Apart from being beauty bloggers, several members of our team are also professional klutzes. Due to the large number of things we’ve broken – be it vases or bones, we constantly dream of time machines that would help us go back and stop the wreckage! And, if there was one lip gloss we would wear when traveling back in time, it would definitely be NARS Lip Gloss in ‘Vent Salé’.
The gloss comes bottled in a transparent tube, with a matte black cap. The doe-foot applicator is the hero of the packaging, as it provides smooth and even application. The shade name is mentioned on a sticker below the tube.
The gloss glided easily on to our lips, without any tugging or streaking. Like most long lasting glosses, this one too had a slight tackiness to it. ‘Vent Salé’ is described as a ‘silver highlight’. On our lips, it took on a futuristic, almost metallic, silvery shade. The colour leans more towards the cooler side, so those who are warm-toned may need to pair it over another lipstick. A single swipe provides a semi-opaque, shimmery finish.
We tested out the gloss, both alone and on top of another lip colour. The product stayed glossy and true to colour for a good 3 hours, without any feathering. We absolutely adore the fact that it did not dry our lips out! However, the gloss not completely transfer-proof, so you may require a few touch ups if you are planning to eat.
High on shine, hydrating and undoubtedly eye-catching, this gloss is one of a kind. We prefer to use it on top of our lipsticks to highlight and plump up our lips, but feel free to rock this shade for a night about town. Now, please excuse us while we draw up plans for our time machine.
