NARS Sheer Lipstick in Dolce Vita
Skin tone: Dark
Hair colour: Black
Feedback: Due to my darker skin tone, I’ve often veered away from a nude lip as I’ve been worried about it washing me out. I usually end up looking like just one big brown mass, with my eyes and nostrils being the only decipherable features left on my face. However, this lipstick certainly went some way to changing my mind, mainly due to its sheer, buildable texture.
A great daytime alternative to my recent obsession with red lipstick, it provided a chic wearable switch up that I could definitely get on board with. It didn’t look cakey like other nude lipsticks I’ve tried have. I had to balance it out though with a heavier eye than I’m used to, but if I’m ever in the mood for a smokey eye, this will make for the perfect lipstick to pair it with.
Was it worth the money?
I’m unsure I would wear it often enough to warrant the price tag unfortunately. However, If you’re of a lighter skin tone, the contrast may just be enough to ensure you get more wear out of it.
Would you recommend it to a friend?
Yes, but only if they had lighter or olive skin tone or if they had a penchant for bold eye makeup if they had darker skin.
