Nude lips with a dash of GOLD sparkles! Using Nars Larger than Life in Gold Digger, photo swatches and review
Are you ready for the weekend?! Yay!
OK, I like my lipsticks in all sorts of colours, reds, plums, corals and even pinks and bright fuchsia… But I hardly wear nude lips…unless I have the dash of gold sparkles (then that is technically not nude lips 😛 hahahah).
3 products are being discussed here on today’s post;
- Nars Larger than Life lipgloss in Gold Digger (£19) – sheer lip gloss with multi-dimensional pink and golden sparkle flakes
- Nars Sheer Lipstick in Dolce Vita (£18.50) – moisturising & sheer nude pink lip stick
- NYX Lip Pencil in Peekaboo (860) (£3.50) – a very long wearing pink base nude
Today’s star is the Gold Digger lipgloss, I’ve picked this up not long after the Nars makeup class I’ve attended many months ago. Since then, I have used it many times to jazz up many lip colours.
Initially, I would use my NYX lip liner pencil and layer Gold Digger on top. This combo looks amazing and somehow this gold sparkly lips is very wearable and casual for everyday 😀
Check out this close-up, the gold sparkles show up alot better!

Although, it looks great but the lip liner pencil is very drying even when worn with lip balm.
Cool, now we have Nars Sheer Lipstick in Dolce Vita… this lipstick is the sort you can just pick out of your purse and apply without a mirror! As it is pretty sheer in colour, the lipstick feels very moisturising on the lips. Although this is not long lasting, it is good while it’s on! :p
The photo below shows how Dolce Vita looks on its own, and with Gold Digger layered on top.
Whenever I have bright eye makeup on, I would tone down on the lips with this combo.
Thank you for reading, have a great weekend 😀
