NARS Little Princess, Sexual Healing, Chelsea Girls Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Little Princess
NARS Little Princess Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pale, peachy pink with a sparkling finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, but the color applied unevenly, clumped up on itself, and sank heavily into every lip line I had (and some I didn’t know I had!). The consistency was lightweight, thin without feeling clingy, and comfortable to apply and to wear, but the product just looked so poor on. This shade stayed on for two and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating while worn.Top DupesFormula OverviewIngredients

$26.00/0.12 oz. – $216.67 Per OunceNARS has reformulated their core lipstick range, which now includes 72 shades across three finishes: matte, sheer, and satin. The formula is supposed to go on “smoothly and evenly with a light feel” that is “long-lasting” and “resistant to bleeding and feathering.” The sheer finish has “subtle, sheer color that shines,” while the satin finish has “creamy rich color” and the matte finish has “intense color with a velvety finish.”
The matte finish has a very thin, featherweight feel to it, but they didn’t feel clingy or too prone to dragging during application, though they were definitely a firmer texture in the tube. There was enough glide from the inclusion of dimethicone (first ingredient for the matte finish) that went on evenly, felt velvety but didn’t feel as powder-like as some of the other more silicone-heavy matte lipstick formulas that have been released in the last couple of years. Most shades were pigmented and nearly opaque to opaque. The wear ranged from three to six hours with deeper, richer shades staying on a bit longer and leaving slight stains. They were comfortable to wear but felt more non-drying than particularly hydrating.
The satin finish has more slip, feels thicker (though not actually thick or heavy) compared to the matte finish, and of course, there was subtle to light shine/sheen. They applied smoothly, comfortably, and for the most part, went on evenly and didn’t sink noticeably into my lip lines but there was some variance between shades. They were typically semi-opaque to opaque in coverage with four to six-hour wear that was lightly hydrating.
The sheer finish had coverage that ranged from semi-sheer to true medium coverage but most had some translucency to them, which gave them a sheerer finish. I found most of the shades I tried were buildable to some degree. The texture was a bit firmer, but they felt more emollient and “melted” a bit more against my lips than I recall the original line of lipsticks doing. Some shades applied well with even application and were flattering on, but there were a few that sank more noticeably into my lip lines. This finish tended to wear between three and five hours.
I don’t have many of NARS’ original lipsticks in my stash (I have mostly Audacious as they haven’t been releasing many in the core range) to compare to. The matte finish was definitely thinner, more matte, and had a velvetier look on lips compared to the original which had a subtle sheen to it. The satin finish seemed a bit more pigmented and not quite as luminous/glossy as the previous formula, while the sheer finish was creamier, more emollient, and was easier to apply. It didn’t feel like a vastly different formula, but it felt a bit easier to work with (smoother, more emollient but still lighterweight and thin, far less slip than any of the Audacious range) and was more comfortable to wear across the board for me.
I didn’t notice any scent or taste, though there is “fragrance (parfum)” listed in the ingredients–it smelled neutral, not waxy but I just didn’t get any scent.

Sexual Healing
NARS Sexual Healing Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium pink with strong, warm undertones and fine, multi-colored pearl (mostly pink and gold) with a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer color coverage that was buildable to medium coverage–it actually seemed to be very “my-lips-but-better” (it looks more pigmented on my actual lips than I think it genuinely is). The texture was lightweight, emollient without being too slippery, and comfortable to wear with a great even application. It lasted for three hours on me and felt moisturizing over time.Top DupesFormula OverviewIngredients

Chelsea Girls
NARS Chelsea Girls Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, light-medium pink-coral with a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was in line with expectations based on the finish classification, that applied evenly across my lips. There was a faint amount of product that sank into my deeper lip lines but wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. While the consistency felt lightly emollient and had some shine, it required freshly-exfoliated lips or else it caught on texture. It wore well for three hours and was lightly hydrating over time.Top DupesFormula OverviewIngredients
