New NARS du Jour 8.4.10

While I was in sephora looking for the Urban Decay Naked palette I saw that NARS has put out some new lip gloss colors that are exclusive to Sephora. The colors are Angelika, Super Orgasm, Albatross, Luster and Oasis.

At first I went right towards Angelika, the left pinkest color and used a tester wand to try it on. Eh, not so much, I was hoping for a vibrant pink, but it was pretty sheer and stunk like plastic so I passed. Nothing else really screamed out to me so I passed along.

Although, now I am having second doubts and Luster seems to be calling out its orange shimmery goodness to me. I don't know if I will give it. NARS lip glosses are not my favorite, I love the formulas but they smell rancid and for $24 I want a good smelling gloss! Maybe, I will mosey on over to MAC to find a dupe.

I usually find that if I am not initially drawn to it and pass on it, there is a reason and I shouldn't
go back for it!

However, doesn't the display look pretty?

You can check them out online here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P2862&categoryId=C10476

What are your thoughts?
Will you be trying?

  1. I actually bought Angelika and I got the lip gloss trio from Temptalia. Except it's not the trio the order (I'm not receiving it until Friday) says that it's a mini duo: Dolce Vita and Striptease.

    Did you find the Naked palette? I ended up buying it from Ulta online because Sephora sells out like crazy!

  3. That would have to be a no for me. NARS lip glosses don't ever call my name. Their lipsticks however are a whole different story!

  4. I think I'm gonna pass on them. Yes, its cool because they go with the blushes and we all love the blushes, but meh. I don't despise the nars glosses but there are better ones for me. I would rather pay $6 more and get a YSL, those glosses smell amazing! or a chanel glossamer...those look gorgeous over lipstick.

  5. Looks like I'll be visiting Sephora real soon. Ugh I am going to TRY to hold out for the NAKED palette since that's what I'm really dying for!

  6. I think they are pretty but the one that seems worth it to me is actually Luxor. It's a Nordstroms exclusive and is like the Luxor multiple, a sheer opal shine. I like it because it's very unique and has a pink duo chrome to it.

  9. Interesting.... i actually really like the smell of NARS lipglosses. They remind me of barbie dolls. if i'm getting any from this collection, i think it will be albatross, if it's not too frosty

  10. I am totally saddened with NARS at the moment. It has taken almost 2 weeks to ship an order. It was an easy one - no backorders, out of stock, etc. The speed with which they charged my card upon placement of the order was quite impressive. Enough of my boring rant. Most NARS lip products are my kryptonite. I'm sure that I will cave & purchase these after my mental protest! :P

  12. I think I saw them at my Sephora store too and I do indeed need to check them out again. Even though the blushes are the ones that I like and no other NARS proudct attracts me. Even I wanted to try their lipglasses but what you said about the rancid smell, I'll have to pass as well. I love the smell of MAC's lipglasses.
