Here's a review that you won't see often in my blog: a lip gloss. For some reason, I stopped wearing lip gloss years ago. I can see it on someone else and think it looks pretty. And lip gloss photographs gorgeously. However, I can't keep myself from touching my face unconsciously so lip gloss always ends up on my hands and arms. And when I walk outside and the wind blows my hair in my face, the feeling of hair stuck on my lips is unbearable. I also dislike having to reapply it so often. I actually only own one lip gloss besides this one. I threw away the other ones I used to own.
Silly rant aside, I decided to buy a high-end lip gloss to see if they were much different than drugstore lip glosses. I thought a better formula would get me to wear lip gloss more often. It didn't. Super Orgasm is a gorgeous lip gloss. It's the best lip gloss I've tried so far, but I'm still simply not a lip gloss girl. Plus, drugstore lip glosses have improved their formula a lot over the years. Back then, most were terribly sticky. Not anymore.
- Amazing formula: non-sticky and very comfortable to wear
- Gorgeous color! Sheer pink with gold glitter
- The glitter is very fine, it never feels gritty
- Lasts 2 or 3 hours on the lips
- Looks great over nude lipstick
- The pink base is sheer so you can layer it over many colors

In summary, I found the formula and wear of NARS lip gloss to be very impressive. Super Orgasm is a great color for layering. If you love lip gloss I definitely recommend NARS because they have some great ones. Since I rarely wear lip gloss, I would splurge on something else and get drugstore lip glosses instead since they are great quality as well.
