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.

Golden Flower Crown

Wet ‘n’ Wild Golden Flower Crown MegaGlo Highlighting Powder ($4.99 for 0.19 oz.) is medium gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The finish was very reflective, and it was slightly emphasizing of my skin’s natural texture at higher coverage levels.

The formula is supposed to be “highly pigmented” with a “silky smooth” texture that is “easy-to-blend.” The powder had a soft, lightly dusty texture in the pan that felt drier but was not difficult to use or to apply to the skin. It blended out beautifully on the skin, while the color adhered evenly and stayed on well for eight hours. It had semi-opaque as it had a tendency to sheer out a bit after initial application due to the dryness of the powder itself but was buildable to full coverage with two layers.

Indie Brands

The best is the creativity and freedom that the brands have to put out exactly the type of products they think are missing from the industry. The worst is dealing with drama and entrepreneurs who either do not know how to run a business and/or take everything personally.

Tribulation

NARS Tribulation Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil Set ($59.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes four Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in four new, limited edition shades. 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.”
