Product Review: NARS Lip Gloss/Lip Stain Gloss Duo

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: NARS
Name: Lip Gloss/Lip Stain Gloss Duo
Size: 0.17 fl oz / 5 ml (x 2)
Price: approximately $28 CAD / $28 USD

Shade Tried: Stolen Kisses (gloss)/Pampa (stain)

A double-ended tube of lip gloss and stain from NARS that "streamlines your makeup routine by offering two of its best-selling products together in one convenient item." (from Sephora website)

I love lip gloss, but I generally don't use stains, so wasn't sure exactly what to expect, but this was quite easy to get used to.

To Purr About:
- the stain is super light, in an almost unbelievable way. when i was applying it, it didn't feel like anything was going on at all
- the stain delivers deep colour and long staying power
- the matching gloss worked really well with the shade of stain
- gloss was very light to apply and was not sticky or thick at all
- love the sponge tip applcator
- packaging (even the part I thought was glass) has that slight rubbery feel that is on all the other NARS packaging I've tried, which I love

Claws Out:
- a little expensive compared to what I would normally spend on a lip product
- only available in 4 duos

Final Comments:
Like their lipstick, I have fallen in love with NARS' lipgloss. It seems that this line is quickly becoming one of my favourites in the lip product category. Both the stain and gloss are extremely light and easy to wear and the colours are very nice. I love the rubbery feel of NARS packaging. Although this product is only available in 4 shades, they are all very neutral and probably would work for most skin tones.

Rating (out of 5):
