Turkish Delight in lipstick form?

Yes, I think I found it!


Whilst browsing the Maybelline colorsensational lipsticks in Superdrug the other day (yes - I was so happy with the ones in my goody bag that I went to explore more), I came across 108 Pink Pearl. I happened to have Nars Turkish Delight lipgloss in my bag, and couldn't contain my excitement when I saw that they were the same colour!

The Turkish Delight is the prettiest pinkie nude lipgloss colour you will ever find, however, it always rubs off very easily. But, the Pink Pearl has solved my problem! :)


When swatched on my hand, you can see that the Pink Pearl has a slight "mauve pearl" finish to it.. However, once it's on the lips, the colour is almost identical. The lipgloss tones down the silverish hue of the lipstick and creates a lovely finish.


Here, I have applied the Maybelline Pink Pearl lipstick, with the Nars Turkish Delight on top. It's the perfect combo for me! Yayy! :) However, you be your own judge!


If you are scared of nude lipsticks, then I would recommend this one for you, as it's very wearable and "safe", it will not wash the colour out of your face!
Also, I am aware that in the States have the Color Sensational range under different names, hunt it down! :)

Looks gorgeous with Turkish Delight it totally tones down the shimmer, I really liked the pink but not the silver shimmer when I looked at it in Superdrug. I just might have to go get it now to pair it with Nars.Great tip Muhsine.xx

@Holly yes when both are worn together it just looks perfect :) X

That combo is amazing.

It's so annoying we have a bigger range of those lipsticks where I live. You guys have 24 colours we have 48 colours, just under different names....

I guess it's swatch time :), I'm gonna hunt it down!

Thanks for this post hun.

That's a really good find!

I have the same issue with my Nars glosses - the lip lacquer pot stays on for a bit longer but the double-ended gloss I have just seems to vanish very quickly.

I'm so excited about this post! The lipstick is gorgeous and is so similar to Turkish Delight. I bought the gloss a month ago and love it, but haven't really worn it because it wears off so quickly.
Great find, thanks for sharing!

What an adorable color, and it looks great on you. On my weekend list: maybelline dream mousse blush and highlighter, and this lippie. I hope they are having a BOGO!

Thanks so much for posting this.
I think the lipstick looks better!
I've never thought to purchase any NARS lip products, because i've heard so many bad things about the scent,supposeingly like a gone bad plastic smell.

Marisa said...

I will have to check it out! It looks like such a great color!

Aicha! said...

It's perfect colour, i really love it :)

ellamarie84 said...

Love it! I have turkish delight but I don't like it because of the consistency and the plastic smell. I'll have to hunt this down! Thanks!

@petrichor i didnt wear a lipliner this time, but i would usually wear the L'oreal cappuccino, or mac oak lipliner. x
