NARS Stripped, Unlaced, Playpen Velvet Lip Glides

NARS Stripped Velvet Lip Glide ($26.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a light-medium beige with a hint of pink paired with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and while it didn’t appear streaky, the color settled into lip lines noticeably. This was one of the worst performers in the range as a result, even though it felt comfortable to wear over the three and a half hours it lasted. MAC Art of Seduction (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Insouciance (P, $32.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Liquid Passion (LE, $15.00) is warmer (85% similar).
