Product Review: NARS Dolce Vita lipgloss

I'll cut to the chase and go straight to the review of my fave lipgloss - NARS Dolce Vita. Let me start off by showing some pictures.


Dolce Vita is an earthy pinkish-rosey-mauve that does not have any shimmer or sparkles,

thus, looking more natural on the lips.


What I like:
- Definitely MLBB (my-lips-but-better) for me and it is a shade I can wear everyday, be it when I go to work or on a gimmick.
- Moisturizes my lips and my lips doesn't end up flaking, unlike with MAC lipglasses.
- Not super sticky which is just the way I like it. I don't feel comfortable when the lipgloss I'm wearing is as sticky as MAC lipglasses.
- Staying power is pretty decent. I can still see a little color on my lips even after eating or drinking and sort of leaves a very thin layer of moisture that doesn't dry out my lips.
- Locally available.

What I don't like:
- Quite expensive for a lipgloss for PHP1350 at Rustan's.

Overall rating: 4.5/5
Will I buy again? Maybe. I am a sucker for tinted lip balms.

Anyway, to all the mums out there...

  12. i got the lipstick version 'cos i thought that the pay off would be the same as the lipgloss.

    the lipgloss is more pigmented than the former!

    i just wish i could wear lipgloss... i really hate the sticky feeling. :P
