NARSissist (2017)

NARS NARSissist Velvet Lip Glide Set ($45.00 for 0.72 oz.) includes six miniature-sized Velvet Lip Glides in new, limited edition shades. The set is exclusively available at Ulta. I think if you’re a fan of the formula, the set is worth checking out as it contains quite a bit of product ($93.60 worth of Velvet Lip Glides) and overall, the formula was consistent with the permanent range of Velvet Lip Glides.

is supposed to be a hybrid between lipstick and lipgloss that is hydrating, richly pigmented, and comfortable to wear. They have a stronger color payoff, a non-tacky consistency, and a smoothness to their consistency that is a lot like a good lipstick, while they have a plusher, thicker texture that gives lips a plumper, fuller look along with a glossy sheen that is more like a gloss. Some of the lighter shades settled into lip lines, but it varied from shade to shade. The wear varied between three and five hours for me, which is more like a gloss than a lipstick. They develop a more “velvety” finish, which is code for “less shine” after two to three hours, and at that point, they tend to look more like a natural finish lipstick than a gloss. I would classify the formula more as a pigmented gloss than a glossy lipstick, if I had to put it firmly in one box. The formula has a vanilla scent but had no discernible taste to me.

Mustang

NARS Mustang Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil Set ($59.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes four Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in four new, limited edition shades. This is one of two sets that are available exclusively at Nordstrom for their Anniversary sale. The Velvet Matte Lipstick formula is supposed to have “rich, vivid pigments” with a “velvety matte finish” that is “non-drying.” I liked this set better than the Tribulation set, as the shades were more pigmented, longer-wearing, and more flattering applied to the lips.

Unfortunately, I was not able to finish testing the shades for wear before this set sold out online, but it may still be available at your local Nordstrom (it is an Anniversary sale exclusive). The Velvet Matte Lipstick formula is supposed to have “rich, vivid pigments” with a “velvety matte finish” that is “non-drying.”

NARS Angel Pride Cheek Palette ($59.00) includes four limited edition blushes (Angel Pride I through IV) along with permanent shades Hot Sand (blush) and Laguna (bronzer). The palette itself contained quite a bit of product, so there’s no worry about it not being value-packed. My concern was that the texture of the palette throughout felt stiffer, thinner, and drier compared to most of NARS’ standalone powder blushes/bronzers. All but one shade (Angel Pride III) applied fairly well to my cheeks and were not difficult to blend out, but I was expecting a more refined texture from NARS.

The Best & Worst of NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments

NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments
NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments

NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as “liquefied pigments with infinite matte color saturation for lasting, weightless wear.” It’s supposed to have “full coverage in one swipe” that “dries down instantly” for “smudge-resistant, carefree wear.” The formula has a very fluid consistency that is thin, smooth, but not at all watery, and the majority of shades were nearly opaque or opaque in a single layer.

The dry down started quickly but was forgiving as I maneuvered around the edges of the lips but remained a bit tacky when I pressed my lips together for over a half hour later, though as long as I did not press my lips together until five minutes post-application, the color did not lift. I have found the wear to be comfortable so far–non-drying–but not the longest-wearing nor the most budge-proof in liquid lipstick, as just sipping water, tea, or coffee caused color to transfer onto my cups.

There was plenty of coverage, so it still lasted through drinking but did start to break down noticeably during a meal. Even just touching the color after a half hour of wearing it yielded color on my fingertips. The formula had a soft, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.
