What It Is:
NARS Dolce Vita Lipstick
Why This Should Be in Your Bag:
NARS is a cult brand with some of the most sought-after products out there. And their lipstick in Dolce Vita is one of those! Described as “sheer, dusty rose”, it’s the “my lips but better” shade for loads of girls. NARS lipsticks come in different finishes and they say that Dolce Vita’s “sheer finish creates the most natural, stained-looking lips” – I couldn’t agree more.
How To Use It:
Since this is a sheer lippie, applying it straight from the tube is the way to go! I usually go for 2-3 swipes across my lips to build up a bit of colour.
CC Rating: A
NARS Dolce Vita does really deserve all the praise it gets! It’s the perfect enhanced natural lipstick and I love pairing it with my more dramatic eye looks or wearing it in daytime to give my complexion a boost. The formula itself is very comfortable to wear and doesn’t dry my lips out like some glossy lipsticks do.
The downsides? It’s a little pricey ($23 USD/$26 CAD) and the wear time isn’t phenomenal; 2-3 hours if I don’t eat or drink. However, it’s a beautiful shade that I’ve not seen a good dupe for! If you’re looking for a gorgeous, natural lip look no further than NARS Dolce Vita Lipstick!
