Bahama

NARS Bahama Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, medium plum with warm, rosy undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly across the lips and never tugged or dragged. The consistency was thin but lightweight and not clingy, which made it more comfortable to wear, though it was not hydrating. The color stayed on the lips well for four and a half hours.

The formula is supposed to be “long-lasting” with “rich” and “seamless color.” The texture has a more velvety feel: smooth, thinner but glides on easily, and doesn’t have a lot of wetness/creaminess. The pigmentation varied from shade to shade with most shades having semi-opaque coverage. They were easy to apply along the lips and comfortable to apply, as they did not tug. The formula lasted anywhere from three hours to six hours, and some shades were somewhat drying and others were non-drying.

On February 14th, there will be 10 new shades in the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($27.00 for 0.08 oz.), which is a jumbo-sized pencil that’s supposed to have “full-coverage color.” NARS included all the other permanent shades in the range when they sent samples, so I ended up swatching all of those shades as well. The new shades include: Get Off, Intriguing, Do Me Baby, Famous Red, Let’s Go Crazy, Pussy Control, Dirty Mind, Endangered Red, Unspoken, and Lonely Heart. The new shades launch exclusive at NARS and Sephora on the 14th and will be available at all other retailers May 4th.

Belle-Ile

NARS Belle-Ile Velvet Shadow Stick ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a brighter, medium copper with warm, orange undertones and a golden, pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer coverage, which I was able to build to nearly full coverage with three layers of product. The texture was smooth, slightly creamy but not quite as emollient as most shades in the range. There was some unevenness in the texture as I layered the color, though it did not appear patchy. I noticed creasing after six hours of wear.

Thessalonique

NARS Thessalonique Eyeshadow Duo ($35.00 for 0.14 oz.) features a soft, pale pink with a muted mauve–both have shimmer–that work really well together for a look but can easily be incorporated with other eyeshadows you own. I like that the two shades can create a rather foolproof look as a standalone product.

Asphalt Jungle

NARS Asphalt Jungle Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy mauve with pink and gold pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly with no visible streaking, but there was a bit of color that sat my lip lines. The glossiness and amount of shimmer made that less noticeable in person, though. It had a smooth, lightweight texture that was just lightly tacky overall. On me, the gloss wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing while worn.
