In Malaysia, we're deprived of NARS products. There's no NARS counter in Malaysia at all! So I had to stocked up 2 lip gloss from my Taiwan shopping.
I can't remember from where I read this.... NARS is actually sister company of Shiseido. Shiseido focuses on skincare and their products targeting mid age women, meanwhile NARS is famous of its cosmetics and it has the younger audience.
There are two malls in Taipei which you can get NARS, they're Sogo and Hankyu. I went to Hankyu because it's just along the way where I suppose to go. As I reached the NARS counter, I literally feel like a kid in a candy store!!!! It was so hard for me to pick two favorite shade for the lip gloss. I was so afraid of over-buying but at the same time I wanted everything!!!!!! It made me wanting to rob the entire NARS counter.
In the end, I narrowed down my choices to Chihuahua and Super Orgams (spelling this wrongly for a purpose, you know what I'm talking about right?).
Chihuahua is a very succulent natural shade. It is a peachy color which lean towards the brown coral side. It looks really good on top of nude color lipstick. You know how nude lipstick can make you look so pale and flat as if you're sick from getting vampire suck off your blood? This lip gloss overcome that problem and it adds on extra gloss that pumps up your unlively nude lipstick. This is a cream lip gloss. It doesn't have any shimmer or glitter in it. It is quite a low key lip gloss which is perfect for everyday wear. This is the type of lipgloss that can be worn by itself, you don't need to layer it on top of lipstick, lip pencil or lipstain.
I also choose Super Orgams because it is a new color from NARS. I've heard so many good things about NARS Orgams. Apparently it is the color that suits all skin color. And Super Orgams is the same shade of Orgams with extra glitters. The shade is light peachy pink (I really love peach shade, if you can tell) and it is quite transparent if you compare to Chihuahua. Because of the sheer lip gloss shade, it pumps up the lips immediately when you apply it on top of your lipstick. And the micro glitters in gold add a 3D dimension. I am really impress by this shade. However, it is best worn on top of lipstick. The sheer color might expose your original lip tone. If you can get your hands on this, go ahead! It is a GORGEOUS color! At the end of the day, you might need to use lip color remover to remove the stain of glitters from your lips. The glitters can be overpowering.
By the way, I will be getting some stuff from NARS. I know NARS is not available in Malaysia, therefore I'm offering a shopping service for you guys. If you want anything from NARS, check out <<this post>>.
