NARS Sweet Revenge Lipgloss

Best part of my Friday: listening to Salt N’ Pepa’s Push It while watching Tabs lick his tummy. If you’ve ever watched a small dog or cat cross the street while listening to hip-hop in the car, you’ll know why I found it as funny as I did. :)



Ah, push it…

Ah, push it…

Second best part of my Friday: swatching the limited edition NARS Follow the Boys Lip Gloss Set ($40).


Sweet Revenge


Turkish Delight

Like the recent Crazy Heart holiday set, Follow the Boys comes with a selection of smaller-than-normal NARS glosses from the company’s permanent line, except in this set there are four instead of five — Turkish Delight (a creamy pale pink), Sweet Revenge (a shimmery peachy pink), Moon Fleet (a glittery gold) and Easy Lover (a sheer hot pink).

If you wear nude lip colors often, this set may be of more interest to you than Crazy Heart because three of its four shades are light neutrals.

My only minor reservation has to do with the faint plasticky fragrance and scent these have — same as the glosses in the Crazy Heart set. Thankfully it fades before the colors do.

What do ya think, and which set do you like more between Crazy Heart and Follow the Boys?

Picture these with some smokey eyes before you answer. :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

P.S. TGIF! What are you doing tonight? I’m trying to figure out if I’m going to go out or stay in. Tabs says hi.

  3. bangs do you good. I’d pass. I might get easy lover but i’d pass on the other ones.

    You look so good with bangs! I think I prefer the Hourglass set, or the Smashbox Wish set over this one.

  5. Kate says:

    Girl, you look like Tia Carrera circa Wayne’s World with those bangs – HAWT! I’m hearing “Dream Weaver” in my head right now! You’re lucky that you can rock all the hair looks – sideswept bang, full-on fringe, bare forehead. So jealous.

    I don’t think those glosses are pigmented enough for me, but it’s nice that they’re neutral enough to work on pretty much anyone.

  6. Jenn says:

    Love the new ‘do. You look great with bangs :D

  7. Tracy says:

    Karen I decided that you just look good in everything!

    Staying in tonight-watching the encore presentation of The Walking Dead tonight with a glass of red wine.

    ps. u're rocking that easy lover girl !!

  9. bibi says:

    What do you have on your eyes? IS it a blue-indigo pencil or an eye-shade?

  10. Heidi says:

    Echoing the sentiments of everyone who’s loving the hairstyle on you! As for the glosses, I think I prefer the color range in the Crazy Heart set.

    Just hanging out this evening. Did my nails awhile ago and now I’m about to pay some bills. Missy’s whining about something. Who knows with this cat…. she’s probably not happy with the sound of the furnace, but, but sorry kitty, it’s chilly in here!

  11. NIna says:

    im liking easy lover more and more — and you look adorable! :D

  12. Salvinia says:

    Whatever you’re wearing on your eyes looks AMAZING! I’m so jealous of people with brown eyes, they can pull off blue (and any other colour, for that matter) in a way I could never hope to!

  13. hmm I was definitely expecting Easy Lover to have a bit more pigmentation, I’ve gotta say I’m not crazy about this set, Crazy Heart was more my thing. Your hair is looking really good today!

  15. Lisa S. says:

    Well I already have Turkish delight and Easy Lover so I’d have to say this set But I really like the other set too……… What I can decide on is how great you look here! Love the bangs!

    Hey Karen! Did you see those 2 NARS eyeshadow duos for ten dollars each? That’s crazy! If your interested, there at sephora :P

  17. Rae says:

    Kareeeeennnnnn your HAIR! I love it! I love it so much! :D (Okay, so I usually love your hair, but this cut is *particularly* chic. The bangs! Such lovely bangs!)

    As for the glosses? Eeh, you’re totally showing them up. They’re cute, but any hint of a plasticky scent usually puts me in Migrane City… :/

    Hi Karen! I’m finally going to de-lurk! You look gorgeous in this post and I love your eyeshadow. What color is it? I think the only NARS lip gloss I love is Dolce Vita. I love Tabs. I have a tuxedo named Mr. Sun. He is a hoot.

    • Heidi says:

      My Missy’s a tuxedo! They really are something, aren’t they?

      • steph says:

        Yes. He is the most playful and bossiest cat I’ve ever met. :) Is Missy the same?

        • Heidi says:

          Yes! We just got done playing an exhausting game of “Mommy throws a ball, Missy runs to it, and sits down and stares at it until Mommy picks it up and throws it again”, followed by her running like a lunatic after her toy on a stick. Hopefully I can finish typing this before she insists, no, DEMANDS, that I stop typing so she can curl up on my lap and purr while I pet her for the rest of the evening!

          • steph says:

            Good luck! Mr. Sun turned 5 this year and he has mellowed out some. Not wanting me to throw his toy mouse over and over. But he has his moments. Got to get him in bed soon!

  19. snoopysteph says:

    I already have a full size Easy Lover and Turkish Delight, so I’ll probably pass on this set. But I do want Moon Fleet, sooo pretty!

  20. Marian says:

    Your hair is gorgeous!

  21. Stef says:

    Did I miss a haircut post? Cause Lady, you look fab! You KNOW you look good if everyone is “whatever” about a set of NARS glosses!

    • Karen says:

      ‘Sup Stef? I got a bang trim last week… and I’m using a new product that’s great for volume called Orofluido. Have you heard of it? My stylist gave me a sample last week.

  22. Bella says:

    You look fabulous. I think I prefer this lip kit as well. And as others have asked, what are you wearing on your eyes? It’s such a gorgeous shade of indigo!

  23. Sandra says:

    Hi Karen!
    Lately, you’ve been looking a little different in your photos, and I can’t put my finger on it, but every time a new post comes up, I notice that something’s different about you. Different in a really, really good way. You somehow seem more glowy and refreshed and GLOWY than before! haha. anyways, fantastic post as always. and sorry if my little girly squeals of YOU LOOK PRETTY! are silly.
    Cheers! :D

    and those Lorac lip glosses from a little while ago seem like they would make a great gift!

  24. danielle says:

    tabs! you really got me goin. you got me so ! i dont know what i’m doin. oooh baby babehhh

  25. Karen says:

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the nice complements on my hair! It is a little different today — I straightened it and used something new that my stylist gave me called Orofluido:

    http://www.orofluido.com/en/index.html.

    It’s great for both shine and volume. My hair gets BIG when I use the stuff.

    Also, there seems to be a lot of interest in what’s going on with the eyes here. I’m wearing a mix of several shades from the Urban Decay Black Palette. Do you want a tutorial? Let me know. :)

    • Heidi says:

      Yes, please! A tutorial would be awesome. I’ve been playing with the black palette and would love to learn how you used the colors together.

  26. Myr says:

    You look great with bangs!
    On an unrelated note, I finally purchased three of the Wet n Wild singles from your archaic post. (You know you’re cheap when you wait for a 50% off deal on $2 eyeshadows…) I absolutely LOVE Nutty and Penny. Excellent quality and beautiful colors. I haven’t tested out wear time yet. Brulee is horrible, though. Very chalky and bleh. It barely shows up on the skin.

  27. kali says:

    OMG! You’re hair looks amazing!! I totally love it and it suits you very well.. loving the bangs! And great review as always.

    U look amazing with this lip and eyecombi- nars lip glosses r so pretty

  30. Marie says:

    You look great. Bangs look good on you. :)
    I think I prefer the Crazy Heart set. But this set is a good idea as a gift for friend who’s shy with colors.

  31. DonnaN says:

    OMG, you look amazing! Love the hair, the eyes and I must say…..you’ve now PEAKED my interest in the NARS glosses, which I’ve never tried before…..Off to Sephora.com to virtual shop…..

  32. Antonia says:

    You look great it your new hair, Karen! So modern and shiny!
    As for the glosses, I like Easy Lover!

    Well, helllooo Turkish Delight! Found this little nugget last spring, and now have a surplus ‘cuz its my FAV! Living in the North East and -ugh- already dealing with Chapped Lips, I’m on the hunt for a good lip exfoliator…these nude glosses and sticks really showcase any and all flaws. These colors look great on you-and I love the bangs!

  34. Julie says:

    You are gorgeous with your new hair! i love it!

  35. Marina says:

    Love your hair!

  36. Katrina says:

    Your hair looks totally adorable! These are cute, except turkish delight…I don’t know, that color isn’t thrilling me. Feel I’m too warm toned to wear it.

  37. Ariel says:

    Your hair looks amazing!

    I love NARS glosses! Believe the weird scent is lanolin, which I love because my lips are so prone to dryness.

  42. Hunny Bunny says:

    Aww shucks I really wanted to love this because I love Nars products but just can’t afford em. I mean they’re pretty but not worth that much moolah

  43. izzy says:

    Everyone always mentions the scent of these but I don’t mind it a all and it fades within seconds. I’m much more concerned with how smooth the product as and how long it lasts and NARS is always one of my favorites when it comes to glosses (..and eyeshadows… and blushes). I’m getting these in the mail next week as part of my Sephora F&F order I recently put in. Seeing the swatches here has me even more excited to receive them!

    Karen, the lipglosses are gorg, but your HAIR?! I LOVE your hair!! I wish I could wear bangs. They make me look like I’m in grade school all over again.

  45. Jasmine says:

    i don’t like the “Turkish delight” but the other ones are very pretty !
    i love your hairstyle :)

  46. Like everyone else I love your hair!

    My favourite is Easy Lover, which I already own. I think Sweet Revenge is lovely too. I love the bangs on you Karen, they really work for you.

    Ooh, I see that dreaded milkiness in Turkish Delight! :)

    My fave is definitely your karaoke tune, again. And I swear, you’re a mind reader sometimes. When we were talking about music last week, my mind was wandering to Push It. I still love that song and it’s one of the Hubs’ favorite to roll his eyes over!

  51. Mariko says:

    I love the swatches but I love your bangs even more!

  52. Kind of sad that Easy Lover is so sheer! It looked so vibrant in the tube!
    The NARS glosses do smell (and taste!) a bit overwhelmingly of plastic, but they are still my favorites!
