Best. Pink. EVAR.
Man I cannot get enough of Turkish Delight, its really the prettiest pale pink/nude I've ever used. On any given day, if I'm NOT wearing striptease, I'm wearing Turkish Delight. It's so soft, subtle and wears well that I just feel kinda lost without it. Both this color and striptease LIVE in my purse. ;)
Not worth the price
I purchased this lip gloss because I saw this shade on other people and really liked it. As far as this particular shade, it's a nice light pink with no shimmer. But I must say, I absolutely hate the formulation of this lip gloss. It's too thin, you have to build it up on your lips and it wears off so quickly. I hate lip glosses that you have to keep applying constantly. Also, the smell is a turn off. It has a chemically smell and it you happen to lick your lips or something it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. It would be nice if these had a sweet scent like MAC, it would make them slightly more appealing. I ended up returning this lip gloss soon after I purchased it, I could not justify keeping it for the price. And because I did like the color so much, I found a dupe for it at Victoria Secret in the shade Innocent. The quality is so much better and it cost less than half the price. I gave this lip gloss two and a half stars simply for the color selection, but I would definitely not purchase again. If NARS carries a particular shade that you like, my advice would be to find a dupe for it as I did.
Gets sticky over time
This is for "Downtown" a nordies exclusive from Holiday '10. This is a beautiful opalescent purple whose shade can multi-task. Wear it alone, with pencil, blend over lipstick... It's a pretty universal skin tone shade. Maybe not for the palest of skin tones. I have it on alone in my picture.
I love the applicator, it reminds me of a terry towel and because of the texture it smooths not globs the gloss on your lips. The downside, it becomes sticky over time or if you rubs your lips together often, like I do.
I probably wont rebuy this shade because there are so many others that I would like to try.
My Go To Nude
Ok, these things aren't cheap, but I gotta tell you...I LOVE them. I got the sample set last year from xmas and I simply LOVE the striptease color. It's the best nude I've ever used. Really it's almost my daily lip color. I'm sure there are dupes out there, but I feel like the color, consistency, and lasting wear of NARS make it well worth the price. A little dab goes a LONG way. I'm a fan!
A must have lip gloss!
This particular shade is flattering on any skin tone and can be applied with most any shade of pink or nude lipstick to give it that extra special something! It makes lips look fuller and more luscious since it has light reflecting gold pigments
This is is good lipgloss. Is it spectacular? No. Is it exceptional? No. The consistency and pigmentation are really nice. It's not at all gooey or sticky. The Orgasm shade is universally flattering and adds dimension to even the deepest, darkest lipsticks. It can be worn alone for a beautiful, sheer, natural, everyday look.
Beautiful over lipstick but sheer on its own
For the price i don't think its worth it to be 26 dollars . Dont get me wrong its a pretty sheer pink with gold flakes I was expecting it to be more pigmented . It doesn't smell nice or even taste nice however it does bring pizzazz to any pink lipstick that you are wearing. If you have the budget for it i say go for it but i have had better glosses for half of half the price .
I really wanted to love this lip gloss. The packaging is awesome and NARS overall is just a great brand. But this lip gloss is pretty average, if not even kind of bad. It's not sticky, which most people like, but I really like a sticky gloss. It doesn't really have a great smell (but it doesn't have a bad smell) it isn't sticky and it isn't very long lasting. I will say the colors are fantastic, but I wish they were more long-wearing. I can go buy better glosses from Walmart.
