I will admit; I'm a sucker for product names and kim kardashian. I heard so many things about the gloss, and that no one could seem to find a close enough dupe, so I bought it. I don't own any other nars glosses. The scent/taste is quite odd. Plastic-y? Don't know why but it reminds me of a furniture store. On bare lips, I would apply one coat and even scrape some off before. Too much can look pretty gross as it will settle into lines and pool in areas. But a thin thin coat on my bare lips can look quite nice. But this gloss looks much better over lipstick. Personally I like it best over beiegey nudes. Yes it's overhyped but still a great color.

I just got this oh-so-famous lipgloss yesterday. I toiled for a long time with getting this, I bought dupe after dupe. It is a light pink like no other. The CLOSEST dupe I found was the Sephora brand gloss in baby doll pink. After many bad reviews saying the smell, taste and consistency were awful, I just wasn't sure whether to take the plunge. On to the review. I am nc15 with cool undertones. I love it so far. It is not my favorite smell as far as glosses go. I can see why people have a love/hate relationship with it. It goes wonderfully over my nude and light Pink lipsticks. I am a huge fan of miss Nicole Guerriero on YouTube and she inspires me to try new products. She wears Turkish Delight a lot and I knew if I didn't get it I would regret it. Please give it a try, a swatch in the store. Yes it's expensive, yes it's a little strange smelling, but I promise you will never find a lip gloss like this one.

Like many others I purchased this lippy bc he rather infamous Kim Kardashian is kown for wearing this specifically color and brand. Say what you want about that woman but her make up is always 100% FLAWLESS, so I was excited to try this. I do like it and wear it with MAC Angel lipstick. It is a beautiful color combo!

I am a big fan of Kim Kardashian's Make up so I bought this just because she said she liked it and used it. God it taught me a big lesson to not get fooled again. I literally wasted nearly £20 pounds on a lip gloss…REALLY!? And theres nothing AMAZING about it. Sure, its a gorgeous light pink colour…but you can definately find numerous dupes in drug storesssssssss. Sorry, this lipgloss just annoys me. lol

Plus, I have to wear this lipgloss on top of a darker pink lipstick or I'll just look washed out as I'm medium dark skin.

To top it off, I've only used this lipgloss like 3 times max? It's not even one of my favourites to use. sigh.

Beautiful baby doll pink lip gloss that is Kim's Kardashians favorite. It looks great on dark skin brunette, and light skin blonde. Amazing color, bit pricy though.

I am very fond of Nars lipgloss, but this one just doesn't do it for me. I somehow ended up with 3 "travel size" tubes. In the summer when I'm darker, I looked sick when I wore it, and now that my "winter skin tone" is in (I'm NW30-35in the summer, nw20-25 in winter) it still washes me out. The color is beautiful in the tube, it has the same quality and consistency as most of nars glosses, it just doesn't look good on me ;(

Nars turkish delight is a gorgeous very light baby pink. Maybe people got bad ones? because mine has no scent at all and I don't think it is suppose to have a scent. When wearing this gloss it is best to do a smokey eye/ bronze look because it can wash you out. If you have been obsessing over it just buy it. The time it takes you to find a dub you could of been doing something else. Gorgeous color, good formula, wish it had a sweet scent like mac, overall great gloss if you are looking to splurge.

I am not generally a fan of lip glosses as I am a compulsive lip balm user and find glosses are generally too sticky feeling or short-lasting to use.

That said, this is the nicest-wearing, most velvety gloss I've ever used. I am fair skinned, cool toned with freckles and dark auburn hair. My bare lips are a pale pink. I have used this on top of MAC's 'Party Line' and alone and am very happy with its colouration and formula. Both applications have left my lips nicely moisturized and glossy for hours, IF I do not eat anything.

Pros: Formula feels very luxe, not sticky, colour is sheer enough to be used alone or on top of lipstick, colour is buildable, packaging feels lovely and is made of a soft-touch material.

Cons: Transfers, decreases wear time of colours beneath, can be too light for certain looks and skin tones, is very expensive.

I really enjoy this product and will certainly use it until it is gone. That said, I received it as a part of a lip set and will not be purchasing this again, as the price is pretty high for a product that I do not generally use. As I tend to stick to balms and lipstick, this is more of an indulgence than a go-to product.

I got what appears to be nearly a full size (or very generous sample) of this in the latest Sephora Give Me Some Lip kit. I had to laugh when I applied it. It looked like I was putting white glue on my lips. I can't imagine who this looks good on....I am pale, with basically no lip color and a golden skin tone, and this couldn't possibly look WORSE on me, so maybe if you're African-American with deeply colored lips and a cool skin tone (my polar opposite) it would look fab! After I was able to stop laughing, I wiped it off immediately and added the gloss to my Halloween makeup kit. If I decide to go as a zombie this year it will work perfectly, because this made me look like a corpse.
