What are some things you can do while wearing the seven brand new shades in the newly reformulated NARS Lip Gloss line?

Hmm… Well, you could start writing that young adult novel you’ve been meaning to, and by “you” I mean me (and maybe also you); you could have donuts for dinner; or, if you’re a cat lady like me, you could…


1. Hug your cat while wearing NARS Lip Gloss in Tasmania

If time permits, bury your face in his or her tummy while saying, “Mmmmm, delicious tabby belly meat!”

Do this until he or she gets angry.

2. Fall in love at the Humane Society while wearing NARS Lip Gloss in Sixties Fan

While there, you could also seriously consider adopting a cat. Or two. Or twelve. And pretend not to hear your husband when he says, “Twelve is just too many!”

Even Kanji the kitty loves NARS Sixties Fan Lip Gloss

I mean, how could you not fall in love with a kitty like Kanji, a gorgeous boy with the most beautiful blue eyes in the world?!

3. Wear a cat t-shirt to the mall while wearing NARS Lip Gloss in Salamanca

Bonus points if the cat on your shirt is wearing glasses.

4. Look for kitty-themed home decor at Anthropologie while wearing NARS Lip Gloss in Quito

Because surrounding yourself (and your kitty and non-kitty companions) with cat-themed home decor takes your cat lady-ness to the next level.

5. Search for more cat tees at Urban Outfitters while wearing NARS Lip Gloss in Priscilla

Because one cat t-shirt is nowhere near enough. Obviously!


6. Furr-iously read feline books at the bookstore while wearing NARS Lip Gloss in Eternal Red

Knowledge is power, yo!

7. Wear cat lady tennis shoes while wearing NARS Lip Gloss in Istria

Why settle for boring old tennies when you could wear these ASPCA flats by Vans?

The newly reformulated NARS Lip Gloss Line

  • Coming April 15 to NARS Boutiques and narscosmetics.com, and NARS counters and Sephora stores May 1.
  • Bound for the permanent line.
  • The new formulation feels silkier, smoother and less sticky on my lips.
  • The new formula does NOT taste and smell like plastic, yay!
  • They last from 2-4 hours for me.
  • NARS kept the doe-foot applicator but replaced the opaque tubes with clear tubes.
  • While the tubes appear larger, they actually contain less product. The previous versions were $24 for a 0.28-oz tube, while these new ones are $26 for 0.18 ounces. Hrmpf!
  • The new NARS Lip Gloss line features 23 shades carried over from the previous formulation, and seven completely new shades — namely Salamanca, Eternal Red, Quito, Priscilla, Sixties Fan, Istria and Tasmania.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. πŸ™‚ Have a great night.

    So gorgeous! I’ve been a huge fan of NARS Lip Gloss for ages–I’m not sure how I feel about there being so much less product in the new packaging, but I’m interested to check out the new formula πŸ™‚

  3. Erin says:

    Kanji the kitty is stunning and I’m pretty sure he should be Tabs’ new brother. I want to check the glosses out, but I’ve been wary of NARS gloss. I had an allergic reaction to the Larger than Life glosses.

    Eee! That Cat singlet is so cute!!

    You know, I always think of you when I see cat-themed clothes in stores now πŸ™‚

    Sometimes I think it’s funny how while we already have a cat (or three…) in the house, we still LOVE to see other people’s cat photos or stare at strange cats on the street. But oh well. I guess that’s what makes us cat ladies LOL

    I’m glad to hear they took the smell out of the formula! I haven’t tried a NARS gloss, but a reader told me recently that she hates the smell! Now I know why πŸ™‚

  18. Franseca says:

    Why do these companies (beauty, luxury, etc.) think it is ok to take advantage and rob it’s customers of their money? While I am glad Nars has re-formulated the glosses and gotten rid of the gross scent (I don’t care about the stickiness of lip glosses because I personally don’t mind it – love my MAC lipglasses), why cheat the consumers by offering less product and charging more money, i.e. Nars Matte Multiples? Whether it makeup or a luxury handbag, this companies seem to be conveying that they only want a certain clientele and everyone else can go by the wayside. So disappointing!!

  19. Tinisha says:

    I love Siamese cats!! I have three and they are very beautiful and smart.

  20. Jennifer says:

    My beautiful 12 year old Siamese died 3 weeks ago and we’re still in shock. Kanji looks a lot like him. I really miss seeing those gorgeous blue eyes.

  21. Jennifer says:

    New AND improved…and also 1/3 smaller? I don’t get it. That seems to be the trend lately. I know there’s no point in complaining, but every company that’s re formulated a product ends up shrinking it but not the price.

  22. Erin says:

    You’re a stronger woman then I am! I can’t go anywhere near adoptable animals without getting one or crying an feeling guilty for days about not getting at least one. I’ve got 2 rescue pets and it’s all I’m allowed on my new lease!

    True story: The vet’s assistant asked me on the phone today, “which one is it? Oooh, you have a LOT of cats”. Yes, thanks, 4 is actually a lot. πŸ™‚

    Another true story, we visited a pet store a few weeks ago and one of the boys fell in LOVE with a dwarf lop eared bunny. It was the most adorable thing I’ve seen in forever. Sadly, I don’t think it would have lasted long with the aforementioned 4 cats. πŸ™

  24. Chelsea says:

    I love this post! I was not a cat person until we got our first cat (rest in peace, Gomez, you were gone too soon), but I’ll be damned if I’m not trying to get every kitty I see to play with me (I may have been trying to get a neighbor kitty to eat treats from me in my wedding dress). I mean, of course I’m still a crazy bunny lady, and I love dogs, but I love cats too now.

    • Karen says:

      I know what you mean. I wasn’t really a cat person until I met Tabs, believe it or not!

      I saw a kitty today that you’d probably want to make friends with. She’s a cute, long-haired tabby that lives down the street. She’s skittish though. I think I will have to bribe her with canned food. πŸ™‚

  25. Sarah says:

    Karen! You find the best kitty items!

  26. Taylor says:

    LOL I love this! I’m such a cat lady and I’m going to pick up a new Nars lipgloss tomorrow. So funny

  27. Karith says:
