Sheer Perfection? Nars Liguria Sheer Lipstick

Nars is one of my favorite make-up brands: I love their Radiant Creamy Concealer and Sheer Glow Foundation. Besides excellent quality, I have also really enjoyed their excellent service with knowledgeable and lovely MUA, although as a Narsisisst I am still a tiny bit upset I actually have to leave the country to visit a counter. Nars more than made up for that tiny flaw by kindly sending me this limited edition Liguria lipstick* for review.

Nars Sheer Lipstick Liguria Limited Edition

Liguria is one of Nars’ Sheer Lipsticks, aimed at giving you a great translucent finish and weightless feel. Liguria is a nude caramel color that produces a golden glow on the lips. Unfortunately I cannot wear this shade by itself as it just looks very peculiar on me – think horrible teenage make up mistake from the eighties – but I can imagine this will look breathtaking on darker complexions.

That doesn’t mean I haven’t been enjoying Liguria: I love layering it over other lipsticks to create a unique color or effect. The translucency and shine make it look like million bucks on top of a matte formula: it lifts the matte effect and adds a depth to any shade.

I have also been playing with ombre or multi-colored lips by applying Liguria solely at the centre of my lips and fading out gradually to matte at the edges. I tried to photograph the effect here, but it is a little tricky to catch on camera and a lot more visible in real life. On the left is just the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Β Don’t Pink of it! and on the right I have added Liguria to the center to create more depth.

I love the fact that Liguria allows me to add a little depth to matte formulas and to create unique color combinations. The formula is very light and hydrating, also a welcome addition to often drying matte lipsticks. I love the ombre effect but let me know how you would use this lipstick!

Nars is een van mijn favoriete makeup merken: ik ben dol op de Radiant Creamy Concealer en Sheer Glow Foundation. De kwaliteit is geweldig en ik geniet ook altijd van de goede service door lieve en deskundige verkoopsters, hoewel ik het als narsissist wel erg jammer vind dat ik naar het buitenland moet voor een bezoekje aan een winkel. Nars hebben dat meer dan goed gemaakt door mij deze limited edition Liguria lipstick* te sturen.

Nars Sheer Lipstick Liguria Limited Edition

Liguria is een van de Nars Sheer Lipsticks, die een mooi doorschijnende finish en licht gevoel geven. Liguria is een nude karamel kleurtje met een gouden glans op de lippen. Helaas kan ik deze kleur niet zo dragen omdat het er heel raar uitziet – denk aan foute tiener makeup uit de jaren tachtig – maar ik denk dat deze er helemaal geweldig uitziet op dames met een donkere huid.

Maar dat betekend niet dat ik niet geniet van Liguria: ik vind deze lippenstift helemaal gaaf bovenop een andere lipstick om een unieke kleur of effect te creΓ«ren. De doorschijnendheid en glans maken deze echt supergaaf over een matte formule: het geeft echt een mooie diepte.

Ik ben ook aan het experimenteren geweest met ombre of meerkleurige lippen door Liguria alleen in het midden van mijn mond aan te brengen. Ik heb geprobeerd dat te fotograferen, maar het is lastig te vangen met de camera en een stuk gaver in het echt.

Ik vind Liguria echt fijn om diepte te geven aan matte lipstick en zelf unieke combinaties te combineren. De formule is licht en hydraterend, ook een fijne toevoeging aan de vaak uitdrogende matte lipsticks. Ik vind het ombre effect heel tof maar laat me weten hoe jij deze lipstick zou gebruiken!

    I really the liked the way how you have mixed and matched with Nars and Bourjois together and I also love the way how you have complimented the sheerness of one to the other.

      Thanks πŸ™‚ I just think the only way to wear a caramel shade for a fair girl is to combine it with something else πŸ™‚

    Oh I so get you with those caramel lip colours as I really struggle to wear them too Anne, I think it must be a fair skin issue *sigh* however I do like the look you created over the Bourjois, looks lovely, definitely a lot more wearable! How awesome of Nars to send you a complimentary lippy though!!!! πŸ™‚ XXX

    So neat you received this from Nars! I do like how you used it as a “top coat” for matte lip products. I bet you could use a lip liner and fill in your whole lip and then top it with Linguria! πŸ™‚

      Nars is just the absolute best πŸ™‚
      Also an excellent idea πŸ™‚ I have been meaning to try this over CT Pillow Talk as well but haven’t gotten around to it.

      It is very caramel/golden on the lips and it looks weird by itself on my fair skin, but great over a different lipstick πŸ™‚

      No I popped it over a Bourjois Matte Velvet color. I should really make that more clear, I will edit it in thanks πŸ™‚
      On my lips alone is just looks weird…
