Nars Turkish Delight Lipgloss

I know it’s a rip off, I know its just another neutral lipgloss but god I love Nars Turkish Delight! I bought it in Selfridges in London for £17 sterling last August. I have no idea how much this costs in euros, probably about €28. It’s quite a lot for a lipgloss.

The thing I like most is the colour. It’s a pinky nude sheen. I have never come across a lipgloss that is similar to this one. I’ve checked out peoples ‘dupes’ but they don’t come close in my opinion. I also love the texture. It’s creamy not sticky and very smooth. It doesn’t leave my lips dry at the end of the day.

There’s a con with every product and this gloss is no exception. The staying power is poor. It’s one of those glosses that belongs in your handbag, at hand for constant reapplying. It last longer when paired with a lipstick.

My favourite way to wear Turkish Delight is with MAC Creme d’Nude Lipstick and a neutral liner. I also love it over Hue and Pretty Please. Hell I love it over everything!

This is expensive, with little staying power yet I adore it. It’s a mystery!

What do you think?

    Have you tried the Underage Lipglass by Mac? I have heard its similar to the Turkish Delight by NARS.

    I bought the Nars Turkish Delight yesterday from Selfridges in Birmingham, (i went out looking for a dress to wear for my night out but as I didnt find anything I thought I’d treat myself to some make up instead!! I love the colour but I admit it doesn’t take long for it to fade away, the price is very expensive for a product with very little staying power but the colour is amazing. Im saving it for special occasions!! xx

    I have the NARS Orgasm gloss, and I love it. Especially paired with my Orgasm blush – I’m all set!

    I’m interested in Turkish Delight, because it looks similar to Orgasm, but more pink.

    This may be my next NARS purchase! I’ve been very into lip glosses lately. I think I’ve bought around 10 in the past month or so! Sheesh. Okay, I might have to wait a while to buy this one. :)

    Thanks for the recommendation, Amy.

    Hi Amy!

    Alas, I have never truly understood the NARS lipgloss allure. I caved to pressure and bought NARS Orgasm a few years back and…well…just really didn’t feel the love, so to speak.

    It was “OK”, but the color wasn’t really me (despite everyone saying it worked for every skin tone) and the texture seemed a bit thick.

    Ever since then, I’ve been very cautious when thinking of purchasing these “cult favorites.”

    I’ve found regular, drugstore brands are just as good, and lighter on the budget!

      I agree. I am usually disappointed by ‘cult buys’

    Hey Amy
    love love this lipgloss but could never justify the price for just one lipgloss,which if i’m to believe rumours doesn’t last too long before it goes rancid, but anyway you should check out a lipgloss by smashbox called “pout” it seems very similar to the turkish delight….
    <3 your website o_O

    I just recently started getting into NARS. Is there no web site that delivers to Ireland? I find it strange that the only place to have it should be BT in Dublin!

    I really like Nars lipglosses but I think they’re so overpriced for what they really are. I love my striptease lipgloss, but I don’t think I’ll get another one from them. I prefer MAC lipglosses so much more :)
