NARS Sheer Lipstick – Damage Review
Today, I am here to review a lipstick from NARS, one of my favourite brands. I am totally in love with the texture of their lipsticks. I have tried Satin and Velvet Matte Lip pencils from the brand. This is my first purchase from the “Sheer Lipstick” range. So, read further to know more about the product and how well it impressed me.
Price: AED 129 for 3.4 gm.
A beautifully sheer formula infused with ingredients to improve the condition of the lips. Sheer, long lasting color pigments have been suspended in this translucent formula to provide a sophisticated shine.
- Lightweight formula glides on smoothly.
- Lush shade range.
- Patented blend of conditioners and antioxidants hydrate, nourish and protect lips.
My Take on NARS Sheer Lipstick – Damage:
The lipstick comes in a black cardboard outer cover with typical NARS inscription. It contains the ingredients list and other details regarding the product. The lipstick itself is cocooned in a similar packing as the outer cover, a matte-finish black tube with NARS engraved in white on the top of the lipstick. It is just a simple, classy and travel-friendly packaging.
Color: NARS website describes the color as a “sheer muted grape” and it’s quite true. Even though it looks very dark in the tube, it’s a sheer lip color. The color is exactly a light berry shade. It looks like a real grape shade in the tube while its a lighter version when you apply on the lips. It is a very beautiful shade that will suit all the skin tones.
Texture: It has a gel-like texture and glides smoothly on your lips like butter, there is no dragging or pulling during application. I do not find any creaminess in the texture of this lipstick.
Finish: The lipstick gives a soft, mellow and luminous finish, it stays in an even manner on your lips. There is no highlighting of dry patches or settling into lip lines, it stays perfect. It gives a super lightweight feel on your lips after application. It’s more like a lip balm plus lip color in one. There is no feathering or bleeding, it stays put once applied.
Pigmentation and Coverage: As it is a sheer lip color, the pigmentation is not very great. A single swipe will give almost 50% of color on your lips and the color can be built up to 80% on your lips. It will look different on every lips, it will be a very light berry shade on non-pigmented lips while it will look dark berry wine on pigmented lips.
Staying Power: The lipstick stays on for about 3 to 4 hours without any meals in between, but after a heavy meal, it completely goes off from your lips without leaving any color. The sheer nature of the lipstick does not leave behind any stain also. It also transfers to cups and cutlery moderately.
Fragrance: It has a light cologne scent which is very mild and not all bothersome.
Overall, I like this lipstick due to its soft yet saucy look on the lips and suits my skin tone very well. It is an apt shade for most of the skin tones, especially our Indian skin tones.
Pros of NARS Sheer Lipstick – Damage:
- It glides on like butter on your lips to give a soft and natural look.
- It has a gel-like texture that gives a certain shine to your lips.
- The pigmentation is quite good considering it’s a sheer lip color.
- It does not highlight any dry patches or settle into lip lines.
- It has an average staying power for about 3 to 4 hours.
- There is no feathering or bleeding.

Cons of NARS Sheer Lipstick – Damage:
- The sheer lip color will not cover lip pigmentation fully.
- The color completely goes off from the lips after a meal without leaving any stain.
IMBB Rating: 4/5, I would recommend this shade to everyone who loves soft berry shades, it instantly brightens up your face.
