The new Nars Dolce Vita lipgloss is in the picture to the left. Nars initially came out with a lipstick called Dolce Vita a few years ago — pretty soon it gained cult following for being very wearable.
I always thought that the Nars Dolce Vita lipstick was not quite rich enough in color — and that’s why I love the gloss. It’s the same color family as the lipstick but just a little deeper.
Nars is definitely on a Dolce Vita craze. There’s also a Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita. It looks great with the gloss. The combination of the two beats out the initial Dolce Vita lipstick in richness and depth. What I also like about the newer Dolce Vita lip products is that they are flattering on a range of complexions.
This fall, Nars also came out with the Dolce Vita blush. It’s very pigmented, so if you are pale, do use a light hand. Nars describes it as a Dusty Rose, which is accurate, but it definitely packs a punch on the rose. It’s not shimmery, though, which makes it wearable for any occasion.
If you prefer a more bronzey rose, you may want to consider the duo in the picture above. It has Lovejoy (shimmering bronzey rose) and Albatross (a shimmery golden highlight) — the shimmer is not over-the-top, and the Dolce Vita lipgloss works very well with Lovejoy.
So there you go — I do think these products are all great investment products — the roses in Nars products always tend to be wearable.
