NARS Lip Gloss in Spring Break Review + Swatches

Hey guys! Today I wanted to share a product that I recently bought. I originally went into Sephora wanting to purchase the Nars Larger than Life lip gloss in Born This Way, a light lilacy-pink gloss. I know full-on lilac lip stick probably won't work for me, but I wanted to embrace the trend on some level so I really wanted to give this a try! When faced with all the NARS glosses, I started to second guess my original decision, of course swatching numerous colors trying to decide which would be the best one to buy. Oddly enough, I ended up with a fairly basic nude gloss. What attracted me was the gold shimmer that I thought would be so nice for a summer!


If I didn't know any better, I would think this was the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer- it is the exact same packing and a very similar color!


What makes this lip gloss slightly different than most is the applicator. It has a short, stiff, paint brush as opposed to the doe foot applicator most glosses have. I actually like this because you can get a really precise application with such a small brush. The downside is you may need a few coats to get the nice, even coverage that you get with the doe foot.


This gloss has nice color payoff for a nude and I love the golden shimmer (although you can't really see it in this picture). The texture is quite sticky, which makes it last for hours, but I know can drive some people crazy. It doesn't bother me too much, and I love the fact that it doesn't rub off as quickly as some of the more "slippery" glosses!


Overall, I really love this lip gloss. You definitely pay for it with a price tag of $26, but I think having a few higher-end products can go so far when it comes to your makeup collection. And what better to invest in than a nude gloss that will never go out of style! 


I hope you guys enjoyed this post! When you are commenting down below I would LOVE to hear any suggestions for future makeup posts-or any types of posts-that would be useful! Thank you! XO

  1. I honestly don't think that product is worth more than $5. Some Nars cosmetics are awesome and worth the price tag but most are not.

  5. I always do this, go with one idea of what i want in mind and come out with something different haha. Oh well you made a good choice here spending the money on something that you like and suits you rather than buying just for the sake of what is on trend (you can so that with cheaper products haha)

    sticky lipglosses really annoy me so i might give this one a miss but the colour is lovely, like you say it is well worth spending money on something you know you will get a lot of use out of.

    1. I'm hoping I will get enough use out of it to justify the price- your right about saving trendy stuff for less expensive drug store brands!

  6. The colour looks lovely but for some reason I never want to invest in expensive lip glosses, I don't really wear them all that much so I tend to stick to more affordable ones! Lovely post & I love your clear swatches! <3

  8. I still haven't tried NARS lip glosses but I really want to! <3 I think that his shade would be too light for me though cuz I am too pale and it may wash me out! :( I will have to check some of the brighter shades :) Great post!

  10. I like sometimes layer lip glosses over lipsticks and to create new look and find perfect combo. This seems like lovely shade.

  14. I always go a little gaga when I see a Nars product (though I have yet to own any *gasp*) although I don't think I would go for this just because sticky lip glosses are one of my makeup pet peeves!
    Do you have any favorite NARS products that stand out above the rest?
