NARS Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer Review, Photos & Swatches!!

NARS Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer

Nars Chelsea Girls Lip Lacquer ($24) is described as a nude beige high-shine lip color with a unique texture to prevent the color from bleeding. It can be worn alone or over other lip colors.

I would describe the color as a neutral, muted mauvey pink with a hint of warm beige. I was actually very surprised with the texture. It’s very thick and applies very opaque. I definitely thought it was going to be more sheer and have the consistency of a lip balm. It has a heavy, slightly sticky texture to the touch, but once applied to the lips it isn’t very sticky.

On my lips it reminds me a lot of Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte #2, but slightly pinker. The color is long lasting (because of the texture) and I think its a pretty universal color that would be flattering for light to medium skin tones.

The finish is shiny & it didn’t dry out my lips.

The only negatives about this product I can think of are, the pot is so small and deep that its sort of a pain applying the product. I have long nails so I can’t really use my fingers, so I have to use a brush, which isn’t very convenient. Something like the packaging of MAC tinted lip conditioner would work better for me. (A larger, less deep pot) Also, I don’t really like the smell of the product. It has a yucky, very strong chemical smell. Also, since the product is so thick, I can see myself running out of this very quick. Nevertheless, I’m very happy with Chelsea Girls. 🙂

On my lips…

I got this hoodie for Christmas from my mom.. and I completely forgot about it.. I found it through my piles of clothes today. lol It was like $39 at TJMaxx.

And a back shot. 😉

Finally the Spring is here and the snow is gone! It’s so exciting. Its going to reach the 70s this week.. woohoo!

  1. It's gonna be 70's here too! It hits 81 on Friday, can't wait!!! I hope to go out Saturday night and not freeze my arse off like I did this past weekend, haha.

    I love this lacquer and I too am disturbed by the things you mentioned. I don't use it bery often (even though I keep my nails super short), it's just too sticky to apply with my fingers 😦



  2. I am so jealous that it's nice where you're at! It's still in the forties here!

    That lip lacquer looks great on you. And how cute is that hoodie? I wish there were a TJ Maxx closer to us… Marshalls is nearby, but I don't see big name brands there too often!


  3. Do you experience a burning sensation and bad smell? I just tried my sister's, and once I put it on, all I wanted to do is wipe it off as fast as I can.. >__< I don't the formula is going bad already since the pot looks pretty new (and she's not kind to collect cosmetics)


  4. Joli – Thank you so much!! To be honest, I don't really remember what else I was wearing in the photo. I'm sure it was just a neutral lip liner and Chelsea Girls. I may have to get back to you regarding a dupe – I want to say its kind of like a mixture of Hue and Honeylove.

    aisyah – I don't experience burning – but the smell, YES! It's terrible. I don't wear it because of that reason. I can't take the nasty smell on my lips. I heard they reformulated it though and it doesn't have the bad smell anymore. I'm not positive if that's true because I never checked Sephora for myself.
