As promised, here's my rewiew about one of Nars' most talked about lipstick - Dolce Vita.
Nars lipstick in Dolce Vita, Php1,250
You might ask what made me choose Dolce Vita when I'm not that partial to red/rose shades. I actually wanted Roman Holiday but I have way too many pink lipsticks so I opted for Dolce Vita since it's sheer anyway. When I got home, I was kinda scared to apply it on my lips but I eventually had to since I have no plans of selling this.
So after taking a photo of the tube, I applied it on my lips. The lipstick has a scent that I can't decipher. It's not a bad smell, don't worry. The lipstick glides on smoothly because it's creamy. However, I had apply it about 4 times on my lips for the shade to really show. You might have to apply more than 4 times if your lips have darker lining.
So, that's the photo of me wearing Dolce Vita on my lips. Pardon my pimple. I just had my facial check-up. On my 'Lipsticks Galore' post, most of the comments were keen about the swatches of the lipsticks particularly this lipstick. No more swatching since I'm showing how it's like on my lips. The swatch might be deceiving. But then again, can you really tell that I'm wearing a lipstick? No, right?! It is indeed a my-lips-but-better (MLBB) lipstick!
And I don't know if it's just me or what, but I feel that it also moisturizes my lips or at least it feels that way. =)
- creamy texture
- good scent
- long wearing
- versatile shade
- makes your lips look healthy
- gives red/rose shades a whole new meaning
- very sheer (some like it sheer, some don't since you have to apply over and over)
- shorter than most lipsticks
So, what can you say about Nars Dolce Vita? =)
