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.

Rock with You

NARS Rock With You Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a muted, dark burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, though it was not fully opaque in one layer. The liquid lipstick felt smooth going on with a very thin, fluid quality that did not veer into watery territory, so the coverage was more even despite not being opaque. This shade wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

NARS Starwoman Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It was richly pigmented and had a very fluid, smooth consistency that was easy to spread across the lips for even, opaque coverage in a single layer. It took awhile to dry down; it was mostly dry within a few minutes, but there were small areas that took almost an hour to disappear. It wore well for six hours and was non-drying.

NARS Give It Up Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation, though it wasn’t fully opaque in a single layer. The consistency was lightweight, thin but not watery, and spreadable, which made it easy to work the product along the lips and edges of the lips. It dried down for the most part and stayed in place for five and a half hours. It was neither drying nor hydrating over time.
