Brand Spotlight Series – NARS #7

Today, we’re moving away from NARS blushes & having a look at my lone NARS lipstick in Dolce Vita.

NARS Dolce Vita lipstick

I don’t have a lot of experience with NARS lipsticks so I can’t say much – what I’m posting is based on my experience with this one & only lipstick shade.

They say …

This sheer dusty rose lipstick is frequently voted the most “universally flattering” lipstick shade by industry professionals.

Dusty rose which mimics the natural blush of lips.

I say …

According to NARS, I own another cult favourite 😛

NARS Dolce Vita lipstick is essentially my MLBB shade. It gives my lips just that tiny hint of colour without making me look overdone.

I like the NARS lipstick formula for Dolce Vita as it is quite moisturising. According to their website, this is due to the vitamin E content which is nourishing & non-drying. Also, NARS Dolce Vita lipstick is part of their sheer lipstick range meaning that the “long lasting color pigments have been suspended in this translucent formula to provide a sheer, natural tint” and that it does!

The great thing about NARS Dolce Vita lipstick is that it’s buildable. You don’t want to look overdone? Not a problem. A swipe of this gives your lips some colour but not too much. Want to change it to a dramatic lip look? Sure thing – another swipe or two & you’re good to go!

I also think it’s a great beginners’ red lipstick. It’s not too out there that a beginner to red lips would feel self-conscious about in public.
