When i first recieved this product i was scared by the color. When i decided to play around and try it i was very suprised on how nice it actually was on my lips. this is great for anyone who wants to stand out and be bold. It makes my fair skin appear porcelain. nice!

Bilitis is a blood red cool toned lipgloss. A sweet MA gave this to me as a GWP a while ago and I've been trying to make it work. It's too fussy and high maintenance for me unfortunately. Applied straight from the tube the color is very deep and dark, a few steps lighter than the tube but it's very bloody red. I like reds but prefer the cherry red or berry red family. So I need to …Read more

Great vamp color. Comes off way more red than purple(like the tube). Super sexy dark lips. Reminds me of the NARS discontinued lipstick Cabaret.

This goes on as a beautiful, but much too deep red for my PPP face. I looked like Snow White (bad). But it made my teeth look super white (good)! Still, it was a bit too close to clownish for me. Still, if you like red lipstick you might like this.

I love the Nars lipgloss tubes but this one is different than most of my other ones. Most of mine are super sticky and shimmery and wet looking. Bilitis is much more dry. Its not as sticky and only slightly moist/glossy looking. I feel like i need a clear gloss or shimmery beige over the top. But on the plus side, this red really works great with my skin tone. I am a light olive nc30 …Read more

Unlike most Nars shades, I wouldn't describe this one as universally flattering. The brown undertones give lips a dull appearance. I would prefer more shimmer.

This is a very thick, pigmented lip gloss. It reminds me of liquid liptick. The color is like rosy red. I don't know why, but I don't really like it.. maybe because it's not GLOSSY. It is literally like a thick lipstick. I always feel like I have to apply clear gloss over it to get it shinier and sheerer. But the color is worth it... it's the perfect "vampy" red …Read more

This is a staple gloss cause of the colour, quality, and last quality. I'm a MAC NC30 and I find this to be a complex colour. Not cause of any irridescence but rather the colour can adapt to me! <br>
If the colour is layered, the colour is a deep glossy cranberry. If I use it blotted, it's a muted raspberry. If I use with one coat, it's a cool red. <br>

This is a deep bloodied rose shade that looks uber-intense applied straight, it made me look like quite the vampire hooker with my PPP skin. But I toned it down with Harlow, and it became more manageable, but still not my color. So then I tried to put it on very (read very very) lightly with a lip brush, and it was a nice deep rose. Still a little to dark for my everyday wear, but not so …Read more

This is a dark burgundy with no shimmer. I think it is a bit too dark for me but I will work with my application technique a bit more. NARS glosses have GREAT staying power and they don't gravitate off of my lips, a big pet peeve of mine. I love the NARS black rubberized packaging. This color is really more like a liquid lipstick than a gloss but I can compensate for the thickness by …Read more
