Product Review: NARS Lip Gloss/Lip Stain Duo

For the Holiday 2007 season, Nars launched its beautiful Siren Song Collection. I've been a busy bee creating different looks with all of the colors, but the one product I just can't seem to make friends with is the Lip Gloss/Lip Stain Gloss Duos.

I'm a lover of most makeup pairs because of their great value, and I certainly haven't met a Nars product that I didn't like, but my experience with the Indian Red Lip Stain side of my duo was a colossal disaster. While one side is your typical thick and sticky gloss, the other side has a drastically different consistency and frankly, I just don't understand it.

It's very liquid and slick, and you only need a small amount for full coverage. Don't make the same mistake I did and slather it on (it's a dirty little trick since it's got the same applicator as a gloss), because this milky lip stain spreads like wildfire. Having said all of this, please keep in mind that on the whole, I am not a huge fan of lip stains, so the richness of this product definitely plays a role in my opinion. For a description of the four color combination options,

  • Metis/Vicoire: mulberry and plum
  • Moon Fleet/Indian Red: sparkling gold and deep scarlet red
  • Turkish Delight/Sayonara: sheer light pink and rose petal pink
  • Sandpiper/Daredevil: Shimmering coral and scarlet red
