Lipstick -NARS Cosmetics -Sheer Lipstick - Gipsy

on 11/19/2018 1:25:00 PM


The Nars sheers are among my favorite in the entire world of lipstick. They’re been around for a long time and are now overshadowed by newer formulas and brands, but the ones I own (Gipsy, Shrinagar, and Damage) are absolutely perfect lipsticks. I feel like a broken record, but the older Nars lipstick line has some of the most wondrous and interesting colors. Every shade has something special about it that differentiates it from possible dupes. It’s real artistry and it makes me feel like they were created for love vs money.

Anyway, Gipsy is a muted neutral red that’s so easy to wear and perfect for both work and going out. You can manipulate it from a light rosy flush to medium-opaque with how many layers you apply. It feels comfortable on, is moisturizing—doesn’t last crazy long but it’s not bad at ALL for a sheer. It sinks in a bit and leaves a slight stain. It leans more rust than berry, but overall it’s just a sheer browny red. I see why someone compared it to MAC Hot Tahiti (another one of my absolute favorites tbh) but I think HT has more of a berry tone. It’s easy to apply, reapply, and wear all day without having to stress about it. It’s not cheap obviously.

Gipsy is a conceptual shade; I’m sure it was literally inspired by all the name conjures up. It makes me feel exotic and sensual without feeling like I’m trying too hard or like I look too made up. For reference, I have dark hair/eyes and pale olive skin and prefer a medium-natural look. It gives a juicy and mysterious aura to your face.

These are all the NARS sheer lipsticks (for my reference and yours!):

Many, especially the lighter shades, are very very sheer. The deeper shades are definitely more robust. If you have darker skin, I strongly urge you to try Tanganyka!

Mascara -NARS Cosmetics -Climax

on 11/18/2018 5:56:00 PM


Bought this mascara during its recent launch and I just love it! It’s a wet formula, coats the lashes evenly, I don’t get much clumping with this formula even after multiple applications. Adds good length and volume, lashes are nicely separated.I don’t notice flaking, maybe some smudging but not nearly bad as some other mascaras I’ve tried ie: UD perversion mascara. The formula washes off easily, no clinging residue. The formula is non irritating for me which is a bonus. This mascara has immediately gained HG status with me as I am very particular with my mascaras only a few brands make the cut in my makeup arsenal. On my second tube...

Liquid -NARS Cosmetics -Sheer Glow Foundation


The packaging has no pump and the foundation is too expensive for this kind of packaging. The was matched to Deauville but it was not olive enough for me. I found it cakey. Really disliked.

Really good pigments that last a long time. Weirdly the NARS bronzer breaks me out terribly but this doesnt.

Lips -NARS Cosmetics -Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien


cant use my usual thick pencil sharpener to sharpen it, the color is not anything special on my yellow based light skin, the formula is light and smooth feeling, it's like tinted balm with its sheerness as well and feel would repurchase but not a bad product just not my preference
