NARS Lipgloss in Revolt Review

The vampy lip is definately in this season. Bold shades of red, purple, and even black make up an interesting lip look for the Fall however pulling off these looks isn't as easy as it appears!

If you're like the Muse you may love the look of the vampy lip but might be a bit wary of trying it out for yourself. This could be because you shy away from bolder looks or you might have a fuller face and you're scared such a loud lip will look garish on, whatever your reason for not trying out this hot new trend I'll happily recommend you one of my personal picks for an easy, quick, simple, and quite flatteringly subdued vampy lip look.

NARS Lipgloss in Revolt is a wonderful gloss for creating a perfect purple pout while keeping it sheer yet elegant without creating a loud, bold effect.







The color is a simple grape shade that's flattering on most skin tones. The effect is a very nice dark, crushed berry look on the lips. Intensity of the shade can be built up or toned down to suit the look you prefer.





I applied several layers of NARS Lipgloss in Revolt and still the look is natural and flattering without being extreme. I think the gloss is perfection if you're wanting to sport the vampy look but not take the plunge with a very bold color.





Vampy lips for the Fall are Muse Approved and products that make this trend easy and simple get a big Yay from the Muse!







You can purchase NARS Lipgloss from the NARS website and be sure to check out the color Metis too which looks like a create gloss for a vampy lip!

Hmm..how close is the color to MAC's CoC Jampacked Lipglass? It looks a bit similar.

It's kinda similiar but I felt like MAC Jampacked had much more red to it where as this is purple for sure!

Mmmmmm, purple.... how does it compare to MAC's Atmospheric lipglass in terms of colour and texture?

I think that color looks great on you. I never would have thought that color would look so good when I saw it in the tube! Thanks for showing us this. It gives me confidence to try something similar.

Gorgeus!
I instantly thought "It reminds me of jampacked but more purple" when I saw it on you. I see in the comments that I'm not the only one ;)
I so want that one two (I already have jampacked on my must have list). My shoppinglist are getting long this autumn :P

Ooooh, this looks like such an interesting colour, but I think it might be too dark for me, and look strange on my dark skin. Looks very dramatic on you, would look amazing with vampy eyes!

hi helly!

I know me too. The purple was a tad bit scary but it's actually quite lovely :) I was trying to go lighter with my liner so I just tightlined and lined the lower waterline :) but you're right a bit of a dramatic eye look may work well!


Aw thanks!
Hugs!

hello liz!

Mmm I dunno..I never tried atmospheric sadly. As for the formula I gave a brief review of nars lipgloss in my nars orgasm post did you see it?

it's considerably different compared to lipglass..less tacky..sticky...and buildable in color which I like!

hello trishket!

Thanks so much :)

Me either. It's scary in the tube. gothy and dark! But it definately is lighter compared to some of the products out for vampy looks!

Good for you! Get out there and do a vampy look ;)

Thanks for the comment, hope we talk again soon!

Hugs!

Thanks honey!

hello dancinggal!

Hmm I think it would be nice on a darker skin tone love. It's quite buildable so even a little bit would look interesting :)


I was debating on vampy eyes hehe! I was scared it would be too much!

but I think that's my next venture :)
