I have a handful of NARS* lipglosses, and while they're all pretty, they're also all pretty sheer. Not Strawberry Fields, though, which is part of the Fall collection inspired by Daphne Guinness. This "strawberry" shade packs a real (fruit) punch!
NARS - Strawberry Fields
Color: While the product name contains "strawberry", a better descriptive is "rasberry". I suppose technically this is a cream lipgloss, since it has no shimmer. The shade is nearly-opaque, but I was able to build it to full opacity.
Application: Creamy, with no scent that I can discern. It goes on smoothly with no streaks or patchiness. Definitely not tacky or slippery: it's somewhere in between those and quite comfortable to wear.
Wear: I got about 3 hours, and it only half-faded by the end of a sandwich. (That's a very scientific technique: The Turkey Sammich test.)
Notes: I strongly recommend a lip pencil with this gloss, because even though it's not slippery and doesn't migrate, it's intense enough of a color that it needs to be put on fairly precisely. It is also excellent over lipsticks!
Also in the Fall '10 collection: Doucer Blush (soft pink-brown); Daphne, Mangrove, and Coconut Grove eyeshadows (deep blue-violet; yellow-lime; and chocolate-taupe, respectively); Rouge Basque lipstick (brick red); Palladium Soft Touch Shadow Pencil (sparkling turquoise); and eyeshadow duos in Tzarine (platinum gold with silver reflects + steel grey) and Rajasthan (glazed almond and cool charcoal).
Is this just the shade for which you've been searching? Too bright for your tastes? Would you like to share some fruit salad with me?
