One of my favorite lipstick formulas is NARS sheer finish. They’re a glossier lipstick and the translucency makes them incredibly wearable. I was thrilled to see that NARS introduced a new sheer nude, Little Darling, with its holiday collection. And I was so curious to see how it compared to NARS Cruising, another nude, albeit more pink, that I absolutely adore. Above, you can see the two next to each other and Little Darling, on the left, is a true nude with beige undertones.
Swatched next to each other, you can see just how pink NARS Cruising is in comparison. From my perspective, both are incredibly flattering and two of the best nude lipsticks I have ever tried. Both are sheer enough where you’re not getting corpse lips, rather a perfect nude.
