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.

The new formula 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.

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.

Done It Again

NARS Done It Again Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a deep brown with warm, red undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied fairly evenly, though there was a smidgen of color that settled into my lip lines. This shade took over an hour to look more matte (the photos were taken after a half hour) and was tackier compared to most shades in the range, though the color did not lift at least! It had a fluid consistency that was thin and spread easily across the lips. This shade wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

NARS Get It On Powermatte Lip Pigment ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a light-medium, rosy brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. While completely opaque, the lipstick did not dry down for an hour–I took photos after a half hour–and remained lightly tacky for the first three hours of wear. The texture was thin but very fluid and substantial, so there was plenty of product and great color payoff in a single layer. It cracked at my deeper lip line (my lower lip) noticeably and had a tendency to fade a bit more unevenly compared to other shades. It wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

NARS Bord de Plage Fall 2017 Highlighting & Bronzing Palette

Bord de Plage

NARS Bord de Plage Highlighting & Bronzing Palette ($59.00 for 0.66 oz.) contains four highlighters and two bronzers. If you’re familiar with spring’s Banc de Sable, then this palette might seem familiar; it has a similar formula and includes one shade from it as well (Rivage). The two bronzers–Laguna and Casino–are still available individually in the Sun Wash formula. The consistency of both the highlighters and bronzers is firmer in the pan with a smoother consistency that doesn’t kickup excess product in the pan but works better with a denser brush. The Sun Wash bronzer formula is designed to be sheerer, so they will work best for someone who wants a buildable bronzer. The highlighters can be used wet or dry with wet (well, damp) application yielding a stronger sheen and slightly more pigmented, depending on the shade. They are entirely usable dry, though, as they’re more pigmented dry than described.

It’s currently a Nordstrom exclusive but will be available August 4th everywhere else.
