NARS Lipgloss in Scandal

I don’t know how many times I’ve mentioned that I’m not a big fan of lip glosses. Trying this out wasn’t a sudden change of heart but more of a “maybe-it-will-work-this-time” kind of thing.

Because makeup shops here in San Fernando, Pampanga are very limited, I kind of have resulted into buying online. Pick a few makeup products from Beauty Manila, shop Korean skin care products at Sephora, or in this case buy the NARS Lipgloss your friend bought online but didn't work on her. Yep, that's how I ended up with this beauty.

Sophisticated shine and stunning color, every day every way. NARS Lip Gloss lavishes lips in a full spectrum of shades. Enriched with nourishing ingredients for long-lasting smooth, comfortable wear. The doe-foot applicator smoothly glides across lips with comfort and precision.”

The Good Bits:

Sheer Crushed Cherry” is how NARS described this shade and in my own opinion, it did live up to that description. I was also impressed at how it didn’t feel sticky on the lips at all. One of the main reasons why I hate wearing lip gloss is that they can sometimes be ridiculously glossy (in a you-wouldn’t-find-flattering kind of glossiness), sticky, and heavy; but this one isn’t one of those lip gloss products. It made my lips look naturally glossed and the tint is just enough to give the wearer a youthful and light glow. True enough, the doe-foot applicator smoothly glides on your lips so you won’t have a hard time using this product whether you’re a pro or not. The packaging is simple and classy. That’s actually one of the things I admire with brands such as MAC, NARS, and Laura Mercier just to name a few. Packaging matters a bit to me. I actually include this in my travel makeup essentials if I'd want that quick non-sticky glossy feel on my lips.

The Bad Bits:

Because it’s a lip gloss, you wouldn’t really expect for it to last the whole day. It lasted for like 4-5 hours on my lips. So this product won’t be my go-to lip product since I’m the kind of girl who’s always on the go and touch-ups can be such a hassle for me.


Freshly applied Scandal! ;)
This is, by far, my most favorite lip gloss. And nope, I still did not have a change of heart. I’m giving this product a rating of 8/10. I might be a bit bias though because lip glosses really aren’t my cup of tea. Although combined with my favorite lipsticks such as my Chanel or my Lipstick Queen, this can be a more awesome product. Since it doesn’t feel too oily and heavy on the lips, using other products with it will be a good idea. This will help give your lips that youthful glow and shine.

How about you, do you fancy lip glosses?


  1. I have yet to try NARS but I have heard a lot of people rave about it! I cant believe how well it lasted for a gloss!

  2. Wow it's so pretty! Love the colour. Gemma x

  3. Amazing color! Looks so good on you! :D

  4. I tried a gloss from NARS years ago and I got a really bad allergic reaction. So bad that lips were extremely swollen and I had to see an allergist. His nurse tried to convince me that they looked fab, but they were not normal, haha. It looked like I had a really bad filler done. I was so upset because I loved the color and texture of the gloss, but I'm SO darn sensitive, to the point that it's really annoying! Anyway, this red color is simply gorgeous on you and looks great for an everyday color. You also have such a gorgeous smile! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you're having the best start to your week so far!



  5. The color of this lip gloss is beautiful, too bad it didn't last as long as you would've liked. I think 4-5 hours it still pretty good though!

  8. Such a pretty color, looks so cute on you :) x

  9. The color of this lip gloss looks very pretty on you!


  10. Not to keen on lipsticks either, but as you said, with lipsticks they're more wearable! Xx


  11. THANK YOU so much for your last comment! I will try to check out these phillipine brands when I am on the phillipines. I am always curious about local products. The gloss suits you very well! I am actually not that much into gloss but prefer lipsticks.

  12. I'm a sucker for anything by NARS. Even though the lipgloss doesn't last all day, it still looks beautiful on you!

  13. The shade is pretty but I dislike lip gloss and the only ones I wear is NYX Butter Gloss and that too, very rarely. :-/

    1. I also like the shade but I'm more of a matte girl. xD

  14. Such a pretty shade. I haven't tried many glosses from NARS. My HG formula is the Marc Jacobs lip glosses and I love the Dior ones too.


  15. This gloss is such a pretty color- I like how it's just got a slight tinge. I agree that the downfall of lipglosses is that they don't last long though

    1. That's why I have always been a matte girl ;)
