, even for someone with pretty pigmented lips like myself. It contains no shimmer or glitter - just straightforward color and shine - and in terms of texture I find it a bit thinner and less sticky than MAC Lipglass (although its staying power is certainly comparable). This particular shade of fuchsia is definitely neutral...I don't detect any blue/cool undertones, which makes Easy Lover a particular favorite. Unlike most glosses, I find that it works well even without lip liner (another plus). If you are looking for a low maintenance, versatile fuchsia gloss, then look no further. I'm already on my second tube.

Nars lipglosses are not very consistent in texture, color, or opacity. This is a problem, but if you can see them in store and swatch on your hand, I seriously recommend you do that.
I haven't used lipgloss for years, and never found any that I personally liked or didn't make my lips peel. My lips do tend to be quite sensitive, and while Nars lipgloss smell absolutely putrid... And I can't even tell if they're simply unscented or have turned.... They make my lips so moisturized and I've not even used lip balm for WEEKS! What is this madness? (I've heard it's not a good thing to constantly use balm anyway, but this allows me to use lip products I like, and have color on my lips, without constant peeling and wreckage of my lips.)
Easy Lover is one of the stickier glosses that last a lot longer than others. It has high-shine, sheer to medium see-thru hot pink, a very easy color to dupe in multiple lines, but the formula works for me. I was tempted (genuinely) to buy a gloss again after liking my "deep throat" gloss from a Christmas set from Nars, and after watching some Tween-y television (Seriously, it's true!) I got tempted to venture into the glossy lip look again.
I mixed this lipgloss for a long time with orange-red lipsticks to get that vibrant red-pink-orange lip look that I personally like and cannot achieve from a single lipstick unfortunately, and do this to achieve the look I like without purchasing any other products.
The only other line of gloss that doesn't peel my lips [and lasts more than 30 seconds, ahem Dior] is Chanel glossimers. I prefer the Nars ones, though they're around the same price.
4 lippies for the packaging because sometimes, goop does accumulate on the sides. I'm not used to using lipglosses (Haven't for /years/) so maybe all of them do that over time? I'm not sure. Easy to clean off though.

This is a pink-fuscia that goes on the lips very sheer. The color is very "meh", and this is a really easy color to dupe. Easy Lover leaves a really nice tinted glossy shine on the lips, however it feels really thick and heavy on. Will not be repurchasing.

Got this thinking it was a lively fuschia, it went straight to the oddest purple in the world on me. My sister tried it, we have different coloring, did the same for her. And it's gloppy. Disappointment in a tube. It went back.

I may have to buy another tube of this as back up! My favorite lip gloss for the summer! It's a sheer hot pink that makes my face light up and look younger. Really glossy without all the stickiness. It's not a hooker hot pink either. LOL! It's very wearable and pretty much anyone can pull it off. I like to apply two layers of it to deepen up the color. If you've always wanted to wear a hot pink gloss, but was leary, you MUST try this! You won't be disappointed! $24 for one tube.

I got this on a whim during a trip to NYC. The color it brings to my pale, bluish lips is lovely. It is truly a swipe and go color for me because it is much sheerer on the lips than it looks in the tube. It is too expensive to ever replace, so I use sparingly to bring back memories of a happy time.

Very sheer, strong, deep pink. Looks more intimidating in the tube than it actually is on the lips. It's a lovely shade, but I received it in a kit and will likely not repurchase on its own. It's a pretty summer color, but not remarkable enough for me to purchase again, especially not for $25 which is what I believe NARS glosses cost.

I fell in LOVE w/Revolt (clear purple jelly, which is now d/c) & then I read all the great reviews about Easy Lover (such a great name!), so I went to Sephora & tested it out. I'm glad it's a steady part of the Nars gloss line.
Seriously too expensive for my taste, however, so I'll try to obtain some via cheaper routes if possible. $24 for a lipgloss when I already own more glosses & lipsticks than I'll ever finish wearing for the rest of my life...well that's just too much. The color is beautiful, the transparency is fabulous (I prefer sheer over opacity), & the high sticky factor is very much to my liking...it's actually less sticky than Revolt, truthfully...it has the same staying power & wearability but feels creamier on the lips somehow. It's super-transparent but the lovely pink shows up & complements any skintone, I think. Very moisturizing! Super-wet vinyl glossy shine, honey-texture formula can be muted to a more soft & subtle dewyness w/a little blotting or just the most minimal application. I love that a little bit of this product goes such a long way.
The sheer tone of bright bubblegum pink that it gives looks just so healthy, vibrant & youthful, not childish or garish. It's very fresh & especially wonderful in Spring (think blossoming freshness). If I have no alternative choices, I'll plunk down the $24 just to have a tube of it (but I'd rather not).

It looks like a shocking fuschia pink color in the tube - something I would have never grabbed. But I was determined to try all of NARS l/g - and I'm glad I did. The color turned out to be very sheer - and just a hint of pink on my lips. Very pretty and makes me look fresh. To boost the color, I'd normally wear a pink lipstick underneath.

Really love the shade and texture once it settles. The point off is for the initial stickiness that makes my hair stick to my lips when its windy. After a minute, it becomes more balm-like and manageable. Lasting power is a bit better than average. The greasepaint smell means I lick it off less and it fades quickly, but its surprising for a high-profile company like Nars. It's not a big issue for me, but may be for others. I've been looking for this bright, sheer pink ever since Clinique changed the formula for Kissyfit to the longwearing gloss and into a sticky mess. I have very pale yellow skin, dark hair and pigmented lips- this adds a sheer, brightening pop that is especially needed in the winter. UPDATE: upgrading this, as the initial stickiness and smell fades fast and I find I reach for this a lot. Its always in my pocket and it surprisingly goes with everything. It moisturizes and brightens my pale face without being overpowering. I lost it for a few days and panicked. My lips were dry, I was sick and looked terrible- I almost went to buy a new one! Most wearable with black, pinks and greys.
