NARS Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatment for a Soft, Sheer Look

Published in: Makeup

nars pure sheer spf lip treatment review

With summer approaching, it’s perfectly natural to love lips kissed with NARS Pure Sheer SPF Lip Treatment ($25). The new line of six sheer little lovelies delivers natural-looking color (for that coveted “nude” lip look), subtle shine and sun protection just in time for summer.


NARS didn’t just add SPF 15 to these and call it a day. They also made them hydrating by adding wild mango butter, Acai oil and Vitamin E.

I’ve been wearing Aurore, a light pink nude, practically nonstop for a few days because I love how creamy it feels on my lips. I’d also like to thank NARS for not loading it up with any funky flavors or scents. When I see a product for the first time, I usually make assumptions about how it might taste or smell, ya know? Don’t some products just look like they’re destined to have a fragrance? In this case, the moment I saw Aurore, I thought, “Please don’t smell like strawberries.” And it doesn’t, so yay! ๐Ÿ™‚

Now what about wear time? I’d estimate it lasts about 2-3 hours on my lips, which isn’t too shabby for something this sheer. If it weren’t for the price, I’d rub it all over myself and shout “NARS Pure Sheer!” from every rooftop. Still, $25 for these isn’t unusual for NARS. At least I know I’ll wear it down to the nub. If you like the “non-makeup” makeup look, check out all six shades at your local NARS counter, Sephora store and/or

Marshall’s must love cat ladies

Was I just late to the Marshall’s party? The store near my house is like discount shoe heaven! Not only does it carry high-end brands like LAMB, Gucci and Prada, but I’ve also seen some budget stuff that’s pretty darn cute. Case in point: these leopard print sandals on sale for $15. They’re by a brand called Coconuts, and I think they feel more comfortable than $15 should.

El Hub took one look and dubbed them “cat lady shoes.”

What did ya wear on your feet today? Bonus points if you snagged it on sale. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I wore these Clarks sandals:

    They were $40 on, but I had about $25 in Amazon gift certificates, so I paid $15. Then, the day after I ordered them, they went on sale for $30. I emailed endless, and they refunded me $10, meaning I paid a grand total of $5 for them!

    Love your “cat lady” sandals!

  2. Tracy says:

    I sure hope these come to my Nars counter soon! I’m totally a lip balm lovin’ kinda’ gal.
    I had to wear my Geox sneakers today because I’m packing-I work at a High School and we’re moving into a brand spanking new school in the next few weeks. I HATE packing. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hi Tracy,

      I feel that pain. Moving is NEVER fun. In fact, I still have boxes in the kitchen that still need to be unpacked… and I moved into this new place in September.

      I hope the rest of the packing goes relatively smoothly.

    Those are cute sandals! Is that Essie’s new green NP? I should introduce you to my mom. The woman is there at least weekly.

    I love Tabs’ orange belly! Muffin’s muffintop is orange as well and she’s got black spots like a cheetah!

  5. Glosslizard says:

    Love the cat lady shoes with the Essie green pedi, and I so want to rub Tabs’ fuzzy belly! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m wearing a pair of Roxy slip-one sneakers (black with turquoise, olive and pink hearts) that my Mom sent me!

    Can’t wait to get my hands (paws?) on a lip treatment! I love lipstick/gloss hybrids.

    Today I wore my silver Havaianas. I LOVE Marshalls – totally shoe heaven!

    I’m usually a high heels girl but since i’m 4 months pregnant i need comfort! I’ve been practically LIVING in these ballet flats and they’re comfy and still cute:-)

  9. noemii says:

    speaking of cat lady .. have you ever heard of/ visited ?
    It’s like the Sartorialist ..but ..with cats .
    hmm ..

  10. Nina says:

    Oh I love Coconuts. My fave faux snakeskin sandals (that ive worn for 2 summers already and going on strong) are Coconuts. I have a backup of the same sandal in another color too!

    That lip treatment is pretty …. but Tabs’ is prettier (or hawter!)….

  11. Kim says:

    Is it me or is Tabs snubbing your sassy new sandals? Hopefully he’s just swooning over their cuteness. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Shannon says:

    Love those shoes and the nail polish! And I love that you’ve been on a Nars roll.

  13. lexi says:

    These were SUPER sheer when I swatched them. I’m still on the fence but I do love the fact that there is NO scent/flavor.

    Prada/L.A.M.B. shoes at your Marshall’s – I got to get there Tout Suite!!

  14. Kristen says:

    This is just the type of lip color I like to wear. I was wondering if you’ve tried the new Bobbi Brown sheer tints with SPF and if you have, which did you think is better…NARS or Bobbi Brown? Since they are both quite pricey I can only afford to pick-up one and I’m just curious which one you’d recommend. Thanks in advance for your insight.

    I’m wearing some blue non-rubber flip-flops (my nana called them zories) with that tatami-mat sole with a little peace sign. Had to have ’em. One dollar at Dollar Tree.

  16. Trinidad says:

    Marshalls is THE PLACE for shoes! It’s a little to messy for me, for clothes. But the shoes section is usually well kept! I’ve found Prada, Guess etc! It’s the a great find.

    Yes! Sales! I went to Marshall’s today but didn’t find anything…but got a pair of sandals for $30 at Famous Footwear. I might return them though, because I need something cushier and taller (I need extra height!).
